As much as I'm not enamoured of another cold spell, I hope the model forecasts firm up soon so I can plan what days to take off. Keeping my fingers crossed it doesn't last too long- was enjoying the daffs and crocus that were starting to appear!

You're the football fan who walks into your local towns biggest home fan pub with an away shirt on aren't you?

I didn't like the look of the wind direction arrows on this mornings BBC Weather.

By Friday it appeared to show SE direction and the deep blues were changing back to greens.

Also the summary included mainly dry week and there was no mention of snow!

Hah! Anyone who gripes are welcome to spend a day working with me in sub zero temps.

I've done it in the past. You just wrap up warm and keep moving 

Although some of the charts showing up would be a bit too cold for being outside to be fair.

Won't fall out with that at all.  I worked through the winters of 78 , 81/2 87 and 91. Although I like a bit of cold and snow  for a while it,s  one thing having a bit of fun for an hour or two, but quite another having to stand out in it for 8 hours a day  Monday to Friday. Like yourself I shall probably take a few days off if it gets really cold  at 58 I'e done my bit.:D

You'd think that at least one weather app would actually have a snow symbol or some actual cold showing on them for this time next week (for the south) and into next but nada, bit fat zero, zilch on any of them and with daytime temps around 5-7c.

yes, it's 6.7'c here today already, you'd think with them saying a cold spell is coming, that there'd have to be colder temperatures?

just said to the wife ' think we are going to need a bigger boiler'

mixed emotions for me though, love the cold but the daughter starts a job Monday next which she will have to drive a round trip of 100 miles a day down country roads, she has never realy driven in proper snow (if it comes), lots of dad worry coming up maybe.

You won't be the only one, with parent worries.

most of the young and youngish drivers, have never experienced it. 

Best advice, if she has to drive, is take a warm coat, hat gloves etc  and warm socks ,sweeties and a drink with her, a phone charger and keep a full tank so if she's stuck in traffic she can keep engine running for warmth.

oh and a shovel, but you've probably told her that.

in fact even us oldies need reminding of those sensible precautions.

it doesn't take a prang to leave you stranded, wasn't it lorrys a few years back that crippled a M road , cos they couldn't climb from a standing start ?

 

wish her luck x
