This country’s inability to deal with a bit of snow is astounding! Canada, Russia and most of Europe must be laughing at us right now. 50-60 years ago we used to have dumps of snow measuring in the meters, not a couple of inches and we coped fine then! What’s gone wrong? We have become a nation of soft touches, reliant on so many home comforts. And when something a bit extreme comes along we all wither and complain! This is a bit hypocritical coming from me though, I do love the central heating, and the fact that I live only minutes from work, and have always had a car from the age of 17, so I guess I have no room to talk. But at least I don’t take the weather situation for granted, like teachers!
