One of the NLP books I’m reading recommended watching this so I got it from Amazon (I do hope you all have shares in this company as I’m clearly keeping them in business) and watched it this afternoon instead of venturing out in the snow.
Britain doesn’t cope well with snow – well the South East doesn’t. Last night we had about 4″ of the white stuff! We are never really prepared and fail miserably to carry on as usual!! For some bizarre reason we have to behave as if it’s all totally surprising even when we’ve been warned about it.
To emphasise the gravity of the conditions the BBC kick all their weather reporters outside so we can understand what snow looks like and see how cold they all are. We learn at this stage that we must wrap up with coats, scarves, gloves and warm boots. Just in case we were considering going out dressed for summer!! We are also shown lots of pictures of no planes taking off at airports and no cars on the roads!! This is just in case we have missed the message.
Any maps shown also have big letters on to warn us of SNOW, ICE, COLD, FREEZING FOG.
Anyway back to the film. No doubt most of you’ve seen it already. I hadn’t. Brutal. But beautiful. To come through that and not give up hope. To have a plan for survival. Amazing. Good messages.
Made me cry. So nothing new there then!!
