I think it's just been over a year since snow has hit Britain. The last time it snowed in Britain was in 2010 and I wasn't even in the country at the time. I had a lucky escape. And if memory serves me right, at that time students were protesting against tuition fees around Parliament.
Some people love snow and some people hate it. I actually LOVE snow but I don't like walking in it. It's too slippery, and when it starts melting there's a lot of slush around.
