One trick I've learned in recent years... Rubber gloves (like medical gloves) under your wooly/thermal gloves, and you'll not worry about the cold from the snow.

You feel cold of sorts, but without your skin getting wet it's more of a tolerable feeling and you can carry on making snowmen and having snowball fights (Sorry Qikz & Zil) for hours.

Snow in Milton Keynes. It coincided perfectly with our central heating packing up. :x

Been snowing heavily in Notts since about 1pm and we've now had more snow than we've had for quite a few years. Totally wrecked the street by building a snowman with the kids.

We had a huge, single rumble of thundersnow at about 06:37 which lasted for half a minute, and apparently it snowed a little in the morning, but by the time I actually woke up and started the day all the evidence was gone. :( Blue skies most of the afternoon. Gutted.

Given the weather, could it be something as simple as a frozen condensate pipe?

No, the boiler lost all pressure on Thursday night. I tried to top it up and water was leaking all over. Called out a gas engineer on Friday and he sort of went "oft". Valve pumps have gone, the filling loop needs replaced. He's had to order several parts and it will take a few hours to fix it. Looking at a couple of hundred for parts alone.

Getting a few inches tonight, gonna get solid coverage. It's the wet kind that makes surfaces slippery so I'll have to be careful driving.

You have (in normal times) a cinema, you lucky bastard.

All Warminster ever gets is charity shops, and even they're closed now!

Serious bait. :shifty:

After the snow tomorrow comes rain, honestly don't know if it'll be safe to drive. It'll be above freezing, but just barely, so I don't know if the rain will just freeze on impact.

It’s lush, too. Pre-COVID I rinsed Limitless for three years. I saw over 100 movies in two of those years (only dipping under 100 in the year when we had a newborn!

Chucking it down here. Was really odd, was raining, then I went in to VR for a few hours, take the headset off and there's snow everywhere.

Snow Update for WEST BERKSHIRE!

Annoyingly tiny flurries - similar to Flying Ant Day.
