    Default Storm Caroline to hit Scotland followed by snow for wider UK

    "Southerners: Baton down the hatches, cancel all trains and stock up with bread and milk.

    Northerners: You'll need your big coat."

    - so true


    The UK's next named storm has been forecast to hit Scotland on Thursday.
    Storm Caroline is expected to see winds gusting to 80mph near north-facing coasts, and reaching speeds of 60 to 70mph more widely in northern and north east Scotland.
    The Met Office warned that the conditions could disrupt travel.
    Snow and freezing temperatures have been forecast for Scotland, England, Northern Ireland and Wales on Friday and Saturday in the wake of Caroline.
    The two previous named storms were Aileen in September and Brian in October.
    A yellow "be aware" warning is in place for Scotland between 08:00 and 23:55 on Thursday.
    Yellow warnings have also been issued by the Met Office for 00:05 Friday to 18:00 Saturday.

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Should make the drive down from Edinburgh a little more interesting on Thursday night
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    Used to be a lovely drive - which way do you go? For Manchester, I varied between through Biggar, down the A7 or through the hills to Moffat. Obviously if you're down t'Yorkshire then A1's a no-brainer.

    I tend to do the 702. Did the bit through Moffat once and it takes too long. The road out through Biggar is ok if you can get a good run. It's a nightmare if you are stuck behind something slow and people who won't overtake stuff!
