    Not quite sure if it's so much hot in London! It felt pretty chilly when I went outside at lunchtime. Various forecasts 9which is, after all, the norm) have described how pretty much the whole of the UK is expected to get some snow over the next few days (which means London probably won't. Yes, I know what happened a few weeks ago, but that's a rarity!).

    Rest assured that if it DOES fall in London to any significant degree.... bye, bye rail services! (I mean..... we only keep paying inflation busting rises each year, only to see them cope less and less each time we get some snow! Couldn't believe it yesterday afternoon. Hige police presence at East Croydon station. I was told it was to deal with fare dodgers! Fair (!) enough to a degree, but (a) they should worry about spending the money they used to pay the police on making the rail services actually worth paying for in the first place and (b) perhaps the police ought to have been better deployed arresting the rail bosses for continuing to defraud us, the paying public, of the services we've paid for in advance! Rant over! ;-)

    We had a light dusting a couple of days ago but nothing new.
    Oh well, i don't mind that much because i've not been at school anyway coz i'm poorly sick :cry: and if it did snow now i wouldn't be able to go out and play anyway.
    It can snow when i'm better :D

    We had a light dusting yesterday, but it seemed to be confined to an area of just a few miles - I think London and the trains are safe for a few more days!

    we had lots of snow at intervals. It snowed then stopped and melted, then snowed again and melted ect, so it was a very poor effort.

    About 6 inches of snow so didn;t make it to work - I did try but stopped 2 minutes down the road when the A55 was blocked and then took an hour to get home and a 5 mile detour!

    Was in Italy skiing with my school last week. Had 2 foot of snow from Wednesday night to friday lunchtime. Had to dig the bus out as the snow was up to the windows and then used snow chains. What surprised me though was that the snow had been there since November, was over 6 foot in places, frsh snow falling and everything carries on as normal. Here, a bit of a dusting and everything comes to a halt!

    Not that I am complaining of course - had a hell of a laugh today!
