Oh my! Looks like at least 6 inches of snow has settled out there. It could be more but I'm not going out to find out.

Chilly Britain Colder Than Arctic AND Antarctic

SUB-ZERO temperatures prompted panic buying across Britain yesterday – and made the SEA freeze.

Drivers filled up with petrol and supermarket shelves were cleared of bread, milk, tinned food and soup as worried ­shoppers stocked up.

Meanwhile, boats lay trapped in ice in Poole Harbour off Sandbanks, Dorset – one of the UK’s most exclusive areas.

Last night was the chilliest yet of the winter as the mercury fell to -12.4°C (9°F) in South Newington, Oxfordshire – colder than the Arctic and Antarctic.

Snow began to sweep the ­country and most parts were ­expected to wake this morning to a white blanket of up to 15cm (6ins). It reached London last night, and a third of today’s flights at Heathrow are expected to be cancelled ...

And one of those panic buying was me. I stocked up on the 'essentials' on Friday and Sat. LOL. It's just that I hate going out in the snow, so best be prepared.

Coldest night of the winter as temperatures plummet to -18°C

England has shivered through the coldest night of the winter after temperatures plummeted to sub-zero readings - even on the Fahrenheit scale.

Meteorologists said the temperature had fallen to -0.04F (-17.8C) in Chesham, Bucks, during the early hours of Saturday morning and was expected to plunge even lower as the icy weather continued to grip large areas of Britain.

Most of England and eastern Wales dropped to below 25F (-4C) ...

... Saturday night is also forecast to be bitterly cold in England with temperatures in London and the Midlands falling to around 21F (-6C) while milder temperatures are likely on Sunday ...

I'm really feeling this cold. Just can't seem to warm up properly, even with all the layers of clothing and/or bedding. 3 cheers for my hot water bottle.
