Bodmin Moor snowIt has been quite a cold week, and in Cornwall and Wales there was even some snow – see the picture to the right – a road on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall. But as ever, the British have proven to be totally incapable of coping with it. The snowfall was maximum 10cm in Corwall, but more than 1000 motorists were stranded in their cars, and help had to be airlifted to some schools were pupils were stranded. See this story from the BBC for details.

In some places they did manage to get the trucks out to grit the roads in time, but even in Wales more than 400 schools were shut – and all of this for a moderate snow fall! It is really beyond me how this country has not found ways to cope with a bit of snow…
