MORE GLOBAL WARMING NEWS. 2MOROZ HEADLINE TONIGHT ….  BIG ANNOUNCMENT!!!!!!

No kidding people. It is so darn cold it takes the breath away.  So why are some folks walking or jogging with no hat or coat or gloves and wearing shorts? And a T-shirt. Jeesh ...

It was a beautiful, bright and cold day, hardly anything melted and I suspect the weather has put a damper on the construction of the house next door. GOOD!

There was ice on the inside of the window in the upstairs window early this morning, and according to the reports, we are in for more severe weather.

We got mail delivery today, in good weather the guy uses a bike. They still use those here to deliver mail and don’t laff cos it works okay.  If they aren’t on srrike.

Things like milk,eggs,butter and bread and a host of other things are delivered to the door by our local (sort of) dairy.  My BIG worry, and it is a big one, is the chance of freezing pipes.  Especially since the water supply that cuts across the propert next door, is not buried very deep at the point it joins our property. The reason being, they dug out a LOT of the top soil going down about a foot at least thus uncovering our supply. So, currently where it joins our line but still on their side, a small section of pipe is covered by some fiberglass insulation and a bit of dirt.  A tiny portion of the insulation can be seen but it’s covered with snow and ice at the moment.  What fun.

Anyway, I think if anything was going to freeze it would have been last night.  So maybe we were lucky. So far.

Britain faces coldest night of winter as five die in Big Freeze and temperatures plummet to -20C

Britain is facing the coldest night of the winter so far tonight as the death toll from the freezing weather rises still further.

A sports fan attending the televised World Darts Championships has become the latest victim of the UK’s plummeting temperatures as the Arctic blast tightens its grip.

The man, believed to be in his 40s, was found dead under the ice in a lake at the world-famous Lakeside Country Club in Surrey.

Temperatures are expected to drop to lower than -20C in the Scottish Highlands tonight, following lows of -17.7C in Benson, Oxfordshire and -15C in Manchester overnight.

Among casualties as heavy snow turned to ice was a 16-year-old boy killed after the car he was travelling in crashed on the A1 near Richmond, North Yorkshire.

The teenager and his mother are believed to have been making their way to the hard shoulder after colliding with the central reservation when they were struck by a lorry.

Dwindling gritting stocks were also reaching crisis point as a series of accidents on some major routes added to difficulties for millions of drivers.

Forecasters have predicted sub-zero temperatures beyond the weekend, which could mean more of the snowstorms that brought large parts of the country to a standstill yesterday.

----------> W That’s about where Winchester is and we’re just slightly to the left.  Things about maps here drive us nuts because every time a map is shown in weather news or even political news, they NEVER but NEVER (well, hardly ever) show Winchester. England’s first capitol city.
Some years ago the maps used to read SouthCentral also and Winchester was there.  Since they quit printing that, we’ve disapppeared.
They know where you are at tax time however.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
