We are quite near London in the chiltern valley.
Last time we had lots of weather warnings etc. but nothing happened except for a heavy frost which was cleared by about 8am. We walked to school in
wellies - there were lots of puddles and it was quite warm. This was when all the airports were closed and the rest of the country came to a halt.
Just wish the weather warnings were more accurate. We get told not to travel unless it is absolutely necessary and then all we get is a heavy frost
which is too wet to be icey even.
I keep watching the met office site and they seem to always get it wrong. The snow shunts forward day by day then disappears.
Anway, we are down for LIGHT snow tomorrow and friday and HEAVY snow for saturday - so we will see ...
And yes I do know what proper snow is having spent a christmas in Canada when it was -20 (-30 if you include windchill). It was really cool having a
white christmas and actually in comparison to our wet winters, their dry cold was in some ways was better.
