Snowy Snow Snow!

South-East England has seen the worst snow for 18 years. Yes, Seaford Head Community College actually closed today (hope you all had a chance to enjoy sledging, snowball fights, making snow angels, building snowmen...).

Some of Britain's technology was pushed to its limits this morning. Travel websites crashed, mobile phone networks buckled due to the high volume of calls and text messages. Interesting article from the BBC here.

Twitter user Ben Marsh formed the '#uksnow' group and collected resposnes from Twitter users documenting how much snow had fallen in their region. All the tweets were then plotted on a Google map of the UK.

Happy Snow Day!
