I remember getting snow from November through to February/March. It was common to get school off for all the snow. In recent years you see a sprinkling in Janaury and that's about it.
Can't remember anything but a light dusting in recent years, hyped up by the london media who can't handle mild weather
selfishly, I'm hoping for tons of snow, because I've almost forgot what it looks like!
Wow you have a short memory. I remember Scotland quite literally grinding to a standstill in December 2009-January 2010. People all over the central belt trapped in their cars for hours - and it taking until 5-6pm in the evening for the authorities to realise that many people had been in their cars for up to 8 hours with (very probably) no food or water in their vehicles.
I had to drive to Edinburgh 2 days later - on a motorway that looked like a country track decorated with jackknifed lorries. The following day - a trip to work 10 miles from my home - took me four days to complete
I know you're slightly further south than me - but my son was in London at this time - and he got trapped on Luton beach for 2 days because of the amount of snow down there. Surely you saw more than a light dusting in the Pennines?
The year before the sea at my folk's place was frozen!

Wow...UK getting pounded with snow while in BC, Canada we get pounded by rain. Better make sure you have enough heat to survive "the day after tomorrow"
