The Frozen English

snow_london_682_405833aYes, it has been snowing a little bit in London (much more outside the city) and now it is pretty icy out there also. To fully enjoy it, I got off the tube a couple of stops early this morning so I could walk past Parliament (with Big Ben) and Westminster Abbey. As others freeze and bitch about the weather, I turn into a tourist! However, other than the grounds in front of each building being covered in a little bit of snow, there wasn’t much out of place. I think I should be in the Alps right now instead of the city.

The problems it causes in this unprepared-for-snow city is the biggest news item right now. This includes running out of grit, cancelled flights, bus routes being changed or some busses just not running, and a few tubes having delays (the ones that run above ground).
