at least you had snow down Cornwall we got drizzle and rock hard hail that even the sturdiest of tanks will become Swiss cheese to the mighty iron ice .... i hate living in Cornwall because of this only reason ...no snow
It could be worse. At least you get to STAY home. Working in the news when there's severe snow, usually results in a call from the boss along the lines of: "I don't care if you've gotta TUNNEL yer way here. We gotta report this!!"
The snow here SUCKS! And the strange thing is is that the southern part of the US gets snow, but not that much in the middlewest except a few states in that part (not including mine) -_- We also had one warm day...
I'm not really getting this, I think. I have several news apps on my phone and read and refresh them all several times daily, and I've heard this and that about this so called 'snow disaster' you've been having. I can't be 100% sure that the pictures that come with the articles are directly related, but in every picture I've seen, there's barely enough snow to cover the ground. That's not a snow day, that's a heavy frost at most. I can barely see through my kitchen window for all the snow and that just warrants a;
True. There's never enough snow to cover the ground because it's normally always raining in England. But whether it settles or not, EVERYTHING grounds to a halt- schools are closed, trains are all cancelled, people from any form of office work are told they can leave immediately before the motorways get closed, health and safety goes mad with its ice warnings.
We never believe it's actually going to snow because it happens so rarely and even more rarely settles. But because of that, no-one prepares and it becomes and instant excuse for everyone to stay at home and the unlucky ones that don't have to face all of the closed down roads, traffic jams from ice warnings, cancelled trains, delayed buses.... everything goes to shit, basically, from an already-melted 'snow day'.
And despite all that, and being a university student- I was still like an excited schoolchild as soon as I saw it starting to get heavier. Used it as motivation to tidy my room, tidied it and..... it was gone. Still snowing, but none to be seen British weather; ALWAYS disappointing...
