This week's cold weather has seen the Met Office issue its first England-wide Level 3 Cold Weather Alert of the winter.

The Met Office Cold Weather Alert service supports the Cold Weather Plan developed by the Department of Health, the Health Protection Agency, blah, blah, quango, blah, nanny state.

It's winter, it will be cold.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

People are advised to stay indoors, and on no account go outside.

THERE IS GOING TO BE ICE.

Yep, ICE.

That's frozen water to those born during the Global Warming years or educated under New Labour.

They are paid shit load of money to do this. THey have got to show some productivity and this winter has been too mild. They have got to take advantage of some surprise snowy conditions.

Maybe I should have replaced the made in Romania retreads on my van. #1 son reports his winter tyres are brilliant but I'd rather risk serious death than spend 4x80 quid +VAT.

There is a 100% probability [oooh, sticking their necks out] of severe cold weather and icy conditions between 1000 on Monday and 1000 on Friday [big time scale though] in parts [ffs] of England.

Get it right...

If we have a hot spell in Summer, that is called 'global warming'.
If we have a cold spell in winter, that is called 'weather'.

I love the list of regions with the percentages under the alert.

Least it makes it an easy news week.

Good job you don't live over here then, it being mandatory an all.

Are the summer tyres put in storage to be swapped back when it warms up?

BTW in London and the South East the weather isn't consistently cold enough in Winter which screws up the idea of getting winter tyres.

It's no good...the suspense is killing me.

Is there a word for "The fear of impending graphs"?
