For a while, the idea of snow has been batted about. Will it snow? Won't it snow? Will it reach London? Did you see it sleet for two minutes? Well, at the weekend, it finally snowed in London.

It was the first time I'd seen snow in London and to be honest, snow at home is much more exciting. Sure, London looks clean for once directly after the snowfall but before long, the smog makes the ice black and the snow just melts away. Bit anticlimatic if you ask me.

I was on Skype to my parents earlier and they still have quite a lot of snow left in the garden. Here in London, the snow was practically gone before I had a chance to turn around and say snowball fight! Then again, it being London, I wasn't so inclined to have a snowball fight as the snow just doesn't seem as clean as at home. No offence London.

Anyway, I took a few pictures from the hill near my university so I thought I'd share them here. I was also in Soho when it snowed however I didn't have my camera with me then so I don't have any pictures of a dark, snowy Soho or Picadilly Circus.

Live long and keep blogging =]


  1. In November/December 2010 (the Monday after the Roothill Reunion in London) there was snow in Middlesbrough for 2 Weeks, I actually forgot what grass looked like.

  2. It's usually this time of year when the Media goes mad and goes along the lines of The End of the World because it is Snowing (

  3. i'm working in a hardware shop this week, and there's been a lot of talk about how many snow shovels we might sell...
