    I have finally got round to resising the majority of all my pics so i can now post them :(

    Dec 5th snow event <_<

    Heavy Snow began at around 3am and dumped 10-15cm of snow, at around 6am the snow went light and patchy, suprisingly at around 10am the snow went very heavy for another hour, fortunatley the snow didnt turn to rain like the bbc had predicted.

    These two pictures are my favourite, they look like a christmas card photo post-8968-1234976532_thumb.jpg post-8968-1234976636_thumb.jpg

    Feb 2nd 09

    Heavy snow started at 3:30pm and lasted until 4am (moderate after 10pm), the snow piled up on the 5cm of snow allready on the ground, but it took longer on snow free ground, by 7pm the roads have around 3-4cm of snow on them (bear in mind this road is busy), while paths in excess of 10cm. Throughout the night the winds remained moderate leading to some good drifts, 50cm+ snow especially round the slightly hilly golf course. By morning (5:30am) the snow had stopped, the top layer of snow (1cm) is completley frozen, underneath is the soft stuff, the snow slowly began to melt at around 9am but temps really dive bombed and the water that was dripping of the trees froze instantly (see pics below) so thawing isnt going to be an issue here. The roads in Lower parts are mostly clear, as it melts really fast on the roads but not on paths at all. Here are some pics of what i got, bear in mind i took these pics at 2pm so a bit more was probably there earlier (especially on roads). Also around 3 snow ploughs have gone on my road (never seen them before), which has affected snow depths.

    Ground-15.9cm

    Drifts- 35.3cm in back garden, golf couse, 50cm plus

    Grass-20.2cm

    Front on curved part-23.4cm

    LBA-28cm (on runway). Also LBA is exposed while i have many trees walls etc stopping high depths.

    Table top-23cm

    shows how deep it is post-8968-1234976958_thumb.jpg post-8968-1234977072_thumb.jpgpost-8968-1234977118_thumb.jpg post-8968-1234977170_thumb.jpg Frozen water hanging of snow post-8968-1234977213_thumb.jpg post-8968-1234977263_thumb.jpg post-8968-1234977307_thumb.jpg post-8968-1234977376_thumb.jpg Snow submeregs the plants ! -post-8968-1234977501_thumb.jpg post-8968-1234977541_thumb.jpgpost-8968-1234977585_thumb.jpgpost-8968-1234977644_thumb.jpg Good idea of depth (bear in mind the table is blocked by 3 walls and it was windy so not true depth) post-8968-1234977714_thumb.jpg

    Pics above show the golf course 5 days later, the lakes are fully frozen with thick lying snow, there are very large icicles hanging of the houses nearby, and some duck foot prints as well <_<
