Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.
Not so employees of our own dear Royal Mail. Now I don't have a copy of The Economist to read at lunch time. Even worse, a couple of inches of snow and the roads are chaos, with people stranded on the motorways whence they are apparently being rescued by the Army, and unable to perform the simplest of maneouvres on the roads. What a nightmare. We did build a snowman, though.
