The UK is hilarious when it comes to snow. An inch, maybe two, of snow completely destabilises the capital of what used to be a massive empire – schools and unis are closed, public transport goes berserk, everyone is late etc.
‘Siberian weather’ – please. The day I left for London (around a week ago), Warsaw was hit by temperatures reaching -20. In comparison, today’s 3 degrees in London is quite warm.
Not that I wouldn’t prefer 20 degrees; I’m just saying I find the British attitude towards snow hilarious :).
On a side note, who else thinks that letting F1 cars race on ice would be epic?
Presumably it’ll be one of the race at the start of the European leg of the season. I remember there was a risk of snow once for the Friday practice sessions at Imola in 2001. And remember when some genius made the decision to hold the 2000 British GP was held in April- I bet that was chilly!
Anyone who attended Silverstone 2008 would probably remember how bloody cold the early hours of Sunday morning felt. With the wind gusting and the rain continuing to pour it was more like the middle of November than the usual summer showers!
