Hello to all in the frozen climes of Europe, how are things in your neck of the woods with this (very) cold snap? Hope that you and yours are all managing to keep warm. Imagine how it would be at Gandale at the moment, Brrrr.

My brother sent me a picture of his street... All bothered by the half inch of snow and my nephew and niece got two days off school for the snow... We just got three inches of snow and everyone was pissed off because they didn't get a snow day... 6" was forecast...

Britain has become such wimps...








:bait:

I don't know about wimps mate. I read somewhere that it was so cold that Romanians had been seen with their hands in their own pockets instead of someone elses :lol: :lol:

Not so much wimps, more apathetic. As a nation, we absolutely, completely and utterly fail to deal with the snow in any meaningful way, thereby allowing a situation that can be dealt with turn into a catastrophe. And we've done it every winter for ever! This is the country that created the NHS, V Force, the Open University, the English Electric Lightning, DPM and Black Sabbath! And yet the whole of Britain is snowed in because it allows itself to be, and it's a source of absolute national embarrassment. The sad thing is, it doesn't need to be. I remember living in Germany, where it was the law to clear the snow away from the public footpath in front of your house. The deal was, you do the paths, and the council (or equivalent over there) does the roads. An excellent forward thinking model of state and individual co-operation, and then the whole country can just shrug off the weather and get on with it.
Chances of that happening over here? L'engleterre? Nul points!

Hi,

To put things into perspective please see attached.

I live in a village approx 5 miles North of Lincoln City and 3 miles East of Scampton Camp.

Luckily I make sure we have plenty of RATS etc in store for suchlike weather because the local CO-OP is a mere 700 Yards away.

Both me and the dragon have mobility trubs so walking is deffo not on.

Please see attached photographs of the weather conditions when the dragon "tried" to get to the CO-OP, of course I'd told her not to go but wimmin eh?


Regards, Mick.D

Mick:

I think it's fair to say that you and your missus are the exceptions that prove the rule. Schoolkids don't have your problems and neither should their teachers so your amount of snow shouldn't be closing schools. My brother lives in Rochester which had no more than an inch of snow. The schools there should be embarrassed.

Hi Ginge,

The problem is that most Teachers and Pupils travel some distance in the Rural arears to school.

Also we know how organised HMG are, admitidly the Army. Navy and RAF have been giving aid to the civil power plus local civies giving food and hot drink to trapped drivers, but ... and because I'm heavily effected by medication cant make the rest of my point.

Sorry mate.

Regards Mick D.

Hey, no problem Mick... The rural areas are different... I remember on a couple of occasions dropping bales of hay into farmers fields to feed their cattle because the rural roads that are 6' below field level are full of snow while there's barely anything on the fields and my squadron did at least two "pregnant woman rescues" but let's be fair, Rochester is far from being way out in the sticks but they still closed the schools for two days... If some kids coming from out of town couldn't make it then so be it but the school could have carried on with all the kids that could get there...

You are being made to pay for your own extermination..( Slowly , Slowly catchee Monkie ).and too fucking thick to realise it . Weather control has been going on for decades ..Now its in its final phase ..its not experimental any more ..its a weapon that is being used world wide . Agenda 21. And you stupid fucks whinge about The Nhs and Unions and bullshit like that . Just how many of you have researched Zionist policys and Satanism..You know ..the wholesale destruction of humanity and this planet....the deception and agendas of the fucking fucks that you voted for . So go on ..go outside ..grab some snow ..and put it in a naked flame.. then tell me that it dripped and melted..and if it did..yup its non -nucleated snow ..go on..try it .and if you are puzzled that it didnt drip and melt..just turned black..then my friends I will tell you why. And how and to what purpose.....None of you will like it when you have your eyes opened to that ..Fuck you may even start to understand that Gm foods , Vaccinations and microwave comms are all interlinked and actively eradicating mankind ...Welcome to the REAL BEAST...Satan , and his disciples..your leaders and your betters. Nice that I didnt do a rant ..Just cold facts :lol:

Ian: Do you really think that "THEY" can bring down the civilized world with half a fucking inch of snow???

Actually, knowing the useless cunts we have become as a society, you might have a point... :wink:
