A third consecutive harsh winter in the UK [O a treia iarnă aspră consecutivă în UK]

Although I only saw (and obviously photographed) little ‘patches’ of snow in the UK (here and here), 2010/2011 is the third consecutive harsh winter in Great Britain.

Thanking Natalia Chechina (more pics taken by her) again for these two images, here’s how true British snow looks – laid on the Edinburgh Castle.

The hardly credible Met Office – see here, here, here, here or here why – announces a White Christmas this year.

Anyway, instead of a blessing (for the British children who would rather have video games as presents, thus spend holidays indoors), the snow could be a curse for retailers.

There was a nice joke about the credibility of the Met Office:

A mathematician asked his friend, who was working at the Met Office:
"What is the percentage of accurate weather predictions ?"

And his friend says: "Well, it's about 40%"

To which the mathematician replies: "Then why not say the opposite ?"
