Get ready folks

It seems the weather forecasters are worried and actually preparing us for horrendous weather! Get your fuel and food supplies organised now, don’t wait!! Not sure much snow will get us too early, more concerned about later in the week!

Dig out your thick woolies and socks and blankets, hats gloves and coats. The wind chill will make it feel like -15C towards the end of the week with daytime temperatures around -5C.

If you use oil for central heating and are getting low, get it topped up. Get logs in, others ready and organise newspapers and boxes of kindling. If they are right, you won’t want to be hanging around outside chopping wood.

Soup is a real winner, make it, add some kick to it to help make you feel warm.

Are you ready?

  1. As I type this we have snow falling here in the East Midlands. I've been out to feed the birds and break the ice in the bird bath, have moved the potted outdoor hyacinths into the greenhouse and now I won't be going out again! Absolutely freezing today❄❄❄. Even my sensitive teeth caught some cold air!!

    1. Early on seems to be Scotland, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire. More the end of the week for us, possibly!

    2. We woke up on Tuesday to heavy falling snow, an already thick covering and ungritted silent road ... absolutely gorgeous.

      Thank goodness for all my ticks 😊

  4. Oil OK, Wood OK, LPG OK although it doesn't like cold weather so may have to cover the cylinders. Food OK.......... all this preparation ...I hope that the real thing isn't an anti climax although if it is I won't mind. (That makes no sense but I know what I meant when I started to write it!)
    Sitting in sun in living room while writing this and it is lovely and warm

    1. We have drained and switched off outside taps as well. Won’t be the first time they haven’t quite predicted it correctly but maybe?

  5. Thanks for the reminder. The snow shovel is not propped up by the French window. We've had a bit but not all that much and I should be able to dig my way to the shed if necessary.

  8. No snow here yet but I'm always ready. We've had temps as low as -8 here lately so not too worried by the forecast.
