My son was delighted when his school was cancelled yesterday morning and we have all read and watched the reports of travel chaos across Britain; accidents and general misery caused by the snow.
A story that has not been covered by the major press is that the snow is BAD. Because of the cold and the dry air, the snow won’t clump together. Across Southern England, children are finding it difficult to construct snowballs and their snowmen are snow hills rather than being constructed out of the classic round balls like in storybooks.
So although most people have been secretly delighted with their days off work and waking up to see a crisp white carpet of snow outside their windows, the British weather always manages to disappoint in some way. Usually, the disappointment is endless grey and rain in the summer. This week it is badly behaved non-sticky snow.
