Well it snowed last year, the snow thread is a nice record of the event there were few problems last year. But it was not coupled with the freezing icy conditions or the length of the spell this is happening right across the Northern Hemisphere From Ireland to Korea It is freak to abnormal conditions definitely out of the ordinar
The snow thread is a good record of increased snowiness in recent years. This year has been worse, but your contention that these are freak conditions is premature - suppose we get similar or worse conditions in future years? Then it just becomes part of an expected pattern.
I expect we will get similar weather in coming years. As I say, we can be forgiven for not being prepared this year, but not next year.
All that aside, we are blessed in our island in having just about the mildest weather conditions in the whole world. The floods and snows this year are our idea of bad weather. We sometimes forget how fortunate we are. Yes we can cope. So some planes are delayed - big deal. No-one has died.
It's just weather.
