Weather: Scotland vs. Canada in Snow Storms

The BBC makes the Scotland's recent snow sound like it is a big deal. They even put up a picture gallery of it.When I saw that, I sent it to a co-worker. We get this stuffevery week for 4 months every year. A heavy snow storm is when youcannot take the car out of the garage and have to shovel the walkway in order for the garage door to open, and when four family members take a whole day in shifts clearing it!And we have it easy here in Southern Ontario, when you see the Maritimes getting pummeled every three days with a heavystorm (by Canadian standards).No wonder readers of the BBC from around the world wrote in saying : "You call that snow? We will tell you what snow is!"
