Practical stuff first...
... and as always, call your airlines or check the website before you head out to catch that flight, be it from or TO London - or anywhere that weather is having an impact. Remember, when a big hub like London gets hit with delays, the effects are felt in airports all over the planet. Check your flight. Check your flight. Check your flight. Got the message?
Now, for some more first person reports...
Geek Chic has some cool pictures up of this unusual weather event, as does Pretty Portobello. There are even more Flickr pics at the hash tagged #uksnow group on Flickr. And here's some video on YouTube.
London was gorgeous in the snow, all soft edges and crunching footsteps. When the grey sky and cold precipitation, it was easy to slide back in time to the Industrial Revolution and imagine yourself part of a time long past...Bloody Brilliant
Even as early as 6 a.m. both the National Rail and SouthWest Trains websites were down. The IVR system wasn’t really working either due to ‘high demand’ and I hate IVRs that hang up on you and say ‘We’re busy, f*ck off and come back later’. I turned to Twitter and received a flurry of decent travel, tailored and localised to my needs, giving me every piece of rumour and unfiltered conjecture I need to stay at home.--Tailwind
If you happen to be in London and want to get in on the fun, here's Snowball Fight in London.
I'll be back to update as more links come in. If you're affected by the snow let us know what's happening.
