The best from the east arrives Friday into Saturday with  sub zero temperatures expected with a substantial windchill .

Heavy snow in places and with the strong east wind expected will blow the snow around , it will eventually amass the whole country by Sunday so get your proper woolies  ready .

We had 4 inches of snow yesterday this is the real thing coming expected to last around a week .

Eating snow is a bad idea. A sure way to win the 100 metre dash.

Perhaps you didnt turn them on enough?

Four inches LOL. Where my nephew in Japan lives thye have about one or two meters for three months of the year. This country would be totally buggered to hell if we had another  1947 or 1963. 

 

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

4" the ice is thicker in my fridge ,1963 was very exiting for a ten year old .

Lots of mad sledging on masons hill (it had a path running horizontaly across it so you took off before continuing the slope)

And a group of us from different streets rolled a ball so big in the end we couldnt move it ,the snow melted the ball remained and a bloke from the council broke it up with a jack hammer as blocked a third of the road.

Sea froze at folkestone

Warm here i expect its the same down south in cory town

Today it was what we call "dreich". I was only three. It was the first time I had seen snow. I got a coal shovel full of it and threw it on my grannies fire to see if the stuff would burn.

Its easy when its regular ,think of the fuss here if we had all the snow ploughs we needed plus a few spares and they sat rusting waiting for years for the next snowfall . They dont even bother in scotland they just shut the gates and wait for the thaw!

I remember the council even used to clear the pavements now they dont even clear the roads in town and one year on boxing day we went to folkestone to see our son and the motorways had snow all the way down to maidstone!

I doubt trains nowadays could even push a plough through a foot high drift!.

There we go

ALL,

Not a pleasant thought.

Sounds like Rochester, New York gets more snow than any other large city in the United States, with a yearly average of 100 inches (255 cm).

It is "lake effect" snow off the great lakes.

Just a reminder - - all ice cycles contain bird shite - don't eat them like we did as kids

There are only three or four roads with snow gates. I can't speak for all of Scotland but where I come from the council workers take their gritters and snow ploughs home with them. Even little single track roads that only lead to farms get gritted otherwise the milk tanker would not make its rounds.

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

So leafs and wrong snow are real things. Leaf mold from falling leaves make a kind of mulm on the railway lines and that makes them very greasy. Fine powder snow can get sucked into the cooling systems of electric trains and cause shorts. I remember when I used to commute between Southampton and Waterloo on a daily basis we were talking about such things. One of our group was a Swiss guy who used to work on the Swiss railways. He told us that in Switzerland the do not suffer a deciduous tree to grow within 50 metres of a railway line.

Another thing that does not help is that  have noticed that a lot of trains down here have live rails, glorified Scalextric sets. Up north they are either diesel electric or overhead wires with pantos.

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.
