Snow paralyses Britain

Even though I have been living in this country for over 10 years, it still amazes me that a little bit of rain/snow/hail/kittens/leaves can severely disrupt the infrastructure. Today there has been what, 10 cm snow, and there are no buses in London, the tube is mostly shut down and all train companies have disrupted or no services.

What happened to British Engineering and why do the French/Germans/Dutch manage to keep going when its snowing?

Oh well. Me Johnny Foreigner traipsed for 45 mins through London this morning to make it to my place of work. Sod the tube.

Tomorrow I might take my skis.
