Prepare for meltdown

Snow has started to fall in the usually sunny town of Wigan.
This means that everything in the UK will now fall apart, trains will be cancelled (indeed the signals failed at Wigan north-western station this morning). Roads will be as treacherous as a politician, those looking to jet off to sunnier climes will find that their holiday plans are ripped to shreds.
The warnings have been there for years though. I remember as far back as the 70’s receiving Christmas cards that clearly featured snow scenes on them. I mean what other signs did people need?
Also, the fact that we are in winter might just have had a little suggestion that we might be in for weather that is a little chillier than in autumn.
The tedious thing is though, is that we have about 2mm on snow fall. It’s not like we’ve had arctic conditions or even Scandinavian temperatures.
I thought we British were supposed to ‘keep calm and carry on’. Instead we seem to ‘panic and grind to a halt’.

Greetings! I appreciate a fine Tweed and my hobbies include drinking heavily and acting. However I do not mix the two.
