An ice age good enough to bring the Mammoths back would do.... ;)

They don't even start plowing here until it's 2 inches.

They'll never plow here as there are no snow plows!

Plenty of gritters about on the roads tonight, which is next to useless if snow falls.

Forecast is for 6-8" here tonight/tomorrow, which to be honest, with no snow plows, no winter tyres, no snow chains & very few people with experience of driving on snow, will just about cripple us. (You can guess it's a very infrequent event here!)

I'm thinking a lot of it will thaw as it falls, as it's still rather warm and the snow is only an hour away and things won't be so bad as the Met Office are telling us currently.

Winning while waiting to see the snow. Lastnight RAF Scampton recorded -11C (12F), and it stayed at -4C all day. No problems starting the car, and have done so at down to -20C.
It's good to be back amongst friends and colleagues

Won't be taking the car anywhere today anyway :( The early snow froze into a sheet of black ice and now several inches have already fallen on top and it's coming down in sheets still.
