Interesting application of crowdsourcing by the Met Office: they're asking UK residents to submit their own snow measurements, and have put together a map with the results.

As a result I can tell that talismancer, who lives about 45 miles along the coast from me, should have a good foot or so of snow to enjoy. Lucky git.

Nope, it's as clear as a bell here.

We suspect the one singular 45cm report from north portslade is someone emptying their deepfreezer, rather than anything that came from the heavens

I did wonder if that report was actually from a bored student feeding the site a load of baloney. That's the trouble with crowdsourcing: it's far too easy to troll.
