Roflmao, all over the news:
"GB has been hit by a HEAVY snow storm! It's about 5cm snow and schools are closed and busses and planes is completely stopped ..." And that's when I burst out in laughter!
I live in middle sweden and they dont close school for 40cm snow. Infact, they dont close school for anything, barely not even bomb threats
But this .. Ridicilous but I know, you aint equipped for winter but about damn time to do it?
Global warming? FU, global cooldown sounds more plausible!
EDIT: I drove my car in swedish winter with summer tires on. Couldn't be arsed and I couldnt afford to get winter tires.
If you know how to drive in snow, it's not a big problem. Just be easy and NEVER let the car completely stop, then you are most likely to get stuck ^^
