    The first snow since early 2004 has just arrived in Lowestoft, the UK's most eastern town! :D

    I went out the back to grab a Pepsi and turned the security light on to check if the cats were waiting to come in, and ta-daaaa! It was snowing :D As I opened the back door to grab a couple of pics with my camera phone it started getting heavier.

    The pics are crap but hey, proof :D

    It's started snowing again here now :D Again it's not laying very well though, had a couple of strong rain showers earlier today so the ground is still wet.

    Lowestoft seems to have a different "snow climate" to the rest of eastern Britain, picking up localised snowfalls and missing out on big scale ones! At least that's what the Lowestoft statistics in Weather Log suggest.

    For instance, during the 8-9 November 2001 east-coast snow event, Lowestoft didn't even report snow falling, while in a somewhat less potent cold snap in November 1999, they had snow cover on the 18th.
