Shop ’til the snow drops

with 3 comments

Just to prove this blog can be topical once in a while, let’s have a news story about THE SNOW. There aren’t enough of them around at the moment.

Norwich Evening News, 29 November 2010 (story):

Snow on Dereham shop roof could fall on shoppers

A menacing looking lump of snow hanging from a shop roof in Dereham is giving shoppers cause for concern.

As they negotiate the sludge-covered High Street, townsfolk are being warned of a large accumulation of snow above their heads.

Staff at the Edinburgh Woollen Mill have put a notice on the pavement warning people to “beware – over-hanging snow on roof”.

Keep checking this website to find out if and when it drops.

Typical: just as some semblance of ‘consumer confidence’ is beginning to return to ‘the High Street’, all of those in Norwich who’ve actually got enough disposable income to be able to go shopping are about to be lost in an avalanche at Edinburgh Woollen Mill. Never in all my life.

    Certainly. Couldn’t live with myself if I failed to keep up to date on the biggest scoop of the century…
