Call for imperial weather units
Now that we are in the season where dissemination of accurate information about weather conditions can mean the difference between life and death, I can only hope that journalists will take the time to convert metric units into imperial ones.
Like most people of my age, when it comes to snow, I know what six inches looks like. But the same in centimetres is something which I cannot easily visualise.
While EU-compliant officialdom may seek to kill off us old dinosaurs to hasten its goal of compulsory metrication by effectively withholding such essential information, I would urge the media to be more considerate.
