December 1981 in Historic Weather Posted October 14, 2010 · Edited October 14, 2010 by RichardR Surely no one in their right mind would want a repeat of this December. Too right! How dreadful. I just wonder what the temperature in our house in Buxton would sink to if we had feet of snow and -20Â°C. Probably would get below freezing inside. Imagine the heating bill. In fact, the heating would probably fail in our house. And, not being able to get to work, the general inconvenience and hassle as well as the dangers, given how ill equipped he UK is for such conditions. But worst of all, the sheer physical pain of the absence of heat energy (which is all the cold is, of course) would really, seriously see me fly abroad on what little savings I have, even if it sinks my credit rating! Just so long as the snow has not shut all the airports down. Brrrr. Nothing worse. How anyone could want this, I will never understand.
