+10 for the headline, submitter.

Got a hearty guffaw from me. :-D

It's largely dependent on your snow removal infrastructure.  Europe outside of the mountains generally isn't very good, south of the Mason-Dixon line in the USA generally isn't very good.  A place like Michigan is good.
 
2013-03-18 03:35:05 PM  
Meh.  My area is slated to get at least 6 to 10" tonight through tomorrow, and that's not a big snowfall.  More like "average".

We've gotten a couple feet before.  *THAT* does shut things down.

Oh, and I've recorded temps of around -30o C at the house.  I go out in a t-shirt and shorts to get the mail on -15 days.

Even Michigan is really only decent north of the thumb. They are utterly incompetent about snow (and most everything else) in the Detroit area.

Every year I am reminded that I live in the only country in the world that is surprised that it gets hot during the summer and cold in the winter - a country so incompetent at preparing for changes in the weather that not only is six inches of snow actually a national crisis, but during the summer we sometimes have water shortages during periods of torrential rain.

To be fair to those south of the mason dixon line, they really don't get snow, they get not-so-quite frozen rain that pools into ice and drivers freak out when the the car slides.

6 inches up in the northern states is like "Honey, i'm going to be a half hour later getting home from work; Stupid white crap again."

So... what is that? Like 400 degrees or so below real zero?

Maybe the UK could attach plows to all of those unused tractors sitting in barns this time of year.  But would that work?  We need someone to investigate.

Half of the battle is just staying the hell out of it.

I've had bosses that if any snow was going to fall they would tell us to work from home.  Others would wait at least an hour or two before a state of emergency was called by the Governor before he would let us leave.

I can tell you from experience that when I worked from home I put in WAY more hours and did much more work than I would have when I was in the office.

This explains a lot, especially why the French surrender so often. They have very little to prove and can get by on the size of their wangs alone. Also, this is why the Irish like to pick fights and why the rest of Europe seems so conquer-happy, to make up for their small peckers. This is also why you don't see far-flung regions of the world that speak Hungarian as their colonial language -- big dicks, so nothing to prove to anyone.

Define recently.  In the last 3 months, we've had 23 days where the minimum temp was lower than -12 C.

Yesterday, as I recall, the temp was around -10 C in the morning.

Depending on units of measure, france and hungary are either just slightly above average (a little above 6" for france, about 6.5" for hungary) or extremely extremely small.

Ha, showed them last year!

"We would need a full summer of rain to avoid drought restrictions"

Well they got it and had to shut up...

Water shortage in england? We are next to Wales for gods sake!

2 weeks ago I drove home through that storm that hit the Midwest. At night. There were maybe 2-3 snowplows on the road. I think they were waiting for it to stop. The 3 hour trip took 5. But I made it. There was some white knuckle driving but never did it look like this. Granted there were less of us idiots on the road but I got myself behind a semi and followed its tracks.

I'm in Germany for work right now but I did notice that ALL news broadcasts about snow are identical. All of them.

Show a car in the ditch. Show a car with the tires spinning. Interview a guy wearing a hat. Show some police cars. Show a wrecked Semi. Talk to some people in a hat. Show some people stuck in traffic. Interview one of them. Show an airport. Interview someone in an airport.

Not the exact news bit I watched but 50% of it.

To be honest it`s neither. It`s the width of the end. Girth if you like.

Only if you believe the Daily Mail. Generally everything goes on exactly as normal, it is just you get a lot if pants wetting media coverage because it is cheaper than actually investigating real problems, and it makes a break from all the celebrity gossip.

ko_kyi: I Ate Shergar: during the summer we sometimes have water shortages during periods of torrential rain.

Why is that?  Runoff contamination into the water system?


It is probably referring to last year - there was about 9 months of moderate to severe drought in various places around the UK, and then a couple of weeks of rain and people expected everything to be fine again (it carried on raining, so the issues finally sorted themselves and the various water usage restrictions were raised over time).
