A friend in London received an email from her friend in Southend, England. It read as follows:
“As forecast yesterday, it started snowing - not a lot! Just a sprinkle but it was snow. There was a thunderstorm too, just as I was thinking about going to Fuchsia Club! Needless to say, I didn't go. What they didn't forecast was the rather sharp frost as these snaps demonstrate...”
If this was written locally, it would probably have read more like “*$#&%!^# hell, these weather dudes just NEVER get it right!” ‘snaps’ = Brit for ‘pics’.
