Winter looms, well actually for once winters is definitely here – temperatures of -5C and lower, ice snow and persistent cold have hit even the south of Avlaons’ sacred Isle.
Most interesting is the english approach to winter. recently its become fairly common knowledge that the englishman has sick days, holidays, bank holidays and finally snow days. A snow day is that increasingly less rare day when it snows in southern England and the chance to scive off work pretending you cant get in because of “the immense amount of snow”
The other interesting factor – controlled less by the english laziness and more by the virus is the sudden outbreak in the cold months of coughs colds flu and general illness among the rat raced commuters ferrying back and forth from the big cities.
