    nearly 700ft, nothing especially high. Altitude made no difference whatsoever in this event, my dad got stuck at Sellafield (right by the sea) and had to walk all the way home, he didn't get home till tea time on the 7th!

    yes, it was a good'un, the only one to come close around there was late feb 2001. I can remember watching Look North on the saturday, it had rained and started to thaw in Kirkland but the poor Look North reporter was stood by one of the trans pennine roads, probably the A66, getting battered by snow and nearly blown off his feet while a load of snow ploughs tried in vain to keep the road open. With the first fall and the Saturday storm your area must have been practically buried?

    An event which came close to Feb 1996 synoptically especially for Wales, Western Counties of Midlands, NW England and parts of Scotland was the March 12th 2006 event. Even here, milder air lost out and the weather stayed cold for a couple of days more.

    Whilst not delivering the huge snowfall amounts of Feb 1996, it was still a good event for the above mentioned areas. I think even areas right on the West coast of England such as Blackpool saw quite a lot of snow on Mar 12th 2006.

    There was 13cm level snow at Lancaster with 2m drifts and nearby Morecambe had its heaviest snowfall since 1947. In addition the maximum temperature at Hazelrigg, Lancaster University Weather Station, on the 6th was only -1.2C.
