It is not fair - I just LOVE snow - all we get are 100mph winds and rain - considering even the most southerly point of the UK is level with the Hudson Bay it is SO unfair!!!!

Can't say were getting that kind of wind here today - the gusts here today are only hitting about 30km/hr - good kite flying weather. Mind you combined with todays daytime high temperature at about -29C the windchill factor is somewhere around -43C. Oh well, at least it's a little warmer than it was a couple weeks ago...

Don't remember that one!!!

No much more recent - 2 years ago - stunning weather - went to the Southampton show and it was 26C in September.

Last year more than made up for it though - rained almost every day!!!
