The ic­ing on the lake

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR VIEWS -

Eski­mos have more than 50 words for snow while we in Britain have to make do with two – to­tal and chaos!

Spring was sup­posed to have sprung but in­stead the so-called Beast From The East and his part­ner in crime Storm Emma brought snow, ice and, yes, to­tal chaos.

Even in Peter­bor­ough the no-snow cap­i­tal of Eng­land the white stuff lay deep and crisp and even.

Schools shut (of course), lots of peo­ple were “work­ing from home’’ and sud­denly those driv­ing 4x4s were al­most pop­u­lar.

Even hell froze over – well Whit­tle­sey Washes did (I’m skat­ing on thin ice!).

We didn’t cope as well with the snow as Cana­di­ans and Scan­dana­vians do. But you should see them if it’s a bit driz­zly.
