East Central Scotland here. Yesterday and today has been a red alert from the Met Office. The 1st red alert for snow ever.

Not a single shop open, not a single bus running. Snow is nearly 2 foot deep, considerably deeper where drifts are gathering.

Not much fun. I'll take some pics shortly.

We have very little snow left here but this morning we have freezing rain and loads of black ice on roads and footpaths now.

This freezing rain is certainly weird, everything is just covered in a layer of ice.

As predicted it has started to snow now here, could have between 5 and 10 cm by tonight.

The freezing rain has caused chaos in Kent with over 150 accidents on the roads and 20 reported in I think an hour. SE Trains are not running any services right now because of ice on the 3rd rain and frozen points. Glad I dont commute any more  ;)

We're in Mere very close to where the BBC National news has been reporting on drivers on the A303 stuck in their cars overnight.

Goes against the norm, as it falls as liquid rain but it is below the point that water freezers (0c) then as soon as it hits anything it forms a layer of ice, Deadly.

Itís been quite bad here in East Lothian. We were in the red warning zone and it had been snowing pretty much constantly for the last 24 hours. Sunny now with the odd snow shower. Measured about 8 inches deep on the front drive this morning.

Satisfaction!  After clearing a further 3 inches today. :yay:

I gave up on clearing my own drive yesterday, after brushing away the umpteenth dusting and scattering a bit more rock salt.    Weíve since had another 2 or 3 inches of snow.    Driveway is now barrierred off down at the end, as anybody who tries to get here will wish they hadnít.

My own driveway is about 200 ft long which is bad enough.   The bigger problem is, beyond my own drive, lies another 400 ft of private unadopted lane, shared by me and three neighbours, of which I am the youngest by some margin.   And even after that, thereís just a single track lane up to the main road, another 500ft.   In total, anything up to 1100 feet of digging, to reach the first road that carries any real traffic. :'(

Such are the benefits of life in a rural village.  That and crap broadband speeds, of course.  :D

Just before dusk, today, more snow started to fall. It looks to be the same dry, powdery, type as on previous days . . .

The view, as seen from from the window, was just as if someone had sprinkled icing-sugar over the landscape.

Plaster boarding, rather you than me, done far too much of that over the years.

Snow has pretty much gone here in Thanet, was about 5 degrees when I drove home from work this afternoon.

ETA: I've attached a picture of one of the cars at work yesterday covered in freezing rain.
