All good here at the moment thankfully, except for rubbish/recycling containers all over the cul-de-sac.

She's snowing on us right now.

Hope everyone is ok.

I'll have to visit your area one day, snow seems to follow me. Few years back at Easter stayed in a static caravan down on south coast. It was cold, but the people there said it never snowed there so not to worry. Well it did I when I was there. Coldest holiday ever!

Was only a few light flakes blowing in the wind earlier. It's just starting to turn festive in the last 5 mins though. Here's a few flakes for you...

hi all, very windy through the night, gainmaster is still up but doing a dance, surrounding villages have lost power and we have lost water pressure, can have a cuppa but no shower, 4 degrees, wind and rain.

Got the felt off somebody's shed on the fence at the bottom of my garden this morning when i went out for a good look round.
Not sure where it's from but not off the neighbours well not from what i can see.
Garden that runs along the bottom of mine has what looks like a quilt cover wrapped around a fruit tree unless she is trying to keep it warm lol.

3 ridge tiles made a bid for freedom and punched two holes in the roof on the way down. 

Biggest concern was being on the A66 in a 44 tonne lorry at 10pm. Managed to make it over along with another few wagons but loads got stuck. Only three of the 10 of us doing Scotland trunks made it, the rest got stuck there. Mate of mine rang me at 12pm on Saturday and was still stuck up there 14hrs after I passed him.

Took my flag pole down as the Union Flag had been shredded, it was only temporally attached to a garden swing, and the whole lot was dancing about the garden.

All good for me, it was pretty bad but I only have wire antennas up and they survived no problem at all.
