Ooh, there is snow.
Some schools announced this morning, that they will be closed tomorrow – how do they know? Other schools are open. Apparently Five thousand schools were closed today. Ooh… Interesting…
The weather is different in different parts of the country. Some schools within a mile of each other are differently open: one is closed, while another is open. Some heads insist on opening, making a special effort. Others close if they think significant numbers of children won’t be there, perhaps because it affects their absence records, which in turn affects their league table position. It’s complicated. Questions are being asked.
An ambulance man said, on the telly, that there had been a number of sledge-related incidents, and advised people to wrap up warm, despite not being a weatherman or weather woman. Seems that stating the sodding obvious in a serious way is within the purview of all who appear on the gogglebox.
Snow threat receding, we are told – how on earth do the Scandinavians cope?
Given that lots of schools are shut, and a lot of children are sledging, we might expect a few incidents.
No broken bones, because, if there had been, we would have been told about the ‘snow shock near-death horror’ by a meejah desperate for something more than:
“School shut, kids have fun in snow.”
Some schools are open, some schools are closed. Maybe some questions should be asked.
School shut, kids have fun in snow.
Ffs: just go chuck some.
