Re: storm and floods in GB - is everyone ok?
Still hard to justify tens if not hundreds of millions of pounds to protect/prepare against perhaps what amounts to a a couple of weeks worth of snow. After all you would have to provide it nationwide every year just in case.
Would it not be better to use that money on upgrading flood defenses? Which could be rolled out of the course of several years. So for example in 2013 BEdfordshire and Herefordshire have money spend on them and in 2014 Lancashire and Lanarkshire etc..
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
