    A funny thought is that I was conceived in the Winter of 1963 so maybe there will be a surge in Birth rates in 9 months

    If the Finns think this is light weather than they can keep Finland. The clue is in our core temperature and -5 in a strong wind and snow is bad enough for me. It was horrendous the other day and enough to stop you in your tracks when the wind hit head on.

    I wasnt fully geared up and Britain never seems ready but this weather is now killing people. I think we need more contingency plans in place for people in need of help. It does annoy me when I see people have taken to the roads for non essential trips. The motorways should be virtually empty. It should be transport of medical supplies and food only and thats going to have a job getting through.

    I wont be going out now until Tuesday

    Same as my wife (13th December), and the weather was rather 'interesting' then, too!!

    It does annoy me when I see people have taken to the roads for non essential trips. The motorways should be virtually empty. It should be transport of medical supplies and food only and thats going to have a job getting through.
    Hear, hear (on all counts). It roasts my globe like you couldn't imagine!!! WTF are these MINDLESS TOOLS playing at??

    As far as I'm concerned, anyone who lives in, or seeks to travel to the areas currently worst hit with snow, and who doesn't work for the emergency services, in one form of the other, or whose job doesn't involve being directly responsible for someone else's welfare [i.e. in a potential life or death capacity], or who doesn't desperately need urgent medical supplies, should.......................

    ..........STAY THE FUCK AT HOME!!!!!

    NOTHING ELSE BUT STAYING SAFE, AND KEEPING ROADS CLEAR FOR THE EMERGENCY SERVICES MATTERS!!

    That means no 'visits' to see friends or family somewhere, no trips into town to go clothes shopping (or any other forms of non-essential shopping), or 'jollies' of any other description - and no trying to be a 'hero' trying to get to work (if your occupation doesn't fall into one of the above categories), until it's safe to do so, as your place of work, and job, will still be there when the snow stops/melts, and life will go on!!

    THERE ENDETH THE MESSAGE, TO EXERCISE THE COMMON SENSE THAT YOU SHOULD'VE BEEN BORN WITH.

    Thank you

    Marco.

    Kinda hard to get food if you don't go out tho. Not that there is any. Tbf a lot of folk have been on foot here. But there's been greedy hoarding too. Saw folk getting out of taxi with about 10 bags of shopping. I give up with folk like that.

    Raining here now and as it's hitting the ground it's turning to ice. Very nasty conditions. Hopefully this shite weather will soon give way to something milder. Stay warm folks.

    I'd grab it off them and give it to the homeless at the nearest food bank, as punishment for their greed!

    The supermarkets should also have introduced a temporary restriction on the amount of food one person can buy, and rigidly enforced it.

    In terms of your first sentence above mate, this weather hasn't exactly come as a shock - it's been forecast for WEEKS, so folk should've planned for it and got stocked up, so that they wouldn't have needed to go out and buy anything else now, apart from emergency items.

    Problem is, few pay a blind bit of notice and simply think: 'I'll worry about it later', and only start to focus their attention on the situation when it's too late!

    Honestly, if we were snowed in and couldn't get out of the house for another two weeks, we'd have MORE than enough food and provisions to keep us going, so I don't see why other able-bodied people couldn't have achieved the same!

    Lol.... Got any powdered milk you could use, until you can get to the shops again?

    I'm being semi-serious, though. No-one *needs* milk to survive. Simply do without it for a few days, folks, until everything gets back to normal. It's not the end of the world!!
