Well I DO NOT believe 'little reptiles' under ground are causing an ice age to wipe us out ???!!

However

I do know someone high up in emergency planning and they are attending a 'secret' National meeting concerning the 'change' in the UK..

It might just be related to logistics and fuel running out in certain areas but there is more warning of continual weather which will keep this going and actually probably prove another Poster on ATS (Snow Joke for uK Thread) Correct. They claimed that there will be a breakdown in the supply chain for food, cash, fuel as we simply can't seem to adapt to prolonged cold weather anymore....

There is also a school of thought suggesting a 'change' in the weather patterns, over the past couple of years which , by the time we realise may just have become reality...

This emergency meeting though has alot of importance being placed on it and maybe they know something we don'..??

Regards

You don't get anywhere near what we get in the mountains of Calif.
I have seen 10 foot of snow from one storm.

They claimed this last summer was the hottest on record.
Now its looking like this winter may be the coldest.

I know where i live in the Calif desert its been below normal for two weeks now.

Wow OP you're either a pretty good troll or extremely paranoid and ignorant.

UK winters have been pathetic over the last 10 years. It appears as though things are heading back to how it used to be, hopefully we will learn how to deal with it properly as well how to laugh at the doom and gloom media reports of 'treacherous' weather conditions.

I would offer to eat my hat if it's still snowy in June but if that's the case then I will probably need a hat so you will have to make do with a hearty 'I told you so'.

Thank You!!!!



That video is fabulous - so brings back memories!

@Mike - I can remember 17ft in places in Hampshire in 1953 or there abouts. (Yes that is a five)

Well they seem to have missed my little bit of the UK and I am only some 40 minutes away from London.

We only had a light dusting last night (despite the fact that heavy snow was forecast) and this was thawing by 8.30am and have had nothing more since. We are due to go down to -5 tonight and tomorrow the high will be -4. However, this forecast will probably change in the next few hours to something completely different - like the 10cm we were expecting locally last week which appears to have got lost in Surrey.

Well sorry to ruin your fun guys but I highly dout this being the start of a ice age. I'm sure any British person would agree with me when I say as soon as Britain has a bit of snow the country useless but this is only because our weather is so inpridictable but we cope. And as for the amount of snow I'm really not worried I remember back in the 90s when I was about 4-5years old when the snow was deeper than it is now.
People just like to spread fear for no reason. And I live in Kent and if you look we were meant to be a hard hit area and I drove yesterday with no trouble and today.

It's all hyped up fuss!

Hi PuterMan,

actually I'm originally from that region and we lived there until the late 1950s. And yes, my parents told me how cold it was then... Back in those days, my Dad was a bobby in a seaside area not far from Portsmouth. He told me of a winter when he was out on his "beat" in the wee hours and the surf had frozen along the sea front. He saw a thermometer inside a shop window that read minus nine degrees (F). This was in 1958 or '59.

Looks like things could just be moving back to the way they used to be. I expect that most people will adapt without any major difficulties.

Mike

Yes it is all hyped which in itself in dangerous as when it really does snow no one is prepared, they just assume when more snow has been forecasted it wont arrive just like it did last time and the one before that.

If we had information about the actual road conditions rather than a vague weather warning at county level then we can better judge our response and whether to risk going out or not. We get advised not to go out and then get slated for following that advice when the forecast is wrong.

I live in a valley and the hills can be particulary trechrous even those that are bus routes. I also live in a cul de sac where I cannot see te local main roads so it it very hard to tell.

well us in Pompey have had about 5 inches last night, depending on where you are so not quite like 1953? I'm only 16 so i don't really know much of winter.

I traveled from Liverpool to London today by train and on the whole journey I never saw anywhere with more than a few inches of snow.

Give it another six months and everyone will be complaining about it being too hot!

It's a British thing, we just like to moan about the weather!

After a second read of the OP I'm voting troll. No one intelligent enough to use the word 'orchestrated' in context would be dumb enough to believe this... surely...

You'd better never come spend a winter in Buffalo, New York if you think that's bad

Unfortunatly, this is only the start. The scenes in the UK wil this weekend spread to europe, and eventually the U.S and Canada.

The rest of the world will be covered by mid may.


Canada, already done. Early snow this year for the west coast, for the prairies, same as usual. It came down mid October, and will be here until summer. Last year was from October to May, with the ground still freezing until the end of June, which made gardening season really suck.

It would be really disappointing to have less of a summer than last year.

Although, if it stayed below freezing we'd have no mosquitoes.

We're ready here, farmers are everywhere with every kind of tractor and plow you can think of.

I just hate it when every year they tell us it's going to be colder, when we always get -40 to -50 anyways. Last year I think the coldest windchill was in Alberta (not sure though) around -58 celcius.


They did say on the news tonight that Europe and the UK are breaking records, actually the coldest ever recorded. Now between the jet stream behaving differently (there's a thread somewhere), and the gulf stream maybe messed up from the oil gusher, the solar minimum......
I think I'm going to need some better winter wear.
