PEOPLE in Felixstowe woke to a white world - but nowhere near as much snow as the Ipswich area.
Most of the resort had a covering of one to two centimetres while the main seafront area was virtually untouched.
Even so, most schools had to close - including both high schools - because teachers living out of town could not get to work.
Only Trimley St Mary Primary, Trimley St Martin Primary, Colneis Junior, Fairfield Infants, Langer Primary and Kingsfleet Primary were open for the last day of term.
Main roads in the town appeared to have been gritted and were running smoothly, but side roads were slippery with snow and slush.
Felixstowe port was closed last night because of the gale-force winds and snow effecting operations, but by this morning was open again and the backlog was cleared.
