Why can’t the UK cope with snow?

We had snow last night. It settled. Today trains were delayed and people couldn’t get to work because of the roads being block. Being the sceptic that I am, I don’t think a lot of people tried. But even so, how is it that only 3-4 inches of snow can cause so much disruption?!

I am not a massive fan of snow when I have to go places and do things. So, I was in a grump last night despite Sam’a beat efforts to passify me. I did, however, deal with it this morning by donning some extra layers and leaving on foot to go and get the train. In actual fact I was quite lucky – the 7:03 which I decided not to aim for (wasn’t ready) was delayed until 21 so I got that instead of having to wait for the 25 😀

We got a bit more festive at work today too. We put up the Christmas decs and had some Christmas pud we won in a hamper earlier this year. It was goooooood! Sadly our team mate Ollie was leaving the company today, so it was quite a sad affair, except that we had some dramas close to leaving so I almost forgot! Oops.

I must say though, I am looking forward to my real starting on Wednesday. I have reached my limit with work and even rowing training. The water based stuff is good fun at the moment. Land training is such a drain though, probably because it needs the focus of mind I am slowly losing!
