A snow sweepstake (no prize though) for the date and time of the first snow in the UK reported on Mumsnet in Winter 2011-2012. By the way I don't think I am being unreasonable but it will be lost if we put it chat. I am going for 10pm Nov 23rd

will snow in the UK well before Nov 23rd. Scottish Mountains often see snow in October.

Lowland snow in Southern England - rare before New Year. Last year was exceptionally early. End of November and .... Bang.

It would be just ... extraordinary..... if we were to have a repeat so early this year.

I love snow and can't get enough of it in the winter. The crisp cold and shiny snow even eliminates the SAD i get in most dull , cloudy , mild winters we often get.

Where's OhYouBadKitten, she's bound to know if it's meant to be very snowy this year or not.

I was hoping to see the Kitten, she is always right. In her absence I will go for October 27th, 3pm for the UK.

Last year in Devon it was December so I'll go for the 18th Dec here, 11am (that's just for my own amusement).

Any time at which it will cause the maximum amount of inconvenience to maximum number of people... So, I'd say from 6am on Friday 23 December.
