Over 2500 homes have been affected by severe wintry weather during the past few days, with flights disrupted at both Belfast airports and several sporting fixtures postponed. The worst affected areas seem to be in Fermanagh and Tyrone, up to a foot of snow has fallen.

BBC News - Weather leaves 150 Northern Ireland homes without electricity

Hope everyone is OK.
I'm gutted we have no snow lying up here in Derry. I bought a back-wheel drive over a year ago and still haven't been able to "test" it in the snow! :(

Rear wheel drives are rubbish in the snow. Someone told me if i had half a ton o sand in the boot it would help give grip!

Seriously though, ever take a rear wheel drive bally dancing in the snow?:) A mean in a car park or summit like!
Not as much fun as tying a fish box (with steel 'boots' attached to the bottom) to the back a a car and going around in circle in a car park.

Just make sure curbs are not possible to hit with the fish box (back is still fecked after all these years)!

Was it nationalist snow or unionist snow?

Twas peacful snow as it was mostly white.

Although it did land mostly in Unionist areas which is, quite frankly, a disgrace!
