We had about 5 minutes of moderate snow, then back to cold and wet. Not going to go to work on the motorbike tomorrow.

Is that another pseudonym for one of your spawn?

No, it's the bin I burn stuff in.

About half a quarter inch at most. It is still coming down. Left the AWD on the road, and the 2WD 6 feet beneath road level, again.

You know if it's really windy if that's someone else's trampoline.

No snow but VERY windy last night!

My little boy really wants it to snow, he's never played in it.

We haven't had any snow sine January 2013 when we had a massive load of it (I was in Singapore for the full two weeks though). We had about an inch of snow last night, enough for the kids to play in, as they were desperate for a bit of snow. Also enough to cause me difficulties getting out of the village due to the lack of grit and the steepness.

Reasonably clear over the mountain this morning but conditions did worsen as I got closer to Douglas, then out of nowhere there was a wide strip of compacted icy snow right across the road on a bend, fortunately I wasn't going fast, and had already slowed down as my lights had picked out the whiteness on the road (it must have been a really bizarre effect of the wind as the road was clear of snow beforehand, it was all accumulated at the sides) - nonetheless the car did a proper sideways shunt and impressive looking icons appeared on the display which I think mean 'all my clever computer shit is saving your arse right now, fucker', and I guess the quattro probably helped too.

I got through OK but did think to myself, 'Someone is going to come properly unstuck on that'. True enough by the time I got to work and checked the IOM Police Twitter feed they had reported a car going off the road on that very bend. (No one hurt by all accounts.)

Crikey. That is a bit of a scare.

I did use ICE mode to get out of the drive this morning, and it went ok. I turned it off at the end of the road, as it was clear.

Last week, as I sat shirtless in the sun, eating barbecued meat I read of an incoming Arctic blast. I chuckled.

Well, now as I sit bundled on the sofa with the heating on, I am no longer chuckling

T'is God's own city. As in wrath of God as we've just had an almighty hail storm.
