How joyous!
I am flooded with photos by Ausralians in the Uk just beside themselves to be in the snow....

Wonderful: i swear I was trotting by your side the whole way.
And a private viewing at the Tate Mod?

Then antony Gormley meets andy goldsworthy in London?? Too good.

Is it SO unusual for snow to fall in London? When I was little all the Christmas cards were printed in England. Lots of snow scenes. Which would get our hopes up, that it might actually snow in Ireland. That we might be able to make a snowman, for heaven's sakes! But it never stayed on the ground more than three minutes! It does transform a place though......

It was a special kind of a day and it very unusual for that quantity of snow to fall in London... certainly not since Dicken's day!

The ice is just as slippery in Helsinki (even if they do know how to keep the buses running) as my own limp will atest.

I think it only snowed anything like that much 2 or 3 times in the 15 years I lived in London; and only once in the 6 years I was in Brighton. So dealing with it all comes down to economics and taxes inn the end...

Even when the snow stays (for 3 or 4 weeks here now) it gets depressingly grey and covered in grit/sand (and other unmentionables) in the city centre until it snows again; but at least out in the suburbs it stays a bit fresher and takes away the winter gloom.
