Never thought we'd get any - it hardly ever snows in Northern Ireland - but we got loads today. One centimetre deep when I woke up and about an inch falls as I go to bed. So pretty and sparkly. A nightmare for the roads as it ices over but still. If you don't have to drive in it it's great!

It doesn't look it but all the photos were taken at 9am this morning. It's a lot brighter at this hour when it's not snowing!

Really? We got loads here! At least 3-4 inches fell overnight and it's still going.

Yep... freezing cold just now but the sun has been shining for 3 days solid now. Wind chill is down to about -6C in places. Roads up north are closed with the snow in the ski areas but here - nothing!

No fair! We had a bit yesterday (I mean 10 minutes worth) and it didn't settle. Lovely pictures though!

Daft, that first picture is lovely!

I'm so jealous! I've only ever seen real snow once.

This was funny - this is Bosun, my 16 year old blind, deaf and arthritic Shih Tzu. All he did was walk around in 4" deep snow! At one stage he had snow entirely covering his ear as he misjudged the step which leads to the garden. Normally he just about sees it but today he totally missed the edge and dipped the side of his head in the snow.

Thank Giplet and daft. He's a nutter despite his disablities. He must have hit his head badly so many times by running at top speed into all the furniture; I'm surprised he's not seriously brain damaged or got any lumps on his head from it all! He needs a haircut too. ;D

Here we go! Attempted to go skiing today but there were no skis left! So here's a lovely picture of Glencoe I took to compensate! I have no idea what the hill is called but it is pretty!

If you like snow, you guys should visit Manitoba lol. We had 38 cm of snow the other day! My husband took our Beagle out to go to the bathroom and our dog was walking on a snowdrift. My husband looks away and looks back and all he could see was leash. The poor little guy had sunk under the snow and my husband had to rescue him.

Same with my dogs. They'll run into a deep drift then realize their mistake and try to hop out but seem to swim in place. It's adorable! We've been getting about 3in at least daily. I thought the snow would start melting by now..not even more coming!

Send the snow my way. We are so dry here. Have not seen rain for 140 days. We are in a drought.
