    Drove my car out of my street an hour ago and couldn't get up the hill, car is now stuck by the side of the road, wheels kept spinning. Maybe if I had parked behind our house I may have had a chance of getting on the main road but I doubt it, theres no way to prepare for this stuff!

    I've got snow but I wouldn't say I was snowed in and luckily I don't have to drive anywhere today as I work from home anyway.

    I've had to defrost the the lid of my wheelie bin this morning as it was frozen solid but so far that's all ~ and I'm quite happy for it to stay like that.

    Hope you get your car out soon.

    It's been such a cold winter already, and it's not even Christmas, yet!

    We're not snowed in here in central London, but it's on the nippy side.

    No sign of snow here (Leeds). There was a tiny bit yesterday but it was mainly rain and today is bright blue skies!

    I am not snowed in here in Northern Ireland, but driving conditions are not good. Most people are staying indoors. Even the local taxi firms are putting their taxis off the road. I am heading out for dinner in an hour, not sure I am wise heading out. But wont be a late one incase car gets stuck somewhere.

    I'm sitting in my study in central London, and listening to the odd brave soul crunching along outside. It's freezing hard, and there's snow all over the roads. We don't live on a main thoroughfare, but it's not a dead end or lane either, and there's snow everywhere!

    Been snowed in is very unusual here on the Isle of Man, as we don't normally see much of the white stuff on the island, but we must have had a good 5 inches here.  Looks very pretty, but a real bug*er to drive in.

    Still being all day gave me a good chance to stay in to finish and post two new Hubs.... … rens-Story … -next-year

    ... and if I get stuck in tomorrow (which looks highly likely at the moment) might even get another finished..
