    Yep I think it will be a cold un. Can't make up my mind whether it will be easier, same or worse though. Part of me things worse, but that is a gut feeling so not based on anything except my cynical nature!

    I'm already wearing a hat now when I walk to work. I don't usually end up wearing one until at least mid November, so I expect it'll be a harsh winter this year!

    Someone did tell me a month or so ago, that we could have snow from about late october or early november, and it could be as much as we did in Jan!
    That was fun that morning - the bottom of my car was scraping the snow as I, stupidly, tried to get to work.. gave up after witnessing 2 White vans and a Land Rover failing to get up a hill..

    It can't be that cold, we haven't even put the heating on at home yet.

    Heating went on last night, we have hardly any wind at the moment but the air is getting towards bitter. Makes me lean towards a harsher one then last year!

    The weather is only going to get worse, after all, heat is energy. We are heating up the atmosphere so putting more energy into the weather system. It is all to be expected. Just wait until the gulf stream stops and we run out of oil. We are well and truly screwed!

    heating went on in our house 2 days ago. if i open the windows it gets cold quickly in the office where i sit,


    My prediction (and i'm no weatherman),

    Late November we'll see snow somewhere in the county (england),
    A white Christmas,
    and a hot summer next year.

    I can't believe my Mrs has just emailed me to say she's put the heating on. Why she can't put a jumper on and do some star jumps is beyond me. Heating? In October? Whatever next?

    Next you'll be suggesting that she tie pieces of carpet to the bottom of your feet rather than laying carpet throughout the house, a la 'Viz'.

    Yes but if we lay carpet, it stops the free heat coming up from the flat downstairs ... lol

    Weird, you're in Northants. Did you move from Yorkshire by any chance?

    I was going to buy a Discovery last winter (prior to the snow). Before the bad weather hit you could get a 2003 Discovery with 60k on the clock and FSH for about 5-6k. After December the price went up to almost 10k! I got a Lexus RX300 instead for 5k
