You know, I have been discussing the same scenerio witha friend of mine for quite sometime now, and that is if your city was turned into a warzone(meaning everyone is out for themselves) how and what would you do to survive on the streets?
Well, personally, I dont think that there is enough of everythingto go around in the city to last people more than a week without people starting to commit crimes against one another(and thats stretching the time frame).

This isn't an example of what to do in "Sit X", it is a shining example of how incompetant we are as a country at dealing with a bit of snow!
20 years ago, this was a normal winter yet things plodded on. Even now, mainland europe gets snow like this every winter yet manages to cope. We get 6 inches of snow and the whole damned country grinds to a halt, mainly due to a complet lack of readiness by the authorities. The roads weren't gritted this morning, the airports were caught off guard, the trains can't run... Anyone would think this was the Day after Tomrrow!

Im in Scotland and we missed most of it on the west coast. I was watching GMTV this morning and the words to describe this 6 inches of snow blew me away.
Words like white out, catastrophe, crisis, and most used, complete shutdown !
One reporter on the scene was talking about the most diabolical weather in 2 decades...someone emailed in reminding her that she was standing in half an inch of snow, so, she moved to another area of the town where she was. When she came back with her next report she emphasised that earlier she was not in the worst of it and now was. She pointed to her feet and said "look". She was now in 2 inches of snow.
Its a joke, nearly 700 schools closed ! They dont know they are born.
Never mind the authorities. If this is how Jo Public copes with 6 inches of snow, his chances in a sit X are non-existent.

I really wonder what will happen if the half a meter or so forecast for the North of England actually materialises. I hope everyone is ready for a couple of days in the house.
