    First photo from 6.45am, second photo from just now. And it's still going, pretty heavily...

    That looks deep. We have a few inches but it's raining now so the snow is washing away.For once I'm not panicking as am off work at the moment. Usually I dread snow, living on a steep hill means driving is a nightmare.

    Nothing. It has been raining all night (or at least it was raining every time I woke up). It isn't even white on the hill behind the town. Poor Timber - no snow fun today.

    Funny what a difference a few miles can make. I think Edinburgh had it forecast so maybe it just went down the middle of the country and failed to deliver to the edges!

    Tilly would like that - she is sad as old mr grumples won't come out. Heading off to golf course - am sure he will spring into life there!

    Yep! I'm sick of it! Managed to get to the horses this morning but it was a bit dicey! Set off to do my first walk as it is mainly all main road so thought I'd be fine and had to abandon my van and walk home! Cancelled all my walks now on my busiest day of the week :(
    I wish I had just not set off but I thought the main roads wouldn't be too bad. Hoping I can get it back for walks tomorrow but we'll have to see as it's up hill home and I'm not sure if the roads will clear! Also can't really be affording to lose this much money at the moment either :(

    Oh no what part of the country are you in it’s just wet and grey here. Grim. I like snow but it is such a pain.

    I can confirm that we have snow but its supposed to turn to rain. Very little snow compared to everyone else!

    Golf courses are open to golfers in Scotland, why is yours closed.

    Not a sign of snow here nor frost just windy and miserable as is normal for here.

    North Leeds/West Yorkshire! It's still coming down fast and is getting really deep! Roads are chaos. Now I drive for work and have the horses I just find it a big inconvenience. It is pretty but brings everything to a halt!

    I just hope I can get it home! It's still coming down fast and isn't due to get above freezing until Saturday so I think the snow will hang around!

    Haha he did have a good spring about in it

    Not Covid related- it has been closed to golfers because of the icy weather, and when there is no golfing they allow walkers to go round.

    We are very lucky in that our golf course has a wooded public path running alongside it. It is very pretty! So we can walk on the path at all times and there is no fence at all between the path and course - we can cross the course whilst golf is on and there are signs saying how to do this safely without getting a golf ball to the ear.


    So it is sort of 'open' all the time but obvs you cant just go strolling all over it when it is in play.


    Since this lockdown, i think the weather has made it totally unplayable. It must be waterlogged as in the cold and icy weather it was just thick ice covering the grass. All over.

    And in snow of course, the public have access.



    The hottest thing on that course today was tilly's recall!! She was on fire today - from all kinds of distances. Was totally amazing, a whistle pip and she came flying back soooooo fast.

    If only she didnt have a sense of smell, she would really have a brilliant recall. Was totes awesome today!


    And murphs livened up too. Was great:)


    Eta - sorry @JoanneF i didnt see your reply to blitz when i wrote this
