This time last week, we got 8 inches of snow dumped on us in 12 hours - which for South England is a lot - our cars wouldn’t get out of the drive and even our 3G card stopped connecting (which may or may not have been anything to do with the cold, but hey). Of course, it’s all gone now save for the remains of a really big snowman and we’ll remember that for a while. I wonder what would happen if this hit us.

Skiers are going to be talking about the Valentine’s Day Blizzard of ’07 for years to come. While it is difficult to give an exact measurement we reckon we have received between 40” and 48” (that’s 3 1/2 and 4 feet folks) from this historic storm. Needless to say the skiing conditions have improved to well beyond epic and are nearing mythic proportions. It is a blustery morning with strong winds and drifting snow. This is a day you are not going to want to miss. It’s truly incredible! To make matters even better we have even more snow predicted over the next few days.
