    I travelled home for the holidays yesterday expecting Kent to be sunny and glorious in comparison to Leicester. Not only is it colder, but the snow is ridiculous. It's hard to see the other side of the street when it picks up. Perhaps most bizarrely of all, there was a bit of lightning earlier, which is pretty damn rare in a snowstorm!

    On the train from Leicester to London it was weird looking at huge snow drifts in Northamptonshire and green fields in Bedfordshire. Weirdness.

    Can someone explain to me why the snow here in London is like tiny balls?
    Like the stuff you get inside IKEA packaging :p:
    Ah! the little polystyrene ball kinda things are something called graupel. They are soft hail - a kind of cross between snow and hail. :/. I saw loads of these at the train station the other day and wondered what they were so I looked it up :P

    Really? I thought you'd all be absolutely freezing with all that snow! But if I'm to take your word for it then I must also conclude that she's inhuman. There's no other explanation for it!
    Obviously she is a wizard you know.

    Santa just passed by my window! Just like last year. I'm in my room, then I hear jingles outside on the street. It's a guy dressed up as a Santa, with a cosy sleigh and horses. And children can take rides on it.

    It's all snowy and nice outside too. So it's quite cool, lol.:^_^:

    I was meant to be going to see deadmau5 tonight but we can't get in because of the snow. It's an absolute disgrace that the gig's still even going ahead to be honest. It's practically encouraging people to drive in dangerous conditions - we're not going to, we did last year to see Basement Jaxx and ended up stuck on the M2 all night, so we're not risking it again. 6+ inches of snow fell in less than an hour for ****s sake. This is taking the piss.

    Most people only love snow when it's not here.
    I personally don't mind it.
    But the only reason I don't like it is for my friend who's disabled and in a wheel chair so he's homebound for the whole time. It doesn't affect me, but other than that it can be fun
