    If anyone gets snow where you are can you post it on here please, been years since we had any in the midlands, just need to go out and play in the truck, thanks (Clive I know you get lots of snow, but Romanias a bit too far for me).

    I'm in NE Scotland not too far from Cairngorms and some of the highest roads in the UK. When it snows I'm always trying to get the time to run up the Lecht (630m) or the A93 at Glenshee Ski Centre (over 600m) or a single track above Ben Lawers next to Tarmachan Ridge (580m). There are other places if there's a good snow, much lower down. We have miles and miles of single track here, but most of it you need permission to drive on, unless the gate is open and there is no sign! (I don't drive off the tracks on vegetation) Almost always have snow my mid-Dec. These pics were from the single track near Ben Lawers in late Nov. It melted since then, we had some on Boxing Day, but been too warm for much except on the highest peaks like Ben Macdui and Lochnagar (I mean proper, snowshoes needed kind of snow). As you probably know, we're going to get a good one next couple of days. The Lecht is showing heavy snow all day and heavy at times for the next three, so I think the white stuff is finally here to stay, fingers crossed. I love driving in it when it's not been gritted. A foot of pure snow and a few deeper drifts without grit is the best (most fun) way to really clean wheels, tyres and other bits underneath ;)

    Also I used to live in Notts. Roads around Edale and Peak District might get a lashing here next few days!

    Go North to the Peaks and you'll find some, or West into Snowdonia or Mid Wales and there'll be some there too (from tomorrow).

    It is a bit of a jaunt I must admit.

    Still, we're having a bit of fun these days and no sign of a thaw coming.

    In fact, another 30 cm of snow is forecast for next week, on top of what we've just had.

    Good pics "rusty bottoms"
    I drove that road a year or so ago past Ben lawyers,
    Wouldn't fancy the northern descent in snow, big drop on one side.
    So nice camping spots around there.

    You must live near me then.
    More snow tonight, I hear Elgin has gridlocked.
    I was in my Yaris tonight, but might unleash the Hilux. Tomorrow

    Hope for more snow tonight so I can get out skiing at weekend

    Only a dusting here near Insch
