So we've had the coldest December in 13 years. I wonder just how cold it'd be if it wasn't for global warming keeping the temperature up---allegedly??

Well Beth, they certainly have seemed to become extinct in Berkshire! In 30 mins, the landscape has just turned from green to white and it's only just started.

They're just reporting that we're likely to have the coldest winter for 20 years.

It's equalled anything I've seen here in Berkshire in 32 years, and certainly never seen 40cm ---16 inches---in 40. The last time I saw that was winter of 1968, and that was in Manitoba-----slightly west of Oxford!  Gotta run---the sled dogs getting ready to go in the back yard!

Well I took the boys to school at 9am yesterday & had to fetch them back at 11am with all the snow. Still waiting for them to announce school clusures today - I hope they are shut - took me an hour & a half to bring back my boys and my friends girls yesterday - they picked up a snowball every 2 seconds! Terry has walked to work - hope he will be OK- he is still not right after the op. The snow is too deep to drive up our road - my neighbour is trying to get up there now!

Like most in the UK it seems, plenty of snow (about 8 inches so far in Oxford) and still coming. Transport, schools, work patterns all affected.

Strange, when we had this sort of weather 'years ago' we still went to school, the roads were 'gritted' rather than salted and when we got home from school we picked up the shovel.

Chains were available and carried in vehicles as the norm and life carried on! What happened, what a load of whimps we are?
