    Not a huge amount in Minehead, but we're closed - as a lot of staff come from Taunton way where conditions are worse and its getting worse here too.

    Business as usual here in South London, it is extremely cold though! I can feel the cold through the window even in my office!

    A good map for those who want to watch the chaos unfold though. With Twitter #uksnow commentary (plenty of grumpy and disappointed people in the East this morning!). Weather Radar - Live UK Rainfall Radar - Netweather.tv

    If most people are out then

    Step 1 use PA system for own music or hall/theatre into a cinema
    Step 2 Raid school canteen

    Anyone questions why say you anticipated the worst and needed company and food rations

    Our firewall complained about the volume of traffic we're getting, lol. Just adjusted the throttling rates so it doesn't think we're under attack.

    We have about 2cm of snow here, but as we are hardy yorkshire folk we carry on regardless, and as the caretaker quoted "this in't snow, y'ant s'in snow you young 'uns, when I were a bairne it'd be 4foot deep and we still went t'school"

    Go to school in 4ft drifts - luxury! When I was at school, we had to tunnel our way through the pack ice. In bare feet. If we were really cold when we got in, teacher would chuck us on fire to warm up.

    You were lucky to have a fire! If we were cold we were allowed to put our hands in our pockets, if we were lucky enough to have them!

    One of our teachers has rang in rather shocked that they've got half a foot of snow where they are at Wheddon Cross. We've got about 0.05cm so far.
