News flash parts of United States saw snow last week. We had 2 inches in our yard and I'm not panicking, although I wasn't happy, it's to early. Our temps have been as low as 26 and high 32 in the mornings. I say be ready, but to panic is a waste of energy.

Idaho has at least 3-6 weeks of -10C to -20C every year. You just have to be prepared to survive. It gets dang cold, this is when I want to be in Arizona or some place warmer.

Whoda thunk it? Winter!

Season change does not equal man made global warming/climate change.

I thought it was only supposed to RAIN in England.

Is the jetstream on drugs?

Naw, I spent Christmas in London in the late 1980's and it snowed multiple times when I was there.

In 2003 my area had an early October snow while all the leaves were still on the trees. The power was out for more than a week. Were I to use that measure Winter would be late arriving every year since.

Weather happens.

I mean they just got hit by a tropical storm about a month ago. It is pretty crazy.

The predicted hard winter to visit the UK this year is based on new climate science that sees a correlation between solar ultraviolet emission, sun spots and the solar cycles and the strength and intensity of storms coming off the North Atlantic. look at a globe to understand what lies to the West of Britain. Places like Greenland, Iceland and Laborador. London at 52 deg North latitude would be North of the Canadian border almost as far north as Hudson's Bay. So winters can be bad in the British isles but our green blessed land can take the the blows it is one of many things that made us a tough bunch who took to the seas to rule and eventually did spreading our language, culture and religion around the globe.

When I saw your heading I excepted to see some new "Under Pants" for them to wear, to keep them warmer

Sounds like they are prepared, At least when it's that cold the snow doesn't pile up, it sure does freeze and that's another winter danger.

I have been to England before... it is so called over there, I can't believe it wouldn't snow... it would a moron's bet to say it never snows there... look at their nearby neighbors in Finland, Sweden, and Norway... I don't know what the fuss is about... it's that time of year... don't worry, as GLOBAL temperatures rise, I am sure it will be a mild winter... I mean its not like CO2 lets heat escape... and since its been trapped here for about 100 years and the CO2 is getting thicker and thicker... we're due for increased temps all around...
