Gallery: The weather could be worse...

WE think we've had bad weather in Suffolk - but take a look at these pictures from a different kind of winter white-out!

WE think we've had bad weather in Suffolk - but take a look at these pictures from a different kind of winter white-out!

Snow from recent falls has reached a depth of six to eight inches here - but what about six to eight feet and more?

This gallery of weather horror shows that whilst we've had a bad run of cold, frost and snow it's nothing near as bad as they suffer in some of the west and mid-west states of the USA.

I'm grateful to reader Mike Shout, of Trimley St Mary, for sending me this compilation. Good shout, Mike!

As ever, send us any of your pictures - if you have anything like the enclosed pictures, our photographers will be round like a shot!
