Minni v Dubai Dave
Simon - we had it bad in 2001. -17 here for more than a week. We were without electric for 4 days.
No electric for 4 days?
I once went without WIFI for 2 days and I thought that was bad enough!
It was in the days before forums so I coped!
Not taken by me but these are our hills today.
Some of us were teenagers in the Big Freeze of 63 [actually I was 12 but same difference]. Our school closed for half a day which was virtually unheard of in those days [before Health and Safety went mad and every one was sent home at the sign of the first snowflake]. We had feet of snow for months and were out on those sturdy wooden sledges you only see in old films now [e.g.Citizen Kane
We have heavy snow forecast for Friday with travel disruption warnings aleady being put out, so not confident about driving over 100 miles to Surrey for our event.
Jeez Minni - that's a lot of snow. I am meant to be driving to Buxton on Friday evening. I am starting to suspect it's not going to be a good plan!

It's the 27th isn't it?
Bliddy freezing again today. I'm working at home but really need to get to the gym for a run later.
2old - that really sucks...hope you get there soon!
Another pretty snow picture - working at home does have a better view out of the window than the office in London
That looks like absolutely beautiful running scenery Minni (minus the snow, of course), no wonder you eat up the hills.
Very bad news about the helicopter crash yesterday, must have been horrific to see.
2Old - hope you take off soon. If not, get off and head to Minni's neck of the woods as looks like you'll be able to do everything you want to there anyway.
I did 6M in to work this morning and was absolutely blimmin' freezing. No idea of temperature, but was very hard work breathing properly. Quite enjoyable though - Regents Park lake was completely frozen over. Got my Garmin back yesterday so am going to do a few of my regular routes to see how depressingly off fitness I am compared to this time last year!
As for the wagon... I'm not so much going to fall off of it tonight, more be pushed off of the side, run over by it, and then it'll reverse back for good measure. It's our work internal awards do, which is always raucous in the extreme, and a free bar... They do say if you're going to do something, you might as well do it properly.
Must remember to stay awake on the train. Must remember to stay awake on the train. Must remember to stay awake on the train...
Red - you'll get your fitness back quickly I'm sure. Just great that you are running again.
I'm actually still on the wagon! 13 days and counting Buxton trip postponed, 18 miles on the treadmill is starting to look like a real possibility on Sunday
stunning pics Freemers & Minni
still no snow here - but im not complaining having seen the impact to Spoons' journey's and everyones training!
canned my early run as when i woke up my legs were quite sore - particulary the shins - despite feeling great during and post last nights run Will get out later but will keep it real easy
still on the wagon for me - day 17!
Im still quite heavy according to the scales but i can see some visible changes to shape so hopefully the weight will catch up soon!
Oh yes, Freemers, its the 27th! Sorry!
2old - hope you get away.
I'm supposed to be coaching at running club tonight but I'm about to cancel it....
Stunning photos, if you like snow. Nothing here yet but meant to get some tomorrow. Week of cold early morning running, 7 slow yesterday and 6 steady this morning which felt tough but managed 7:21 avg.
2old - Enjoy the trip, when you get there.Lots of ski kit overloaded the plane?
Brol - Good jawb getting the training in while away, must be great running in the snow when dark.
Red - Enjoy the free bar, get yourself home safe, don't want to get stranded with the big load of snow tonight/tomorrow.
Ant - I've got 18 planned for the weekend so could be joining you on the tready if the gym is open.
Made it to the gym and back - main roads OK but side roads quite treacherous! Nice session though - 5 mins @ 7.30's / 5 mins @ 7.00's, repeat for 45 minutes, plus w/u and c/d. I feel a lot better for doing that
I'm down for 20 on Sunday. I'm psyching myself up for doing it on the treadmill.
A balmy -5.5 degrees in the car today
