Mixed reports as to how much snow we may get.

Just read an article before, claiming we're in for the most snow in 14 years. Arriving Tuesday. 

Shouldn't be a factor, but don't want the replay postponed.

I broke my ankle into about 3 million pieces during that snowfall 14 years ago!

....also 14 years ago since we appointed Owen Coyle.

Not sure what was worse luck :D

Got some real miles in this week.

Cold but so much more pleasant than the driving rain. 

Actually perfect to work in for me.

Dull, cold but not too cold and more importantly not a stitch of wind 💙

My brother went out just before Xmas for 3 and a bit weeks - he's said it's sweltering out there.

It's been roasting but dry heat until tonight and a massive storm has shown up and made it feel like being back in Nam

Centigrade or Fahrenheit?

I was going to be clever and respond ‘both’ but thought I’d check first.

within a degree… both.


edit - -40°F and -40°C is the meeting point of the two scales.

My sister is off to Quebec in 2 weeks, my nephew is representing GB in an ice hockey world championships 

It was -39 there yesterday.

They just crack on.

I searched for this, as a while back I saw a film where someone croaked following exposure of the lungs to damaging cold air.

Wasn't sure whether the film was accurate, but it seems it was.
