I did a little rewrite of this loved carol to show how the UK is affected by bad weather even though it’s expected!
UK’s Bad Weather
In the bleak midwinter not a train will run
Motorways are carparks,it is no fun.
Snow is falling, snow on snow
But we are never ready you know.
The is gas running short as is electricity
The whole country grinds to a halt when we hit minus C.
I’ve not seen any gritters with their flashing light
Icy rains now falling it will freeze again tonight.
In the bleak midwinter eastern winds do blow
We all need to check our old folks, care for them to show.
Sadly we are never ready however expected
The shops are stripped of staples everything affected
Okay moan over, people have pulled together, volunteers trekked to blocked Motorways to bring them hot drinks and food. Carers and NHS workers struggle into work. We all keep an eye on our elderly family members and neighbours. We are British we will survive 💜
