Same scenario Here. I am due in at work at 12pm which is 5 miles down a country road. I'm not going to risk it, Arriva aren't running any buses (they are bloody useless) and I have never driven in snow like this before so I am not even going to attempt it,

Does anyone think luck may change for us here in East kent who only got a light sprinkling like icing sugar?

BBC are saying maybe sleet/snow 3pm onwards but yesterday they said the showers here would be more of rain and it snowed for about half hour giving a dusting.

Is the wind direction going to change to a more Northerly in the next few hours?, Met Office seem to suggest that this may happen. I f so are we in South East Kent going to get more snow later on today?? Anyone?

Rather chaotic scene outside my office window at the crossroads, people slipping over as they cross the road, car at the lights on a steep hill wheelspinning and not moving forward, police out with their shovels. Lol

Proof that it wasn't just snow that was a problem yesterday, big wind and big seas off of Lowestoft.

Film taken by my husband of a tug having a real struggle. Posted this once but the topic closed straightaway.

Met radar shows a band of showers heading south, currently over Norfolk looks like more snow is possible for me!

Thanks for sharing that with us. It was certainly very wild, and I for one wouldn't have liked to be out there in those conditions.
