No snow here in the most southeasterly corner of Britain either. Mind you that's not surprising - we got away with a light dusting during the cold snap at the beginning of this year, whereas 20 miles away in Canterbury it was a lot worse. The Isle of Thanet has its advantages!
Leysdown's on the Isle of Sheppey - Thanet's a bit further along the coast! I keep meaning to go to Sheppey and have a look around; have been past it plenty of times on the train but never actually visited.
Sorry, my mistake! It was a very long time ago. I must have been 4 or 5 at the time. My grandparents lived in Westgate and we had many holidays in the area so that we could visit them. When I was older we stayed near Reculver quite a few times, but I've never been back as an adult.
Sunny Sussex is chilly but bright right now. I had moth holes in my last years woolly gloves too. I've been out and invested in some of those trendy fingerless mitts that go right up your forearms. My kids are desparate for it to snow, whilst I'm happy if it never comes this far south!
Oh Wriggly - where in Essex are you? Me and Susana are in Essex too.
I am loving another weekend UK hubbers thread - getting together quite a club aren't we.
As for the weather report from Frinton-on-sea - we had a really impressive frost, and just had 10 minutes of the most pathetic snow shower.
I am torn in two about the snow - lots of snow = no work = less money, but.....two happy children and continuous rounds of snow fights followed by warm bath, then popcorn, hot chocolate and a film, which is pretty much my favourite way to spend a winter's day.
Hahahahaha! Very good. Better build one than be one. I just don't like the cold very much, I rather look at the snow through the window. That's why it should snow this weekend rather than during the week, so I don't actualy have to go out. Oh, well, let's go build a snowman! Hello? Snow, anyone? Up there? Hello?!
We've had three feet of snow here, car is stuck on the drive and impossible to see more than two feet ahead. Trees down, power out and a mixture of hail, hurricane, blizzard threatening to take out the West Wing of Ewbie Towers.
That's what I'm telling the boss on Monday when I don't come in.
Because I live in a town that is out of the way (frinton - it was on the Subway ad, and a kooky documentary this year).. anyway, I used to get away with it all the time- slightest bit of snow and I would need days off because there is only one road in and it gets blocked easily. Ahhhh the benefits of living in a town trapped in the 1930s.
To be honest I cannot remember who, it was one of those Dave shows, get a comic to preform in their home town and film it kinda things. I have not always recognized them all but I do think who ever it was they took the mick and of course now live somewhere with more then one road!
Anyone from Ipswich is in no position to jest - I worked there for years and my husband works there now. Most stories from Ipswich folk begin with 'my brothers cousin, who's my Dad, and my grand-daughters Uncle....' so so scary. And they say 'comp-poo-ter' - 'enuf said
Yep the snow has reached us here in East Yorkshire and I fell on my arse twice whilst going to the shops, had to wrap up though cos I've got a huge cough and cold and my son threw a snowball at the back of my head and the snow went all the way down the back of my neck!!
I can tell I'm getting older as I'm hating the snow slightly....Noooo, I'm turning into a Victor Meldrew of east yorkshire!!!!!!
I suspect we might get even more then last year, and I have thought that since last April with that Iceland volcano going up, is likely to have major effects on the weather and if the summer is anything to go by.... hope you got warm gear
Stocking up? We have done similar for awhile now (since we saw the first predictions of snow at the start of the week). We have a nice bean stew on in the slow cooker from yesterday and will add a few bits to it today to change it slightly. I actually look forward to this time of the year just because I can get the slow cooker out and have a week of meals with very little effort beyond the initial peroration of the beans (we get them raw and they need like a day soaking and cooking before they can be cooked to eat because of the chances for food poisoning, canned beans would be easier but would cost a lot more)
Ahhh now is time to buy my summer gear I got some lovely warm stuff that right now would be very expensive over the summer as it was exceptionally cheep, cleaver ain't i?
Oh and I am really hoping for snow, I got these things last spring that are like tire chains for shoes (can't think of what they are called atm). I have not got to try them out yet and I am really excited to see if they take the slip out of ice
Well with the usual completely over the top response this country always has to a bit of snow, the police are telling us all to stay home!
But if you get the chance Kirsten, you test out your shoe things - there will be snowmen to be built and snowballs to throw. My avatar picture is of a snowman I took a picture of in the fields last winter!
Still no signs here (on the coast, west of Brighton). I was in Horsham earlier, and that was still free of the white stuff, but I did notice some iron-grey clouds on the horizon. Maybe tomorrow? My kids are convinced that their schools will be closed if it snows. They go to local schools on flat, wide, busyish roads, but they were closed last Winter when it snowed. Something to do with staff coming in from North of the Downs apparently.

Calling all English hubbers, do you write in English English or US English? I find myself more and more writing for the market - so especially on Amazon hubs changing the spelling of colour to color etc. Anyone...
