Reflections on British Snow

Sunday, January 20, 2013

It's snowing here (here being the south coast of England), the world is white, everything looks wonderful and the kids are all in heaven. Nothing like a roaring fire and a bowl of delicious steaming hot (low calorie!) soup. That's the positive side to British snow of course,. You may be wondering what the difference is between the usual white stuff that falls from the sky when it gets really cold, and British Snow. Well, British Snow appears to be soemthing out there on its own that transport systems (am thinking specifically of the British Train here) cannot cope with despite having (so they tell us) spent millions on the sort of sophisticated technology that keeps these things running smoothly in places like Sweden...

    It sounds like you are nice and comfy! Glad to hear that you are actually enjoying the snow. Here in the Midwest of the U.S.A., I can't say that we "enjoy" the snow because the temps are so low and the wind is cold. Fire and soup sound wonderful!

    Saw this on TV, it looked like a good bit of blowing was going on. That is more difficult to manage than when it is a windless snowfall. Even small amounts can be almost impossible to keep clear because it creates ground blizzards. Keep warm and dry.

    I know the feeling. Here in NC we have snow so infrequently that for the most part we don't have any snow plows. I moved here from Southern California (no snow whatsoever) in the fall of 1999. Jan. 2000 we all went to bed with the forecast of 2-3 inches of snow and woke up to 23 inches of the stuff! The entire city was paralyzed. Schools were closed for close to 2 weeks! I was living in a furnish condo while my house was being built and the biggest thing I had, in a second floor unit with outside stairs, was a soup spoon! It was quite an adventure!
