Has anyone had any snow?

We (in Southport, on the north west coast) have had hail but that doesn't count.

It seems like it is snowing literally everywhere but here.  I'm in Canterbury and my in laws in Sheppey (40 minutes' drive away) have snow.  Where is my snow??  I just want to see Canterbury look like gingerbread houses.

It's snowing back home too.  I definitely don't miss NY winters though.

Checking in from Helensburgh, Argyll in Scotland.   :)  We had some on Thursday, but none now.

I am greatly disappointed. 2 days ago weather.com had us for 90+% chance of snow....for 3-4hrs. Now......nothing. I need to find somebody to blame.................damn Brexit. Or Trump. I'm sure one/both had something to do with this Yuge failure.

I've just been in the garden to feed the birds. No snow as I mentioned but the hardest frost of the year so far and the bird baths were frozen solid.
Can I appeal to everyone to please make sure their birdies have water and food while the weather's like this?  :D
After defrosting them, I've just spent literally 15 minutes watching bird after bird after bird enjoy a drink and take a bath!  Thanks everyone! :D

We got some!! This was about 9 am. We got about another inch after that. Then it turned to wet mush and now it's been snowing again. I'm in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire

I've got a tree that twinkles, a fire that flickers, and my nose has been nipped by Jack Frost.  But where is the snow??

If anyone has any snow that are not using, can you send me some please?

No Snow here in Glasgow West End. We were clear this morning, then a fog came in and stayed all day. As it was well below freezing, I hesitate to call that a fog, but not sure what else to call it. No rain, no snow, just fog at below freezing.... ??? Not sure we got up to 32F/0C at all today! Walked to the nearby shop to get milk and a newspaper and all the puddles were frozen over. Was REALLY glad there was no breeze or that would have been a brutal walk!

No snow but -4.

So we have done the only sensible thing we can do - booked tickets to go and see "It's a Wonderful Life" this afternoon.  That should get us in the mood for Christmas.  Nothing like seeing it on the big screen.
