I'm in the North East and although we had some snow in the wind earlier today, no proper snow yet but through last night and this morning it was very windy which caused a few problems for commuters this morning.

From the Hebrides News report you have had very strong winds across the islands, I hope the force of the wind is lessening now, as it seems to be moving further south.  I hope your power cuts get fixed soon so that you can at least keep warm even if it does snow and blow!

Yeah, the wind has gone down a lot, hopefully it'll stay at bay for a while yet. It's at times like this that I'm glad we don't have many big trees here, they're all skinny wee things so just bend a bit with the wind. The worst I've heard is a neighbour having his solar panels ripped from the roof and someone had a window or two blown in last night, so nothing too major.

The general rule here is 70mph+ is time to stay indoors and 90mph+ is when I get worried of what the morning will bring.

The North East can be pretty hard going from what I hear, I have family in the East of the Borders and they always seem to have a tough time with pipes freezing/bursting and it being difficult getting around with the snow so deep. I don't think I'd ever be prepared for that kind of living!

I hope places are prepared to grit roads on time, there's a town near me that made a silly mistake earlier in the year where people watched as the gritter lorry was closely followed by the road sweep

We had a light 'icing sugar sprinkle' of snow of Friday but nothing since *looks round for some wood to touch*

We had more snow this year, the last time we had snow that bad was back in 2010. It wouldn't be such a problem if the roads was gritted more often.
