From a high of -8 to a low of -10C and the snow is like a powder.

-25 is the lowest I've experienced, but that was in a windless cold store.

Just started snowing again here.

What's the collective noun for a bunch of people who take all of the winter's grit for the whole street and throw it all on their own parking spaces ignoring the road altogther?

A tosspot of imbeciles?

Anyway, oddly enough our road is quite slippery ... more snow on the way. rolleyes.gif

After sneering at our railways with "the wrong kind of snow" the French Eurostar trains couldn't cope with the temperature differences outside and inside the Channel Tunnel and broke down!

Minus 14 in Oslo, minus 12 in Vienna, minus 5 in Leeds and in Rome, minus 7 in Venice, and minus 6 in Madrid. Coldest December weather in the Alps, and the earliest start to the ski season, for years.

Global warming, eh?

I think the correct phrase is climate change.



Wigan has got a good covering, unusual for around these parts we rarely see snow.

Manchester airport temporarily closed to clear runways as well. We are flying from there early Tuesday am for some winter sun. Hope theres a lot of snow clearance going on.
