I'm lydford way but client is in Mary tavy, I've got a 4x4 so hopefully would be able to get to her and offered my portable electric heater but she won't take it. Luckily she has the village shop but imagine that would be stripped bear if we get snow forecasted! Can't believe BBC Radio Devon said it will rain next week 😂

One of my besties lives in Mary Tavy. If it does all get hideous message me, and I'll let her know too. Sometimes though with the elderly you've got to just go ahead and do it. ( I have one next door and my parents are too) She will need a new gas bottle soon so you are only getting it for her earlier than she needs. 😉

My husbands reponse to the sledge arrival: " She'll enjoy it when you drag her in that along a muddy field "

I suggest we all take it with a pinch of salt until Monday AM. Lets get it all started then review.

Grit salt?

Lol my point exactly. Now he's back tracking 

Could you scroll through Ian's tweets, please, and see if you can find anything that would make his latest tweet a 'backtrack'?! You'll be hard pushed to find anything.

Sit tight for 24 hours and lets see what happens. Cold and flurries at the worst works well - the most we've had so far

Got this feeling our region is going to miss out on the disruptive snow next week as we are too far west. We might get lucky with fronts pushing in from the SW late Thurs/Fri otherwise eastern UK look to benefit most.

If anything I thought he was very careful not to ramp the cold up

Come on this isn’t the MAD thread. We’re supposed to be a positive bunch in here. :fool:

Always the optimist...swathes of the country blanketed by feet of snow and I looked out into my green garden (was that 8 years ago!). Then, from nowhere, a sneaky French low bubbled into our region, hit the cold and my kids saw their first ever proper, deep snow.

I'm getting the snowboard and sledges free from spiders and owl droppings because the end of the week shows a chance  and I'll take that for now :D

(I think I last logged in years ago! Lol, snow happiness has returned)

I forgot to mention if anyone ever want to blame someone for suggesting the FB group, don’t blame me. :whistling:

@Purplepixii mentioned FB first.

The model forum is bigging up an English Channel streamer modelled midweek next week. East and South Devon plus southern Cornwall in the firing line.

Extremely rare scenario for the South West. Small margins can be the difference between seeing zilch or a foot of snow.

Exciting times.

Mr & Mrs Pied Wagtail have arrived in my garden. They normally appear just before or during cold weather.
