Snow crisis!

This photo was taken on New Year's Day.
They're not in school today, because Minister Batt O'Keeffe decided to Take Some Action on Friday and ordered all the schools to be closed until Thursday. If the heavy snow that had been predicted actually had shown up on Sunday, then perhaps he would have been applauded for his foresight and even hailed as a great leader, or at least as someone with the minimum competence for the job. But as I look out the window at a slightly damp January day without any snow or ice whatsoever, the minister instead seems rather a twat.
I didn't vote for them, you know. No matter how bad or stupid things get, there's always that consolation: it wasn't my fault!
