I see your yellow warning and raise you a POLAR VORTEX:

Benson was the coldest place in the UK over the weekend in a sign of things to come as temperatures in Oxfordshire plunged below freezing.

Read it as yellow snow warning, which is something else entirely.

I don't understand how getting it wrong literally every year for decades is a viable approach. People are weird.

But...every year for decades? I mean, I get being easily swayed, and I get being misinformed - but knowing that your source has been wrong every single year, and plainly and obviously so, surely you stop believing that source?

Eh? A yellow warning is a short term "keep your eyes open" and the "polar vortex" is a journalist having fun with hyperbole you miserable joy sucking sods.

As well as warning us of the POLAR VORTEX about to hit the Shire, the Oxford Mail also informed us today about how frequently Blur's Alex James washes his hair. This stuff matters, people.

Feck it. I have to catch the 5.47 from Manchester to Newcastle tomorrow morning to collect a van, drive it to Pontefract to swap for another van, then drive THAT van back to Manchester. Digits crossed for no snow to screw up my day.

It was 2 degrees on my driveway this morning, according to the Fabia. This is relevant because I managed to lock myself out and had to wait on said driveway for half an hour. :facepalm: :'(

Chaos reigns as traffic gridlock and schools close!

I dropped Cagney off at nursery at 7.45 according to the sign in sheet and got to work at 9.10. so my commute was only 50℅ longer than usual. Conditions were OK but accidents on the motorways backed traffic up.

Directly to the east and west is the shit that holds the ends down so Leeds dies not blow away. So a man once told me.

Seriously, Liverpool to Hull is probably the border, anything above Skipton is Well North.

Parents house is white over (Yorkshire Dales) was very cold yesterday in Berkshire had to get the ice of the car for the first time in ages.

Today it rained hard from 4am, which showed me all the leaks I have to sort out in our clapped out conservatory :(

Now its sunny but not that warm.
