Today's Metro Momento

The right kind of snow

After the recent
snow/london transport problems, I thought it was only a matter of time before there was a "Disgusted of Dulwich" letter in Metro. So this morning we had:

"A quick note to London Underground: the white fluffy stuff currently falling from the sky is called snow. It is not a rain of frogs, The Winged Victory of Samothrace, or Rodan the flying monster. Furthermore it is the right kind of snow (ie the kind that doesn't fall underground), so let's have the trains running properly, eh?

And if you are really stuck, give the Swedish transport authorities a call and ask them how they manage to run a seamless, delay-free service through ice, snow and sub-zero temperatures.
