Snow Brings Disruption to Yorkshire

Saltaire Station Snow

This train is arriving at Saltaire rail station on its journey to Skipton, this morning commuters awoke to discover a heavy snowfall.

Many roads are very difficult and many bus routes were not operating. Many schools in Leeds and Bradford were shut for the day so lots of children were having fun in the snow. This last couple of weeks snow is the heaviest here in Yorkshire for quite a few years.

  1. OK if you don't have to travel - our neighbour's son who has a 4x4 did essential shopping for all who needed it and then we had a party in the afternoon.

  2. I've been watching this on Sky News today. Nice shot of the train, I think I will post a similar photo on my blog a bit later.

  3. We have seen the winter trouble in England on the Norwegian Tv News.
    (It is cold in Stavanger, but even worse several other places, with temperatures down to -43C !! )
    Keep warm! :-)
