When Snowfall Turns To Disaster

Refering to my dear's blog, United Kingdom is currently under massive snowfall. As reported from the news, "The heaviest snowfall in 18 years brought the nation to a standstill, crippling businesses, transport networks, hospitals and schools - and further hammering the recession-hit economy."

6.4 million workers were forced to stay at home by the insane weather. The roads, streets and tube were closed. Even the world's busiest terminal, Heathrow, was forced to close both its runways for several hours. The problems could get worse with more snow expected overnight and today, and the prospect of temperatures plummeting to -6C making the conditions even more icily treacherous.

dude... where's my car?

lovely plain white country...

For further reading, please go to this news. If we would ever wonder why this is happening, probably one of the many reasons would lead back to us. Global warming. We are the cause, and here is just a part of the consequences.

Despite the disaster that's hitting Britian, suddenly the Emirates Stadium looks much more beautiful when it snow...

Suddenly im reminded by this Christmas tune...
Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
