The UK doesn't get much snow. We're at a higher latitude than the States, apart from Alaska, but the gulf stream keeps us at drizzle and clouds instead of snowstorms. So we're not very good at dealing with snow.
The BBC reports 'heavy snow' in northern Scotland - 'up to 10 cm'. That's four inches.
I don't think I've ever seen four inches of snow in my life!
