OMG Snow

Fecking news is being snowed in with stories of Islands off the west coast of Scotland being cut off and losing power due to the adverse weather.

“Unfortunately small numbers of customers will be off overnight in isolated rural areas. These are areas that we have still been unable to reach by road.”  (Of course you can’t reach Arran by road…IT’S A FUCKING ISLAND!)

Lets check one of the key words there, “isolated”

i·so·lat·ed
Adjective
Far away from other places, buildings, or people; remote.
Having minimal contact or little in common with others.
Synonyms
secluded – separate – lonely – solitary – remote

Wtf is their problem!? If you choose to live on a fucking tiny island, then you reserve yourself to deal with the inevitability that power can, and will, go out. It’s a damn luxury that they get power in the first place!
