Monday 25th March WEATHER REPORT

Conditions are not good at the moment! Parwich is cut off from the rest of the world for the time being.

It has stopped snowing but there is no sign of a thaw yet and because of the wind there is a lot of drifting; this means even some of the local main roads get blocked from time to time. If you are planning to come here today or even on Friday do check with us first, and also for up to the minute reports on our village blog parwich.org.

Two other excellent but inevitably less immediately local weather and traffic conditions sites to consult are for local weather conditions for BBC reports for Ashbourne and Local road conditions for BBC local Travel News

If you get here okay, your final problem may be the last slope up to our house. 4x4s are managing fine but probably not much else, and our drive and yard are covered with snow so it would be best to park below, well before the snow-covered grassy triangle with the Road Narrows sign.

  1. Tuesday 10am Our little road was cleared yesterday thanks to wonderful neighbours but how far one can venture further we haven’t heard yet.

    Yesterday evening 4x4s were getting in to Ashbourne and back but normal vehicles were not finding it so easy and several had to be dug out or towed to safety.

  2. Wednesday 10.30am The roads are open, if not perfect and we are back in touch with the outside world. The weather today is changeable, heavy flurries of snow followed by bright sunshine… What a tease!

  3. Sunday 31/3/13 Conditions are steadily improving. There is still snow lying but the roads are okay and the temperature is increasing, marginally, with intermittent bright sunshine!
