As the first true snow of winter falls across Saffron Walden, Dunmow and the rest of Uttlesford, we want to share your pictures of fun in the cold stuff.
Although fun for youngsters, the snow is also having an impact on roads right across the county.
Essex Highways and Essex Police are advising people not to drive unless it is really necessary.
If you must travel then do so with extreme caution and allow plenty of extra time for your journey.
Essex Police posted on its Facebook page: “We are experiencing a high number of calls relating to the roads and the poor conditions.
You may also want to watch:
“Remember, only call 999 in an emergency and 101 for a non-emergency.
“We are experiencing traffic disruption on a number of roads in Essex and this is causing tailbacks.
