How much snow do you have ?

Just outside Ringwood, Hampshire we have about 5 inches, no problem for my Landrover Defender. How much have you got ?

About 2" in Jersey. No problem for my front wheel drive hatchback. Stops a darn site quicker as well being lighter than most 4x4's.

RIBase
Snow drifts up to 2ft up here, the wind has been bitterly strong past couple of days, horizontal blizzards. Was up in the fells yesterday, some drifts a good metre deep. General coverage of about 6'' at our level though.

Sedbergh, Cumbria. (We typically get much less than most 'cos we're in the rainshadow (snowshadow) of the fells around.)

At Port Lympne zoo in Kent we have over 3 feet of it,,,, struggled to get in and feed animals today but hard core of keepers managed it. luckily we have landys but even those were getting stuck.I had the pleasure of lifting an icicle covered monkey into her nice warm shed! My ribs ok though all tucked up with the lions(almost!)

We had about a foot of snow this morning. My new Jeep got commandeered by a higher authority, so I've been tootling around in the Multipla with snow chains again.

Excellent toboganning today!
