LOL SNOW

Forget the credit crunch, the environment, corruption in the House of Lords and badly punctuated protesters outside oil refineries: IT'S SNOWING!

Yes, it's snowing, which means that all national news broadcasts are dominated by pictures of children having snowball fights and crazy estimates from GCSE-level economists about how the weather has cost Xmillion pounds in lost production.

Then the polar bear will mess him up! Nasty creatures they are. Very tough. My father was at one time posted to Churchill Manitoba ( http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=58.745407,-94.152832&spn=4.185514,9.887695&z=7) and because he was Military Police, he got called to chase the bears. Usually they would just drive up in the jeep and honk the horn, but often they had to fire off a weapon. It was not odd to see a bear wandering down the "main street" heading toward the dump.
