Last time I remember any substantial amount of snow was when we lived in Norfolk. I remember our village getting cut off and the RAF from Marham, which was just up the road, sent a snow-blower to clear the road, as some of their people came that way to work. Helped our village no end too. Here in Hertfordshire we hardly get any, and some years none at all. This year we got maybe half an inch at most, and even that didn't cover everywhere. Lasted barely a day then rain washed it away.Norfolk Jim said:Beginning of Feb we had a lot - in mid-Norfolk it was patchy but at least 12" (30cm) in our garden. My son had some 6 foot snow drifts in north Norfolk. Couple of years back with Beast from the East our road was blocked for 4 days!! Huge snow drifts along the roads and in region of 18" snow in the garden - took ages to go. One road into village took over a week to re-open........................If it comes from the East like both times we tend to get a good dumping and really low temps...................lowest in England in Feb was only 10 miles down the road at Santon Downham!!
This time though my son had my car to get his fiancée to work at East Anglian Air Ambulance - he said car was awesome..........................
