Oh snow, not again!!


* A deserted and snow-bound Regent Street (A5) in Llangollen just before 8am today.

At least seven inches of snow has fallen overnight in Llangollen and continues to come down steadily.
According to the Denbighshire County Council website, both Dinas Bran and Bryn Collen schools are closed for the day (Friday) due to the overnight snow.
The county county website at http://www.denbighshire.gov.uk/LL/LifeLong.nsf/WebSIEmergencyall?OpenView is being updated by the minute with closure information.
Wrexham.com tweeted just after 7am that Arriva routes 1,3,4,7,8,10,11,12,13,14,21,26,27 were not operating until further notice.
Latest information is that 28 schools in Wrexham are closed by snow.
A/Sgt Mark Jones of North Wales Police traffic unit tweeted around an hour ago that the A5 closed was in both directions between the B4401 junction, Corwen and the B5103 junction in Llangollen, because of snow.
In the centre of Llangollen very little traffic apart from 4x4s and HGVs is travelling along the usually-busy A5.
Certain homes in Llangollen were reporting loss of satellite TV signal.
Earlier Twitter messages reported that Froncysyllte CP was closed, not just due to the snow but power issues. Garth CP was also said to be closed.
Although conditions were reported to be difficult on the A483 through Wrexham, a tweet around 7.30am said a lot less severe towards Chester; can still see the tips of grass and mud on the fields.”
