We're under a new Winter Storm Advisory- this is the 4th one. They had been expecting rising temperatures and rain each but have had to revise each day. At this point, we, the common people, just dun know.

but it sure is pretty. On this morning's walk with my dog I tramped a few exits through the pillowed snow berms to the street with an eye toward crossing - but I found few places low enough to enter the other side. At a certain point I planned to tramp a path to the pier but the wharf itself was too deep for tramping and I had to give it up. My dog is ecstatic- she rolled and tunnelled and periodically disappeared from view.

"melter": the stuff they put on the streets and sidewalks (pavements) to break down the snow and ice. I don't know what kind they are using right now.

We've gotten a lot of snow in Juneau, Alaska, the last couple of days and it is beautiful. However, they have forecast rising temperatures for this weekend so it could get messy.

I just looked outside and it is raining, so even the pitiful little bit of snow we had has been washed away.

I supose I should be glad that this part of the world - Poole, on the South coast of England, is not subject to the cruel weather that most of the UK has suffered, but I can't help feeling rather deprived.

We had cold temperatures and ice, but all the snow we have been promised just never materialised, even though the weather forecast showed snowflakes right over us.

I supose that we might wake up tomorrow and find a foot of snow on the ground, but I would not bet on it.

In the UK

My brother has been stuck in snow on the A38 just below Exeter where there has been an accident, for over 5 hours now. His wife saw his car on the BBC News at 6pm tonight, becuase she recognised the number plate,
He has texted me and seems to be OK

Seems like he is snuggling into 3 beautiful voluptuous very fit young ladies, who have abandoned their cars for the comfort of his. :-)

Well, we are due for a change. It is still raining today and there is a lot of water pooling on top of the frozen ground. But they have now issued a Winter Storm Warning from about 9:00 tonight to tomorrow afternoon, for 6 up to 16 inches of snow. Oh, and wind.

I'm excited! Doesn't take much to excite me though.

The only thing I don't like about our snow this winter is that they have changed the melter- for the last few years what they had used is maple-nut icecream colored melt so it never got ugly. This year they're using some kind of dark substance that looks muddy. Poo.

Back to the start of this thread in October... the early snow storms we had caused so much crop damage that the USDA has now declared our county (and 8 other Montana counties) a disaster area. Potato farmers here were particularly hard hit, losing 1/3 of their crops. It makes all qualified farms and ranches eligible for low interest emergency loans from USDA's Farm Service Agency. Farmers in eligible counties have eight months from Tuesday's declaration to apply for loans to help cover part of their losses.

Nope. We're into rain at the moment- and for the next few days, apparently. In the transition from snow to warm, though, we had icy conditions that made walking a problematic occupation. I found myself in trouble twice in 24 hours. couldn't decide whether to retreat the way I had come or chance it further on. The second time I suddenly discovered the proper method: instead of lifting my feet, I skated. Worked.

We have had one little snow shower, an inch or so at the most, but the ice is really bad, all the moisture in the air is being frozen out onto every surface - and untreated roads and pavements are trecherous underfoot.

When I went out I took ski poles with walking stick rubber 'feet' on, and although I only needed them once, I will not be venturing out without them until the ice melts.

The weather forecast has been for more snow in this area several times, and been wrong, but I suspect that tomorrow, Sunday, the wind will push so hard that the snow will reach us in the end.

My daughter flew from Heathrow to Chicago yesterday and the jet stream is so weak it took an hour less than scheduled.

Yes, again here in Beverley, (East Yorkshire UK).

My daughter took 1.5 hours to travel 4 miles across Hull and said 3" fell in that time. I'm 10 miles north and it's diong the same here. I've seen -5 on my car thermometer but my twin, south of Edinburgh has reached -11 and has 10" of snow and the schools have closed. Further north, my sister in Blairgowrie mentioned -12 but up there the locals are more used to harsh weather and their schools are still open.... but had to pay out their 'coffee morning' profits to get someone to clear the playground!!
I'm so glad not to have to venture out and hope that the local football match is cancelled as it'll cause so many to risk the conditions. I know it's always important for the games to be played but sense should prevail and those Chelsea fans trying to travel to Hull will need to set off tonight to have a chance to get here for the early kick off (1245 I think)...It's on due to be on TV too.
Better go before the old man sees this comment. He's all set with his thermals and sheepskin jacket!
PS I love the snow all crisp, white and pretty, it's the thawing slush and muck that causes such trouble...time to go clear the ice rink at the end of the driveway!!

Terrible to think how many people have been killed in road accidents because of roads that aren't being gritted..along with so many who have broken bones from slipping on untreated pavements.

A couple of suggestions from Vermont:

1) Get a pair of those gizmos that slip on over your boots and have steel cleats for ice. If they aren't available in Britain, get LL Bean to ship overseas.

2) Drive more slowly. (I readily admit that this only helps if everyone does it, but you gotta start somewhere.)

OK, 10,000 plus schools are closed in the UK, at least 250 in Devon alone, no pavements gritted so people are walking in the roads, no side roads gritted, so there is hardly any milk because the lorries can't get to the farms and dairies.

Down here, the councils say they're so low on salt that the priority has to be the main roads. Our buses are only using main routes and there's only a few inches of the stuff on the ground.

Because so many children are home, everything else is suffering too, as parents have to stay home to care for their children...

On Radio Devon someone rang in to suggest they spray the roads with sea water..and the councils went "Doh, that could work!"...and they're asking farmers to help clear the roads with their tractors and farming equipment...


The thing is....winters were always like this when I were a nipper, although the wind chill is a bit different, I admit.

So, how come the Canadians still function normally in -40degrees yet the UK falls apart instantly as soon as the first flakes start to flutter...?

And are the councils going to now start keeping in proper stocks of grit and salt, or will their accountants tell them how financially wasteful it is?

Terrible to think how many people have been killed in road accidents because of roads that aren't being gritted..along with so many who have broken bones from slipping on untreated pavements.

Anyways ups, I'm off to find me two cows now..and start my own dairy! :0)

Can't tell the difference between weather and climate. There's quite a lot of energy in the atmosphere in order to evaporate water from the oceans and move it around to where it meets cold air and precipites. Think of energy, not temperature.

And the substance GfS refers to is better for the atmosphere than hot internal gases some people generate.

Snowed-In Brits boost adultery website
Wed Jan 6, 2010 11:39pm GMT

LONDON (Reuters) - Britons snowed in by the wintry weather have been flocking to an extra-marital dating site in the last 24 hours.

IllicitEncounters.com, which provides a platform for married people to conduct affairs, said on Wednesday it has seen an unexpected increase in visitors over the past 24 hours, and received a record number of new profiles on Wednesday morning.

The website said most new members are registering from areas worst hit by this week's extreme weather, including Hampshire, Berkshire, and the West Country, and the site has taken on several temporary staff members to cope with the rush.

"In light of these figures, I'd be interested to see how much work those 'working from home' have actually done," IlicitEncounters.com spokeswoman Sara Hartley said in a statement.

"Perhaps these wives and husbands have just been waiting for a time when they could join, away from the eyes of their work colleagues and, most importantly, their partners..."

The website said it has gained 2,567 new members in the last six days, suggesting that January will be its busiest month ever.

It says it has more than 350,000 members in Britain and that its aim is to create a safe and non-judgemental environment where married men and women can meet each other.
