Guess What I'll Be Doing Today.

Recommended Posts

lol it's not THAT bad over here, but I guess we'll have more than 50cm tomorrow :o it's snowing the whole day...

That's how much we got in the storm yesterday. Third storm in the last week and a half. I think we have had a total of 70 or 80 cm's fall in that period. Thankfully some of it melted before this storm hit. Apparently we're getting another one this week too. LOL This is the worst we've had in years.

it could still snow here (SE UK), like it has the last 2 years. Torrential blizzards, literally about a foot of snow in only a few hours.

 

The passage of this front produced squalls, a sudden drop in temperature and a period of heavy snow which settled quickly (even in central London where 2 to 4cmfell). There were also many reports of lightning and thunder.

 

North Wales, northeast England, the Wolds and parts of East Anglia had significant falls, with depths up to 15cmin places. All forms of transport were seriously disrupted. Scampton/Lincolnshire recorded minus 8.0°C on the 28th.

 

That was last year

Snow showers on the 29th left significant falls over Wales and parts of the SW and central southern England, some thunder was also reported.

 

Later during the 30th more substantial bands of snow affected east coast counties, East Anglia, Essex, Beds and Herts, giving between 5 and 12cms in most places. N and NW suburbs of London also experienced a period of heavy snow late afternoon and early evening. There was major disruption and gridlock on motorways in Essex and Herts, some tube networks were also affected.

 

And that was within one day, exactly a year earlier, 2003.

 

And it's almost "that time of year" again.

Around my neck of the woods it's currently a nice brisk 60F (16C for you foreigners) without a cloud in the sky. It's so great, no snow to shovel, no need to wear heavy jackets...I think I might actually go and bike up the mountain today. ;)

Haha, Renzatic :) We're actually in the upper-50s here (Fahrenheit), have been the past week or two. Abnormally warm for this time of year for us. A few of the ski passes are closed due to melted snow and the lack of any new snowfall. We've broken a few of our records with the warmth. Should help out with the heating bill a little bit! :)

 

New Horizon - That's a great pic! That's just crazy.

I usually have pretty mild winters where I'm at...but you can never trust it. The biggest snow I've ever seen, which was about as deep as NH's picture, came about during one of our warmest winters ever...right at the end of March.

 

5 feet of snow and alot of frightened rednecks. We wern't equipped to deal with it since on the occasions when we usually get snow it's only about half an inch and melts away within a day...there were sections of town that were without power for 2 weeks. But my god...the sledding was epic.

What I hate is the way the temperature is going up and down. Two weeks ago we broke 100 year old records for warm temperatures. Mid January and +17C. Then three days later it was -34C with the wind chill. :angry:
