U.K. under snow from space...

A friend mentioned this must-see picture of the U.K. covered in snow, taken from a satellite above the Earth, and I couldn't resist showcasing it.

I've always thought the shape of mainland Britain looked amazing (just like Italy's unique boot shape), but it looks even more dramatic as a winter wonderland.

The last two times we've visited home we've experienced snow and flown back over the white patchwork countryside.

It's so unusual to see Britain so wintery white and what would be even more bizarre would be seeing L.A. under a blanket of snow.

Apparently even though there's no sign of snow here, it sounds like this week will be cold and wet in sympathy of the U.K.'s wintery weather.

Umbrellas at the ready...
