Snow Day!

The Snow Day - with "Let it Snow" by Frank Sinatra

Isn't it amazing how the UK sees a scrap of snow and EVERYONE is excited about it and the country comes to a standstill? OK mostly England, Wales & Ireland, the Scots have pretty much got it down. All the schools in my area have shut, people haven't made it into work (myself included) and the silly rubbish men haven't come to collect my rubbish. How dare they! Yet in countries such as Canada, for a good example, they deal with this kind of thing x1000 and they seem to manage alright! I mean come on, our roads weren't even gritted. They KNEW this cold front would be coming in from Russia yet we still weren't prepared for it. In London, ALL the buses were stopped this morning. Thats something like 8000 buses. Yeah, seriously. There were also disruptions on the London Underground.......hello?? Its under.ground. ?!?!

Still, it looks pretty and everything, and means I didn't have to go to work this morning, even though I still have to work from home. It literally hasn't stopped snowing all day. That is so unusual for here. I made the above video out of boredom and just as a reminder I guess? See if you can spot my new car (the black one) and the crazy snowman my neighbours just made.

We only actually got about 3 inches, but elsewhere in the country they got up to 13 inches. Its nothing isn't it! We're just not prepared for it.

I can't wait til Spring either...
