Daffodils on Hampstead Heath, this morning.
John Lee, a forecaster with MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said: 'Looking at the radar there's an area of fairly light sleet and snow over the South East at the moment."I am astonished that you should call this an extremity of cold. In Boston, as you know, this would pass without remark. I am garbed for Boston." --Daniel Waterhouse, from Neal Stephenson's The System of the World
