Yes, this really is winter. Britain has been battling with the snow for a week now, winter conditions spreading down from the north of the country and it reached even us, down here in the Southwest. Vehicles and people stranded in some parts of the country, thousands of schools closed, not counting the work days lost, even distribution of food has been affected, leaving some empty shelves in supermarkets. As always , it takes us by surprise.
One wonders how the rest of the Northern Europe do it, they just get on with their lives. Every year our government tells us that it is not worth investing in a proper snow equipment, because the snow never lasts.
As we are digging ourselves from the snow, I hope they are right, but it is only just beginning of December....
