I miss the serious snow. It's supposed to look like that New York picture here in Boston for months every year. A few years ago we got enough snow to bury a basketball star. Then last year it snowed exactly one day and that was it. This year we get 1-2 inches of snow every other week and it melts in less than 3 days. This sucks.

Look at Big Ben- 8.30am, that snow had not been there very long. The road would have been clear by lunch- but the edges would have been a 'mare. we got one morning- from 5.30 to about 10 - by about 3.30 the roads were okay- clear and a bit damp. Pavements and verges though were a mess for a day or two.

The issue is that the UK just doesn't have the infrastructure in place to deal with the snow. What's the point in buying winter tyres for the 1 day a year it may or may not snow?

To be fair I don't see them driving the cars out of the drive in the Russian one but agree we in the UK are not geared up for snow, there were snow ploughs running continuously out on the main roads while it was snowing though which is more than I expected.

lol. Unless you're in southern Ontario, or on the west coast (and to a lesser extent parts of the east coast, then there is LOTS of snow here.

@Gauddith
Moving of the worst snow and salting is the method used in northeuropean countries. So the roads have been cleared.

Really Canada is no a white square? When i went to Vancouver all i saw was white squares and south park esque canadians ^^.

Also there was no seriousness whatsoever in my comment.

It doesn't even snow where I live. It just gets hot.

This winter hasn't been bad at all. A couple of storms dropping 12"+ of snow but nothing major. In 2008 we had over 8 feet of snow on our front lawn at one point.

"... the cars driving over the snow turn it to slush ..."

No, it has to be pretty cold here to snow, and cars driving over it turn it to compacted snow - ice - if we don't put down salt and grit.

"I know this because Washington State has a very similar climate to the British isles. "

So you know about Britain because you live somewhere else ...

@Essersmith, I see no attempt to clear any roads. I'm pretty sure you're high. Picture one is in a far more humid setting, the cars driving over the snow turn it to slush. I know this because Washington State has a very similar climate to the British isles.

Picture two has very thick snow, in a dryer climate. One would assume that the snow wold then pile up much more, and last far longer.

Picture three is pretty much self explanatory.

Picture four is just a white square, I can tell you Canada is not a white square, it has varying climates, and is quite the sight. East coast Canada though, that's a scary beast.

Davy: Have no idea why they named it Newfoundland. Seems like Newfoundsnow, would be more appropriate.

Picture one: Road clearing system that works.
Picture two: Road clearing system that does not work.
Picture three: No system at all. (exagerated)
Picture four: Why bother?

Thing is the UK is quite far North- I am praying that both the Jet and Gulf streams keep going or it will be horrid. But I survived this years snow.... despite the fact that the night before there was no bread or milk to be had in town.

Yeah, the US is a big country with much climate variation. But if you take the climate of New York City (as shown in the picture), then the gradient of significantly increasing snowfall is correct.

Not all Canada is white. Here in Vancouver we've seen one skiff of snow that vanished the next day. Of course it rains like a sumbitch, but we like the all-year green. Kind of a grey-green, actually...

I live in the part of the United States you would call the "sun belt" and well.. it hasn't snowed here in over 20 years.
It gets cold enough, we're just in a desert. The city I live in has massive surrounding mountains that the clouds need to rain heavily in order to be able to get over the mountains. So, yeah, it hardly ever rains here, and it never snows.. :(

When I was living in the upper peninsula of Michigan (pretty much in Canada, but with the affect of lake superior), we got feet of snow at a time. Reaching up past the second floor of our dormitory by the end of winter. Now in the lower part of the state, the big snow fall of the year is but a few inches. I miss the snow.

I'm totally into this post as I know that Britain every year is unprepared for bad weather and they go on about "the wrong kind of snow" - whatever. Just buy some freakin' gritting machines! As for Gerry in San Diego, can we please keep that Torrey Pines picture a secret befoer another 50,0000 people pack up a U-Haul and move here!
