Liverpool has always been lucky when it comes to weather. What the rest of the country gets Liverpool doesn't get it as bad. The first picture is the morning after the snow came thick and cold. OK maybe not as thick as the rest of the country but thick for Liverpool.
Weather wise Liverpool never gets what the rest of the country gets. What you see is as bad as it gets and would we have it any other way no.
The picture you can see if you look out of the window you can see the snow much later in the same day.
