Some of the surfboarders are very sexy, until they open their mouth at least.

I remember two proper snowfalls in my childhood and the whole f**king country stopped for a week. We are hardly equipped for going down snowy mountains when we can hardly get a bus down frosty roads.
 
I'm near Chicago for work at the moment. 8 inches of snow in a night last week. Snow plows and grit out all night and the roads were perfect in the morning. Not a bother to any of them and the temperature was minus 17 the other evening.
 
They wouldn't believe me when I told them that the whole place shuts down if we get an inch of snow.

It doesn't make economic sense for us to spend billions of euro preparing for an event that lasts at most 24-48hrs at any given time over the winter.

Chicago on the other hand can't afford not to invest or else the whole of the city would shut down for months on end due to their extremely harsh winters.

Agreed. I am always surprised by how badly London is prepared for it. Then again, that town is disrupted by leaves.

A large part of the panic in Ireland is caused by alarmists who post on Facebook or decide to ring in radio stations. Thus spreading the panic amongst fellow alarmists.

It is definitely funnier over here. They get snow in London every year and every year the first inch brings pandemonium.
The recent snowfall saw a People may wonder how from BBC News outside a snow-free Heathrow talking about the mass disruption and the loss of money to airlines.
People may wonder how the mess that is Brexit happened, but the English can't plan for snow. Every morning London, this financial capital, is delayed by leaves. f**king leaves.
 
The longer I live here the more confused I am by how they ruled the world for as long as they did.

Leaves on train lines is actually a technically difficult and expensive challenge to deal with. Fact is, trains are fast because it's easy to run a metal wheel on a metal rail. It is, compared to a car tire on a tarmac road, low friction. If the friction decreases further, however, you get serious issues with wheels slipping and with skidding. Neither are good when you've a fifty ton train. It is an issue all round the world. Wet, crushed leaves on a train line cause a loss of grip in absolute spades.

The problem is the fact that they know they are coming.Autumn in England is when leaves fall, yet nobody bothers to do anything about them until they cause a problem, and even then at a push.
My point was deliberately hyperbolic, bit it doesn't take away from the bad planning and lack of organisation that takes place.

Him: a winter Olympian, flying through the air, twisting three or four times, somersaulting too, landing on a blade about a millimeter wide, in time with the music... but wobbling a tiny bit, finishing fourth and missing out on his dreams after years of hard work.

Me, sitting on the sofa, hoodie, tracksuit, slippers, drinking tea: "Pfft. Loser".
