London - The Blizzard of 2009


London has experienced its heaviest snowfall for 18 years. Most capital cities would laugh in the face of this much snow - but not London.

We'll be telling our children about how we lived through the great blizzard of 2009.....

    It's a rare occasion and warrants a day off to celebrate! I've been to England many times in the winter, but have only ever seen a light dusting of snow on one trip. Thanks for sharing!

    nice - me and outside have fallen out this week - I've had to battle my way to work every day in the sludge and ice :o( It certainly wasn't that pretty here in Reading
