  1. A bit sleety at first but snowing heavily and settling on all surfaces now. its been a long while coming but finally a welcome to winter 2019
  2. Stupid o’clock start this morning but thankfully no snow or ice to clear before I set off and dry all the way down to the midlands. A bit of snow on the cars in Coventry but it must have been a rouge shower as a couple of miles away, nothing. all in all a lovely but cold day.
  3. Yep a bit sleety on the windscreen coming home from work but it’s fine again now. Only 3c now though so a good chance that anything that falls will be wintry.
  4. I think there’s a lot of truth in the 200m rule. It’s amazing how often i’ve driven home from Manchester and rain and green has turned to sleet and then settling snow as I got half way up the Rossendale Valley, about 200 metres. Beyond that it would be thicker in the town centre at about 250 metres and more still at home.
  5. Plenty of altitude here but we still often struggle with snow. TBH most of the North West region is pants when it comes to snow.
  6. Go easy on me but after the slightest dusting in late October and not a flake since, the one think I don’t want to do is wake up to a covering at stupid o’clock on Thursday morning when I have an early start to a meeting darn sarf. if it can wait until about 8 ish i’ll Be happy.
  7. The 2nd was definitely an own goal but from where I was sat and looking at the replays, the first was going in anyway should really be given to Hendrick. whether they will be is a different matter but I can’t see anyone at Fulham saying no, we want both as OG’s
  8. Can’t speak for others but up here the last 24 hours have been awful with strong gusty winds and continuous drizzle and at times heavier rain. it really is depressing stuff, especially given that anything remotely cold and more seasonal is continually at least a week to ten days away. personally i’m struggling to think of a period of more turgid non discript weather than what we have had for the last couple of months. role on summer
  9. And Fulham beat themselves at Burnley
  10. Enjoy mate. there were a couple of bars on the sea front selling bottles of Corona at a dollar a time. we only stopped off for a couple of days on a cruise, it would have been a matter of hours but for some essential maintenance but I liked the place and for any scouse visitors feeling homesick it has a large shopping mall near the cruise terminal called Liverpool.

    In Memoriam

    RIP Diane. She often irritated a lot of us in the Northwest regional thread by not offering snow when others were getting buried in the stuff but i’m sure she will be sorely missed by those who watched her on tv and many of the members of Netweather. i for one was guilty of some of the banter aimed at her but i’ll admit that I shed a tear this morning when I heard the news that this lovely person and brilliant broadcaster would not be on our tv again. I can’t imagine what her husband, children and family are going through.
  12. RIP Diane As others have said, she got a bit of light hearted stick on here due to her mild ramping but in most cases she ended up being proved right and when snow was definitely on the cards she had the cheeky smile that makes you think she did actually like a bit of the white stuff. to me she was like a non posting member of this thread and I for one will miss here on the television.
  13. My thoughts are that it will be summed up by a big fat
  14. Nice mate and a damn site better than our relentless, mild damp and murky crap. enjoy and i’ll stick any snow we get in the freezer for when you get back. looking at the forecast, I should have enough room.
  15. Snowed in at the airport until March and nothing but drones in the air to show had bad the drifts are where you off to Moki.
  16. What is it with the lower Premier League clubs and the FA Cup. three out of the bottom four already out to lower league opposition. two more only managed draws and we huffed and puffed at home and needed a 92nd minute penalty to get passed a team two divisions lower. yes Premier League survival is worth far more financially than a good cup run and cup upsets happened long before it is believed Sky invented football in the early 90’s but a lot of the Premier League and Championship sides just don’t look interested anymore.
  17. Nothing to say that others haven’t summed up already. role on light nights then at least the gloom can be seen for longer.
  18. It tends to be windy around late December early January here but it’s more to do with diet than the position of the jet stream it has been a bore fest so far though and if we can’t have snow and cold then give me gales.
  19. All looking a bit downbeat in the mod thread tonight with the “nailed-on” snowmaggedon being pushed back again and now scheduled for around mid summer. never mind at least we’ll have some light nights to enjoy the sledging.
  20. Convincing win for the Boro and a great to see Accy Stanley getting a Championship scalp. what odds on them getting us in the next round although last time we played them in the League Cup they got the win.
  21. The same VAR took one of us after a minute of waiting. thank god it wasn’t watching when we got the second right at the end.
  22. As others have said, the worst kind of winter weather and it certainly felt damn cold sat on the football this afternoon.
