TAP – It starts off John Hammond talks to BBC News Channel about the science behind the recent snowy weather conditions in the UK. Why science? And why politics? Was it really ‘the heaviest snowfall in years’? They clearly wanted it to be.
TAP – I just went over to Shrewsbury webcams to check latest view. Snow on the roadside doesn’t look at all deep. Roads are clear. Funny thing was that the webcam image I downloaded fine twice on Friday won’t download now, saying wrong format. It won’t copy to iPhoto either. Someone’s blocked .jpg file images since Friday. Here’s Friday at 4.30 pm, when Britain was closed down for ‘health and safety’ reasons – according to schools. Maybe they wanted pictures of kids out snowballing. Much healthier than sitting indoors, I would agree. They might actually learn something if they quit sitting in classrooms all day from aged five onwards.
