Of course this paralyis has allowed the Great British Public to once again spout their usual ill informed nonsense.
"Its disgusting, I've just come back from 3 years in Boston and....."
"I've been on Holiday in Austria and....."
Now the point is how often do we see weather ? I reckon the last time we had anything like this amount of snow was 1991. The thing is we have to make a decision do we want to spend a fortune preparing for events that are once in 20 years? The answer is no! Boston and Austria get massive amounts of snow every year they have to prepare.
And of course the schools are closed, so parents complain that when they were at school the schools were always open. Well yeah they were, but there is a reason for that, everyone lived near where they worked. Teachers could walk to work. Now we all tend to live miles from work its not so easy.
Get over it people!
