More Snow - hang a heavy curtain at teh front door that will cut out draughts.

i've gone one step further than that, i've taped the entire door up :rofl: and the snow continues to pile up outside, I'm totally gobsmacked by this today, never seen anything like it in my life, its even better than Feb 91 and I was living in Essex at the time and we got buried but this is better than that.

    Although I agree to a certain extent with the Met's logic on this I think a 'red' should apply wherever there is threat to life or disruption regardless of population density. 

    I agree sir!

    Hahaha - Edinburgh in a red warning! There is hope! Or has that just killed it? :rofl:

    Do you need to ask :nonono:Bonnie snow covered day in town, tourists loving it. Off topic, just having a hot chocolate in MacDonalds. Would it have been wrong of me to eat the 4 chicken nuggets that someone just walked away and left ? In the minutes I took to ponder that moral question, a staff member binned them. Won't make that mistake again...

    I'm not happy, in fact I'm quite sad. Bloody snow plough just went past here and trashed my road snaw.

    I blame Humza Yousaf.

    Yep, just missed us by a couple of miles looks like... but, that looks accurate, as has been very little here for the past few hours... but, I'm still banking on the experts in here thinking there is more tonight, so still running on hope for now :)

    Def a red warning for snow in 2010, but it was removed some hours before its time-stamp arrived.
