I'm dreaming of a white Christmas (UK version)

Recommended Posts

I took a picture of a tree in my back yard a few moments ago using my phone's camera.

 

(The file is too big to upload, and I don't use third party image hosting, therefore I'll probably need to be walked through how to do this)

 

The reason I created this thread is because The last time I remember Wolverhampton, UK. having snowfall this close to Christmas without going over the 25th of December, was back in 2010.

 

I find snowfall at Christmas to be special, and (even though I'm 42 years old) magical.

 

Please share your recent Christmas feeling pictures of any snowfall you may have.

(Everyone's free to share, but this was mostly for those who felt the last few Christmas's gone just felt like any regular day, as it were).

Yeah, it's pretty unusual to get snow before Christmas here so it was a lovely surprise. I took my son out in the snow and he was so excited by it all. Here's a couple of pictures I took yesterday:

It's not region locked, my point was that the last time UK had snow during Christmas before or during the 25th was 7 years ago, everyone is free to share their image, it just needs to be personal, and not commercial or Google searched images.

I grew up in Wolverhampton. It hasn't been white in many, many years.

No, no, snow :) It used to snow lots in Wednesfield in the 1990s.

My neighbour's Van

Also it shows a little snowbank on the road, where the cars have left ruts... I believe the snow reached 6 inches deep in some areas here. Some areas have reported deeper.

Just an observation, it's a little strange going outside into my back yard at 2 in the morning, and being able to see quite clearly for quite some distance. A little akin to an early evening's light in bad weather. Usually it's difficult to see clearly the same distances on a clear night.

Damn, and here I thought it was 'cold' and its 60F /16C! :p But the irony of the whole thing is: At Amazon they have, in the parking lot, bins of snow/ice melt chained to the light poles, and they also have a sign that will turn blue if it drops to freezing, to alert you about the dangerous conditions!
