After mammoth efforts from locals and Highways, it seems that the A roads and bus routes near by are now passable, though care may need to taken.
However it is still dropping well below freezing at night and forecast to remain cold at least to the weekend. Not all side roads are passable, so do leave comments if you have any updates or if there is more drifting.
Wednesday 10am – snowing again. 3pm - but roads are OK.
