I'm pissed off - we're the only place in the country that hasn't had any snow over the last few weeks (apart from a paltry 1/2 cm last night). Got the sledges ready and .... bogging nothing.

None in Nottingham, and not a sign of any snow all the way back down to London so you are not alone. What snow there was didn't last long.

In London it's just a dismal, slightly wet, normal winter day.

None in Stoke either, after the weather forecast promised heavy snow last night. It just rained a lot.

That's really worrying - I hope you don't live near the river.

Lots of snow in Norway and very cold so next year I'm going away to some place warmer - any suggestions?

I love that line Boy Hoy!

We've had loads here in Edinburgh. All the locals (I'm not one, I hasten to add) say that they haven't seen snow like it for years. We live in a road that the council don't grit, and our little car park is still like an ice rink. I really was walking like Tina Turner just to get up the path.

My 73 year-old parents are up visiting from down saarf, and we took them up Calton Hill in Edinburgh city centre....... the ice was so severe I'm sure they think I was trying to bump them off!!!!

It went all Chritmassy here last night. It had all gone again by this morning :roll: That's all we've had. Watch the bugger come down the minute we go back to work :?
