Well I need to stock up on dog food crickets and hoppers,  I already got plenty of cat food. Loads of chocolate, even Easter eggs from last year 🤪

God I really hope this verifies, living 6 miles from the North Sea Snow machine it has been 8 long years since the last Thundersnow here after 2 episodes in 2009 and 2010.

I just want to make a video like this one below :rofl:

 

Jim Cantore is a legend! I enjoyed watching him on The Weather Channel on my frequent work trips to the States. A true weather enthusiast.

Hi, I don't post much on this forum but have been a member for a few years, but, I feel that as it looks as if we are in for extreme weather conditions, I thought it might be an idea to advise people of what they can do to prevent freeze ups to their domestic water supplies by making sure all water pipes are lagged, turning off outside water pipes and draining down. It used to be the done thing to put a matchbox underneath the loft hatch so that some warmth could get into the loft.There must be other folks reading this forum who can offer advice regarding looking after your homes. And don't forget the wildlife, and elderly friends and neighbours.

I am lucky enough to remember 1962/3 winter, was great to start with but after a week or two of freezing conditions we were fed up with it, even the horse drawn milk float couldn't get up our road. 

Cheers

Whilst today has seen a return of the gloomy drizzle laden conditions here, the previous 4 days were a tantalising and welcome glimpse of early Spring.

From last Thursday through to Sunday daytime maxes were 9-10c. Nothing too exciting I grant you, but when coupled with the lightest of breezes and between 6 and 8 hours of relatively strong sunshine each day it was enough to cheer me up.

The crickets are for the leopard gecko , the hoppers are for his Mexican red knee. Tarantula. I spray it’s tank but that’s as far as I go lol. All my girls are frightened of it haha.  It’s a good way to evacuate the room and have some peace and quite 😂

Recent model tweet after ECM ensembles from Fergie and still rather cautious (there's a surprise) - on outcome of cold and snow totals as he says the model 'over plays' snow amounts and says a number of members have turned to a northerly from the 1st March - make of that what you will.

Forget it mate...watching that Julie on look east is like watching paint dry...BBC are ALWAYS cautious when it comes to possible snow and cold, they won't 'firm' up until at least another couple of days when we have almost cross model agreement within 3/4 days...

Luckily i always keep a few canned goods in stock so even if by some chance everything is gone in the supermarket on friday, i'll get by for a few days and bird can have tinned fish and cat food, even though its not his favourite.

I'm going to start this off...........I think the Daisy Express front page headline sometime this week will read:

Mummy & Daddy Beasts From The East Are On The Way To Unleash Uncontrollable Blizzards Along With Bone Crushing -20C Windchill :cold:

I don’t mind running out of tinned and cupboard as the deep freezer is nicely stocked. I think my lot would be complying about who used all the toilet roll, I’m sure they eat it with the rate they go through it 😃

When the first flake of snow falls, Southern Rail will stop all trains because their drivers will be doing this :rofl:

luckily i have plenty of toilet roll. also some stuff for stews in freezer. also some long life milk, looking forward to steaming hot porridge while it snows, with oxo broth and hot chocolate although not all at the same time.maybe some hot milk, haven't had plain hot milk for ages. hot ribena as well.

Place your repeat prescriptions in, and pick them up before the weekend .

people remember the food, not always the pills.

Yuk hate milk, I eat my cereals dry. I do have those satchels of porridge, one box is pecan the other is blueberry , and the box that none of my kids will eat which is mine is the coconut porridge. You can bet if the house ran out of food except the items containing coconut my kids would starve lol
