Summer Time Blizzard Hits the UK

Posted by Dan Satterfield

Snow covers Northern Wales this morning. Picture courtesy my good friend Alan Williams who just happens to be a professional photographer!

Just last Sunday the UK switched their clocks ahead one hour for “Summer Time”.  North America went to Daylight Time two weeks ago.

So imagine the surprise when heavy snow warnings were issued from the Met. Office and snow began to fall across much of Scotland and Northern England. It’s just been a crazy winter. Unseasonably cold in the UK and the Northeast USA.You can blame El Nino for much of it.

Meantime, the rest of the world  was incredibly warm. (see 5th warmest winter on record)

Now I know they hate it but as far as I am concerned, there is no such thing as too much snow!
