There were also many who made snowmen and decorated them with whatever they could find including a Costa cup and carrots.

 The Met Office continues to have a yellow weather warning in place for Herts until 11am today for ice, as sub-zero temperatures preserving Sunday's snowfall has also created an added ice risk.

With ice patches expected to cause disruption, the Met Office warns of icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths for those taking essential journeys. Some injuries may occur from slips and falls on icy surfaces.

The WHT would like to thank its audience for sending in such lovely pictures on the first snow day of the year.
