I do like the complacency about all the snow. When our roads are as white as that, people get themselves stuck and abandon their vehicles all over the place. Can you imagine our fellow Brits driving in that and with a trailer

You probably heard the expression "Snow is only frozen water" before, so it should be okay for watersport fanatics

I know what you mean, got a couple of friends in the UK who tell me the same story, they always refer to the one and only snowplow in the UK, stationed somewhere in north Scotland
