Default Bloody ****** snow...

Gatwick is closed so I'm NOT on my flight to Oslo where I WON'T be meeting a-ha tonight at the book signing or checking into my paid for hotel room.

Instead I'll be up at stupid o'clock in the morning to schlepp to Stansted to try and get there in time for the gig tomorrow night.

And I don't have it bad, friends had to walk home from London last night after ALL the southbound trains were cancelled...five hours in the snow!!

Can't wait to move to Oz....*grumble*

I had to walk half way home last night cos the peak hour trains on my line were cancelled, just because it rained! I thought I'd be able to get a tram instead but not a single one came along in the time it took me to walk home.

Oh no!! Hope you managed to get there!

I can't believe this weather. And I can't believe that even when they were on the news the other day saying how prepared they were, that there's so much chaos!

I can't believe it's two years in a row now. Feeling for you.

I won't comment on SC's bad spelling.

And thank god I wasn't working yesterday as that piddly bit of rain brought Brisbane to a standstill and it would've taken me an hour and a half to walk to work. God knows how they'll cope here if they ever get a cyclone coming onshore.......So all you moaning about the snow bringing the country to an halt, things aren't that different here
