Pleasing. I wasn't expecting it to be settled this quickly.

Of the 9 official white Christmas sites, snow fell on Christmas Day at Glasgow, Edinburgh and Birmingham. Snow did not fall at London, Liverpool, Aberdeen, Manchester, Cardiff and Belfast. Issued by the Meteorological Office at 0011 on Sat 26 Dec 2009.

Very Silly imo that the market is decided by snowfall on the day (which only a couple of beardies in meteorogical labs might be aware of) rather than settled snow on the ground, as the latter would be anyones definition of a White Christmas (which itself is a layman's term rather than a scientific one).

The Irony is that bookies only probably brought in the snowfall on the day rule as there was probably hardly any interest in the market years ago , as you just couldn't envisage a genuine White Christmas (settled snow) but it was more likely that a few snowflakes might fall to earth on the otherwise bare pavements .

It snowed briefly between midnight and 1am in Birmingham I believe...

Can be all rain and just 1 single snowflake in all that rain makes it a white Christmas - that's the rules....

a foot of snow in some eastern parts by Saturday - no lie!
