Yeah, but usually only a few centimeters before it melts away again within one or two days. What we had during the last 2 weeks was quite exceptional, this winter already caused 11 days of snow cover here, that's more than some winters will manage during three months.

Here in the South East of the UK (doesn't really usually snow much), this year there's also been a lot of snow in Kent, which is the part nearest to F and NL.

I have a stern Warning for you Neils , even though i don't really like you , i don't want this to happen to you. If your arrested , you will get deported , so try not to drink. + Your Host brother can get throw in Jail for 5 years, i know our laws are odd , but you have to respect them.

Deported for drinking?? in Denmark, you'll get a ticket or just a warning. Sometimes US laws are just insane

Hes not a citizen , + hes not even 18 , if he was 18 it would be different. But are laws may be a bit wacky , but hey why do you need to drink while you visit here anyway? Too me its unnecessary , i do drink Underage , yes but since i'm 19 i'm aloud to , in some states as long as you do it at home your ok.

In Denmark, it's perfectly legal to drink at your home no matter your age. I did as soon as yesterday (1 minute past midnight), and didn't get arrested.

Why? Legal drinking age in the USA is 21, so at 18 it's also illegal.

Same question...

I have nothing against you drinking, btw. I'm 18 and I do drink, but in the Netherlands legal drinking age is 16, so it's ok

This is the US & Canada which have the same LAWS , when you come here you have to respect them , i respect Canadian laws when I go there. If you don't Respect our laws , you get deported or kicked out , or in the worst case banned for certain amount of years.

Its a messy system , but its not getting corrected anytime soon , thanx to this stupid Heathcare plan. Its 18 @ home in most states , the cops don't care as long as its not a full blown party. But in 5 years i have a feeling it will be lowered to 18 or 19 depending on the state , like Canada.

I'm 15 and here (i'm in the UK atm) i'm technically aloud to drink anywhere, just not allowed to be sold it to (the law was 18, is now 21 in many cases and Sainsbury's (a hypermaket chain) only sells to 25+ )). I say technically because if I drink in public in the UK the police will escort me home to my parents.

i'm also allowed to drink technically anywhere. In Denmark, The minimum is 16 for buying it in stores and 18 for buying it in bars or restaurants. However, there are rumors that the gov't are going to raise the 16-year limit to 18, just like they did with tobacco.
