We tend not to take a great deal of notice of our local weather forecast as it always seems slightly out. The main weather forecast always seems different for whatever reason.
However, both seem to be talking about snow. Now we live in quite a dip in so called flat Norfolk, but anyone who cycles will know, Norfolk isn't flat. It tends to get confused in places with Cambridgeshire which is flatter, in particular, the Fens.
This snow, if it arrives, will coincide with our main shopping day. To be safe, we are popping out to get just a few items that we are quite low on. We went out the other day to top up our meat which was almost non-existent and I could kick myself for not thinking about these items then.
Time will tell if they have the forecast right. It could be a little or quite a lot (for us that is). The last good and deep amount of snow, about 9" was in 1994, before that, 1987 when we had between 2' and 3'.
1987 was also the year when we had huge 'swords' of ice hanging from the gutters as the snow slowly melted and refroze every night for weeks. Our village was also cut off for a couple of weeks and the village store was emptied as people panic bought. It was also the year of the hurricane!
