Snow in London

snowman1.jpg This is my first official post. I thought I’d put in something about the snow we had last week. We had some accumulation, but not lots, as it’s been a fairly warm winter. A lot of people who don’t live in the UK might not realise that it actually doesn’t snow much here. We get as as many snowfalls here as in Dallas (my hometown), i.e., once or twice a year. Londoners get about as excited about snow as Dallasites, and apparently the two cities are equally prepared (i.e., not terribly) for the stress on the infrastructure due to snow and ice.

Here are some pictures of the snow around my neighborhood, SE1.

I am going to try to add pictures I took of snow in SE1 from January 2003 (they’re better).
