Snow - Already....

I`m surprised that no plusnet customers have reported this on the forum.... must be some down the west country?  or did they all lose their connection due to MBOC ?

Re: Snow - Already....

I was actually out walking all day in the New Forest and although it was a bit cold at 4 deg C it was a lovely sunny day.
The only problem was that it was flooded everywhere. We had to make a major diversion as the footbridge over the Beaulieu River near Ashurst was completely submerged.
In fact while driving to the start I had to drive through a major flood about 100 yds long and so deep the exhaust pipe was submerged - it is amazing what you can get away with by keeping the revs up and slipping the clutch.
Admittedly this was in a Honda Jazz so that only makes it about 9ins deep

Not too bad tonight, but clear skies Monday, lots of Sun, and very cold Monday overnight.
West of the Pennines.

Last year I insulated the outlet (condensate ?) pipe from my Combi Boiler, it didn't freeze up last Winter, like it did the Winter before.

Don't eat the Yellow Snow !
The weather forecasters keep stating there's a Yellow Snow Warning, but it's never this one !

Re: Snow - Already....

We had snow a couple of weeks ago, but only a light covering and it was gone quickly, so nowt to comment on really.
Its NOVEMBER and it is snowing why am I not surprised.

Excellent.  Our airports are supposed to have bought machinery to cope with bad weather this year. Time will tell Undecided
