How many zeroes is a squidillian?

and of course, squidillian uno is a squidillian plus one.

A squid is 8, obviously, so a squidillian should be 86 = 262144.

When a squid gets ill it must lose value then, since it becomes £6.

Oh.

Apparently "squid" is occasionally used by northeners to mean "quid", according to linguistics.SE

Beehony doesn't sound quite the same. Maybe if you'd spell it B-hony and gave the name to your inferior sibling.

The year before last we had 4.32 meters of snow.

Last year we had less than a meter of snow, so i guess it averages out.

I'm guessing that's the total amount of precipitation and not the actual height of the snow at one single point in time? Or is the effect of the Gulf stream really that large? I don't know how well we would measure up with you if it's the former. But a couple of years ago it snowed so much in one afternoon that they had to cancel all schools in Stockholm (we don't do that here normally, regardless of the amount of snowfall) and I got snowed in at uni without a way to get home.

I don't know about amount of precipitation expressed in terms of height, but I don't think we've even had a consecutive 7 days of snow since I was very young.

Maximum height was just under 2 meters, for about a month. We had a pair of months where it snowed every other day, 4-7 cm at a time.
