The people of Britain vs. Storm Emma
This week in the UK, Storm Emma collided with the "Beast from the East", bringing severe weather conditions and causing major disruptions.
Although the snow is not always welcome, some of these videos being posted on Twitter definitely are.
Firstly, this girl thought that the icy streets were the perfect place for her to pull out her Michael Jackson impression, and surprisingly it did not go well. (Listen out for her shouting at the floor to "wait" as she falls face first into the snow.)

This uni student did what all of us would do in these weather conditions... lean out of his flat all morning and film strangers slipping over a patch of ice. The student filmed a total of 21 people dropping on the ice, and he did not seem to get bored as you can hear his uncontrollable laughter throughout. We have all been that person who falls in the snow, and as embarrassing as it is, you can't help but laugh when it's not you.

Good Morning Britain presenter Katie Rickitt is the next victim of Storm Emma, as she somehow managed to crash her sledge within seconds of sitting on it live on television. The complete U-Turn she manages to make is weirdly impressive as she heads down the hill, it's just a shame she missed the Winter Olympics by a few weeks.

This Scottish dad could not help himself when he woke up to his children's snow-covered trampoline, jumping face first into the thick pile of snow. The slow motion makes this video oddly satisfying as he chops through the snow and makes a reverse snow-angel. I reckon he might need to put on a few more layers after that.

And finally, this cold little dog is all of us after leaving the house for more than one minute. Dressing gown on, blanket at the ready, and completely unimpressed at how cold it is outside; I know exactly how this dog is feeling.
everyone’s posting photos of their dogs playing in the snow. here’s my dog recovering from the cold weather in her dressing gown x pic.twitter.com/SliXsSBHgb

As funny as the snow can be, the current harsh conditions sweeping the UK are dangerous and potentially life-threatening, therefore the weather office advises to plan ahead and avoid dangerous areas if at all possible.
