In my experience, snow is great when it's an idea - and often looks lovely from the comfort of a nice warm pub - and when you're not on a skiing holiday, but the reality of snow soon palls...

Does Lydney usually get that kind of weather wmoore? Or is this being conveniently attributed to climate change?

Snow is best viewed from airliner windows, or on xmas cards.

No not really. We live just above Lydney in Yorkley. The temp is going to drop
to -8c tonight..The climate change people have been very quiet.
It's stopped snowing, but the main problem is ice.

Well actually global warming will make the UK colder as it will turn off the gulf stream due to the ice melting and dumping all that fresh water into the Atlantic, which will force the warmer saltwater down lower

I haven't been able to make it to work for the last couple of days. The main roads are gritted but trying to get to them is the problem. The roads around us in the mornings are like sheets of ice. And of course all the schools are shut, so finding childcare is another problem as well for working parents.

I love the way the global warming theory can cover every eventuality - providing the climate doesn't stay exactly the same then "climate change" is due to man and we're all doomed if we don't become instant greenies. Trouble is it then becomes indistinguishable from pseudo-science.

It's sad but true I have seen and felt the effects. I am not a greenie nor a global campaigner but I can see the difference even in my short lifetime

But on the flip side once they introduce carbon tax, everything will be fine with the worlds weather, yada yada yada.

Other day by comparsion where I was, 49 three days running with a average of 35 at night with 90%+ humidity. And we were all wishing for a *cold* change.
