⚠️ Severe Snow Warning ⚠️

08 Feb 2024 | ~1 minute read

So last night it was all over the news that there were going to be "Severe Snow Storms" across North Wales today. In true British fashion, the entire country lost its shit.

Schools are closed.
No one is going to the office.
The economy has ground to a halt.
Send help!

Even Apple Weather got in on the action...

It's now around 09:30 in the morning and this is what my back garden looks like:

No snow here...

Not really "heavy snow" is it? Come on, Britain. We can do better. Do we really have to utterly lose our collective shit as soon as there's a bit of inclement weather? Put your big coat on, don your hat & gloves, and get out there!

I'm sure the Canadians, or anyone from the Nordic parts of the world, would find this rather amusing.

We need to get a grip.

🤦‍♂️

Update 12:45

OK, the "severe snow" has been and gone. My kids' school, that was originally open, is now closed and I'm having to juggle them at home, as well as builders, and a number of meetings.

Here's how bad the snow was:

Ridiculous.
