There were a  few cars around the latchford stockton heath area that have snow on them and a small amount on some of the verges and gardens in the area this morning. nothing whre i live so it must have been justv that side of teh canal that got it. Still the day is young and the snow has been forcast again along with 70 - 80 mph winds. On the bright side it is supposed to be nice and sunny thursday.

Saw the sleet for 5 mintues last night when I was driving towards bridge foot at 5pm.  It sudenly came and was going horizontally but like you say Shiela stopped 5 mins later.  I wanted 'real' snow not that ha ha.

 

Nothing fresh on our car this morning or during the night Evils (Stockton Heath... well almost) although the ones which had been parked up at tea time last night still had the semi frozen 5 minute sleet on them. 

 

It's raining now so not much chance of any sticking if it does happen.  70-80mph winds I DON'T want though !!

The have advised drivers of lorries, motorbikes and caravan towers to avoid the Thelwall viaduct but like you say Bill I half expected it to be closed.

 

Saying that if they do close it then the whole of Warrington will come to a standstill.

Shouldn't take our son long to get home from work across town on his pushbike though if the wind is behind him  :wink:

Took me 2 hours to get back from Birchwood to Lymm.

 

Don't understand why they closed the M6 from all the way up at the M62. That meant that nobody could go down to Woolston to use either Warburton bridge or Kingsway and Latchford bridges. So EVERYONE was funnelled onto Winwick Road and straight through the middle of town.

 

Thank God for Longshaw Street and Dallam Lane, it had already taken me nearly an hour to get from the M62 to Alban Retail Park so I hung a right there and went round the back. Just surprised that so few others took the same escape route!

 

Had to rejoin the chaos at Lythgoes Lane and spent a further 20 minutes doing the quarter of a mile or so to the Cockhedge roundabout, but after that it was a quick cut through Sainsburys car park to avoid obvious gridlock on Fennel Street, a little wiggle through the back doubles from Farrel Street to halfway along Mersey Street and as soon as I was past Bridge Foot it all got a lot easier!

Looks like we timed it just right.  Decided to go and pick our son and his bike up from his work (kind parents eh).

Left home at 4.40pm.....up Wilderspool and through bridge foot to pink eye roundabout sankey way.  Back home by 5.45 and that included a stop off for 15 mins for a chat.

 

The sudden gusts of wind were a bit scarey though and were rocking our 2 ton car on the bridge at bridge foot.

Saw a big burley chap holding onto a lamp post there as one gust caught him and a lady being blown backwards who appeared to be trying to master the Michael Jackson moonwalk. 

 

Ok so I shouldn't have laughed really  :oops:  :lol:
