Irritable hyperbole syndrome

Snow is, at the moment, causing problems in many places. Around me, traffic was hampered and an airport was closed. Elsewhere, things have been more severe. To the east, Basingstoke in southern England was taken by surprise and had a very bad day.

But it does irritate me to hear the tired old cliché trotted out again that Basingstoke "is like a war zone".

No; really, it isn't.
