If I have seen further than others, it is by treading on the toes of giants
That's not a blizzard, you can see the other end of the street. Ok, I'm from Edinburgh, so have a slightly more robust expectation of the weather, but even so, have caption writers really forgotten what the weather used to be like a mere 10 or 20 years ago?
> you can see the other end > of the streetHeck, you can see the street!And besides, the umbrellas are not inside out, and the people holding onto them are not flying through the air.
Well ..."Eurostar chief executive Richard Brown said the trains broke down because of the contrast between the cold temperatures and a "warm tunnel"."This is better than the first report I saw here in the US, at cnn.com. They said the trains got stuck in the tunnel because they lost traction due to the contrast between the cold outside and warm inside.That just sounded ... weird.
In 1986, which was so cold that it exposed English plumbing for the farce that it is**, Eli got snowed out in York.**they run the waste pipes outside the houses, which, when it freezes, makes for interesting back ups.
Interesting, I've never known a soil pipe to freeze. Also, for London that is a blizzard, in February's snow, I knew someone from London who helped two 13 year-olds make their first snowman.Anyway, the trains have been running through my local tunnel no problem.
If you think that report's bad, wait until you read stuff about today's snow in London. ;)
