It's the same garbage that gets trotted out every year, I think it was last year we were set to have a snowmageddon in October, ended up being a heat wave, horror winter story = slow news day.

i can remember years ago the snow was up past your eyeballs in places, we had no central heating just a coal fire downstairs, we slept under so many blankets..(not Duvets) but big thick, usually hand made Blankets that literally pinned you down to the bed such was the weight of the damned things.

If we wanted to quench our thirst during the night we would use the car jack provided and push the quilts up and snap a icicle of the steel window frame and crawl back to bed with our H2o lollipop...you know what..?
We still got up in the morning, Alive.!!!
We would just grab a snowball from the window ledge and washed our faces, have some porridge or ReadyBreak if you were posh, and headed off to school wrapped up in our many layers..
with our Badly knitted Balaclava's..(out we we were sent) with matching mittens with the string that ran through the sleeves of your dufflecoat..(well i was told it was a dufflecoat, but i have a sneaking suspicion it was a modified WWII Trench coat) attaching each Mitten just in case you lost them...

Didn't matter, as my mum could rattle off those mittens and hats in about 2 hours flat...
Never felt itch like it though...who knows what poor mans wool was made of back then..?

No Gortex snowboots back then either...Wellies, 4-10 pairs of socks depending on who's turn it was for the Wellies that day...Yeah, we didn't have much, but you know what, we were tough and resilient back then. snow 10 feet deep was seen as a exciting challenge back in the day...

So bring it on. us old timers knew this ice age was going to happen in our lifetime...we were the original preppers, Snow?...Pffft, i fart in your general direction.

It's a nasty, sick hoax (which, sadly, many people, especially the elderly, already worrying about higher energy bills, will fall for because they think if it's in the papers it must be true - makes you wonder what the real motive behind these lies really is .....
)

There are NO forecasts for a severe winter this year - Nathan Rao's (Express story inventor) mates Jonathan and James are NOT meteorologists, and they say the same every winter. In 2011 James Madden aka 'Exacta' was predicting snow starting in October ...... the made up story was published just days before a record heatwave! Needless to say, our 8th warmest October in 100 years did not include record breaking snow fall ....

Last year was the same ....

Sure, we'll get some cold and snowy weather this winter. But there are NO indications of anything out of the ordinary, let alone a winter to rival 1947!!!!!

Piers Corbyn on the other hand to my mind, has a proven track record


No he doesn't - he's just as bad!

For example, see my comments on his false claim to have predicted the St Jude's Day storm:

Hmmph.... This story plus the one about the Vikings end of the world warning is just odd.
The Viking prophecies supposedly brings 3 years of winter starting February 22.
I'm starting to think its all a stunt. Cry wolf enough times then the sheeple would fall back asleep.

The Express story is just a stunt to make money - it's a proven fact that stories like this, even when completely fictional - result in more newspaper sales. The man making a fortune out of scaring the elderly and infirm is Richard Desmond (multi-milionaire owner of the Express and Star 'news'papers). A very nasty piece of work

I've come to the conclusion that we should get into the habit of prepping for every winter like it's going to be the worst for a century, and if it's not, then we're still fine. Whatever happens, being stocked up and wrapped up will make like less stressful anyway. It will be easier to keep warm, we will spend less time and money getting the groceries we need, and might get away with a quick trip to the local shops for a few things than a massive expedition to Tesco in 4 feet of snow cos we've run out of everything.

Make sure you have enough tea bags, candles, matches, loo roll, books, and store cupboard food, first aid kit (and painkillers etc), batteries, a torch that actually works, cosy blankets or the wool to crochet one or two if you're snowed in, wellies, dogfood, thermal vests, trapper hats, toothpaste, art supplies (maybe that's just me), and fuel for the fire/stove/firepit on the patio. Think about how you might cook something warm and make tea if there is no power. Somehow, we can cope with anything as long as we can get a cup of tea, and it's amazing how inventive a power cut makes you. Better if you've given it a run in your head though. Try cooking a curry in a frying pan over a coal fire, just for the hell of it...I did it...was yummy, but a wee bit slow!
If you don't have an open fire, then seriously think about a firepit outside...at least you will be able to cook *something*. A wee wireless helps too...no power means no internet and possibly no phones. And rock salt for the doorstep or path or steps to the house. Keep the snow shovel in the house and not in the shed at the bottom of the garden...useful if there really is 4 feet of snow.
If you're prepared for this, then the weather forecast can do what it likes...it's usually completely wrong anyway.

Having been raised on Dickens at Christmas time in the US, I have always pictured London being socked in with snow at the Holiday season and yet everyone continued to gather in the streets, commute, come and go, celebrate, burn coal to stay warm and toasty... What happened?

An overnight low of Zero Celsius isn't really that cold. Try minus 50 with a windchill of minus 70!

It's what you're used to.
Few homes have central heating there. Unless they do now?

If it snows lots it will insulate your home and keep it warmer.

Stock up on what you can. Food & water, torches, batteries, candles, matches, radio etc. in case of power outage. Stay off the roads because of oeople not knowing how to drive in snow.




Its now that They do not know how to drive. Its that in order to have the things in their lives, one must Not miss a day of work! Go to work slaves, off to work you go!

If one can not take a day off, risking others and yourself Lives driving in the crap, you need another job! Just think on how much pain would be saved if say a 4 ft snow came and everybody was home! In half the day the streets would be cleared, no problems for the ones doing this and it gives to a chance to remove the snow off the car too. By that time the days 1/2 over anyway so might as well enjoy a cup of tea and watch it snow!

Small note: Its going to be a hell of a winter! Everywhere, sorry had to say it though.

Dicken's idea of Christmas was based on his childhood when snow was a bit more common than it is today. Typically, Christmas in Britain is grey, mild and wet.

Such a romantic notion, the olden days when Brits were tough and solid, able to survive even the harshest nature could throw their way. I suppose with so many 'transplants' moving in, things have changed.

Well, that would go along with the Viking Apocolypse Prediction -

I think maybe the Viking Doom porn Armageddon thing is a little too much...but I can kinda see where they're going with it. My instincts, for what it's worth, are telling me that this is going to be a bad one, and to be very well prepared...for some reason, I feel December will be bad, and on into early February. My prepping instincts are so strong, we're on the point of moving house because of it, and my usually cautious other half is totally on board, which is maybe a lot more worrying.

No, just reality. Back in the early 19th century, winters were, on average, colder/snowier than they are today.

When you say 'they' you do realise that these are people who make up stories for money? They say what they are paid to say by newspapers who print whatever story they thing will produce the most sales, with no reagrds as to whether it is very slightly true, an outright lie or just complete fantasy.

Further to this, in regard to how cold it used to get, the Thames froze over on multiple occasions:

Now that would be funny if it happened nowadays, London grinds to a halt on about 1cm of snow, the results would be hilarious...
