Swansea stood up to the beast and roared right in its face .

The beast whimpered let out a little miaow , stamped its feet and went off in a huff towards Ireland .

 

 

 

Good way of looking at it :rofl:

Well , it’s been bitterly disappointing here in Swansea .

I can’t recall ever feeling as let down as much as this time .

Plenty of just the wrong side of marginals in the past , plenty of just a bit too far aways, plenty of if it can go wrong it will go wrong and did go wrong - but this tops the lot .

A truly epic failure I hope never to witness again .

I see a few are hanging on in here now , bitten by the beast they have the bug , all that white powder crap coursing through their veins , a monumental high that they are still surfing ,yet slowly but surely the come down begins , but it’s denial at the moment , soon though with only the pictures and charts to show for it .

These days will become those halcyon days .

” Remember March 1st 2018 “ .

“An absolute shocker butt “.

Great being on this forum though !

And with that , like the beast ,and evil Emma ,I think I shall slink back into the shadows to lurk perhaps until next winter .

Good afternoon , good evening and good night .

to be fair, this has been a  good event for some. had the potential to be one of the classics, but because only a small area really speaking got hammered, and the majority didn't really, it can't be mentioned in the same breath as 82, 78, 63 etc

 

first time in 36 years i saw sustained drifting though, and for that i'll remember it

Historic event - last time I saw alot of snow was 2010, this beat that hours ago. 4ft drifts now and to think we've got more snow coming.

i think you maybe making the old mistake of measuring drifting snow with lying snow.  epic of course but

I'll remember if for the wind and the cold, both were very impressive.
