That's the 'suck' part I was talking about.

As you say, maybe the problem trees have been weeded out, and you'll get through ok from here on.

There's a video on youtube about the internet laughing at brits for being perturbed by a little snow.

Have you seen that picture Carruthers posted of the massive fucking snowdrifts in Cumbria?

My village got 15 inches of snow and windspeeds high enough to create snow drifts as tall as I am.

Full on blizzard conditions - a gritter truck got buried in snow in Wales - one couple spent hours buried in their car and a motorway full of people were stranded for 12 hours - heavy snow, deep drifts and 90 mph winds

I realise we have a tendency to over react to snow over here - given we don't get anywhere near as much as elsewhere and it doesn't last as long either - but the combination of the 'Beat from the East' and Storm Emma was full on.

The snow you got was a huge strain on your ability to keep calm and carry on, that baby would be a bitch anywhere. It's just get safe and wait, when subjected to that shit.

Yesterday about 5 inches of heavy wet stuff. Watching the voltmeter on my desk it was dancing all day. The power only went off once, long enough to kill the TV, microwave clock and turn on the livingroom touch lamp, but not kill my computer. I can live with that.

In the early hours of this morning we had a colossal thunderstorm.
This wasn't a muttered 'wossat?' and back to sleep.
This was the real Vincent Price emerging from the woodwork offering.
Fifteen thousand lightning strikes were recorded in, I think, an hour and the hydrant refuelling system at Stansted airport was put out of action after it was struck.

And now, as I type (2200), we're in the midst of a repeat performance.
I dare not look at the 60' conifer at the bottom of the back garden as I fear for its future as a tree. If you see what I mean.
The rain is torrential and the humidity is making me weary.
Anyway, we didn't lose the electricity supply last night so there's a better than evens chance we'll do so tonight.

Right. Wish me luck.

Find something sturdy and hang on.

Tightly.

The suburb we used to live in in Birmingham apparently just got more than a month's worth of rain in an hour and is underwater.

Here, it was 95F (35C)

Now it's dark and the temp has plummeted to an Arctic 27C/80F
