OK but surely the vehicle's passage through the air will force the snow back not forwards.

You're assuming these people are getting out of towns and running up to speed on open roads - the windrush at 20 mph ain't gonna do much snowblowing!

phew!!! what a day anyone else from Central Scotland?? Hope you all got home ok and not still stuck on the M9 or M80 M8.

never in all my years have I seen it so bad in this area Normally take the M9 to work..... not today... still took me 2 hours normally 15mins to get into work. My mini went well and the road home took all the back roads no problems.

Some pics from today and this evening out walking my dogs. not the best pics but you get the idea

quick pic of a week past Saturday just as the first snow came Thomas my nine month old GSP cross Thoams.

and now some taken in the back garden couple of days ago
