Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Never thought this was possible, but while it's snowing heavily here, we have just had thunder and lightening!

Didn't think it was meterologically possible?

We had the same a couple of weeks back.

The weather man on the telly did explain how it happens, but I wasn't really paying attention so I suppose I'm not much help really.

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)

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. :(

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.

Ice grips doing a fine job. :)

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:

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.

Meanwhile the Boss's Merc couldn't get over a speed bump....

As long as you don't try to get a train to France, you'll be fine. ;)

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! :O

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

First time since 1963 according to the Humber Harbour Master.

Wow! A Severn Class.

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. :O

Is Paul Hames still the harbourmaster or has he retired?
