UK Snow

Via Will Gater I saw this amazing image of the UK taken by NASA's Terra satellite today. The image shows almost the entire country sporting a layer of snow.

On Twitter people have been using the hash tag #uksnow to provide real time snowfall updates (Citizen Meteorology) and Web Developer Ben Marsh has created a real time map to show where the snow is falling as well as people's photos. It has been fascinating to watch the snow head over from Liverpool and Warrington to Manchester in real time and then see it start falling outside my own window.
