I was right about the ice layer. I spent an hour this morning fending off other vehicles from parked cars before I managed to get my own Freelander down to the bottom main road. There was no way I was going to get up the road to the the top main road. The journey to work took 2 hours 40 minutes rather than the usual 35 minutes.

China receives worst snow falls in 60yrs

Tuesday, January 05, 2010 » 01:22pm

Schools and businesses across northern China have been closed, following the worst snow falls in 60 years.

Schools and businesses across northern China have been closed, following the worst snow falls in nearly 60 years.

Heavy snow and ice glazed roads have caused traffic chaos in Beijing as residents and office workers join emergency crews, in trying to clean the streets.

More than 30 highways have been closed and classes in around 3500 schools have been suspended with parts of the country blanketed in as much as 30cm of snow.

Sub-zero temperatures and icy winds are likely to remain until the weekend meaning the snow could linger throughout the week.

Seoul Buried In Heaviest Snowfall In 70 Years

by The Associated Press

SEOUL, South Korea January 4, 2010, 10:33 am ET

Seoul residents slogged through the heaviest snowfall in modern Korean history after a winter storm dumped more than 11 inches (28 centimeters) Monday, forcing airports to cancel flights and paralyzing traffic in South Korea's bustling capital.

It is raining in Lancaster, but the road surface is below freezing and so we have a nice sheet of ice developing! It should turn to snow later if it keeps falling.

Yesterday we visited the farmhouse in east Lancs and had to walk the final mile up the iced up road and through the drifts. It was beautiful in the sunshine but I don't know how long the oil supply will hold out to keep it above freezing.

Still not a flake seen on this part of the South coast of England.

There is a light coating of frost on the cars and North facing surfaces - sometimes it doesn't melt all day, but not a bit of snow.

We have some bright clear days, we have some heavy overcast ones where the lights are on all day - but someone else is getting the snow.

Another Met Office warning since my last, warnings now extend to Thursday including "significant accumulations, especially over hills" with tonight coldest, but heaviest falls tomorrow night.

Snow clearing will be a slow business as each new layer is packing into its predecessor, and our local authorities just aren't equipped or manned to cope. With temperatures just hovering around freezing there is enough melt-then-refreeze activity to make everything glassy and if the wind picks up and goes north-easterly as predicted this is going to be unpleasant. Very glad not to be going to sea any time soon.

I'll try to link to a couple of photos I grabbed from a webcam just before Christmas, Flickr, in case anyone would like to see the rare spectacle of Whitby fish quay with snow.

"Our house" is the first picture (link above) is a 4-unit apartment building that we bought 10 years ago. The trees in front are maple and aggressively attack the house and the surrounding power lines but they are here to stay. The house itself was built in 1870 as a single family house but around World War 2, according to the newspapers we found stuffed in a wall petition, it was divided into four apartments. We've done quite a lot of renovation, converting storage space into living space. Now we need to see what we can do to better insulate this gift that keeps giving to the oil company. We're scheduling an infrared scan next Wednesday!

Cheerily,

Yeah, been snowing off and on for a fortnight, and heavy falls predicted for the next 3-4 days as well. We get cut off for a few hours at a time most years, but not so far this winter, however we seldom get sustained snowing like this so it is unusual conditions all round.

Being at sea level snow seldom lies here in Whitby for more than a few hours (it's the surrounding moors that cop it, cutting us off) but this lot has never cleared properly since the first falls. It is right down to the harbourside too, almost unheard of.

Unbelievably, yes! Another 2-3 inches on top of what was leftover from the snow of 3-4 weeks ago. At this rate, I shall have to quit calling this the Banana Belt of Colorado! It is really pretty but it takes ages for them to get to the side streets for clearing and sanding and most people don't seem to know how to drive in it.

It's now turning to our normal winter rain, but here in Portland (West) I got back from sunny San Diego yesterday just a couple hours before the roofs and trees and streets got covered with at least a couple inches of snow.    My neighbors' little boy (3 y o) was in hog heaven making a snowman and learning how to toss little snowballs at mom and dad.   I had been home long enough to have the heat back up to about 70º and be able to watch the lovely white flakes from the cosy interior of my house, with my kitty cat snuggled up beside me.   (She snuggles a lot when I've been away for a while!)

Portland doesn't handle snow well -- we don't get enough of it, often enough to warrant the investment in top-notch snow-removal equipment -- and there were traffic jams, fender benders, abandoned cars, and even some buses stranded.   But it soon warmed up to the mid-30ºs or higher, so now we just have some slush left.

Oh, well, it was pretty while it lasted.

Remarkably, we had a white xmas here in Fort Worth and North Texas. WesleyS moved away too soon. What a lost opportunity!

I actually dug out some sand and rock salt to sprinkle so guests arriving late in the evening didn't kill themselves walking to the door, and so they could get their vehicle up the driveway. It isn't super steep, but one must slow to a stop to turn in, leaving no momentum to get up the icy surface without some help.

Unless something breaks overnight, weatherwise, we're going to be in pain. We have quite a bit of snow on the ground- maybe 8 or 9 inches - and then today it started raining. Of course, with the ground frozen there's nowhere for the water to go. Talk about sloppy.

However, we were told the temperatures were rising so no worries. BUT- instead- it is freezing and very slippery tonight. If it doesn't warm by morning no one is going anywhere much.

We have not had snow - someone must have got ours by mistake.

Here we are, Christmas Day - a lot of people have had real trouble travelling to where they wanted to be for the holidays, and all we have had is a few scrapings of windscreens due to the low temperatures.

The South Coast of England is fairly mild in winter, usually, so the cold is different, and it seems to have done little else but rain for two months now.

It could be worse I supose, but I did feel just a little jelous of all those with snow to play with.

In Juneau, Alaska, it is snowing heavily at the moment but supposed to garner only another 3 to 5 inches. Unless it stops soon we're going well beyond that.
