Huh! We’ve got naff all snow here in Lancashire.
Depends where you are!
Red Lees Road between Nino’s and Hall Park had a couple of abandoned cars and six foot drifts.
We’re a quarter of mile away, relatively sheltered and weren’t too bad, although the neighbours lost half of their ridge tiles.

Mountain Rescue found him in a snow drift – sadly too late.JonEdwardsMember
No pics yet, but we got stranded on Kintyre for a couple of days over the weekend. Most places didn’t have much snow because the wind was too strong for it to settle, but where it did drift, it was stupid deep. The snow ploughs ended up buried and they had to bring in blowers from somewhere else.
Utter chaos, as once the power lines had gone down (in the middle of the deepest drifts) and the (2) roads were blocked, that was it.
We got fairly lucky – were able to extend our holiday cottage on the beach for a couple of days for free (thank you Landmark Trust), we had a blazing log & coal fire going most of the time. Walks on the beach collecting driftwood + Kindles for entertainment, the only real bummer was no hot food or drink from Friday morning until sunday lunchtime, and the only available food was crisps and choccy bars from the garage in Cambeltown.
Finally escaped on a ferry that had brought in generators and was returning for another load. Again, a freebie – thank you CalMac Ferries!Posted 4 years agorichmtbSubscriber
There isn’t really any snow in Glasgow to speak of. Out on Cathkin Braes there was maybe a uniform 1″ covering on the trail, however on the windward side of the hill in a few places it was blown into drifts a few feet deep.
Its amazing how so little snow can cause such deep drifts, I can understand how people got caught out in it over the weekend. Six inches of snow resulting in 15 foot drifts because of the wind. NutsPosted 4 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber

Yep, was weird in the Peak District. Some roads clear and dry, some just patchy snow/ice and others completely impassable. Sometimes within a mile or so of each other.Posted 4 years ago
The wind was insane, could barely stand in it sometimes and it had scoured the fields bare of snow in some places, dumped the snow 6ft deep in others.ScapegoatSubscriber
If you look out here you can see green fields in places, and others where there are piles of snow/drifts by the side of main roads. The wind has spent since Saturday blowing the snow off the fields into the sheltered bits. Even by yesterday lunchtime that drift we dug the snowcave into had doubled in size.Posted 4 years ago
