Now those of you who have been watching the news about how badly we copy in the UK with snow, well it is time to let you into a little secret. We don't want to prepare because once every few years we get a little public holiday out of it. Kinda like christmas without the commercialism. Admittedly a lot of people I know are working from home, like myself, but you still get the feeling of something fun happening and that the entire country is sharing some great event.
So when you see the UK hunker down over a few inches of snow, remember we like it this way. (Although most climate change predictions give the UK long harsh winters when the Gulf stream eventually kicks the bucket so I suppose we should get used to it in the long term.)
