    Sure there is. Every single place except Swansea.
    That's what my brother (who lives in Swansea) has been saying today...

    There's even a facebook group of "Yay it's snowing, J/k i live in Swansea"

    I would have rather had no snow today though, then i could have gone to the gym and my lectures instead of everything being shut...

    I'm with you on this one.
    I can't possibly understand why adults can get excited about snow. I'm 19 at university and I know plenty of people who are excited about it...
    Yes it looks pretty. Yes it's nice if it snows around Christmas and you're in the warm looking out of it. But let's face it, it's frozen rain. Cold rain! Snow isn't terrible but ice is horrible. I used to slip up all the time on the way to school. You get chavs throwing snowballs at you. Traffic is awful and it's dangerous to drive. I get two buses to uni and I'm not looking forward to it.

    I feel like such a grinch saying all of this
    Really though, snow is all well and good when you can stay inside, preferably by a fire, and look out at it, and make the decision to go and build a snowman for like 20 minutes. But if you're forced to go out in it and travel in it, it's not that nice at all. And surely by the time you're 16-20, the novelty has worn off...
    I've only had proper snow that settles and is deep enough to make a snowman out of about 3 or 4 times in my whole life. The novelty hasn't even begun to wear off :grin:.

    I love snow, but that's probably because I don't need to drive anywhere and my uni is only ten minutes walk away .

    The thread is stickied once the snow fall slows down/stops for most of England? lol.....

    I hear it will be over by the weekend, then everybody can expect some ice, and Monday there's no chance of snow falling in England.
    Hopefully we can get another storm this winter, mid December preferably.

    Try being 17 and this being the first time you've ever had enough snow to build a proper snowman... :sadnod:

      The snow is awful. It disrupts everything and then the inevitable ice comes to replace it and then it's chaos for days.

        What I don't get is why TFL doesn't just hop on the phone to say, the Norwegian transport people and be like, "Yo, how do you keep your public transport system running when there's snow everywhere?" They've been doing fine with snowy conditions since forever. Why TFL are so inept at dealing with these conditions. I don't mind the snow but it does get frustrating when all of London seemingly shuts down because of some snow. Maybe I'm looking at it too simplistically, but surely getting advice from a country who deal with worse weather than this is better than pissing about and cancelling all trains, flights etc?

        Ok I've heard it's could snow in my area and I am really dreading it. And the reasons why is as follows:
        1.I have to walk to school, in my suit shoes which have no grip whats so ever so I'm going to either slip and fall and crack my head open or ice skate to school.
        2.There is a chance school will get called off. I have exams coming up and not going school is not the best idea.
        3.After the initial first footprints in the snow when the snow turns into slush and ice it's disgusting and dangerous.
        4.I have to shovel the snow out of my driveway shoveling snow is not easy trust me(I remember last year).
        5.Sure it is fun for like the first few hours but after that it's just downhill.
        I bet most of you are thinking :eek:
        You'd better get used to it because climate changed has f%£%ed up the gulf stream, making parts of the northern hemisphere colder while most of the rest of the world gets warmer.
        Winters in the UK are going to get even colder.

        So we're going to be getting this nearly every year?

          I usually love snow, though right now, the snow isn't the nice kind of snow where you can have snowball fights, it's more the 'slip on your backside' icy snow. :sad:

          On the bright side, I brought a hat the other day which should be a bit more insulating.

            Ive just had a snow ball fight in my lunch hour. Snow is awesome!

            At the weekend on sunday i drove from Shropshire to Aberystwyth and back to Staffordshire with the car reading an ourside temp of between -6 and -13 using snow tyres. Slowly. Getting three hours sleep before work on monday.
            Yeasterday i found that having left the car half a mile from my house ive dropped/placed/lost the key somewhere and after two hours of looking for it hitch hiked into work and started ringing garages and lock smiths. I juve had a phone call to say its sorted. tha cost me around hundred pounds.
            This weekend the biking trip in Bristol i had planned is called off becuase it doesnt seem sensable and im going to go biking on my own locally instead. ive spend £50 on new biking cloths/gloves this year.

            So yes, it does effect things, but you only need get grumpy if you let it.
