Quoting there from the cheerleader chant in one of our manager’s favourite films, but it couldn’t be more apt as snow wraps the UK in a blanket of chilliness. According to BBC Radio 4 weather this morning winter doesn’t officially start until tomorrow … Sorry?! I didn’t quite catch that?! Anyone who has braved the outdoors today with multiple layers on will agree that winter is well and truly upon us!
According to an article in the Guardian, up to 5.8cm fell in the Midlands and more is set to follow across the entire country. Even the capital is getting a pounding, and to those brave souls who battled into the office today on their bikes, we salute you! Trains, buses and cars all struggled to keep moving, with some rail commuters in Kent left stranded for over 2 hours after points froze!
It’s not all doom and gloom though, as schools across the land have given early Christmas presents to their pupils in the form of snow days.
With the chill expected to last for the rest of the week, it’s time to get that coat, hat and scarf on!
