A fingertip of snow fell in ten hours

Winter arrived early in many parts of the UK today, with snow falling across the country, but weather experts say snowfalls were lighter than expected, and have possibly been affected by the worldwide economic and financial crisis, known chillingly as the Credit Crunch.

The cold snap bit first, as financial disasters also do, in Scotland, before sweeping down across the rest of the country, but the Met Office weather warnings proved a trifle premature, as there was only the merest dusting of snow.

Michael Hype, of the Met Office, said:

"There has been less snow than we predicted, but that could have something to do with the tremendous shortage of money at the moment. We were expecting more, but bearing in mind we weather forecasters are usually wrong, it's no surprise!"

Snow is fluffy and white.
