Ever noticed how, whenever it snows, you get a whole lot of people whingeing on the BBC News forums about how the country has ground to a standstill? Just as predictable, some American pops up and says something like this:

As for the snow…some of you guys should come experience a Chicago winter. :D

or this:

I live in Minneapolis and currently it is -32 C outside and it was even colder yesterday.

Happens every time. It’s as predictable as clockwork.
