The big freeze

This week has seen the coldest weather here since 1963. Thousands of schools across the country have been closed all week, and the freezing temperatures mixed with snow have turned the roads to ice rinks, and severely disrupted rail and air transport.

This is a satellite picture of Great Britain:

Here at home, we've had a couple of inches of snow. As we live on a hill, the road outside our house has been pretty hazardous at times with ice. Eden and I have had a much quieter week at home as a result, and haven't been out that much. Luke had to work from home yesterday as the snow and ice was too risky. At the moment, it doesn't look like the cold snap is going to end anytime soon....
