    I never perused the Maths or Physics A levels required to go for meteorology and to be honest i prefer it as a hobby.

    If i could get a job in the commercial department of the Met Office though that would be the best of both worlds.

    No this is my old school in York! We dug the buses out from the snow on 2 occasions and even had icicles inside the school on one. we even stayed open through a broken boiler in sub zero temperatures. 6 closures in 64 years speaks for itself.
    Gosh. You go to an incredibly stoical school. Congratulations to your Head and all of the staff for being so determined to make your lives unbearably strict.

    Give it time! The cold spell has barely even started. I am still hopeful that some truly dreadful weather will arrive, justifying the anxious tone of my thread. :cool:

    This is Britain, my dear. Sometimes you just have to like rain for its own sake. Patience! The alternative is severe personality collapse and paranoia. :titan:

    Ah well. We can still hope for this in the not too distant future.. :snowman:

    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.
    Haha nice one! Best thread I've read on TSR in a long time - put a smile on my face

    I'll probably think of your post to cheer me up on the journey home/to work in this dreaded cold!

    Ha, that's nice, thanks! Glad I made your journey a little easier. Hope you are back in the warm now!

    Probably won't be as bad in warm old Norwich compared to the FROZEN WASTELANDS OF NORTH EAST SCOTLAND.





    However, I have been reliably informed that winter is coming. So I have dressed accordingly.

    And I thought that Newcastle was cold, good luck! As long as its ****ed off by the time I need to get back to comparatively tropical Yorkshire I don't think I'll mind too much, I've ticked off the warm coat requirement in a big way, my overdraft is still crying a little.

    Living on the South Coast it doesn't seem nearly as bad as everywhere else. Seeing Northerners trapped in the snow for weeks, schools closed, avalanches, etc. and all we had was some chilly winds.

    Got my Sorel snow boots, cosy jumpers and Primark fleecy leggings, bring it!

    Temperature already at -1C in Aboyne, Scotland.

    Cold front is over London.



    Showers now breaching Ireland and Scotland, just need dew points to drop and these may turn to snow.
