    Nope.
    Doing lots of long distance travelling over Christmas and New Year, and when I'm at home I'd prefer not to risk broken limbs due to the combination of snow/ice and an idiot dog.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    No, only because I have to drive to work at 7pm. Otherwise I would like it.
    Yep...still at it, working out how to retire early........ Going to have to rethink that scenario as have been screwed over by the company. A work in progress.

    Having lived in France and Germany where we had snow for up to 6 months of the year, the snow we get in this country is a major disappointment and huge inconvenience - grey sludge and compacted ice, delays and disruption, panic buying and even more moaning about the weather than usual!!!

    Yes please, not had real snow since 1962

    This is the Eastbourne-Brighton road, in sunny Sussex. 1963.

    Not as much as i used to as having fun in the snow is frowned upon for us adults. I dont want any snow or any other kind of bad weather on the 23rd because i am going somewhere.

    I wouldn't mind getting my Himalayan snow boots out.




    I bought them a couple of years ago and (typical!) we've had mild winters ever since.

    Nope, no snow thank you. I'm driving on Christmas Day (twenty miles each way, to my sister's). I'd prefer a mild day, dry if possible, but I don't mind a bit of rain. Whether I'll get that is another matter though...

    No. We have various family driving over. I'd much prefer their journeys to be safer and easier.

    Yes please
    6 feet deep, with frozen pipes and power cuts just like when I was little

    No vehicles moving and everyone has to stay in their own homes and make do with what they have including making their own entertainment until the power gets back on.

    I just love the thought of a candlelit christmas.

    Don't want a white Christmas day as I want to be able to see my parents. However a white Boxing Day would be brilliant as I wouldn't have to endure a day at the in-laws
