Just before this thread gets the snip, I had a couple of friends visit Antarctica on holiday recently. Why? Because they wanted to see the penguins :Z

What exactly do people expect in winter?

I'm sure anyone else in NE England will agree with me, we are just putting our jumpers on!!

Slight drop of snow in my area, and the schools closed due to teachers poor attendance, and the council suspended refuse collection.All to do with Health and Safety, so we are informed.

I have friends who live in Canada, who last visited England when the railways closed down, due to the wrong type of snow on the tracks. They just couldn't believe it.I wonder how we managed years ago, has I still recall the days when the bus home required a little passenger help when it became stuck. Still got home with a more merrier feeling.

I grew up in Canada and despite vast dumpings of snow every winter, whole chunks of the country did not shut down as happens here. It drives me bananas that a sprinkling of snow in central London causes almost total paralysis of the city. Don't they watch the weather forecasts?

Trouble is we don't like paying for equipment that may not be used for several winters so if we have a bad winter its not there.

due to adverse weather conditions.
