    I do, it is normal, it amazes me how the papers make it out like it is doomsday. I mean I bet it won't be half as bad as they say it will be.

    If a single snowflake falls, all schools will immediately close.

    This amounts to a national tradition now. However, there is always one holdout school (generally somewhere mad like mid-Wales or the Cairngorms) that insists on staying open, even though the kids have to be dug out from snowdrifts in the playground.
    I go to that one holdout school, though we aren't in mid-Wales.

    Man cannot live on milk, digestives and huskies alone.
    I think you'll find huskies are pretty nutritious all by themselves. No need for milk and digestives.

    Well, I just know that the Spetsnaz run training course in stuff like Survival and anti-terrorist tactics for normal citizens.
    What, so they can defend themselves against Mr Putin?

    Temperatures are going to PLUNGE according to the media, from Monday and for several weeks. :afraid:
    http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2...now-uk-weather

    It will fall as low as 3 degrees in many areas and there may even be snow over northern hills. :excited:

    Are you ready for this extreme weather?

    Are you nonchalant? :flute: Will you be huddling up? :grouphugs:

    Things you will need.

    * Shovels, grit, warm gloves and warm coat

    * Husky team - public transport generally halts after the first flurry of snow

    * Extra supplies of milk and digestives :cookie:

    * Large selection of DVDs - it will be impossible to leave home :couchpotato:

    ******* YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED *********

    This was a TSR public service announcement. Do not engage in unnecessary panic. Engage in necessary panic.
    I have my down jacket, 4 season down sleeping bag, thick woolen socks and loads of ice breaker merino wool tops at the ready, oh and my beanie :woo:

    Thanks for the PSA.

    I'm a bit concerned as later this week I have to be in Aberdeen. Not so concerned about the snow more concerned over fog as that does affect take-offs and landings.

    Other times, not too worried about public transport, have a Land Rover with good winter tyres

    Shovel and grit? What for?

    Digestive biscuits and milk?? Why?? Waitrose won't be closed.

    Am actually looking forward to a cold winter, not had a chance to test out how good our new heating and insulation at home is.

    Weather as a whole doesn't affect or bother me.

    Huddle? Huddle up with who? :P

    Man. I don't even want to think about what's going to happen to the bus service...

    Then again, Lancaster being Lancaster, it will probably just rain and have a cold wind. The usual.

    Better start taking more Vit C supplements to boost your immune system That place is notorious for some of the nastiest flu bugs that time of the year.

    Especially the young ones, which are more tender. Of course, if you have a horse, you can hollow it out and shelter inside it, like Napoleon's armies in Russia.
