How Much Snow Do You Have?

10cm so far here in Cognac, France but another 10-15cm expected today/tomorrow

Some locals got slightly freaked by the excessive snow warnings here - there was actually some panic buying in the local supermarkets the other day - pathetic. :blink:

We're all right though as the local farmers get free diesel if they clear the roads with their snow ploughs.

The French just shrug and get on with it. Everyone here has to drive to work due to the absolute lack of public transport (buses) and the trains seem to be running without any problems.

Plus I've got a 7-tonne JCB parked in the garden if it gets really bad :P:P

Should be a laugh next week as I've got to come back to Blighty for a few days to visit family... :blink:

Up to my kneecaps in Sheffield.

The trip to my local supermarket yesterday was very tricky. Usually it's a 10 minute walk but just getting off the estate was a problem. The side roads are impassable and are no clearer than the pavements, so it was a case of wading through knee deep snow until I reached the main road (almost as impassable as the side roads and empty of traffic). A little way after that I reached the dual carriageway. I could safely walk on that as traffic was so light.

Once at the supermarket I could then enjoy their authentic recreation of the fall of Saigon.

It's been snowing pretty much all night and yet there is only about 1-2 inches on the ground!

Just got to try and drive home from work in a few minutes, should be fun!

Only a few inches, but more than yesterday. Just been out with a broom to clear a space for feeding poor little birdies. :(

S*dding lurking cat isn't helping. Great fat black thing - why isn't it indoors curled up somewhere warm? If anyone knows how to keep evil lurking cats out of the garden please let me know.

If you want to keep cats out of the garden you could try this. An ultrasonic cat scarer. Linky

0 inches in Oxford.

Clearly the cat didn't get that fat by being stupid.
