Footie, she would have stayed in, because she probably can't get out. We have had this since Thursday, with no let up on the horizon.
Hope I don't have to go to Derby tonight.

Jane and Julia - when I lived in the Midlands I never saw/heard it but in the South now it really shocked me. We have fine powdery snow its been coming down since early hours started sticking abt 11am it is quite lovely, but looking at the news its been causing some trouble. Just seen the snow in Derby where niece is I'm sure she would have stayed indoors x

Jane, I am East Midlands also.

Footie, I have known it lighten and snow. Quite a frightening experience. Also, they have been forecasting thundersnow, during these last few days, but not happened here yet.
