Unfortunately due to an overcrowded seasonal calendar, summer may have to be cancelled completely yet again...

'tis true... I read it here!

I reckon I could make several decent-sized Snowmen from the steady accumulation of snow in my verandah. It's deep and crisp and even.

It's not a Siberian storm or an Arctic blizzard even a spell of severe winter weather.

It's an "unprecedented snow event" (BBC News tonight).

Why do they dream up this gobbledegook?

Why do they dream up this gobbledegook?

They get paid a lot of money hence the pending increase in the licence fee.

Well, it's bloomin cold here and the snow doesn't look like stopping, roll on summer !

You'll have to excuse the poor picture, wind was blowing snow in my face and I'm no David Bailey at the best of times.

I'm right in the middle of this so-called red zone and haven't even had enough to cover the garden path.

This is a doddle compared with 1947 , went to school even though no heating and milk frozen with white columns sticking up from bottles. Google images of your area for winter of 1947. One example

Even in 62 the sea was frozen at Newquay.

I want to drive to Newcastle on M5 M42 Ma A1.. It is very difficult to get accurate info on state om motorways so if any of you live on or near this route, what do you think of my chances. Leaving Exeter on M5. Many thanks.

Quickbeam, I told you the snow was really deep, can you not see the West Highland White Terrier in the middle of the road? ;o}}
