Well the bad weather in UK has just hit Oxford...everything was covered in snow in about 2 mins. There was also a loud crash of thunder and lightning.
Now I can't ring on my mobile - lines seem to have gone. Looks very good from my window though. Pity I've got a 15 min walk to see my daughter in 90mins...

SNOW TIME(joke)

Norman and his wife live in Fargo. One winter morning while listening to the
radio, they hear the announcer say, "We are going to have 8 to 10 inches of
snow today. You must park your car on the even numbered side of the street,
so the snowplow can get through." Norman's wife goes out and moves her car.
A week later while they are eating their breakfast, the radio announcer
says, "We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your
car on the odd numbered side of the street, so the snowplow can get
through." Norman's wife goes out and moves her car again.
The next week they are having breakfast again, when the radio announcer
says, "We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. You must park......",
then the electric power goes out. Norman's wife is very upset, and with a
worried look on her face she says, "Honey, I don't know what to do. Which
side of the street do I need to park on so the snowplow can get through?"
With the love and understanding in his voice, like all men who are married
to blondes exhibit, Norman says, "Why don't you just leave it in the garage
this time?"

2 inches of snow and the country grinds to a halt.
No taxis, no trains, a few buses.
The taxis are afraid of damaging the cars.

Fact is that Londoners are snow-weenies. They don't understand it and are Afraid.
The irony is that so many of them are also afraid of Global Warming. It never seems to occur to them that if we actually ever manage to control global warming (assuming it exists) the natural result will be worse weather.....

We got about about a foot. My office was open but I'm a weenie so I stayed home.
