London is Crippled

I'm sure everyone remembers the 25 cm snowstorms followed by the 5-10 cm "flurries" from this past month (we can go as far back as last year). Well, London is crippled by a 8 inches (around 20 cm) of snow. (See article: "Braced for another eight inches of snow")

C'mon 20 cm? I know you don't get snow much but if I can drive 40 mins to work in a small Japanese car with no snow tires - you can take on some friggin' snow.
