- The Big Freeze ? Well thats it all over we can get back to normal .Yay !
After all the headless chicken reporting in the media it looks like it's all fizzling out after only about a week or so .Expected heavy snow for overnight and today hasn't materialised and temperatures will be up around plus 3 or 4 by tomorrow .So thats it then .As i said before 1963 went on until March !This time next week we will have to find something else to talk about .What tyres for slush ?Flooding ? 😀Posted 8 years agogonefishinMember

Well I don't know where you are living but there's been snow on the ground in Aberdeen for over three weeks and it was pretty cold for a while before that. I'll be glad to no have to use 3rd gear to get out of my driveway anymore.Posted 8 years agoStu_NSubscriber
Well if it's thawing in the SE then we're fine after all. We've had snow on the ground since 17 Dec here so it's more like a month than a week.
Still little sign of a thaw here (West Lothian), though I did manage to break up the 3 inch thick ridge of ice that has causing problems getting a car in and out the drive so maybe it is getting a bit warmer.Posted 8 years agoaracerSubscriber
Still nicely frozen here at the SW Worcestershire Alps. Has been snowing lightly. 5 day forecast suggests we'll reach the heady temperature of +2 on Wednesday (still freezing overnight). Without rain, which we don't have forecast, the snow won't be disappearing any time soon, much to my relief, as I'm hoping to break my previous record of skiing 9 days in a row and today will only be day 6.
Dripping from your roof? Do you really think your insulation is so good that the temperature on the outside of your house isn't a little elevated compared to the general outside temperature?Posted 8 years agobonjMember
Good bloody riddance to it.Posted 8 years ago
Quite nice biking in it a few times but once the novelty's worn off it's just a grind and just an excuse for yet more doom and gloom in the papers.
I bought some stout, waterproof, walking boots yesterday, with the thinking that if the cold and snow carries on, then I'll get some good use out of them, but if sod's law prevails and it clears up now I've got myself equipped for it, then everyone'll thank me for it. I'll have a pint, ta.
It must be almost over: we've just a little council digger come down our street to clear the 3 week old snow. If they've got around to doing us then I guess the main roads are fine now!
Shame I've spent most of the weekend digging my wife's car out then helping push various neighbours up the road as they got theirs unstuck 🙂Posted 8 years ago
