Mowing the drive

There was loads of snow last night, so this was the image that greeted me when I rocked up to school this morning. The caretakers have these brilliant machines for clearing snow from the paths, which are basically lawnmowers for snow. They have a rotating blade at the front which chews up the snow, then it's sucked up and spat out at high speed. It looks like great fun - I wonder if they'd let me have a go on one?

They don't have snowblowers in England? I'm learning a lot about a lot of countries during this international adventure. :)

Seriously, what do you do when it snows?

Well, this what happens Phoenix. In England it snows on one day every year, at which point everyone in the entire country panics, all the trains stop running, and angry residents write out-raged letters to their MPs asking why absolutely no-one was prepared for it to snow. Children are overjoyed, and rush into the streets to make snowmen. Within an hour the snow has become slush and everyone's miserable again.

So that's why we don't have snow-mowers.

Just been to Sweden, where one of the first things I noticed was the runway we were to land on imminently was covered in snow. On which we managed to stop without any difficulty at all. What the hell's wrong with old Blighty? We do suck.
