Keep it. I've had enough of the white / grey / black / slushy stuff.

My parents in Essex said it was getting quite horribly bitter cold. I guess they keep quite the eye on the weather in the northeastern US states during winter, and know that their weather will be a slightly milder version of what they have in the northeast US a few days later.

My uncle and his family are in Buxton, Derbys., and have had quite the horrible snow recently.

I've got snow in Buckinghamshire. Woke up to the ground completely covered - about an inch thick.

Got home this evening and the front lawn still has some on it. It has been very cold during the day. Also had a bit of a "blizzard" on the way home for all of 5 mins. Didn't settle though.

We're in a valley so maybe that's why it settled at home, but not in the blizzard area.

No sorry, didn't think of that...most of it's gone now as there was some drizzle a few hours after. Although it's pitch black outside now so couldn't take a photo anyhow. If there's some there in the morning will take a photo and post it here.

Spent the morning on the beach at Sumner today, lovely sunny and hot

But crossing my fingers for snow soon, because it's only 12 weeks till the ski season starts
