This photo was shown on the BBC News tonight and I thought it was stunning enough to post here. This is the snowfield that is Great Britain at the moment, taken from space by NASA.
As you can see there is very little of the country that's not covered by snow. I'm in my fifties and I honestly cannot remember this happening before. Even in the big freeze of 1963, the part of Cornwall I come from saw no snow whatsoever. This is just amazing.
