Fine dusty snow but now turning little thicker in Milton Keynes, Vredestein Wintracs performing like a champ!

Don't envy you. An adult with chickenpox

Sheffield: Bugger all really since yesterday evening. It's still hanging around but nearly all roads are clear.

Went up to my parent's house mid-morning and their road had a light dusting. I found out for the first time in nearly 2 years just how shit these cars are when it's slippy. In a FWD I wouldn't have given it a thought.

Yes,that would of been our route,but we've abandoned our plans now,so thanks for the heads up

Glad I set off from Hampshire to Warwickshire lastnight!

Roads around Warwickshire are not too bad but there's plenty of snow.

Ordered some Yokohama W Drive 902's for the car as I've had winter tyres every other winter and I'd rather not have to be towed from a ditch in this wether as many have already been from what I've seen so far today.

About an inch in Buckhurst Hill - main roads are coping well - side roads not. Taxis stopped running.

We've got about 6" of snow and it is still falling. I had to go to my kids school as they decided to close. I ended up collecting 6 kids in total from our village.

Feeling smug because the Nokian Winters came in useful we were noticeably more stable than most others on the road. Even 4x4 were dribbling along at 20mph.

That's why the Touran in this picture is clear of the snow.

Only just started to come down properly at this end. About an inch if that lying. Roads are only just starting to have a coating.

^^ Very clever

Snowing heavily in Belfast but not lying yet.
Spend 3/4 hr putting the winter wheels on last night. Looks like it'll have been time well spent, lol
First time to try the Hankooks in anger..

Guildford - Hampshire/Surrey - oh we've got it bad! Left work at 11, got home for 2!! (only 20 miles which usually takes 35-40 mins).
Interesting drive in the 1998 C class Merc.
-- The 335 is elsewhere getting a makeover

Upside: Nissan 4x4 was the best thing since sliced bread this PM over here.. wouldn't have thought it's snowing at all the way it handled.
