The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning as snow and icy temperatures make driving conditions treacherous.

Abandoned vehicles in Gloucestershire hampered efforts to send gritters to remote areas, after 3in (8cm) of snow fell in three hours on Monday.

Let's not assume that snow or cold are bad. My plans for this winter? Enjoy some proper weather for the first time in years.
James Rogers, Bedford

What a beautiful warm looking sunset to come home to and watch after spending the day playing tennis outdoors with my brother

I just can't wait for the cold weather to come. It brings me so much joy. Believe it or not, my friends and I went punting in Cambridge despite the cold weather. Now I am hoping I could convince my husband to go to Ice Hotel in Sweden. Ice Hotel - perhaps the most romantic thing I could think of.

I am looking forward to my daughter seeing some real weather in December when I take her to the UK for her first visit since she was a baby. She'll be enchanted if it snows!

Snow at Christmas! I haven't seen that since I was a kid!

I was 6 years old in 1963 when the last very bad winter struck UK. Living in the north west of England at the time seemed to be like living in the Arctic. I remember the frost creeping into the house and with the coal man having great difficulty in delivering in the conditions, we got very cold indeed. My mother used to make the fire in my bedroom before I got up to go to school and my shoes and gloves would be in the bottom of the oven. My Aunt who came to stay with us for a week slipped and broke her arm and we couldn't get her to hospital because the roads were impassable. It makes me laugh when I read and hear the hype in respect of the expected cold snap so it's about time we had a real winter to help people understand just how bad it can get!
Nick Smith, Dartmouth, UK

I'm not making any special plans, apart from buying more de-icer, keeping gloves and a scarf in the car and taking the train if it snows badly - I think it is hilarious how the entire country panics if it does anything other than rain. This is likely to be the future for our winters - I hope we aren't going to panic every November!
Sarah, Doncaster, UK

I plan to stay in watching telly snuggled up with my gorgeous boyfriend this winter :) We didn't get a chance to do that last year, and hearing how cold it's going to be, I'm glad we have a place to keep warm! The weather's not too bad where I am at the moment, but it looks set to be getting colder day-by-day. Sleet heading our way tomorrow apparently! Not looking forward to walking to work in that.
Kaz Davies, Cardiff, Wales.
