A hard winter to come?

I've heard tales, read articles and seen tweets that point to a long-lasting and early arriving hard winter for the UK.

Don't shoot the messenger:)

The Express published a story yesterday claiming that this coming winter will be the hardest in 35 years due to a phenomenon called the Polar Vortex.

The Met Office have today issued a severe weather warning.

Hortech have been gritting some sites from Birmingham up into Scotland.

There's even been snow in Paris today. Is anyone making provisions for an abnormal weather event?

    Snow has arrived in Leeds ,West Yorkshire 5.15 am , It's pretty heavy , It's early so it might clear but from where i am sitting peering out the window it looks relentless .

        It's cleared up here now apart from rain , had to postpone a job yesterday owing to the snow but shredding branches today under cover . 

        Yes i recall Paul saying snow for some but not all , lets him off the hook lol but i am sure he said last night the A1 was clear but he was probably referring to driving conditions . Hope you have a better day .
