    If we didn't overreact about the weather we wouldn't be British. It's kind of our thing.

    It's about being British. We love to say 'Typical British Weather.' Our go to, to fill in the silence in conversations, is the weather

    I haven't had snow stick in Liverpool for like, 3 YEARS! Or even bloody four.
    Our weather is so damn bleek, boring and moderate, any change brings forth a wave of excitement with unforeseeable magnitutde 😂.

    Because we don't really get any kind of extreme weather so when we do get some kind of storm or heavy snowfall we act like it's an apocalypse and make a bit fuss out of it. Schools closed, supermarkets ransacked, motorways closed etc 😂

    True. If we didn't complain about the weather we would all stop talking to each other.

    Yes British people still complain about British weather even though they're not there.

    We don’t over react but it would take an idiot not to notice the rapid changes in weather here on a daily basis. Yesterday it snowed heavily a minute later it was sunny af.

    I don’t think we overreact. It’s either people who’re just looking to get a day off from work/school (which is everyone), or the media hyping it up for content.

    We rarely get weather that is different from the usual dry or wet weather, so as soon as there is a change we tend to get really excited. Especially since snow is rare and when we do get it in the area i'm from then it usually doesn't set for long. Anything different from the usual weather is something we over react about

    I've noticed this. Everytime it snows in the UK (and let's be honest, it's not that rare) people start panic buying milk and bread. But to be fair, I live in a southern US state and when it snows here, people go absolutely crazy. My university was closed last year for 3 days because it snowed 100miles away. :confused: It's rare, but not that rare.

    What ever would we have to talk about if it wasn't making exclamations about the weather though?

    Because our weather is so shot and gloomy most of the of he time and it hasn’t snowed where I am for about 5 years.

    Plus we wouldn’t be British if we’re didn’t overreact about the weather 😂

    I don't know, why do people make wide generalizations about a diverse group of people?

    Some of my colleagues are German and Austrian. It's embarrassing having to listen to them laughing at how ****ing useless most Brits are when it's a tad nippy and we get a bit of snow.
