FLOODS AGAIN!!!Doh(41 posts)
We in UK not used to -3 at anytime, if it does go below that then there going to major problems. -20! December through January is really going to hit the economy, the elderly and the National Health Service for starters.
UK heating bills are amongst the highest in Europe and we just got hit with another 10% increase.
UK infrastructure is appalling for the likes of flooding and really unusual cold spells.
We gotta start 'hugging' to keep warm!
"...Local authorities say they are prepared for a harsh winter and have taken steps to avoid a repeat of two years ago, when a lack of gritters and snowploughs caused roads and transport networks to grind to a halt.
The Local Government Association, which represents councils in England and Wales, said councils had stockpiled 1.3million tons of road salt and had ‘hundreds’ of gritters on standby."
Hope it's not needed.
The folks that provide essential services know they are relied upon and have vehicles that can make it through blizzards (fairly easy) and ice storms (harder). This is a snow state where plowing is a cottage industry and it's fairly common to see folks helping each other dig out.
