Stop moaning about the weather!

There were two stories that caught my eye on the local news last night. One was about farmers throwing away milk because the dairy tankers were unable to get up their snow covered farm tracks and the other story was how much extra the cold spell will add to this winter's heating bills.

 Can't farmers organize themselves to clear a bit of snow? They are farmers, FFS. They have tractors. In Scotland the local farmers are used and paid by the local authority to clear local roads, not just their own tracks. Instead the farmer last night simply moaned that his (private) road hadn't been cleared and gritted by the council.

As for paying higher bills. Use some of the money that you saved over the last few years when we had extremely mild winters. It's swings and roundabouts. Stop moaning, for fuck's sake.
