After checking on the internet London Gatwick airport's weather for several days and worrying too much about our travel to England with two young children we arrived without delays to our destinations. I have to say it was great weather, only if you do not have to travel from one place to another.
Lots of snow fell next day and it was magical! Still there after two days. Great fun for kids and for me too. I can hear under my boots noises of snow and fresh air to breathe. What else you can ask after living for nine yers in Lisbon, which hardly sees snow, only once in fifty years time. I experienced snow in Lisbon I have to admit. It was fantastic for young and old, but in many places it did not reach the ground, just melted on the air.
