  1. Think you have made your point - Matty88 vs UK Met Office Only time will tell who has the better insight.
  2. Yes - I remember that too. Didn't last that long if memory serves me right but a lot did come down. I have photos of that event on my phone, but nothing from Mar '13.
  3. I have no recollection of the frequently cold and snow of March 2013 ... I have no recollection! Did we get any snow in Essex? I remember Dec 2010 and no particularly cold, snowy period since!
  4. The BBC were properly slapped for suggesting this yesterday.
  5. Running a small shop - sounds like I may have some impromptu days off work from this. It will be the first time in 6 years that I have been in business ... Lets see
  6. It is not those drivers (like yourself) who are prepared who are the issue, it is the rest who are unprepared that cause the jams and traffic chaos.

There is a lot of ramping and excitement (understandably so), difficult to get a real sober perspective. Thanks,
  12. Cannot imagine! I hope local authorities and charities do their utmost to move those affected to a shelter. Not two ways - there will be deaths from exposure if the charts come off as they are.
  13. Lets face it, it there is no snow or that transient rubbish from this evolution, there could well be a riot on the streets. I feel there are quite a few expectant folk on here ...
  14. I am reading the MO thread and what has been posted here but I am also still feeling .... Really?? I am underwhelmed, probably due to the lessons and disappointments of recent winters. The Met Office is keeping things real and I think it is best to adopt that - just in case
