Based on reactions on social media, folks in England react much like residents on this side of the Atlantic.

IT'S SNOWING IN LONDON. THE CITY IS HYSTERICAL. PANIC BUY MILK. PANIC BUY HUSKIES. PANIC BUY SNOW BOOZE. THE CITY IS DOOMED.

Enough snow fell in parts of England to cover the ground, video posted by the Evening Standard of London showed. As much as two inches of snow was anticipated in spots.

With cold weather expected to linger for the next month, bookies are now posting betting odds for the chances of a white Christmas in the U.K.
