  1. Not wanting to be pedantic (shock), but isn’t this really the first time we’ve been able to see a total white-out before?

    I think the last ‘big freeze’ – 1981 (notable because I arrived in the UK from the tropics as a baby in the middle of it) had a similar effect – and was as prolonged as this freeze is. There just wasn’t a satellite taking photos of it back then…

    Obviously, my case would be improved with evidence, but I can’t find any – apart from this: http://www.inthenews.co.uk/news/uk/cold-spell-worst-since-1981-says-met-office-$1351352.htm
