It's cold outside...

Got our first winter snow today. And half of the UK seems to shut down!

It seems really strange that Britian is much warmer and milder than it was 40 years ago, yet the trains and transport system can no longer cope with even a 2 inch snowfall. Almost every tube line that has overland sections had either delays or was suspended (due to 'adverse weather conditions' on some lines!), mainline trains were stopped, and countless crashes on roads that hadn't been gritted (or maybe just drivers who just ignore the ice and carry on driving at full speed..?).
