Unfair. Finland is norther than the UK but even we don't have enough snow here to skip school or work. Damn the city who clears the roads every morning. It's pretty much snow here but got to go to school even if its -20 or colder. And the common understanding is that in Finland there are polar bears? Yeah right.
That´s bacause we northerners can handle snow ;D And polar bears live in Norway as well %) And penguins.
