"Shivering Britain braced for more snow"
Dear v’media things that need to be "braced":
the roofs of coal seams,
the bulging bulkheads of stricken minesweepers
The squares of Highland infantry regiments against the on coming spear points of the Polish Lancers at Waterloo...
and at a push teeth and perhaps grouse!
A bit of snow demands at most topping up the anti freeze in the car washer bottle, finding your gloves and perhaps soaking the odd pan of lentils!
