So @karlos1983 isn’t reading the MAD thread for an hour. Early indications from the ECM show he might come back to 100 new posts.

Please post all your recipes of meals to make on the gas hob please when all electric is dead and gone! ...

(Do we need to buy water? Is there a national how to prepare for this website?)

There are loads of websites for "prepping" with loads of info. Take your pick depending on your levels of anxiety concering: weather, natural disasters, crisis capitalism, pandemics or zombies... :rofl:

Did anyone just see the BBC forecast.

2-4c maxes for early next week with a chance of snow on Tuesday, but staying mostly dry.

No mention of windchill, or sub zero days, or frequent snow showers.

A fairly un-inspiring forecast :cc_confused:

They’re really not giving much away. Wonder if they will tomorrow.

Cold? Yes. V Cold? Eventually, Yes.

Snow? Hmmm......i still think we are in one of more sheltered spots here in Bristol. But, other parts of our area like South coast, IoW, S Devon, Cornwall, far east of our area are prob in firing line from 'the off'.

I still think, for most of our area, the biggest threat of disruptive snow comes towards end of next week when pressure starts to fall from the South/South West.

That is my take anyway.

All i ask.... is for No Repeat of March '13. Dry, cold but no snow - no ta!

Meteogroup these days.

Continually underplaying temps. Today forecast to be 6/7c for here; actual max was 3c.

It’s crazy isn’t it! I just can’t quite believe that these models have churned out day after day of yummy ooziness lately. It’s just amazing!! 

The 1st March is repeatedly being suggested as channel Low day too.. hope this continues

Everyone at work was like that two. No matter how much you try and persuade them it’s not going to be normal, they just don’t flaming listen!!

Ok, serious question time.....I work 17 miles away from home, the folk I work for are away working in London for most of the week so I have to feed the dogs as well as do the garden - not getting to work isn't an option or they'll go hungry. I've got a Landrover so theoretically it isn't going to be a problem, just might take a wee bit longer to get there. However, back in the really cold snowy winter of 1981 I remember we had to put camping stoves underneath the tractors to warm the diesel before we could get them going. If it gets really cold, diesel gets too thick to start an engine - does anyone know if this problem still exists or have they come up with an additive that stops this happening?

I will try to remember to ask hubby when I speak to him soon but we're having a bit of a family crisis at the moment so I apologise in advance if I forget.

On the topic of cars, please remember everyone to keep the area around the exhaust pipe clear of snow (I can dream!) when the engine is running. The exhaust can back up into the car and that's not terribly good for you.

Right, that's my last piece of doom and gloom. I'm ready to have some fun now! :yahoo::friends::drunk::cold:

March 2013 was a nightmare for my location, 2-3c day and night and near constant cloud cover with zero precip.

Never want that again.

This setup looks a lot different, but as always we will probably last to the snow party. Still can't grumble, plenty to look forward too

Their temperature forecasts are abysmal. But, funnily enough, they under-cooked it for me today. They had me down for 5°C but it managed 6.9°C

AHA...I thought as much,Bristle Boy has saved my sanity.Much has been said about March 2013,to me it passed with little interest here,yes I remember some non settling flurries,but as I cant find the work diary,no real proof.In reality 09 and 10 are the only 2 occasions in my 27 years down here where ive seen settling snow during daylight hours,this might,i stress might be the third.
