We had a lot of rain, yesterday, which turned into snow, in the early evening. At about 22:30 it had nearly stopped so I cleaned it all off the car, which was 2-3 inches thick, over most of the car, but easy to clear off, as it hadn't frozen, and that worked nicely, as this morning the car looks clear, of ice, and snow.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 35 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Apparently the river Bollin is about to spill over.

Residents of Leigh were evacuated

Been out on our weekly food shop this morning and the Cricket Ground is fully submerged.

Even the Whippets were wearing Wellies.

Very "noisy" last night but fairly sunny here now - a pretty cold "breeze" though.

There is a flood alert at both rivers upstream from us. It normally it takes another two days for the additional rain to make its way down the Thames, but I think this time the worst has affected the north.

Started snowing here in W. London within the last 30 mins, and now coming down fairly heavily - wonder how long it will last??

Whatever sprinkling we had here has already melted away.

Proper snow has started falling here in Wirral. We've had sprinklings a few times and a couple of hail showers but this is the first snow falling that could be used to make a snowman.

Only about an inch here, but large flakes coming down.

It's almost scenic.

Just rain here but they have snow to the north east of us (Flers, before anyone thinks I'm referring to Durham).

It's snowing really hard now.
All the wife's done is to gaze through the window.
If it comes down any harder, I'll have to let her in.

I'll get my coat...

The picture on the BBC site looks like an accident waiting to happen

Isn't that the "do your kids glow in the dark" village?
