OK so it snowed last night in the South East of England.
Not more than an inch, but it caused chaos on the roads.
Gatwick Airport looked very festive at 04:00.
1 lane of the A3 was closed and nutters on the M23/M25 going to fast for the conditions.
Seems when ever we get snow the transport infrastructure falls apart!

I had to go to Gatwick this morning at 6:30 to return to Switzerland. Many people driving to slow on the M 23 it was well salted and plus 3 deg I think 40mph was a bit extreme, nice to be back driving on white roads and more than minus 5 at lunch time today.

When will England get the right tyres for cold weather, winter tyres perform a lot better than summer ones at under 7 deg.

Oh i'm chilled;-)
Even more so tonight with it being an even colder night.
Expected to be -5 @ Gatwick tonight.
Snow ploughs on the ready!!

Surprising, snow does tend to fall at this time of the year...:-)

I remember once when Heathrow was under half-an-inch of snow by 6am and the resulting chaos to incoming and outgoing flights was almost laughable.

WTM. We know how proud you are of your new grand child of course, but if you are going to keep mentioning that you are a grand father all the time. When are you going to hand out the cigars?
