Brits wake up to snow

Per BBC, southeast England was plummeted by snow flurries that forecasters are calling "the most severe" in six years. The commute has been difficult and some schools are shutting down this morning in the London area.

The trending topic #uksnow is now No. 1 on Twitter, as tweets are flying in all across affected areas. Here's a sample.
