Isn't everything in the Daily Mail true ?????????


Morning  It isn't snowing yet so we are venturing to Sainsburys at 7am and will hopefully be back home before it starts.

I hope everyone who has to travel today has a safe journey and that everyone keeps warm

Hello to our new Forkers

Good morning all  We've had a couple more inches overnight but the sky looks full of it!  I'm working at home today.  By the way, don't want to mislead anyone - I'm not a teacher, I work for a social work team! If you think schools get Ofsted'ed, you should see what Ofsted does to us !!!

I didn't realise that, Dove, I bet that is some inspection. We have QAA, they do the auditing for all the academic stuff and systems at the uni, a nightmare when they come, so much paper work required.

Road fine here, but I have to come over the hills from Yorkshire, it can be a bit hairy when it snows. Boss thought it would be a good idea to do my 'interim' appraisal 2 -3 pm. Grrrr.

Morning forkers,

We had some flakes of snow just before bedtime, and I was expecting to wake up to significant snow.

But only about an inch has fallen overnight. The previous forecast of '4 hours of heavy snow' for this morning, seems to have been downgraded to a dry morning, with light snow this afternoon.

So won't be building any snowmen today.

Pennine Petal
Morning all BTW, Forecast now looks lighter than anticipated. Media hype, making it sound as though it was going to be bad everywhere.

Reporting from my bed

Been down to the bottom of the garden- it is snowing- airport closed - forecast on now- still saying the same- we are still going to die and there may be more on Sunday

Morning, I think. Still rather dark.

About a couple of ins. of show, still falling lightly and on the wet side. Was lying in bed contemplating getting up when the most awful noise like thunder, only scrapier, was right overhead. I sent OH who was dressed to investigate. He announced, A tree's fallen down. Where? said I. Outside, came the reply. Whereupon the noise came again. Got up to find out something sensible and found a large branch from one of next door's tall conifers has fallen on to the roof right above my bed and was sliding down hence the scrapey noise. Waiting for light to see if any damage.

Pennine Petal
Goodness Flo, good job it wasn't any bigger, it might have fallen on you.

Geoff, I think you are going to get it worse than us,good luck. Ate the crooks all tucked up?

Oh not nice Flo. One of the slates from above our bedroom slid down one yr, so I know about the noise!!

We've only had a dusting of snow. Daughter has made it safely from SLancs to nearer central Manchester. All being well she'll be leaving after the school runs so getting home, & so to bed, shouldnt be too bad. J.


The chickens are scratching in the pen- not sure about the crooks:

Flo- this is rather worrying

Morning all  Flo - that's not good. Hope there's not too much damage. It's snowing here as well- Started last night so think I'll get myself off to the shops before it gets any worse. Hubbie just called to say the main roads are fine.

Just the small matter of getting the car off the drive - it's on an incline. I am a wimp when it comes to driving in the snow. There's also a roundabout at the top of road and when it gets bad , not even taxi's venture up here.

If I haven't logged on by dinner-time will someone send a snow plough ?

Take care out and about, everyone.

Oh and hello Lyn and Flowerbird.


Yes, Glyn, that's what I thought, didn't seem to occur to OH, though!!

Chickens scratching here too, Geoff. No crooks either, I think we have neighbourhood watch to thank for that 

Maisie, westie, is sitting on a chair looking out the window and wuffing at the snow coming down, not sure what she thinks it is.

~ ~ ~ (Flo waves) to Lyn and Flowerbird.

And Dove, I'm sure Ofsted's just as nasty whichever line of work one's in, hope you had a consolation cake or two afterwards.  



Miss Becks

Morning lovelies!

Well for once, the weather report was right!! It is blizzard like here! Today I really DON'T fancy walking to nursery. There is definately enough to make a snowman.

Roads look really dodgy as well. Jean, you are not a wimp for not wanting to drive in snow. I'm the same. It's nerve-wracking.

Hope you all stay safe.xx
