Yesterday it was 5C now -10C tomorrow morning -28C (with wind) and more then 1M of snow 1hr north of me. It is a big storm but I hope I only get a few cm of snow. I have stacked extra fire wood inside...if I don't loose electric power I will be warm:)

I heard there will be a terrible weather in your area. We were expecting a hurricane here about 2 months ago, I moved everything from the balcony, filled a tank with water, taped down the lids of the wheely bins outside, etc. but the whole thing was a just 2 hours little bit of breaze.

So I'm hoping that it wont be as drammatic as expected. Or if you do get burried by the snow at least I wish you to have a good mains, net connection and see you at spawn :)

Looks like I missed the snow (or it missed me) but the high temp today was -16C. Someone at work just left for home after getting a call about frozen water pipes:( A hurricane, that must not happen often in the UK.

We are shut down at work until Jan. 28 for maintenance so I drag home pretty tired. I do hope to see you at spawn very soon.

Glad that you missed the snow but sad that I missed you at spawn. I was mostly in bed in the recent days as I'm still not 100% well. I would suggest you Mike to send me a Skype message before you join the server because I never see you on Skype and at the moment I am more flexible in time than you.

UK's last hurricane was in 1987: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Storm_of_1987
Indeed it doesn't happen often but we are expecting another gale soon. The last one was a month ago and flooded a part of Hull, South Yorkshire (the other side of the river from my town).

Hi Guys hope you are fine with this hard weather, i heared from the ice cold US and the stormy UK. The weather is crazy, here too. Few Days ago we have had +15 C and sunny, so i was out only in T-Shirt not long time but was able. Seemed for few days the spring comes early this year. This is not normal. Good that now its getting colder. At Monday i ll go for 1 Week skiing to Austria with Family. If i return i ll be back on spwan again . Greetings Yours Marc

Hold on Mike you have half done. If its cold in germany we trink hot mulled wine until our noses are red like rudolph the reindeer. And on your oven you can make cheese fondue but don´t forget the cherry spirit :-)
