Snowed a bit on the way in from Heathslow, and again in Greenwich as we headed down to Ebbsfleet.

Got to Paris, and it's snowing like a mother out - temp is just hovering around freezing, so it's not really piling up on the streets. Lots of grit trucks out, but even so, I'm glad I'm within walking distance of the office!

Been snowing since early this morning in Paris, starting to wonder if I'm going to make it back to the UK as planned on Saturday morning!

Wife and I are talking about wandering down that way, I was stuck up in LaDefense for meetings yesterday, so way wrong side of town for the tower.

Hmm, may have more of a chance than I expected! :(

Eurostar has cancelled all services on Saturday morning 19 December before 12 noon because of severe weather conditions. People who have booked a journey for Saturday morning are advised not to travel. The rest of the day and into Sunday Eurostar services will be severely disrupted as well. We strongly recommend that travellers whose journey is not essential change their tickets for travel on a later date or have their tickets refunded. Eurostar services should be back to normal on Monday.

Well, at least the wifey and I were not with the 2,000 folks trapped on the 5 Eurostars that died last night.

I can think of worse places to be trapped than Paris at Christmas time - wifes already out shopping at the fetes noel ;-)

We travelled back from Yorkshire this morning (not in the SLK) and it was snowing quite well on the M62/M60, but pretty well still clear when we got home around lunchtime.

I don't know if any of you have come across THIS website - it gives you real time traffic updates for motorways and main roads, and if you click the correct buttons - weather report, camera shots and even what the matrix signs are displaying.
