    Won't the dogs get frost bite on their feet and nuts from too long in snow? Just a dumb question cause I seriously don't know if it can happen to them as well.

    I imagine they would do, but they weren't out for that long, the temp is only about -4c so not really that cold, unless you laid down in it for a few hours, all 4 dogs have been having a great time bouncing around outside.

    All the schools are closed, most airports including Gatwick and Heathrow, locally the buses are not running, many trains are cancelled too.

    Yep in some areas it is the most for about 20 years, but that is mainly in London, we live further out so we've seen it deeper.

    I tried to phone them just now but no answer, I guess they outside having a ball. They were so excited yesterday with about 1cm of snow I can just imagine how much fun they having now.

    No, that's where my folks live. My kids are adamant they want a double storey :( Oh well, at least the stairs will be a bit of exercise for me :p

    Cool :D

    I must say, I hate a double story, at times I leave my cigarettes upstairs while im down, and damn it's such an effort to walk those stairs, especially before going to bed :p

    There's not many at work today, the overground trains were cancelled, as are buses - even the underground trains can't run (over 60% of the tube trains start outside London as overground and only go moling near central London)

    And all the kids are diving in the snow, it is great fun.
