Eject! Eject!

Pimlico Cross Country Trail

Has the snow in England melted yet? I heard an amusing (and sort of amazing) radio report on Thursday morning about how the country had been paralyzed by six inches of snow. Boris Johnson, the mayor of London, was interviewed and was nearly breathless about how "extraordinary" it was. The report made it sound as if a moon-sized meteorite rather than a few inches of snow that had hit London.

You know I love you, all you lovely British people, but this will not do. What happened to "keep calm and carry on"?

Just now, hopping around my favorite blogs, I found this over at Unmitigated England (see the sidebar). If you've been looking for a great blog to read, with pictures just as good, do yourself a favor and click through.
