That looks like more than a dusting David-:)
Sheri, in Canada (or Northern Michigan) that’s a passing snow shower. Can’t wait for the Brits’ reaction to this post when they get up tomorrow.
Eh, up in BC, this looks like the first day of spring. Right, Dave?
LOL No, really, I laughed out loud. I live in Canada!!
They’re just not as well prepared for it as you are in the USA.
What a warm and kind soul you are Sylvia…(too kind)
Well, I am English after all.
I didn’t know that. Well that accounts for your sympathy vote.
Things can always be worse, so we Canadians won’t complain..
This is hilarious! I have an Irish friend who immigrated to Canada through St. John’s NFLD in November way back in the 40′s and she thought the “marble walls” we had lining the roads were beautiful.
Now, that, is funny!
*Laughs* It is unfortunately true that Britain collapses when it gets a mild brushing of snow. It is great for children because all the schools close, then they have a great time building snowmen and sliding on sledges down the hills.
This time the West of Britain (Wales and Cornwall) got the snow bad, even winning a rare red snow alert. In the East such as in my town of Colchester we had it easy, but the paralysis it caused was embarrassing.
The British can cope with floods but a bit of snow we all head back to bed. Funnily enough thats what all the squirrels in Colchester Castle Park did, vanished to their nests.
Smiling as I was reading your comment. Who doesn’t love snow days!
That happens when you’re not used to it.
LAUGHING!!! LOVE IT!!!
Yes, it was funny. I did too!
Too funny!! Love it
Now, that’s “a lot” of snow!! Good grief!!
Laughing. A white out!
No point denying it, we’re pathetic.
As in so many other fields. we lack the ability to do things on a grand scale, unlike our enviable brothers and sisters in the US. I am not going to, out of sheer pique, list out the items I have in mind, like the vehicles you drive, the buckets of food you consume or the budget deficits you run.
But it’s a fair cop. I sat on a plane on Friday at Heathrow for 2 hours between landing and getting to the gate, then 30 mins wait for some steps and 20 mins wait for a bus to the terminal. All handled with quiet acceptance by those on board.
Looking at it logically, we get this “heavy stuff” for a few days per year: how much infrastrucutre would you invest in if it were your decision?
Laughing. And, agreeing with your rhetorical question to close.
I have lived in both BC and Alberta and those pictures do not come close to what we experience many winters. The challenge always is we are usually ready for it, but other parts of the world are not.
Yes, Ivon, on point.
LOL … yup. Cold and snow .. makes spring and summer that much more wonderful!
Yes, it certainly does Laurie. Spring is a wonderful new beginning each year.
That picture of Canada probably explains why we use the net so much compared to some countries
I’m sure that it’s Keith.
My son had a four-hour trip back from London on Sunday after attending a weekend course. the journey should have taken two hours and, at one point, he was stuck on a platform in a blizzard and was told they’d cancelled all trains for the rest of the evening, while a coach sat outside the station waiting for everyone to ride in it instead. Nobody told the offloaded train passengers the coach was there, but fortunately someone went storming out of the station in a temper and found the damn thing.
Laughing. So funny!
Shoot. I wonder how do people manage to stay alive?
