# The UK's inability to deal with snow & ice always amazes me. Granted, we don't have major problems often enough to justify huge investment in infrastructure, but there has to be some middle ground.
5 hours to get home 1 - because almost the entire rail network for the area was taken out by the weather - just seems crazy.
And I was lucky!
I feel sorry for those stuck for hours while some, frustrated by the delays, decided to force the doors on their trains and walk down the tracks resulting in the power being turned off.
- it would have been considerably longer had my wife not driven to get me half way ↩
