Stunning Picture of a Stunning Circumstance!

Just wow!

The caption on the BBC News website states: “This striking image taken by Nasa’s Terra satellite on 7 January shows the UK deep in the clutches of the current cold snap.”

This photograph is of something I do not ever remember happening in the twenty-plus years I lived in the UK growing up. I don’t know if this is symptomatic of global warming, global cooling or what, but it’s definitely something!

The UK maybe small compared to the US or Canada, but isn’t it unusual for the entire country to experience exactly the same weather like this? I hope my family and friends back in Britain are keeping toasty warm (or at least having fun in the snow!!) Weather like this is a great excuse for hot chocolate, hot buttered rum and a few other cold weather treats!
