Hahaha, that sheep that is staring at the camera creeped me out and made me laugh at the same time. Its pretty heavy snow here in my town. I hate snow, it just causes chaos on the roads and its really hard trying to get anywhere. I have a job where its just not an option to say I cant get in, so its no good for me.

We've been getting a light dusting of snow here (Southern Scotland) for the last few days now. Just took a look at Facebook not too long ago and noticed people were posting snow pics. Took a look out my window and holy fuck there's a lot of snow all of a sudden.

I wish it snowed in Florida. It does snow here but rarely and it never builds.

Tony Darkgrave hey why don't you write a letter to UK government detailing your extensive knowledge of how everything works and help us get on our feet quicker every year when it snows.

Or maybe stop being such a fucking idiot

I'm back home and there was only snow here on Friday so everything was just ice by the time I got back. I'm actually glad it's not so bad here as the amount of snow in London is chaos, especially with having a second wave of heavy snow down there. At least I got back home just fine tonight.

It snowed in my area of the UK for about 12 hours today. This evening I got a text message from my boss. I opened it up with eager excitement to find out it was only to inform me that my work IS open tomorrow despite the Arctic conditions. Once again Britain has ground to a halt under the weight of the snow except for my part. Hmph, no snow day for me :P

oh please JFK and LAX are far worse than Heathrow. but JFK does its best to get it fixed but its huge size kind of hinders it. if you ever been to JFK you would know its WAAAAAAAY BIG and thats lots of snow.

also thought it might be news worthy.

Actually, having a smaller airport/runway and being a busier place would hinder you more. Going to be trickier to move planes about to remove snow and such.

No you didn't. You posted that link for one reason only and that was to dig further at this countries handling of snow.

Because millenia ago Neptune god of the sea was angered by the ancient inhabitants of what was to become England. In his rage he cursed the entire country to have some form or rain all the time. But Neptune was killed in a war with the gods and as a result he couldn't undo the curse. So it will stay like that til the end of time.

I dunno usually JFK (from what my uncle in NYC) says is that they plow a few air strips for incoming planes delay until they get enough for planes that go out (in schedule order) then they do that until all of the air lanes are plowed of snow and gritted.

of course you could be right I don't know because I don't care about airports really seeing as I prefer to drive where I go (though airport food is great)

I was but then I remembered my New years reslution to be nicer which i'm trying REAAALLY hard to do.

Heathrow only has 2 runways remember. And it manages more aircraft movement. Whenever snow happened around London, Heathrow is always severely hit because of how busy the airport just generally is. Its been 3 days of snow on and off near enough and because Heathrow runs at near enough full capacity they just don't have the room to reschedule the delayed flights. They can't just slot them in at Heathrow or they'll be catching up for an age.

of course you could be right I don't know because I don't care about airports really seeing as I prefer to drive where I go (though airport food is great)

You don't care about them but you have the opinion that Heathrow officials aren't doing the best job they can compared to US airport officials though???

Who are you lying to.

of course I was just saying what my uncle told me how JFK does it. I know that heathrow is a completely different situation.

Never said that. though I should have clarified that I don't know or care about airports and their snow removal in general. been to JFK stuck for 4 days because of the storm in 08 wouldn't believe how bitchy I got.

its not hard with snow and airports, you delay flights for 6 hours, you plow it, you put down Ice Melt with a mix of gravel, start the flights back up

its not hard I am surprised neither US or UK has figured this out its freaking 2013. though the scandinavian countries have it down hmmm...

Who are you lying to.

myself I know. it really conflicts with my cynical and pessimistic nature.but at least im trying and thats (what I guess) counts,

I sent you a nice picture pm. I am trying to start small and work up.

I do remember that and I appreciated it quite a lot.

You just need to stop with the whole US v UK thing. All it does is get peoples backs up. This thread was just about snow here and you had to chip in about how rubbish we apparently are at dealing with it without considering that we don't actually have the proper equipment for dealing with large amounts of snow because we actually don't get large amounts of snow near enough to warrant the cost of such things, be it privately or publicly (government).
