More webcams to keep an eye on that snow, Staffordshire webcams now live

At the moment its snowing in Derby and has been all night, Not seen this much snow in years.
People seem to like my Derbyshire webcams page during these times as it allows you to see for yourself if its actually snowing right now rather than trusting a weatherman to tell you!

So I  have started to create a section for Staffordshire Webcams as this is the next county to the south west of Derbyshire so you can see how bad the snow is effecting them.
One of the webcams I have added to this page is provided by www.leekonline.co.uk and is extreamly good as it allows many viewing options including almost live video streaming so you can actually see the snow coming down.

Here is a screen grab of how the snow was looking this morning in Leek:

The Snow in Leek on the 1st December 2010 :

If you know of any webcams in Staffordshire that I can add to my page then please contact me via my website or post a comment to this blog post and I will add it to the page so others can enjoy it.
I'm sure there must be lots of webcams in Staffordshire but quite often they are not easy to find.
In time I will probably be creating a few other webcam pages for the other surrounding counties of Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire, Cheshire, Leicestershire, Lancashire.

I wonder how long this snow is going to stop around for. Normally when it snows the temperature is much warmer than this time so it does not get chance to settle but this stuff has settled and there is so much of it.
If you want to make the most of the snow then check out my Derby Sledging Guide.
