We’re not very good at dealing with snow in the UK. We just don’t normally get that much of it to make it worth seriously stockpiling grit, investing in snow chains or 4x4s or otherwise being prepared for inclement weather.
It’s snowed for 18 of the last 20 days here and we had another 4 inches of snow this morning. Since I own neither a 4×4 or a team of huskies and a sled, I’m snowed in (better than being snowed out like I was after the office xmas party…) and working remotely. So I chuckled when I read an all-users email that went round work today asking about good places to snowboard after work while a chum posted on facebook that he’d just watched his neighbour ski down the lane past his house.
With another week of the white stuff forecast (the Met Office are calling it an Extreme Weather Event), I don’t think I’m going to be seeing much of the office in the next few days. Which means I’m going to miss out on more fun like the agency snowball fight this lunchtime:
