Well, it's -13C here with a wind chill of -25C. Romanticise all you want about the snow, you Brits, right now I could do without it!

Well, you may have a point.

But here in the south of England, the absence of snow isn't just one of those Blue Remembered Hills things. If you live in a place which in the past hovered just above the 0C mark in winter, global warming does make a dramatic difference.

Winters really aren't what they used to be, so it's quite exciting in a nostalgic way when you have a hint of snow.

Deeply disappointing, a couple of centimetres at best.

There's a fair bit in Cambridge - not enough to really warrant spending an hour and a half to travel fifteen miles though.
