Couple that with living in Edinburgh and you apparently have a lot of time on your hands.

Somehow I think I`d rather be snowed in with Laura than Hahayousuk.... even, if all we did was make a huge footprint in the backyard.

Anyway.. we (the UK) are crap at winter. Gives us plenty to moan about though. Where I live in the SW its been pretty mild, even Dartmoor was passable (just).

+10 in Canada? - has the fecking gulf stream kicked over already? Hard to explain to the doubters how cold a bit of global warming could be for the UK.

I`m with LionHeart, doesn`t anyone just fock anymore? "Snowed in" couple and the best thing he can think of to kill time is to take an hour and make a footprint in the snow out back? Is the ol` lady a heifer or what?

Sad.

LOL, Ollie.

Ollie, please wheel out "Lord Christopher Mockton" again as an authority on Climate Change. It was hilarious the first time around, let`s relive the memories. Please, be my guest. It will enliven the thread.

Meh, just a word in edgeways if I may...

I`m from the UK (Northern Ireland to be precise), and recently emigrated to Canada about 11 months ago. Loving it by the way.

But when Canadians/northern US citizens say "this isn`t snowed in!", believe me, in the UK it is. In the UK we have no concept of switching your summer tyres to snow tyres > studded tyres > tyres with chains on (depending on how far north you live) in the winter. Nor do we have fleets of snow-ploughs waiting in the wings to clear the snow. The costs of maintaining such fleets when they may get utilised once every five years just doesn`t make sense.

The UK is ill-equipped to deal with even light snowfall. Sure, the last two winters have been unusually bad (it was -25 in parts of Scotland two nights ago), but that is very unusual in the UK.

p.s. it`s currently +10C (that`s +50F for those still using old-speak) here in northern Canada as I type. Climate change anyone?

Maybe, but that would make her more wrong. It isn`t a land mass and the population of the whole thing would have been quite a bit more than 1.9M even after the great death.

Her basic point is right, though - we do have a very high population density on this island now.

[quote]Sorry what I mean is did it [the snow] have any adverse effects ?[/quote]

Hell yes. Turnover at my workplace was halved for a week. Public transport was uncertain, a few parts of the city were risky to drive in because few people around here can drive well on a hilly road covered in compacted snow and ice. Plenty of cars sliding down hills.

With maybe 3 inches of snow. It`s the same most years. Bloody stupid, really.

Um snowed in? That`s like...a couple inches of snow. Try opening your door to see literally a wall of snow covering the entire doorway. Yay London, ON snowstorm of...eh...2000 and something...I forget when it was lol--must be getting old.

In the 14th century the UK didn`t exist. The population of England was probably ~5 million at the start of the 14th century. It was an apocalyptic century in England. Famine, plague, PLAGUE.

What brought it home to me was looking at a county map from the late 13th century and map of the same county in the mid 14th century. About two thirds of the towns and villages disappeared. No need for a town when everyone in it is dead.

For the past three days it was snowing non-stop in London Ontario. There is actually FIVE feet of snow on my lawn. Not in the driveway though because I shoveled the hell out of it.

[quote]valid point. Apologies to the minority of Americans who don`t fit your countries stereotypical idiocy.

There are idiots everywhere. The USA has a lot of people, so it has a lot of idiots. It also has a lot of TV, so the idiots get a lot of coverage. 1000 ordinary people doing ordinary things won`t go on TV, but 1 idiot doing something stupid will.

I see nothing to indicate that there`s a larger proportion of idiots in the USA than elsewhere.

Have you had much snow up there? I`m near the middle of England and we`ve had a couple of inches that lasted a few days. It`s stunningly cold, though. -12C at night, which is bizarre for this area.

He`s not in England. He`s in Scotland. It`s next door, but it`s not the same place.

But yes, a couple of inches of snow is "snowed in" for most of Britain. People generally stay indoors most of the time if there`s any snow on the ground, transport is disrupted, etc. Really, I`m not joking. It happens almost every year and it`s like it`s a huge surprise that nobody expected.

Some parts of Britain get feet of snow, especially northern Scotland, but it`s mostly a couple of inches.

"How did he not leave footprints in the snow when making it?"

You can see footprints along the outside at the right where the foliage is. Based on the car in the picture he should be able to step from one indentation to the other, and there could easily be footprints in the indented parts. The exception is the middle, which I am not sure how he did that.

How is this `snowed in`? There`s barely any depth to that snow.

@Oblivia
He went out into his backyard and made an imprint in the snow after it had snowed. Ever hear of making a snow angel? Same concept...

Yes, creating realistic evidence that you were located near the sudden appearance of a gigantic humanoid and survived by mere yards is quite lame indeed.
