Live blog: Snow (Regularly updated throughout the day)

Following the example of The Guardian newspaper which is obviously all news-ed out with the Wikileaks revelations and has got in on the act after almost 1 centimetre of snow has caused chaos in London’s central London I have decided to set up a live blog of the snow affecting me.

    Great stuff, any chance of more analysis though, what colour is the snow? is it cold or hot?

  2. Tony D says:

    But there are no *pictures*. It doesn’t *count* if there aren’t any *pictures*. Preferably sent in by random members of the public from mobile phones with rubbishy cameras, and in two classes – cutesy ones with small children abusing each other with piles of the stuff, or serious ones of cars hitting things. (If the picture is being submitted to The Sun, the aftermath of the intersection of the two classes is a surefire hit and is guaranteed the front page this side of a nuclear war, and even then it’s not certain.)

    “Only kidding”!!!

    How can we take this blog seriously ever again?

  6. Korhomme says:

    Proof! We need proof! You have none. It’s all fiction. Makebelieve. Wish fulfillment.

  7. James says:

    I’ve heard love+G is in fact in Barbados and his “snow” stories are just fiction.

    Lightweights, those Guardian writers. Lightweights.

    PS I don’t expect many of them live in Surrey (far too right wing), so they may be surprised to know that though we have no more snow, we still have treacherous pavements & side roads.
