Right. In the British Isles we are positioned in Northern Europe. It's Winter. Shock Horror! It's snowing. Cries of "Extreme weather". Am I missing something? To me "extreme weather" is Hurricanes, Flash floods etc THIS IS NORMAL! How pathetic are we that the whole country grinds to a halt because a bit of frozen water has settled? I know it hasn't dumped properly for a while but whatever happened to contingency planning? Remember the stranded traffic on the m1 a few years back? Why do we seem incapable of dealing with this natural (and forcast) phenonenom? The rest of Europe must be pissing their pants at us. Anyone elses Sh1t getting gripped?
