  1. thanks for the explanations
  2. Hiya, I was checking the weather forecast today and I noticed semi circular map of rain of German coast - wondered if it's a technical glitch or a weather anomaly ?
  3. Hi mate, yes, couldn't write the script. Change of plan, no trains Uday and only road route was via Glasgow. Couldn't justify the journey, especially when , due to the lack of trains, I would have to do the same journey tomorrow to collect them. So change of plan, up at 5 this morning to check status, couple of roads open, left at 6.15, A1, A167 at North but ran into a couple of fresh blockages, eventually got across to Berwick and away up, arrived Edinburgh 10.45. Gotta laugh, the A1 Alnwick was then immediately reopened and I came home that way, to find out the bloody trains have started running a restricted service, couldn't bloody write it!

    Tell you what, saw some fantastic snowy scenes, drifting to:15-20 ft, v dangerous. Mi

      sods law lol ...at least it was scenic, well done! glad you managed it :D 

  4. Good luck with the journey mate, I'm supposed to be in Morpeth @8pm tonight and I'd be only driving from Sunderland, I'm quite reluctant to make journey out there (and back later after 11pm ish ) considering the amber warnings and all the amount of accidents and breakdowns over the past couple of days ...
  5. gas supplies warning given http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-43229297
  6. The Sunderland council website is poor when trying to find out if schools are are closed, I eventually found via https://www.sun-fm.com/schools/school-closures/ if anyone needs an update - I'm surprised that many more are still reported as open, noticed GoNortheast buses have cancelled services too - not much snow fell over Sunderland, (well not where I'm situated ) over night
  7. I been checking quite often on accuweather to see when the snow is heaviest over Sunderland ... I reckon it's confusing the stars for snow not much happening here
  8. I wonder if many local schools will now decide to close tomorrow and Wednesday on the strength of those met office amber warnings ? ...it would certainly put me back in my daughter's 'good book' after my recent comments that she will be most likely having a couple of snow days
  9. nothing of note to report in Sunderland ...haven't seen one flake yet my youngest has given me a weary look as I mentioned last week there may be school closures ... wish I'd kept quiet
  10. I s'pose the other thing to consider if the weather event is as disruptive as some of the forecasters suggest, then power outages from the extra gas/electric demand could be a possibility - so put more food in the cupboard (and don't open the freezer)maybe the way forward
