    SO - guard you life, stock up like your going to die, say goodbye to loved ones, keep warm, conserve any form of energy if possible !

    Dont go out, DONT drive your car, dont cycle,

    in fact dont do anything as its going to last for 200yrs












































    Weather forecasters believe it'll only last a week ! ;) - but the media will hype it to hell just for the hell of it ! xx(

    I reckon it's snowed here properly about twice in the 7 years I've lived in Bristol. I won't be holding my breath...

    Could this be the end of Global-warming as we know it?

    Agree with what you say about the frequency of snow around Bristol but even the hint of a snowflake normally means the road system around here grinds to a halt.

    To be honest I'd really like a heavy fall of snow. My 6 year old daughter has never really seen much snow (not any thats been pitching anyway).

    It's all my fault I'm afraid - I've just serviced a couple of my motorbikes and thought about putting one of them on the road:sad:

    Very true. Although I'd look forward to the satisfaction of sailing past all the cars on my MTB. I've noticed that the locals panic a lot at the sign of a snowflake - I remember getting up early, scraping the car, driving slowly to work, to be greeted by an empty office!

    I washed my motorbike down at the weekend, is it my fault? Can I get chains for 700c wheels as I may well need to out tomorrow to get some shopping.

    ;) Global warming seems to have missed Oswestry.
    I have lived here now for twelve months and last January I witnessed the most snow I've seen in 25 years!
    Since then it's been cold, even in midsummer. Someone should tell the forecasters. They seem to be the only one's out of the loop!!!xx(:ohmy:!

    Snow eh?

    Will the interweb still work? I may send some pictures in to Sky News, accompanied by a message making it clear I don't know what I'm talking about:biggrin:

    Looks like everywhere else is going to cop it especially down sarth.
