Arg! No matter where you are in the world, I’m sure you’ve heard about the UK and it’s wonderful snow overreaction? Seriously, a little bit of snow and the country grinds to a halt.
I used to love snow, and still it has it’s beauty. When I got snowed in on holiday in New York in 2003 it was so great. New York snow is the prettiest snow I’ve ever seen. But UK snow sucks. It means that I can’t get places, and things are cancelled and it puts my other half in a bad mood because it makes the roads so dangerous. That’s mainly due to the council not gritting early enough, and idiotic, cocky, drivers on the roads.
It’s snowing outside as I write this. Tomorrow morning I am due to catch a train to London and spend the morning in Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland. Then I’m spending the evening at the 02 areana watching Paul McCartney. I’m really excited about the whole day, but I’m really worried about the travel and the cold. Urgh! Weather!
Snow can be wonderful, but as the song says, only when you’ve got “no place to go”.
