  1. Yep, surprised to see the velux window in the bathroom covered again this morning. i haven’t looked at the radar but wasn’t expecting anything overnight so whatever we end up with is a nice surprise
  2. It was snowing a bit when I left work at 5pm but it didn’t do much. what we are having now is more like damp blowing fog than drizzle but you can feel the damp from it.
  3. Windy, foggy and damp outside to the point where you can see what looks like rain blowing about. only thing is with it already being -3c I can see there being some serious ice on the cars and slippy roads in the morning. meanwhile as i’ve got drizzle at 1000ft, sea level in Cornwall gets buried in snow.
  4. All we need now then is some fresh new snow for our thread. tomorrow and Friday are looking unlikely so it’s all eyes on Sunday which may or may not deliver
  5. My parents always said that the snowstorm in 1940 possibly January but not sure was heavier here than anything in either 47 or 63. a hell of a statement to make given the mythical like status those 2 have reached but aparantly the level snow was over 3 feet deep. big question is would it have warranted a Met O amber warning or being up here, would a yellow have been enough
  6. I think you’d better ask Dyche that one and worryingly I have to agree that we’ve been bloody poor for much of the season but whether unfashionable teams like Burnley pee off the “fans” of the big clubs or not we are there on merit and as and when we get relegated, we’ll only get replaced by someone else who doesn’t fit in with the plan.
  7. Where did I say we did deserve to win. After the mauling from the other Mancs in the cup i’d have taken a point before kick off and am happy with one at the end. tbh we couldn’t defend a two goal lead last time and it looks like Dyche hasn’t learned anything this time around either. as for your other comments, isn’t stopping goals what defenders and the keeper are in the team for and your keeper isn’t rated as one of the best on the planet for constantly losing you games.
  8. 2nd season running that we’ve been 0-2 up at OT and ended up drawing 2-2. getting a bit of a habit
  9. They seem to be hitting the Pennines and then turning south. obviously don’t fancy going to Yorkshire in the dark
  10. It seems to happen pretty well every year in much the same way that the north Midlands are often the northern limit of hot weather in summer
  11. No that’s the one I was talking about. the most easterly of the showers was right above Bacup so about 7 miles north of Rochdale. it wouldn’t take much of a change in direction to put Greater Manchester in the firing line and take the Rossendale Valley out of it.
  12. From an IMBY point of view I like the look of that line of showers coming in between the IOM and Walney Island. only problem is that the first one which the radar showed directly above me ended up giving me nothing but I live in hope
  13. Agreed, only a decent easterly seems to offer anything more than transient slush these days.
  14. Probably but if the rumours that it’s raining darn sarf are true I might just have a look into the mad thread to cheer myself up.
  15. I’m thinking the same as many in here that Thursdays snow will end up short of all but the most southerly parts of our region but the BBC forecast just before 7 seemed quite bullish about moving it across all parts. i suppose we have at least another 24-36 hours before we can firm up on its final path but in the meantime maybe some overnight showers for the lucky ones.
  16. Well that was a bit underwhelming, certainly around here. a full days steady snow dropped about 3 inches up here, maybe 2 inches at work and the heaviest snow I saw all day was from a shower on the way home from work. one good thing was how quiet the roads were coming up the valley as a lot of folk looked to have finished work early. i’ve seen busier Sunday tea times. maybe some decent showers overnight but as for who gets them, it’s down to lamp post watching.
  17. The radar shows the band of activity out in the Irish Sea to be on a SW NE track and missing most of the region. hopefully this will veer more westerly but it’s currently looking good for Cumbria, providing of course it falling as snow.
  18. I had a cm of snow from a shower around 9.30 last night, but otherwise it looks to have been dry throughout. not looking bad for today though with the Met O icons (yes they aren’t the most reliable) giving me heavy snow from 7am through to well into this evening. yes a lot of it will be in the form of showers so very much subject to last minute change but we would have to be damned unlucky to not see a decent covering from today’s Synoptics.
  19. I think it’s upgraded the chance of snow showers overnight
  20. snowing and sticking here, another couple of miles more and our Yorkshire friends can officially join in the fun.
  21. If that’s the best it can offer it can stop south. anyway i’ve only got one snow shovel and i’ll still be digging all of tomorrow’s and wednesdays snow out so will need a break on Thursday
  22. We had snow on the ground from new year into mid March and much of the time it was drifted as high as the top of the downstairs windows. just a shame it was before digital cameras and phones, the photos would have been amazing.
  23. Unfortunately i’m old enough to remember 1979 and around these parts it made 2010 look pretty snowfree but I know what you mean.
