I've returned home from Londinium to find a dusting of the white stuff. Anyone else got snow?

Greetings from "nearly Cote D'azur", France. Up in the mountains here (40 km from Nice) got heavy snowfall, approx 35 cm during one night. It's still there. I like it (...once car and roads were cleared).

I bought a set of snow tyres for my car 4 years ago and, here in Kent, it hasn't snowed since......!

I'd say that was money well spent!

No snow in Vancouver so far, in fact the weather is decent for riding at the moment. Nothing but sunshine and relatively warm ( for December) daytime temps approaching 50 f.
Lots of that new liquid salt on the roads, so forget the riding idea.
It might as well snow!

 Got about an inch and a half last night. Not enough to get out the snow blower, but more than I want to shovel.

 More expected Sunday night and maybe Wednesday.

Woke up to a good covering this morning; about 2 inches, (50mm) and it's still coming down. Snow is not common in the south of Britain these days so it's a novelty.
