Only a sprinkling here so far. Was expecting more given they seem to have been forecasting doomsday for last 3 days. But I think we are expected to get more tomorrow. Stay safe and warm everyone.

Very bad here since yesterday evening. The minor roads from the coast over to the A1 are blocked and A1 is at a standstill in places with many minor accidents and cars and lorries getting stuck. Advice is not to travel at all if possible.

Traffic at a standstill on the A1 between Warenford and Ellingham in Northumberland. Picture by Hazel Bettison.

It is a complete white-out outside at minute with heavy snow and hail and can barely see the trees in the field behind my house. My weather station says it's -3 degrees Censius outside and 30mph winds means it feels more like -10. But we're in a well insulated house, with wood burner on, and very cosy indeed. Stay safe everyone.

We dealt better with winter conditions years ago, what on earth is coming to our country. Its only a bit of snow. We had this yearly decades ago, now it makes headline news.

The blame is clearly down to BREXIT and Short

More people lived within walking distance of work and schools years ago. Plus there are far more cars, and far more vans and lorries clogging up the roads, delivering all the stuff people cannot seem to live without these days.

We also had better public services, better bus services, decent road budgets, more ploughs and gritters to keep roads clear. Council budgets don't stretch to cover anything but A roads these days and even then in exceptional weather like this they cannot keep up.

Seahouses is currently completely cut off with all approach roads having massive snow drifts. Local farmers are trying to clear them. If someone has a serious medical emergency there is no way an ambulance could get here. And the nearest A and E is more than an hour's drive away, in good driving conditions. Today it could take hours.

And yes, i do blame Thatcher and all her neo-liberal acolytes since.

Seeing the national news, looks like we have been fortunate here, pity we get no help from the council.

I love the sun in Cypruss, not at the height of the heat mind but, after 10 days I yearn for the weather back in blighty, 2 weeks is more than enough for me. Mind I dont like the snow but we dont get that much.

This is out third 'winter' in our home here in Crete and with the dogs in and out 24/7 the doors are NEVER closed and truthfully we have NEVER had our heating on once in those three years ( I had it serviced when we moved in and tried it then for 5 minutes to check rads didn't need bleeding ) , and we have full oil fired central heating and no somber or open fire ,,,, I reckon this has been our coldest winter but lowest temp at night has 'dropped' to approx +6 degrees , and yes yesterday I have caught the sun sat outside reading , my face looks like a boiled beetroot . Okay folks wrap up well I'm just off onto the patio to cook my back and think about a barbie this afternoon .

A neighbour after parking his car on his hilly drive and going indoors, came back out and found it had slid down and smashed into  a wall, wrecking one side of his car. Very expensive!

Walking back through a field where the kids go sledging, one young girl was hurtling down the hill on a large inner tube.. and smashed into the hawthorn edge and barbed wire fence at the bottom of the hill. Her mum and dad were there and she seemed okay.

Be careful out there
