    A Coastal Winter


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter HarryWales captured the picturesque scenes after several inches of snow fell on his coastal village in Ceredigion, Wales on Friday afternoon. The UK is currently in the grip of a cold snap, which has dropped several inches of snow and caused disruption to travel plans (and school days) for thousands of people.

    The United Kingdom has been blanketed by snow today (January 18th) thanks to a front coming in from the Atlantic and coming across the blocking anticyclone over Norway which has been pummeling Europe with bitterey cold temperatures for well over a week now.Our village (as can see in these pics) is only a quarter of mile from the coast and yet, even here, it snowed to a depth of two inches here. In some parts of Wales up to a foot of snow has been recorded and even the British Prime Minister got snowed on as he made his way to the Commons to make a statement on the situation in Algeria. This type of heavy snow across the United Kingdom is quite rare with the last example being in 2010
