London Crawling ...... Slow Tango in Paris




from the Beeb:



Thousands of flights and train services have been cancelled across Europe because of snow and ice, leaving many travellers stranded.

Few flights were leaving London Heathrow, Europe's busiest airport, and one third of flights were cancelled in major hubs like Paris and Frankfurt.

4. gulf oil spill?
I heard this over the weekend - that some Brits are saying it was the Gulf oil spill that has affected the jet stream.

I don't think that sounds likely ..... but what do I know.
