 ただ、BBCくんが伝えているところによりますと、英国だけは、♪い~ぬはよろこびにわかけまわる〜♪、なんだそうな。

  欧州寒波で英国にも雪 人も犬も馬も喜び

欧州が大寒波に襲われている。寒気は最も南で地中海沿岸まで到達し、27日までに広い範囲で積雪が見られた。

 英国では「東からの獣(the Beast from the East)」とあだ名された今回の寒気は、欧州一帯に凍てつく風をもたらし、気温は場所によって零下30度にまで下がった。

 
欧州各地で死者も出ているが、英国では珍しいほどの雪に大喜びする姿も見られた。

 イギリス本島は、北緯49度から59度まで。

 首都のロンドンは北緯51度。

 東京は北緯36度。

 日本の最北端である択捉島が北緯45度。

 極寒の地で世界的に名高いイルクーツクが北緯52度。

 緯度だけなら、イギリスは相当寒い地域であって全然線おかしくないんですが、やっぱり、メキシコ湾暖流の影響が大きいのでしょう。

 冬季の気温は東京と差して変わりありません。

 結果として雪は滅多に降らないようで、たま〜に振ると、子供も犬も、大喜び。

 でもねぇ、実態はと言うと・・・・。

 結構、深刻なようですよ。

 東京に積もった雪の方が圧倒的に多いと思うんですけど。

 日本人も、ジョン・ブル流ポジティブ・シンキングを、時に応じては、見習ってみる必要がありますね。
