That's the 'suck' part I was talking about.

As you say, maybe the problem trees have been weeded out, and you'll get through ok from here on.

There's a video on youtube about the internet laughing at brits for being perturbed by a little snow.

Have you seen that picture Carruthers posted of the massive fucking snowdrifts in Cumbria?

My village got 15 inches of snow and windspeeds high enough to create snow drifts as tall as I am.

Full on blizzard conditions - a gritter truck got buried in snow in Wales - one couple spent hours buried in their car and a motorway full of people were stranded for 12 hours - heavy snow, deep drifts and 90 mph winds

I realise we have a tendency to over react to snow over here - given we don't get anywhere near as much as elsewhere and it doesn't last as long either - but the combination of the 'Beat from the East' and Storm Emma was full on.

The snow you got was a huge strain on your ability to keep calm and carry on, that baby would be a bitch anywhere. It's just get safe and wait, when subjected to that shit.

Yesterday about 5 inches of heavy wet stuff. Watching the voltmeter on my desk it was dancing all day. The power only went off once, long enough to kill the TV, microwave clock and turn on the livingroom touch lamp, but not kill my computer. I can live with that.
