Finally more than a light dusting in Bedford. Had about 5-6 inches in last 2 hours. It's our first snow as last weeks half inch doesn't count.

Same in Duckville, deep enough to make snowmen etc now.
Or in our case, a snow "Bond Villain" with snow eye-patch and a rabbit to stroke,sitting on a revolving chair (my old pc desk chair which is outside)

Edit: proof

****ing snow. About 6 inches of snow in an hour and the wife had me out brushing snow from the satellite dish so she could watch Strictly Come Dancing sad.gif

I suggest you get your head together with TT and your collective problems would be sorted. (See below)

I have been sweating out a cold and, last night, went to clean my teeth, shave and have a bath before going to bed.
Unfortunately, as soon as I switched on the sink tap, the water ran into the bath rather than down the drain ... the outlet junction was frozen. sad.gif

Fortunately, I've thawed the junction out this morning and am now about to have a shower and so, hopefully, stop being smelly.

Proper snow in London, falling pretty quickly on Saturday and settling.

And don't we all know about it! A few planes get stuck at Heathrow and the world has come to a halt (according to our wonderful media). dry.gif

The coldest place last night, according to Sky, was Chesham, Bucks.(-20)
Our site engineer lives there.
He was first in today, and he had to get to Duckville, 15 miles away or so.

Lowest recorded temperature in the country last night was just up the road in Crosby at -17.6C. Considering that where I live is more rural, was probably a degree or two below that here! ohmy.gif

It's even been snowing in Australia, as this article shows, which must be rather strange for December.

Miriam Chimpney-Waters has been at Heathrow for over 11 hours, and despite being stupid enough to think that her flight would be flying out as scheduled, is angry that she is suffering an inconvenience.

Its an outrage, she blasted. This has been an awful year for the middle classes, a real annus horribilis.

Whats even more frustrating is that I cant blame Gordon Brown! laugh.gif

This RNLI video shows the Humber beginning to freeze earlier this week.

First time since 1963 according to the Humber Harbour Master.

I bought my wife the Airfix kit of that (AND all the paints) for Christmas last year. You should have seen her face when she unwrapped it!

John needs to introduce us to her sometime. ohmy.gif

Is Paul Hames still the harbourmaster or has he retired?
