It's... a little chilly out at night and first thing in the morning. :P

Today in Sussex is somewhat similar, except I'm feeling it rather more as I just came back from 3 weeks work in Sicily (20-25C lunchtime temperatures and generally T-shirt weather). Somehow I think I need to reacclimatise...

According to the QI elves on the Book of selfieFace the past tense of "snow" used to be "snew", which is rather pleasing :)

After waiting for over two hours at Reading on Sunday in sub-zero temperatures for trains that never arrived, or arrived but had literally no space to get on, or arrived but were re-routed or had their final destination cut short, I abandoned it, and tried to get to Bristol by coach
To find that the M4 was closed due to "adverse weather and related traffic incidents" so no coaches from Heathrow to Bristol
So excuse me if I curse this frickin' stupid weather and the frickin' stupid morons who can't run a transport infrastructure

Commuters left stranded as hundreds of train services are cancelled. And in areas where it has snowed it’s even worse.

We got proper snow today.
Luckily I'm in a country that's actually setup to deal with it, pretty much zero impact on transit.
I was delighted, i *like* snow (wel it would be rather silly to move to finland if I didn't) but i ate lunch at my desk so I could go for a 20 minute stroll in it today, happy snow filled phaze.
