Heard a couple of nightmare stories today with regards to the snow.

One where someone I know left for work at 5.45am, managed to get to his connecting bus stop in the next town on and then was sat there waiting for a bus that would run in the snow until 2.00pm before eventually giving up.

Madness given it's only a little bit of snow...

Looking at the front of the London Evening Standard this evening you'd think that the Ice Age had arrived and that we were all doomed!!  Piddly bit of snow that hasn't really settled.  Having sadi that, it was a bit slippery on the way home so it's turning to ice which is worse....

Spot on HL. It's only started to lie this afternoon in Woolwich because we've had it persistently now for about five to six hours. The snow isn't the issue though, it's when it freezes over tonight that it is, it's going to be trecherous for everyone.

Well, Sheffield has been well and truly crippled. Zero chance of me getting anywhere. Snow is just above my knees at the moment. Plow has just gone down the road but made no impact at all. It's eerily quiet on the streets. I normally have a groan and moan at the inevitable standstill when an inch of the white stuff lands, but this time I cant have a moan. There is just no way to keep all roads in the city clear with this kind of downfall..... I've never seen owt quite like it. No exageration.

 No snow, nothing.  Not even any ice on the roads round my way, completely gone!  Just the biting winds that made me cry all the way to work  

Got on a Tube, packed full of people dressed for Arctic expedition and a girl gets on in t-shirt and jeans   Got to be a Geordie!

My home region of West Lothian seems to be taking a really harsh battering at the hands of the snow. All public transport has been suspended, there is a blanket closure on all the schools and the Council have just implemented their severe weather emergency plan. I was on the phone to my mum last night and it sounds impossible, they just don't seem to be able to keep on top of it. Whenever the roads are being cleared, the snow is just continuing to fall and cover them all again. Some residential roads are covered in 3 feet of snow.

It doesn't stop Morrisons opening though, my best friend and her boyfriend were asked by the manager to make an attempt to walk the four miles to work because they were desperately needed as they were so short staffed. They walked the journey in the deep snow to find that they were not short staffed and there wasn't a soul in the whole shop. Arseholes.

Here in Thurrock, the snow has been falling steadily for about 24 hours now, but its not heavy and well compared to back home, I think we have it incredibly lucky right now, so I won't start complaining just yet or pretending I can't get to work.

We've got more ice than snow here at the moment, which caused me to prang the Mrs's car yesterday. Trying to corner coming into my road and both the brakes and the steering wouldn't react, causing me to slide for a bout 3 metres, strraight into the side of a car parked on the bend. Gutted.

I made it into work today (took me over an hour by car).

Apparently they were letting folks go home early (2.30 on Monday) the past couple of days, so fingers crossed we get to bail early today, too.

And I've just looked at the weather report for the next 24 hours for where I live.  Fuck.

Shame.

It's idiots like that that are the real problem. People round here had plenty of warning it was going to snow, and we've got idiots parked on the first hill we have to go down and just round at the bottom - it didn't occur to them to actually put their cars somewhere else in advance. Several people in my cul de sac are parked about half a mile away so they have a better chance of getting to a clear road, and just walking the rest of the way.

Saw the oh-so lovely scene tonight on my way home of two youths pelting an elderly man with snowballs as he tried to push his shopping trolley down through the ice in the street.

One word. Twats. A couple of days off school and they find their entertainment through abuse. Personally I'd like to leave them out overnight in but Human Rights would intervene I'm sure.

Still makes me incredibly angry though.

I have just taken my parents dog for a walk. It is like walking through razor blades with the wind cutting right through you and the paths are sheet ice.

At least someone is enjoying it...


And he has the right idea what to do afterwards...

About a foot of snow here in West Sussex (Horsham, at least). No trains running, so 'working' from home.

Went to Sainsbury's earlier, who have almost run out of milk (so people were panic buying the last of the Cravendale). However, I cleverly stocked up on Mince Pies and Twiglets like the sly cunning fox I am. Plenty of ale in the loft too, so I'm all set.

Much the same in North Wales. Had about half an hour of heavy snow on Tuesday night which left roughly half an inch of snow. Was all gone by yesterday afternoon though. Had a few light polystyrene snow showers since which has frozen into sheet ice on the pavements, which is always a joy .

The University of Dundee's satellite receiving station captured this image of how the heavy snow of the past week has affected the UK.

The picture, which was received at 1145 GMT on Thursday from Nasa satellite Terra, shows almost the entire country covered by a blanket of snow.
