We've had lots today, with forecast of lots more to come. Anyone got any good pics?
This is our kids playhouse down the garden

Also got to try my XTrail for the first time, in 4x4 mode, in anger - very pleased too.

Blimey I'm shivering just looking at these!

But at least you get proper snow. Round here it's white for about 10 seconds, then mud, wee and dog poo coloured for about the next 5 days. Hardly terribly inspiring :(

Certainly cold here, but no snow. Yet.

Great pictures guys Posted Image ,no snow up here in the mountains yet,(it will come)but its below freezing with heavy frost in the mornings,very icy roads leading to the village can be dangerous,but the gritting trucks went past a couple of hours ago,so it should be ok for the morning. :)

Being right on the coast it's not to bad here, maybe an inch or so but I'm at the bottom of a Cul-De-Sac with a fairly steep incline to get out, should be fun watching the neighbours try and get out once it ices over.

I'm depressed already, I hate the cold. I don't even want to get out of bed in weather like this. Still only six months to go till it warms up again :(

It's trying a bit now, I'm going to turn the heating up full blast, put my shorts on and play a few of my Beach Bar cd's and see if that cheers me up a bit B)
