Thousands of air passengers faced severe delays after runways at Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Stansted and Luton airports closed for snow to be cleared, with some flights also cancelled at Heathrow and Gatwick.
This is the news that greeted me when I woke up at 6.00am this morning, a quick glance out of the window confirmed that the forecasters were correct. It did not start snowing here in London until around 4.00am so all that snow fell in just a couple of hours. This amount of snow is not unusual in the north of the country but is very unusual here in the southeast.
Fortunately I am working from home today so I can sit here in the warm, no commute for me today ;)
A special picture for those of you in Malta & Gozo that have the desire to see snow. It's bloody freezing here..
