British Snow Pictures November-December 2010 [03:37]
On Wednesday 25th November 2010 the snow hit Britain. Arctic conditions battered Scotland, which received 6 inches in 8 hours. The snow then spread south hitting Northern England and Yorkshire and it wasn't long before weather records were being set all over the country; on the 28th, Wales experienced it's coldest ever November night with a temperature of --17 °c and it soon became clear that this was the earliest widespread snowfall for 17 years. As Britain moved into December there was still no sign that the weather would lighten up and on the 1st of December the UK's capital, London, got its share of the snow. As Londoners woke up to the snow it soon became clear that not only the capital's but the whole of the UK's transportation network was incapacitated with trains being cancelled and cars being left on highways. Airports were closed all over the country, large ones, as far north as Edinburgh and as far south as Gatwick and Southampton. On top of this, thousands of schools were closed as councils battled to de-ice playgrounds and paths. It is thought that for every 1 day the UK is "closed due to snow" the economy loses £1.2 billion in lost revenue.
