Down here on the coast there was not enough of the white stuff to whet your whistle :frown: but good to hear that the exy likes to play in the snow.

Maybe in 20 years we will get enough to go out and play :grin:

Which bit of the coast you on Stephen? Over in the Bognor area it was a couple of inches, but the Xtrail was fine in that. Went up to Surrey today for my others halfs birthday and it was a lot worse up there at least 6 inches even more in some places, even some of the main roads were only partly clear. Saw a escort estate stuck spinning its front wheels and a mini which had not realized where the kerb met the road and was sitting half on, half off where it should of been.

Jamie,

On the coast at Eastbourne in the beautiful sunshine again :lol: We had some inches of snow but it just melted away. Went into town yesterday and no snow on streets or on any cars that I saw. Still driving the exy in 2wd but heard that the hill down to Cuckmere valley/ Seaford, was closed the other day for a few hours. Maybe we will get some more of the white stuff later this week.

This week has been thoroughly enjoyable driving my 72 mile round trip from South Derbyshire to work in Coventry. I've had the "Exy" is Auto for the week and its been fantastic driving through singletrack country lanes with 4 inch snow and a nice few icy patches thrown in for fun.

I've even been looking out for "virgin territory" where no-one has currently driven and the Exy has performed flawlessly! What a great vehicle! :thumbs: :thumbs:

I'm just gutted that its stopped snowing, I do hope that there's plenty more of the white stuff on the way.

Went over to see my brother today in Peacehaven and there was still some snow up on the hills near Woodingdean. He said he had come back through Eastbourne the day before and up on the hill near Beachy Head there was still some snow in places. At least it couldn't have been as bad as yesterday when we went to Marwell Zoo. It was lovely and sunny here but a bit chilly, got towards Southampton and they still had a good few inches of snow on the paths. The Zoo was open but most of the animals stayed in the enclosures, I think the only ones who were happy were the snow leopards laying out on their rocks

Yeah it was pretty good. Was there for about 4 hours got some lunch and didn't really notice the cold. I forgot to mention that the penguins seemed quite at home as well, but I think they were planning to escape Madagascar style "smile and wave boys, just smile and wave!" :whistle:
