'Snow fun in March

Not quite as adverse as it could have been

This unseasonably cold weather and, I think, even the snow was forecast for the latter part of this week. And as Bradley
mentioned, we had a bit of snow last night, which so far hasn't led to much more than a Piccadilly Line train getting stuck at Sudbury Hill. So not much in the way of the "adverse weather conditions" being the phrase of today on the "London Underground Delays" (sorry) Real Time Travel News webpage. The Metropolitan Line seems the only one really effected by snow.

I bet Bob Crow and the boys are muttering in slight frustration about suspending the strike planned for today. A Tube strike coupled with snow would have been great for their cause.

There's nothing like seeing queues and queues of fed up Londoners rubbing their hands together and huddled up at bus-stops, to make the papers report of "Travel Chaos with Tube Strike" or "Cold Commuters Cause a Commotion in Cockfosters" or if you're reading The Daily Mail - "Asylum Seekers Wreck London's Orderly Queues" and "Farringdon's Five Defraud the Memory of Diana".
