Oh dear. Yesterday, the BBC reported on a load of councils and engineers complaining about potholes and the like. Their story included these lines:
Throughout the cold snap, much of the public’s attention has been focused on a shortage of salt for gritting treacherous roads.
But Institution of Civil Engineers vice-president Geoff French said the thaw could bring little respite, with drivers having to cope with increasing numbers of potholes.
The implication being that the freeze / cold snap was a thing of the past.
So could someone please explain to me why the pavement outside my flat is all white for the first time in four days, and why the trains are all fubar?
Brilliant timing, guys. You’re almost as good as the weather service…
