I am delighted to see that snow is greeted with enthusiasm in the uk.

We don't get much of it sr, so any amount is met with excitement in our house. It would just be nice if we could get a big pile for a week or two, so that the kids (and us) could have some fun in it.

I would be quite happy if that was IT, thank you very much (not a big fan, if I want to play in snow I'll go to somewhere, well, snowy)

swamprose I greet it enthusiastically, and then want it to go away as quickly as possible....we are just not set up for it in this country, everything grinds to a halt....you would not believe how much news coverage this small snowfall got.....

Paintist ... yes, every year we seem surprised that we live in the northern hemisphere. Snow on the tracks? We never saw that coming ...

It never ceases to amuse me how this country grinds to a halt with even the mention of snow.

On BBC London news last night I caught the tail end of an argument between London Underground and Railtrak (I think), about how they need to plan to not be caught out by "surprise" snowfall.

Just reminded me of "Life of Brian" where they call a meeting to discuss a meeting to discuss a plan of action.

Just daft!! :)

I really enjoy your excitement about that little bit of snow. by my standards, and probably bfish and pr's, your snow is the lightest dusting. the fact that it causes angst and chaos is hilarious. throw up your arms, abandon the car, it is snow! loving it.

It is hilarious indeed as every year we get the same thing, a hint of snow then blanket news coverage and chaos on the road and rail networks.

I flew from NY a couple of years ago where the snow was really bad and some flights were cancelled, but the place carried on pretty much as usual. As the flight neared London, the pilot warned us of "extreme weather conditions" on the ground at Heathrow and that we could face a delay, only to openly laugh and make sarcastic comments when we landed and could only see the odd little bit of snow much as we have now.
