Snow disruption & record temperatures in UK…

UK-snow-2010-01-07-noon

Snowstorms and freezing temperatures are disrupting travel across the UK for a fifth day as airports cancel flights and train operators limit services.

The earliest widespread snowfall in the U.K. since 1993 has frozen over roads, disrupting traffic, with icy weather likely to last until at least Dec. 8th. The U.K.’s Met office warned of widespread icy roads across Scotland’s Highlands today and forecast temperatures to drop as low as minus 20 degrees Celsius in Scotland this morning and as low as minus 5 degrees Celsius in London and the southeast of England.

The area worst affected in the U.K. was the North with Yorkshire and Northumberland bearing the brunt. A spokesman for the Automobile Association said the rescue service responded to 18,000 calls on Dec. 1, and had 100,000 in the past six days. We are now in our 7th day without any Mail service so delivery of Qsl Cards has a serious delay.

Temperature at my address is currently -12.6 Degrees Celsius, almost breaking my record of -13.7 Celsius in 2002.

06th December 2010 -13.9 Celsius
