It's snowing again. I mentioned before Christmas that it was snowing, but the snow melted and everthing was back to "normal" for about a week. But now, the whole of Britain is covered in snow!
A rather cool picture taken from BBC news. Frozen Britain seen from above. This image was taken by Nasa's Terra satellite on 7 January 2010 shows the UK deep in the clutches of the current cold snap.
