    Oh good. Don't forget to charge the batteries in your cameras in order to get yet more photos of your pet dog in the snow to send off to the BBC.

    Bloody snow. Bloody general public.

    We only need a light dusting and the world is ending.

    My favourite bit of a snow fall is the reporters on the news getting sent out to stand in the snow to say "its snowing and cold"

    It always makes headline news. Always. And the 'Your Pictures' section is always on the front page. Always.

    Oh good. A snowy field. Hurrah. A child wearing a scarf who should be at school but isn't because it's too dangerous, so he's now flying down a steep hill on a piece of plastic. Now a warning - snow is cold AND slippery.

    Fuck off.

    Ah good, I love catching the train when the weather is like that. The hours of fun you can have waiting for a service that is never ever going to arrive. Not that they bother to tell you that.

    The good old Daily Express. They must just have a Wheel of Fortune style thing which they whizz round every morning and it picks out "Weather/EU/Health/Diana/Rip-off Britain" and hey presto, there's your front page done.

    It is January, so snow would not be a total surprise.

    Anyway we do not have proper winters like what we used to !!!!!!

    I agree Frank.

    Work places and schools wouldn't close under a light flurry.

    Our drummer played cricket in Toowoomba last year. Rained for the first month he got there!

    Great place. Does rain a bit. The flash flood was fucking mental last year (January 2011). Made a right mess, that did.

    Why does snow cause chaos in Britain? It cannot be because we have never seen it before.

    Because the people that run the country are incompetent fools.
