  2. Re the temps; these were real temps under cloudy and windy skies if you know what I mean. Other lows quoted probably under clear calm skies?
  3. It was a truly fantastic event, particularly temperature wise but sadly cut too short. For my area (Reading), a little more snow and 3 days longer and it would have been only slightly less severe than 91
  4. Wow, this was way out. Lets face it, as far as the medium term signal is concerned they got it very wrong.
