UK To Freeze Next Week? Are You Ready For 'The Beast From The East'
We are, apparently, expecting significant snowfall and very low temperatures early next week:
Link 1: London to freeze as 'beast from the East' weather front moves in - London - News - London Evening Standard
Link 2: BBC - Paul Hudson's Weather & Climate Blog: The Beast from the East is lurking
However the webmasters at the Met Office website don't seem to too worried about it with no warnings currently in force from today until Monday:

We won't get it. Even if Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Wilts and Hants get it - we probably won't..

We did a stocking up shop last week, I have a large box of blankets ready to use, a house plated with 6 inches of insulated render and rolls of insulation in the roof, I've duct taped the iffy DG window (hinges gone, so draughty), heavy velvet curtained the external doors, got all my 12v SLAs and backup car battery ready to go, inverter and leads all laid out for a power cut, candles, matches etc ready for the stove/gas fire (240v ignition WHY?), torches readied, animal food stocked up, and the old Bermuda boiler has no condensate to freeze, and laughs at cold anyway..Jems car has brand new rubber, I have my snow tyres on and my autosocks as well.
Come on if you're hard enough..

Don't forget to stock up on perishables. Bread and milk seem to be the favourites, as we all know that toast and milkshakes are the staple food during a snowstorm. I'm looking for pre-sliced apples, but not having much luck.

That is some thorough prep you have there. seems like you have been expecting bad weather for a while?

I will crank my heating up by a degree.

It looks like the same kind of start to those 2 bad winters we had a couple of years back. Late November/early December the temp plummeted and cooled down the land. Anything that came over after that was snow.
Could be another bad one, in which case I'll get myself off to Tesco and buy the kids a sled

I suppose I'm going to have to relent soon then and let her put the heating on.
