Let it snow

Yesterday, we had, according to Boris Johnson 'Exceptional circumstances' with regards to the snow. I quote 'The right snow just the wrong quantity'

I woke up yesterday morning in London to about 5 inches of snow. I got up, showered and dressed and as I was doing so they announced on the radio that 'All London bus services had been suspended' Now I knew the trains would be up the creek but I have never ever seen the buses suspended after snow. NEVER! It was purely because the bus services were suspended that I couldn't get to work. I had the routes worked out in my head but couldn't get a bus.

Then later on in the afternoon, there was Boris telling the BBC that he thought he had done a brilliant job considering the exceptional circumstances. Well Boris, you didn't. Not even the war stopped London buses.

Oh and while I am on my high horse, how about a special mention to Camden council who shut the local parks for safety reasons!! Brilliant. Lets hope they have gritted the pavements because if the ones outside today are anything to go by they are far more dangerous than a walk in a snowy park.

P.S Can anyone please tell me why the councils no longer grit pavements?

The council here don't even grit some of the roads let alone the pavements! A bit of snow and everything grinds to a halt. :(
