Jamie's first experience of falling snow

Imagine arriving at Heathrow, London , in mid-winter from Buenos Aires, Argentina, in mid- summer.

100ª F to 40ªF in 24 hours.

They said it would snow.....so Jamie put his alarm clock on 4 times in the night to check. I awoke at 5.30 am to the sound of silence, with the snowdrops falling and the roofs covered in white. What an amazing experience, and one even more appreciated after years in th East, Middle east and the Mediterranean.

Hi,from the UK

I'm glad you liked our snowstorm. You were lucky. It only really settles deeply around the London area once every 5 years or so. The kids had one or two snow days off this year which is rare and they usually take their toboggans to the nearest hill for the day.
