4 days until Christmas...fingers crossed our flight to Boston isn't cancelled this week. We had 5 inches of snow on Saturday, and London is still reeling in shock. I thought it was pretty normal for the underground to be out of order the day it snowed (every single one of the 12 lines were down the entire day). However, what I didnt expect was the insanity at Heathrow Airport. Things are manic, with flights still running at 1/3 capacity. And it is now Tuesday night...aparently things should be back to normal on Thursday which is the day we fly. It is a bit of mystery how flights are still behind. My favorite new fact is that Helsinki Airport hasn't been closed since 2003. In 2003 they had to close for 30 minutes, and then everything was up and going again. So why does it take Heathrow 4 days to recover from one 5 inch snow fall??
At least we got to build a snowman.
