    Yes, hope it happens at the weekend, for the reasons you state. Love experiencing a nice white, 'winter wonderland' landscape, and watching little white snowflakes fall, when outside its quite dark and moody, whilst you're wrapped up all cosy inside the house beside a roaring log fire!

    That *feeling* is just so nice and comforting

    That big storm came early lol. Still blowing too... been very windy n wet. Snow forcast for tomorrow, although its already in the rain occasionally. Life is going to be challenging for a while. Some neighbours gardens are already showing signs of warzonelike destruction. Sheds etc scattered.

    Shame it's not falling on a weekend, but if it snows tomorrow, we'll be looking forward to it, especially Del, as she's off work

    I've booked Friday off as judging by the forecast it might be a big one here. 12 hours of snow from Thursday afternoon onward.
