What would we do if it were snowing every winter?

woman stuck in snowWhat is with this country? The second busiest airport in the country is closed, trains are stranded and thousands of people can’t get out of their houses. All because of a relatively small amount of snow.

What on earth would it be like if there was another mini iceage like they had in the 1800s when the Thames was regularly frozen?

Ironically, it would probably be a whole lot easier going. The reason for many of the problems this year is simply that the UK as a whole simply isn’t prepared for really cold weather. Were it to be a regular feature of our climate then more money would be thrown at the problem and many of the difficulties that we’re currently experiencing would go away. After all, colder countries don’t have all these issues.
