    We've got loads too (in Manchester). I can't actually see where the road is because the snow is up and over the pavement. And it's STILL snowing. I just hope OH can get home from work. They might send everyone home soon.

    :rofl: Sorry. I know that it isn't normal for you guys to get that type of snow, so its a massive deal. While I was clicking through the pictures I kept thinking how it doesn't really look like alot of snow at all! :haha: We get TONS here, but that's normal for our climate.

    I have various pictures of what our winters look like, here's a few:

    Wow Tyff, that's awesome! :thumbup:

    Snow is scary though isn't it? I don't like it really, only once in a while so I can build a snowman, and that's only if I have no where to go :wacko: I always seem to fall on my bum! :haha:

    Becky, and all others affected badly by the snow, Big hugs :hugs: Stay safe everyone!
    We still haven't really had any! x

    Thanks everyone! Those pictures were after a storm, so it really 'blanketed' everything. Typically we don't get like 6-7 feet of snow in one go. :hugs:

    It sure is pretty when you don't have to go out/drive in it! :haha:

    I think that the way areas deal with snowfall has a lot to do with it. Here they are quick to clear the roads (not saying they always stay on top of it but the main roads and what not do get cleared as quickly as possible). When I was in Dallas they didn't even have the budget for snow removal/salt trucks etc. so the few times they got an ice storm/snow storm while I was there everything shut down
