Anyone escape the overnight snow?

I just measured 8cm on the patio this morning, If I can dig my car out later this morning Im going to try and get hold of a thermometer to nail to the fence for the next few weeks

I used to have a mini wireless weather station but now, what's the point ? You can get the exact temperature for your on you smartphone.

There's patches of snow all over East Anglia but the important question is, who on here lives the closest to Cheltenham?

I already said me. Lol, less then an hour, like 25 miles away. Little snow so far, but blizzards on the way.

There is one forum user on here I know of whose house overlooks the course

I can barely see 25ft out the window for thick falling flakes - the dog at least loves it!

If Cheltenham is postponed, I think there could be value in the likes of Douvan, Faugheen and Yorkhill. Most horses are going to be absolutely prepped for Cheltenham week (especially Nichols and Hendersons horses) and their feeding plans could be seriously affected.

There current odds, if available if postponed by a couple of weeks I think will show a profit, if you bet them as dutch for their individual races.

An hour is a fair way - I thought somebody (as Dallas mentioned) might be closer. Let's hope we get a report from that forum member, or better still, photographs of how deep the snow is. :lol:

If it stays cold, you just never know with the amount of snow they have forecast.

After a lot of showers yesterday we currently have zero snow, rising to zero by the end of the day. Jealous!

we had a scattering that was visible at 6am, by 10 it had gone thanks to sunshine. Now it's just started snowing with small flakes.

I'm in Derbyshire.
