The Tabloids Get Fired Up

Overnight and into tomorrow's rush hour, the meteorologists are forecasting another accumulating snow. The British Meteorology Office, as I write this, is getting so many hits I can't open it. Metcheck, a sort of Accuweather for the UK and Europe, is opening slowly, but once it opens I can see it is forecasting up to 3.9 cm of snow. I can hear the tabloid news teams going into overdrive now. Last week, they referred to it as "Snow Chaos," so I wonder what it will be this week.

We finally got a decent snow - about 4 inches but it's hard to tell since we had a little wind. It's enough to ski on but the temperature right now is minus 8 degrees and the high is expected to be about 15. So I won't be on skis anytime soon.

I thought London got frequent snow -- at least that's what Dickens always implied. Is global warming (climate change) the culprit?
