Its snowing here in Eastbourne!

The flakes are getting bigger and heavier by the minute!..... and its laying, doesn't often happen here as we are protected by the south downs and are right by the sea!
Josh and Luke have gone out to walk my mums dog in the snow.

Is it snowing where you are? :)

Coool. I never knew you were from Eastbourne! I am too, but I'm in Gloucester at the mo for uni. We don't have anything yet. I think it snowed a bit last night, but it's all gone now though :(. Maybe later we'll get some :).

We have had our first bit of snow today, woke up this morning and it was covered. It looks nice but not for long when people have drove/walked in it all. lol x

No snow here at the moment. I really hope if it does snow its gone by the 17th of December because I'm looking after some rabbits and I'm so excited and I don't want the snow to stop me :))

You can all keep the snow thank you. Hate the stuff. Fine if you have no job to go to or no other reason to leave the house, not if you have an outside life to lead.

It's really heavy here! I think we're nearing 3-4 inches now, and its soft and fluffy and gorgeous. I want more though!

We have snow here in south wales too, it started yesterday at around 12.45pm and then i had to come home early from work at 02.50pm as it was getting worse. Its still here now but we've not had any more snow showers, but i here that this weather/cold is lasting for 10 days! It is just a covering for us but some areas are worse than others, as just 7miles away from me in Caerphilly i heard is really thick! :)

So how do you get to work and get any kids you may have to school?

How do you visit any elderly/sick relatives you may have who depend on you, especially as they can't get out as it is too dangerous?

And any tips as to how to unfreeze outside yard taps and sugarbeet, try and stop 30 horses going nuts from being kept in cos if they go out they could all break their legs slipping in the stuff, yet still keep an arthritic horse moving, and actually getting up to the yard in the first place so you can muck out three times a day, would be fab, thanks.

Having horses sucks in winter :(:)) At least I don't get snow where I live in Spain :p, just wet and cold. I think my horse would go mental if he couldn't get out! rolleyes Bad times!
Have no tips for you though sorry. Been a long time since I had horses in England and even then I was too young to know :))

A dusting of snow overnight last night, it's forecast for tomorrow morning, but absolutely no sign whatsoever of it yet. The ground is clear. I feel I'm missing out!

Our girl is pretty calm about it but some of the others are awful, when we could finally turn out again one of the mares went ballistic and reared up over the girl taking her out, she's only little the girl and got pulled all over the place, then the horse slipped...argh it was horrible.

Wet is fine, horses are waterproof (ish)!

The snow also confuses my guineas as the conservatory has a clear roof, but when it snows it obviously makes it rather dark in there, so they think it's nighttime all day and sleep all the time, then want feeding at silly hours!
