Southern England only gets maybe a week or two of snow a year, so it's a real treat when it arrives! But at the same time it can cause real disruption because no one bothers with winter tyres, snow ploughs or anything like that for a few weeks a year (and also when snowy weather was not even this common until about 4 years ago). I got sent home early from school because of a couple of inches of snow twice last week, and we started school late yesterday to allow time to clear the paths. And then half the kids weren't in anyway, so we couldn't do any of our normal lessons or we'd get out of sequence.

I'm enjoying the cold snap though... it's not "proper" cold by further-north standards, but it's below freezing!

It's supposed to snow a little again tonight and then again on Friday, with no temperatures above freezing between now and then, but after that the snow maybe over for this year.
