Where is the Snow?

For the past few years we have had some terrible snowfalls. For the most part it is further north this year with the south being mostly unaffected. Forecasts show a brief minor risk of snow flanked either side with rain and rather mild temperatures nearer Christmas.
So where is this snow? Seems to be plenty of gimmicks being punted by the advertisers.
I know people who have gone out buying snow shoe grips, snow chains, all sorts of stuff that you should use abroad in the Alps (who ironically have their own snow drought) but not in the UK. Even with the heavy snowfall in 2011 it made up a fraction of winter. But the snow entering the public conscience has had the placebo pushed into the public's hands by marketing companies.
Come to think of it, I've seen a distinct lack of festive spirit in the country too. Maybe Santa's elves will peddle snow shoes and tyres on a county market stall next year?
