SNOW, to some it’s a symbol of winter and fun, to others it’s a nusiance that creates traffic problems and a hazard to walk on.


Here are your opinions on the snowy weather around the county today.

Scott Cogswell told us what he had been doing about the snow, he said: “I just got home from clearing the snow from the roads in suffolk. I’ve been up since 12am until 8:30am. I’m tired!!!! : )”

Simon Oakley posted on Twitter: “Snow? It WILL bring the region to a standstill...believe me, it ALWAYS DOES. All down to #BadDriving.”

Ben Garrod didn’t have problems with traffic however, he said on Twitter: “Ipswich buses are actually earlier than usual. I wish it would snow more often.”

Diane Miles’s Tweet said: “Snowing now in Rendlesham and settling.”

Luke Littleboy wanted to hear more about the winter weather, he said: “A real blizzard? Fantastic stuff. I want some live updates at the scene!”
