Expat I think that we will have to agree to disagree. You still pick examples where they get loads of snow ZRH, MUC, FRA and even AMS gets more than London, to justify the investment you are seeking. Now you say “some extra” what is some extra, a snow plough?
Business gets disrupted by the weather, I was unable to get to my office for three days due to the weather and a colleague has been trying to get to a meeting in Oxford since just before Christmas and the three times it has been cancelled due to snow, fourth time lucky perhaps. Maybe I have made a mistake mentioning that as I am sure someone will start going on about road gritting and salt availability!!
