Look it’s simple, it’s pretty rare -down your way- so councils working on year by year budgets are not going to spend a penny on snow preparedness. However it does make it funnier when the London-centric media suddenly discover snow anew each time –Hey isn’t this the stuff we pay good money to ski on at exclusive resorts? What’s it doing here? Panic!!!!!!!!!
Now get a fucking grip, it’s nothing that millions of people in the rest of the country don’t deal with every friggin’ year, yet shockingly does not make the national based-in-London-news. So chillax, enjoy it, play in the snow. But of course wrap up warm you delicate flowers, in this weather you’ll be wanting at least a winter weight T-shirt on and waterproof resistant footwear, because, amazing fact- snow is actually frozen water (I know what some of you were thinking and no, it isn’t that, you can’t hoover it all up your nose. It’s a little bit like the ice cubes you have in drinks, no really. You’re looking for the lemons now aren’t you?) and when it gets on your shoes it gets warmer, melts and makes them wet, then your socks and it gets all soggy and cold and no fun. Also no wrapping nasty things in snowballs (stones, poo, The Evening Standard) fight fair amongst friends. But if you do see Boris Johnson (or any financier, Royalty, Politician, etc) shuffling home, plaster the mofo like Raymond Briggs drew him.
