preparing for the worst

we’re notoriously rubbish at dealing with snow and icey weather in the UK. i think it’s because it takes us surprise. regularly. at the same time each year.
i suspect things aren’t going to be much better this year. at least someone’s ordered plenty of salt. unfortunately these bags are water softener salt and come in giant tablet form, which will probably cause more of an obstacle than the ice they’ll be skating on.
oh well.
