Dear SYB,

Is anyone else willing to set up a paypal account to send Bison home so he can enjoy the snow, just aiming for a single though.

8am this morning in Surrey, needless to say, there were only two of us in the office and we lasted about one hour before leaving. Can't believe I flew 8 hours from AD to sit in a hotel room!

Jings, all this hype. Coming from the north east of scotland, this snow (albeit inland from the coast) to glamis or Kirriemuir, this snow is pretty common..

Bloody cockney london twats thinking its 'amazing' cause they have a little snow..

I am with you, it only snows like this in the south once every 40 years, a bit like an England World Cup Win...

The only time it will happen in Scotland is if it rains cats and dogs

during my 3 year stint back in England I was always looking forward to snow as I still had snow tyres on my car. was looking forward to driving around in comfort whilst everybody else struggled. Never bloody happened though
