Sadly not enough to not be able to drive to work though. I know to many Kaleuns snow is just part of life, but here in the UK, we go a bit silly, either the country grinds to a halt over what you other guys would consider a 'light dusting' or it's gone by 9am!

Who else got the snow in the UK?

Here's RJ's exclusive beach side residence and luxury company car covered in snow:

Loads of the stuff in Cheshunt (just north of London). Like you I managed to arrive at work, so no day of SH3 for me then.

Came back from Artic Norway a few days ago, they have no problems on the roads out there. Used to it I suppose.

A fine dusting in Swindon, UK;

Picture was taken about 03:45hrs, and no I didn't get up especially - I was returning home from work!

And yes, you were right about it disappearing by 9am, 'cos the same white stuff that's in the photo is virtually gone http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

Its getting quite cold here over the last few days but we have snow and ice in the south only at the moment. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

Not that i didnt cursed the snow and cold weather over the last years but to miss it completely doesnt give you a good feeling either.

I hope that the snow front moves a little bit more north. Dresden already has snow and its not so far away from Berlin http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

The history channel in US says something about a "mini Iceage" could happen again in europe and North east america is possible. I think it could happen. More snow in future. It can be the opposite than the El Mino (how eva its spelled.) That we have been getting here in the states. Right now its cold now in PA USA. -2F? . I have a feeling global warming is just temporary because all the fires around the globe-California,Arizona etc... And other parts of the world with brush fires not to mention the oil fires that happen. We will see... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif
