Came back home with a frozen face. Haven't measured with a ruler snow thickness here, but now it's -12C and forecast for this week show it's going to slide down to -26C!

The forecast for North East England is that the temperature is expected reach -18C in some places tonight although I expect that to be in the high, open areas of Co. Durham & Northumberland.

We've had approx 25-30cm of snow here in the last 3 days and there's more expected. In fact, the Met Office have issued severe weather warnings for the whole of the east coast of England & Scotland.

What's worse is this is adverse weather for us so our councils have been caught unaware. I haven't seen one gritter or snowplough since it started on Friday. The local buses (GoAhead)are finishing at 19:00 tonight and the trains on the East Coast Main Line have been affected.

We really aren't prepared for this weather in Blighty.

Warsaw was gridlocked today. There was several centimeters of snow and it was snowing constantly during the day. If you wanted to go somewhere you'd better use rails (or hope that you can get to your destination by tram/underground/train, because all the roads were converted to a big, white parking lot.

It was SO peaceful to walk through the snowy city. I LOVE SNOW

Funny enough, here in Spain there was a ice cream group called Miko, like the heartbrand in France. Now it's Nestlé ice creams...
And I like the name the heartbrand takes in N Ireland, both British and Irish. Perhaps the ice creams sold at ferry Leghorn-Barcelona should change their name to Algida Frigo . (Now it's only Algida)
And the link to Wikipedia?

I woke up early to realize there is a very weird weather outside. Wind gusts 10 min, followed by calm. Then more wind gusts. Snow from Monday didn't melt, just a little (sun heating), so the grass here in the University is looking ugly (you know, that brownish look partially melted snow + frozen mud get).

Central? At least here around Alps 40+ cm of snow is pretty normal for winter. Some chaos on the day of snowing (some more, if it is in the beginning of winter), but normal next day.

There are news from the Clinched Motorway Mapping: Now you can map your clinched NJ state highways and Austrian and Danish Euroroutes! Chris, I believe you should update your list, you traveled through Denmark and the southern part of Catalan C-32...

Well you know how diverse Central Europe is. In town located in Northern Slovakian moutains it is also not odd but in Southern Slovakia on a lowland you might not use winter tyres.

btw, grrr! Where are the maintenance cars here in England?! Surface on a roads and pavements it's just like ice and it is even harder to walk on it. :P

just one mobile pic to see how bad it is
