Snow joke

So much nonsense talked about the snow and Britain's inability to cope with it: "third world country" "other countries don't have this problem etc" and in London people saying, "The tube runs underground! Why is it closed?!" - Of course, many reasons why the tube was so affected, one of the most obvious being, of course, how do the tube drivers get to work if they can't travel because other transports is down - as this tube driver wrote here: Why London closes when there is snow

Secondly, if the government did spend millions waiting for the once-every-18-years occassion when snow did cause one/two days of problems, there would be outrage that they were wasting tax payers money that could be spent elsewhere, on the off chance one day may mean no buses could run.

I like the snow.
