Snow & More Snow

There’s nothing like a little snow to stop the traffic, the undergrounds and the entire public transport system. Today when I woke up this morning, I looked out the window and the first thing I saw were silver trees and my car buried under a 1/2″ of powdery snow. In the U.S. this wouldn’t have counted for much, but here in London, all it takes is for a few minutes of snow for everything to shut down. It didn’t last long and by the afternoon it was all gone, reduced to a slushy mess on the pavement.

    In *some* parts of the US it wouldn’t be a problem – but believe me, there are cities that freak the hell out at the sign of an impending flake. Washington, DC for example simply cannot operate when it snows. And it never even snows that much.
