This is, a London-centric article. A lot of places in the UK had snow today, yet remained fairly normal, with only schools closing in some places.

This article is focusing on the issues of London and the South East, and presenting it as if it was the only place that had heavy snowfalls. It is quite important to show that the rest of the country that did have snowfalls did in fact, just get on with it, and managed to run transport services, despite the weather.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 86.132.232.235 (talkcontribs)

I'd go further and say the whole article is back-page stuff. "Snow falls in winter" is hardly headline-worthy. --128.243.253.111 00:45, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Snow, to this extent, is rare in the UK 82.69.90.226 18:48, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
