The same thing happened in Paris as well....

Way to go Mercury

Here's a copy of the latest news here. Retro Mercy is really doing it's job

NEW SNOWFALL CAUSES TRANSPORT CHAOS

Winter White Out

A BAND of snow has hit London and eastern parts of the UK and is heading west, causing snow showers across the country.

Residents in London, the North East, East Anglia and the South East woke up to a covering of snow - which was particularly heavy around Basildon in Essex.

Forecasters say temperatures will struggle to rise above freezing in England and Wales today, but the extreme cold temperatures should ease over the next couple of days.

Temperatures will drop to minus 1C rather than the harsh minus 8C to minus 15C seen in recent days.

Traffic heading to the South West has been paralysed by an accident in Wiltshire, caused by the icy conditions.

An accident caused by weather conditions on the M27 in Hampshire between junctions five and eight also caused major delays.

In Scotland, traffic on the A90 in Aberdeenshire was forced to slow to a crawl due to the ice.

"People are taking it a bit more easy on the motorways - at the moment people seem to taking a safely, safely approach which seems to be working," a PA WeatherCentre spokesman said.

On mainline railways, a combination of the severe weather and signalling problems has led to delays for many travellers.

Snow caused the line between Hexham and Newcastle in the North East to be closed, leading to cancellations and delays on Arriva Trains Northern services.

Hi Cat!

Winter is setting in here, in Northern Michigan too...I drove home tonight (on about 10 miles of country roads), on very icy roads...and like you said...the snow made the woods look like a winter wonderland....

Can be pretty...but treacherous...sometimes...

Cat.....when you speak of the snow in London.....pictures of Dicken's CHRISTMAS CAROL pop into my head......*sigh*....(Charles Dickens, is one of my very favorites)....

....anyway, I can see old Scrooge...shuffling down the snowy street grumbling........and Bob Crachitt dashing thru the London streets happily toward his loving famly...*sigh*....

I would LOVE to see London some day....

Hi Rainbow
It's really excellent to see you here

I do hope your health is much improved and that your Mum's doing well.

I love that cottage - can just imagine snuggling up in front of a roaring fire inside it

The snow's all gone now - that was a really unusual for central London to see snow. I know what you mean about Charles Dickens
Hopefully one day soon you'll come over for a visit.

I love that cottage too, Cat...it's a Thomas Kinkade painting (he's done a lot of beautiful stuff)..... and yes, I'd love to be snuggling up in there, in front of a roaring fire...(with Hal Ketchum...tee hee)....

I'm doing better....Mom's recovering well from her surgery and is taking radiation and chemo treatments....she's in good spirits and has a great positive attitude! Thank you for asking...*sigh*..

I MISS SNOW!!! I lived in NYC for 13 years and in Wisconsin for a year... and Texas, too, but no snow there, heh!

Now that I've been in Los Angeles for 3 years I really miss seasons.

------------------
i feel so lonely when i'm not with you ..it's such a shame that i'm spending my time without you ..yet i have found you're from a different world ..don't you understand we ride on a space-ship out of control, how sublime

Amber I miss LA...I suppose the grass is always greener you know? I have lived in Florida now since I was 15, and everyone I know has such a negative image is Calif and all I remember is people on the same wave length as me, all sorts of different people, people were open, the beach, the life everything was , over there I remember people smiling, people searching for a higher ground, then I came here to Florida and was a little turned off by the people here..I have friends but they are hard to make..funny alot that I make lately are in Calif...I mean don't get me wrong Florida is a great place..but I'll never denounce Calif the way some people do..but I do wish it wasn't so expensive

I suppose I grew up mainly there and loved it..

I don't know about the rest of California.. but Los Angeles seems to be full of a lot of fake people to me. You know what I mean... the fake body parts, perfect hair, perfect bodies, perfect tans, etc. NYC had its share of that but NYC was more in your face and honest even with the icky stuff than Los Angeles.

It's like... someone in Los Angeles will smile at you with disdain and then turn around and mumble "I hate that girl"

In NYC... someone will just say "F*ck off!" to your face.

LOL!

But I do LOVE Santa Monica here. The beaches and the vibe of Venice Beach. And really I do enjoy that I don't need a big coat anymore.

But I do miss being cold and hopping into bed with 2 big blankets and being cozy there in the warm bed. I miss seeing my breath on the air or walking briskly when it was cold outside.

Hey sounds alot like Boca Raton! I mean there are cool people you just have to look. I know I know here there is a huge emphasis placed on materialistic things and boob jobs many people are fake, from their personality to their skin..

*sigh* I don`t believe I saw the adorable kitties you sent me Thank you They`re (mine) fatter this year than last.....

Geez, time flys and we`re looking at the same Dickens scenes again. Odd how a few sunny summer dazes can make one forget the blizzards, wind and ice. I`ve got my Imbolc seeds planted and am thinking spring

Wheres Cat> Wonder if she found the fireplace of her dreams.
