British people care about the weather more than they care about anything else in the world.
It is a stereotype, but it is not very far from the truth.
Which is what makes www.uksnowmap.com such a success!
It is a website that just scans Twitter, and based on what people are tweeting about the snow, puts it on a map. It is live, it is crowd-sourced, and it is the best source of information you can get just because it is so up-to-date.
All you have to do is tweet, put the hashtag #uksnow in it, put the first part of your post code in (e.g. SL1, E6, M12, etc), and give the snow a rating out of 10 ( e.g. 0/10 for none, 10/10 for heavy!).
Check it out, tweet about it, and tweet to it. Another beautiful example of why Twitter is amazing, and how nothing works better than crowd-sourcing!
