Newsflash! Someone saw a snowflake
January 12, 2017 1:01pm CST
This has to be one of the silliest snow headlines! I am always amazed at the way Oxford reacts to snow. Oxfordshire (gasp!) has had a couple of snowflakes! Having lived in the North and in Derbyshire where you get real snow it always makes me laugh. On Derbyshire my kids once managed to build a real igloo. However, just now I am in South London with my daughter and we have about a quarter of an inch here and snow with rain. I doubt it will last till morning.

@Jackalyn In our case, it seems to have meant a light crusting on the top of cars and just a little whiteness (in patches) on well-insulated roofs! It seems that parts of London and Essex had more. Much more worrying is the potential flooding on the East coast due to a high tide and strong onshore winds. I'd love to live close to the sea but not in a caravan park on old sand dunes or in any low lying area!
