Were not "dreaming of a white Christmas" in the UK as the cost of heating has doubled in the last year.
The undertakers will be very busy this winter, and their customers will be stiffer than usual because of hypothermia.

 That is certainly a sad point of harsh winters and the economy.

The snow missed us this week. It fell west of here and in Houston (First one) on the 10th and in New Orleans on the 11th. The street car is one that runs in the old quarter down St. Charles Street. (RE: Tennessee Williams "A Streetcar Named Desire")

Yes, very unusual.  It happens here, but not often.  My friend called me a few days ago from Pensacola and said it was snowing.  She and her kids are from Miami and had never seen snow before so they were very excited.

The stiffs might be stiffer and they might smell better too, but since they are not in a positon to pay I don't think they are generally customers.

It has become totally unacceptable. I know quite a few people on low income who won't be able to afford to heat their homes properly this winter. Our heating bill is running at about 30 per week at the moment and it's not even that cold yet.

People do pay for their funeral in advance, (sometimes via an assurance policy),
 so despite having "kicked the bucket" they are still footing the bill.

In November my gas supplier increased my direct debit by 3.25x  [:0]

The undertaker should give them a discount because of the shorter coffin & grave.   :)

My gas supplier did that, until I sent them an email reminding them just how many suppliers there are out there, and how easy it would be for me to switch to another one.
