Snowmaggedon

18 Jan

Folks, I don’t want to alarm you but there’s a crisis brewing.

There’s been an amber warning for snow in England since yesterday afternoon and London has been hit with what people are calling “Snowmaggedon”.

I don’t know if you’ve heard the reports yet:

More than 3,000 schools have been closed in England and Wales as a band of heavy snow affects most of the UK – BBC News

Some stretches of motorways were closed and many A-roads impassable. There were dozens of accidents, many involving lorries that had jack-knifed in the icy conditions. Hundreds of motorists attempted to get out only to get stuck and abandon their vehicles, causing further chaos. The Guardian

 People are awash with chatter of being stuck in offices, stranded on transportation or unable to drive.

I have recorded evidence of Snowmaggedon  below but I must warn you these images are highly disturbing and urge you not to panic at the sights of these streets of London covered by so much snow.

With that warning, I say to you, go forth – albeit cautiously – and look at the pictures.

And remember, the City of London may need you, and you may have to step up in this time of crisis.
