OK, this is getting embarrassing now...

First, 3 inches of snow cripples the entire London transport system and now this. Now I want to make this absolutely clear to all non-Britain based readers that this seems to sepcifically be an England problem. Not what is laughably referred to as 'Severe Weather', just the inability to cope with weather on any scale.

Actually, that's unfair. It's specifically the Southeast of england that makes Britain look ridiculous. In the Midlands, they've had several feet of snow over the last week so I can see that that would cause them serious issues - they aren't used to their rain being solid.

London had 3 inches of snow last Sunday night (1st) and the public transport system wasn't fully operational until Thursday.

I could go on, but this isn't the main problem I have. It's common knowledge that the slightest hint of weather in London makes the whole city grind to a halt, but you think we'd keep it quiet in the same way as you wouldn't mention a wheat intolerance (seriously, how pathetic an ailment is that?) in public. But no, we advertise to the world that a new ice age has dawned and BRITAIN weathers the storm! No actually what happens is this - London falls in a heap in the corner and cries like a little girl with a skinned knee, the rest of England gets ignored, everywhere else acknowledges the fact that it's WINTER!

Seriously, there are Canadians who shit more snow than fell in London last week.

Hahahahaha! Canadians who shit more snow.....that's funny!

It is a little pathetic of London. They're going to have to toughen up because this climate change means the UK will get colder and wetter. I know, oh joy, right?

You know, when there's a teeny bit of ice in Dallas, the whole city goes berzerk and loses all contact with reality.

If we get snow we just play outside. It's at least a legit excuse to dick around.
