After a brief spell of quite mild weather for the time of year, Britain has been deluged with snow. I don't know how other countries with more severe weather conditions than ours (say, Russia, for instance) manage to cope with such things, but here in my homeland it seems that even with only a bit of snow, things begin to grind to a big, crunching halt. People have trouble getting about, with road, rail and air traffic all affected. Schools close. Businesses lose money. People stock up on supplies for fear that their food will suddenly run out. Football matches, meetings and other gatherings are all cancelled. Yes, folks, it's snowmageddon!
And, if you're wondering what snowmageddon looks like, here is a little picture of round my way for your delectation.
Yes, I know it's not exactly Siberia, but you'd think, by our reaction to all this, that it was.
So, let's close all schools, cancel all meetings, buy extra dog food so our pets don't suddenly expire, get stuck in huge traffic jams, and stock up on candles just in case all the lights go out. After all, it's snowmageddon!
