UPDATE: It's snowing that heavily this morning, I don't think even Captain Oates would turn out in it. At nearly nine, the lights are still on and it's dark outside.
Here in Yorkshire, on the night of the 4/5 December, it is snowing heavily. To have snow in early December is, in my experience of sixty-plus years on this planet, not normal. And yes, I know it is just weather. But it is bloody cold weather and I wish it wasn't.
