    Its freezing in West London and Ive just noticed tiny snow flakes falling! Not enough to settle thank goodness.
    It has snowed at Easter before but its pretty unusual .

    Just a few flakes nothing sticking so far.


    I remember in 1975 it stared snowing the Thursday before Good Friday, it came that thick and fast they took all the buses off and I had to walk 5 miles home in 2 inch heeled shoes, the snow so got so deep it came up to my ankles, walking was so hard it took me nearly 4 hours to get home. It stay around for nearly a week.

    So jealous! We are having an early spring this year much to my disappointment. I like winter to run through April, like usual for where I live. I don't like it warm this early!

    No! Go away winter! We had a hard freeze the 1st and 2nd, then it warmed up enough that I put the pineapples and avocado plant outside, it needs to stay warm now TYVM! :)

    Woke up at 7 this morning to a light blanket of snow, but by 9.30 it has gone and the sun is bright, sky is blue but it's cold out there. I'm in Derbyshire.

    Just started to snow here in Kent

    I remember many years ago some friends and I were doing to look at a pony for the daughter on Easter Monday

    It started to snow and then to blizzard and we had to turn back. never did see the pony but she got a different one

    I would miss the autumn too much. :D I love the turn of the seasons, I just don't like it hot for very long and I certainly don't like it hot in March or April!

    Watch this @Siskin

    At 7am this morning we had the lightest of light snow, dancing in the wind. Sounds exactly like you describe @kimthecat
    It was forecasting snow at 10 but that was a lie and it was sunny, and still is

    Oh and @kimthecat not sure if you missed my new addition see Cat Chat!

    Really cold and with a chilling wind here in Essex. Tried to snow earlier but the sun is shining and it’s warm in sheltered spots.

    A bit of snow last night but today it is very sunny, very windy and very cold outside.

    No snow. Warm inside as the sun is beaming through the glass

    Warm and sunny here :cool: Ok not as warm as it has been earlier in the week, but I’ve been sat out in the sun this afternoon. With a jumper on, granted, but it was quite warm in the sun. I’m now off to sit out the back with a glass of wine and a dog magazine :D

    It won’t last. It’s always warm and sunny end of March/early April. I always take that week off work as it’s my birthday 1 April, and it’s invariably a gorgeous week weather wise. It will go cold and miserable again, but always sunny last week in March ;)
