    Just a few pics taken up in the hills of Oldham/ Saddleworth today of blocked lanes, the drifts are pretty impressive, a couple of metres in places. I feel sorry for the poor bloke who has lost his land rover though, might be a while before he gets it back lol. Anyway, hope you enjoy.......

    Fantastic shots. But own up, it's your car isn't it?!!!

    Noooooooo...........the shame of it! Its funny to see 4x4 in a ditch or stuck in a snow drift ;o) I was going to get one myself, but opted for another convertible, bit of a strange decission to say that A) we get a fair bit of snow up here & :help: we didnt have a summer last year!!! lmao

    Great pictures there, serious amounts of snow.

    I have just taken a few this afternoon, the snow plough that i saw turned round because the road had dissappeared under the snow drift. :doh:

    Thanks for sharing.

    Lol. I think it would be a tad optimistic for me to buy some snow shoes, but imagine the looks i would get walking down the street with a pair of dunlop rackets on my feet!

    Ooo get you!
