Yes, it has snowed in the UK, and for once the country didn't grind to a halt ...

Heathrow Chaos? Guy on the BBC news who pointed out Scandanavian airports remain fully operational during months of this weather?

The duration is surely the point.
 Countries which have this sort of weather for several months of the year invest in equipment to counteract it; it makes sound economic sense for them to do so. It makes no sense for countries like the UK to spend billions on equipment that will be used for ┬ájust a couple of weeks each year. Much cheaper for us to have a few flight delays and be inconvenienced occasionally
