Over the last week, we've had more snow sweeping over the country than we've had in two decades, and it's even taken me by surprise. When I was a wee lad, I remember going sledging and playing around in the snow; now I am 20, I just look outside, shake my head, and think, "why us?".
The snow has crippled the transport networks, as well as the London transport networks. Buses haven't been out in service, the London Underground (even though it's underground, 60% of the network is overground) has been mostly suspended and the technology networks have buckled as a result.
Mobile network operators also suffered blows when blackouts in my area were reported, as well as increased traffic on the networks bringing more blackouts in others. 73% more calls and 21% more text messages were reported by T-Mobile, as more of the country slowed down to a halt.
Microsoft has its home in Seattle, and many employees were sent home because of the transport issues. Some of my friends were stuck in airports not able to get home, or to other locations where their customers worked. From reports, the city of Seattle had more snow than it's ever had in recent years, and we feel your pain as you have very similar weather to us.
