Piggin Heck! I am sat in my office in Surrey on 4th April 2013 at 10:44am (UK time, not forum time) watching the snow fall. What sort of flippin' Spring is this?
I love being right. If only it happened more often...

I hear the same complaints everywhere around here... but a 'White Easter' is a quite regular weather phenomenon, it only didn't happen in the past couple of years, which now irritates the folks...

Pieter is right, believe it or not. I have read that the warm Gulf Stream current has shifted course somewhat, which affects the jet stream, keeping it at lower latitudes than would be normal for this time, which keeps the arctic air mass flowing further down also.

If you got 1,5 hours to spare check this exiting as equally fascinating documentary/movie about how everything on this planet is connected and interacting:

...there is no such thing as a local event/phenomenon...

Some of the stuff sure smells like methane or is it sulfur ... ;-)
