4. Not one person wearing a mask in a nation that has the currently has the worst death rate.

And yet the story is about a cat on a leash. 100,000 people have died in the UK. A nation with one fifth of the population of America

5. they're also outside

and doing, from appearances, a fairly decent job of "distancing" -- unlike for instance, a pub, a cafe, a church, the tube -- or a sporting event.
(also hard to catch a snowflake on your tongue, whilst wearing a mask)

Maybe give it a rest -- for 10-20 seconds?

9. Not good enough for a country one-fifth the population of USA and up to 1800 people dying a day.

They are in lockdown. They need to wake the fuck up.

7. When we had snow round where I live recently...

It was very noticeable that people didn't go out to play in the stuff, stayed working from home and because people weren't going out the roads stayed bad for longer and not many people were clearing the snow off their own drives, pavements and roads either.

8. I guess one benefit of being outside in cold weather is that you can see your breath.

If your condensation's wafting near or onto a passerby, well, there you have it, graphically illustrated.

I'd be happier if people went belt and braces and wore masks as well as socially distancing outside in our major cities, but then I'm a country dweller (and very much a stay-at-home nowadays).

Still, it's a cute cat on a leash in the snow, and I'll take it in the spirit it was offered.

10. We had "thundersnow" - first time I've heard it

Just one loud, massively echoing bang, about 6:40am - when it wasn't actually snowing (or raining) at my place (it did start soon after), and I hadn't noticed lightning. There's a recording of it here, from the other side it seems: https://www.dailyecho.co.uk/news/19035031.met-office-confirms-overnight-thundersnow-hampshire/

I spent half an hour thinking it was probably an explosion, until local radio disabused me.

12. I suppose I'm more of a cat...

I find snow far too slippery and slushy!

I do find, however, that wearing a mask, apart from its intended purpose, protects the old nose and throat from the worst of the icy damp air.
