London Snow – Our Last Taste of British Winter

Guess what? It’s snowing!

One of the things we’re looking forward to when we travel is escaping the dreary British weather; we’ll definitely be glad to see the back of all the lukewarm summers and soggy grey winters. There is, however, one type of weather we love: Snow.

It may not happen often, but when it does snow in the UK, we go crazy for it. Schools seem to shut their doors as soon as the first snowflake hits the ground, while shops run out of rock salt and the train services grind to a halt, causing chaos for commuters and generating acres of news coverage. We Brits love to moan about the weather, so we certainly cheer up when the snow starts coming down!

London Snow – Our Pictures of a Snowy Dulwich Park

There’s tons of snow in London today and it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop anytime soon. Andrew and I thought we’d make the most of our last taste of London in the snow so we headed to our favourite park to enjoy the best part of the British winter before we jet off to warmer climes. Here are our snow photos of Dulwich Park:

    There is something magical about snow. Here we are in Paris and we’ve been told that it rarely snows in Paris and yet here it is, snowing nearly everyday. Yesterday, we were at Montmartre and it was amazingly beautiful! And I love what you said about everything comes to a halt when snow hits the ground because that’s what we’re seeing here in Paris. The sidewalks are covered in packed snow turned to ice so we work really hard not to fall on our asses, the garbage is piling up on the sidewalks (not such a great thing) and the tires on the tiny little cars that Parisians drive are spinning like crazy. We agreed we don’t think we could have visited Paris at a better time!

      Hi Patti – it sounds like you’re having a brilliant time in snowy Paris! It is quite amazing just how much difference snow makes to the atmosphere of a city, especially cities like London and Paris which aren’t geared up to deal with snow!

    Great photos! A city can take on a different kind of beauty covered in snow. Looking forward to following your trip!

      Thanks Shaun – unfortunately the snow has almost melted now; I’m glad I got a last taste of it before we leave though!
