It’s a funny thing snow.
I think I can say that most people in the UK long to have a snow day with sledging, snowballs, silence and some time off (such alliteration!). There is also a purity about it. As it lays its white carpet, it can get you thinking about the wonderful variety of nature, the power in the clouds, the absence of noise – it can be relaxing, cathartic, cleansing.
The cost of snow
However, snow and ice can come at quite a price. Panic buying, being stranded, road collisions, flooding, bruises or worse, being cold (especially the old) are all likely occurrences in the next few days – It’s an odd juxtaposition to rationalise. Why would you long for something for which you are so ill prepared?
Those that are prepared have sufficient food stocks, maybe change the tires on their vehicle or don’t travel unnecessarily, check on their elderly neighbours and wear appropriate clothing/footwear. Being ready for an unavoidable event makes it more bearable, enjoyable even. It doesn’t take much to plan ahead, stay within your means and reduce the risks to yourself, family and friends.
Gydeline provides a quick and simple way to prepare for the new Data Protection rules. Don’t let the ‘Snow Day” of 25th May find you unprepared and putting your organisation, your customers and suppliers at unnecessary risk.
