    A white Easter...well this is a first! It's snowing hard with about 1cm so far on the ground. We have decided that from now on our family will swap easter and Christmas around so we get more white Christmases

    Nada over here :biggrin:
    Never mind, they'd still make me come into work even if it was snowing. They'd probably send somebody over in the 4x4 to get me. Mean barstewrads they are.

    No snow here, although I do have a large sand dune in my garden due a dust storm.

    Watford: looked like we were going to get some proper snow for a while, ended up with a patchy covering which is now largely gone. At least the wind's dropped, might get out later.

    :biggrin:. It's the wet nose innit?

    I'm East of Manchester on the edge of the peak district (near Glossop). The Snake Pass is just behind the TV aerial in the third photo but you'd have to know it's there.

    Longers - you are only up the road from me - you must have got soaked early this morning - the roads were like rivers as the snow started to melt - you didn't do the hilly loop did you. I could have gone out later, but was cooking lunch and doing a small bit of DIY...after 3 hours in the snow whilst it lasted....did some sledging and snow man building with the kids....
