Giant swathes of the UK were coated in a real dumping of snow yesterday. The south-east of England was well-hit, but of course, fairly unable to cope. The timing was great for kids, as thousands of schools closed a day early for the Christmas break. Unlike our February snow day, Central London carried on with little fuss, while the counties surrounding London (including where I work) faced a proper snowfall.

The weather forecasters predicted further heavy snowfalls last night, but we seem to have escaped completely, and today was bright and sunny. Always an opportunist, I put my washing out on the line, chuckling to myself as I crunched through the snow.
Snow makes winter completely worthwhile.
