THE snow that fell on Friday and over the weekend has not brought the feared widespread disruption.
Instead, people took the chance to have some fun - and take some photographs.
Daniel and Emily Haar of Misbourne Road, Hillingdon, spent hours creating this igloo.
"They spent most of Saturday building it and then had friends round to play in it on Sunday," said their mother, Lisa.
The snow, which began to fall at about 8.30am on Friday, reached a maximum depth of about 6cm, according to the Met Office.
Light snow continued to fall steadily on Saturday but main roads were clear and the covering in many side streets was breaking up under the action of car tyres.
Temperatures got high enough at the weekend to prevent slushy roads becoming ice rinks and dangerously slippery.
Hillingdon Council said it spread 270 tonnes of grit over the weekend and is continuing working to keep the roads clear.
By this morning (Monday) the picture looked like this:
