Snow! Then rain! Then sun!

snow in UK

Snow has hit the U.K. big time this week, with as much as six inches in some parts, creating traffic gridlock.

Heavy rains are expected to follow this evening (with flood warnings in effect in the Midlands, the South West and East Anglia), followed then by uncharacteristically warm weather by Thursday. Temperatures are predicted to reach 54 F in the South West, 52 F in London and 48 F in the North, Midlands and Scotland.

Talk about temperamental weather. The only thing missing is the heat wave! Maybe next week?

Wiltshire gets naked in the snow

Leanne Myers

It started with a Facebook page called “Wiltshire, Let’s Get Naked in the Snow” started by Leanne Myers, a 40-year-old from Durrington, Wiltshire. With the recent snowfall in the U.K., over 250 people posted their photos (all fairly tasteful – like “Calendar Girls”) in the first three days and the page has since received nearly 10,000 likes. The craze has reached the U.S. and the Middle East, with non-Brits posting to their pics to the page as well.

Check out some of the news stories and photos.
