Couldn't help but notice how the SN snowfall coverage increases relative to it's impending approach to the South-East!



Blocked Aberdeenshire roads and a Northumbrian death hardly merited a mention.



'National' TV, or what?

Ah yes...was it last year when it snowed in London and that meant the 'whole country' was at a standstill?



And again, this year all I can say at the moment is, "what snow"? Apart from a few very brief snatches of sleet, it's been blue skies and sunshine today. Yet I keep being told the East Midlands is going to be hit hard. I've been waiting two days now. Oh well, maybe tomorrow? (:rolleyes: and expects to be snowed in tomorrow morning now...)

England.... Stabilised by the Gulf Stream, you get a far better deal than any other countries on the same lattitude. Just take Denmark, for example. It has been snowing here for over a week, and well below zero, but because the society functions the roads and paths (foot AND cycle) are instantly and continuously cleared. Simple. No dramas. No hyperbole. I called the train company last week during the worst of the snow to check the state of the trains from Jutland to Copenhagen, and the voice on the other end apologised that ONE train had indeed been delayed that day, by 15 minutes!!! 15 MINUTES!!!!!



You NEED those Olympics, badly!!!!

Given the majority of the county lives in the south-east of course that will happen.
