It doesn't show signs of stoppin'


Terrified Britons are frantically preparing for today’s icy blast by already having everything they need to comfortably survive it.

Forecasters have warned the only way to protect yourself from the ‘Beast from the East’, forecast to bring temperatures down to -15ºC with up to eight inches of snow, is to continue behaving as normal.

Meteorologist Helen Archer said: “You don’t even have to turn the heating up. Just leave it on.

“Pretend to be terrified of some snow if you like. But we all know that by 7pm you’ll be inside looking at it through double-glazing sipping a hot drink and wearing a t-shirt.”

“It’s basically as if a zombie apocalypse was approaching, but everyone already had impregnable zombie-proof fortresses and fully-functioning anti-zombie suits.”


Susan Traherne of Ipswich said: “I haven’t got any gloves, so there is a real danger I could lose one or more fingers to frostbite.

“But then it turns out they sell them in the shops.”

Of course.

Yes, there have been a few nasty snow flurries. Yes, it's cold. But, Hell's Bells! It is only February. Get a grip.

On this Tacky Music Monday, I have made a new "diva discovery" - which always delights me more than words can say - and not just one, but three of 'em! Ignore the Xmassy theme of this video [you try and find a version of this song that doesn't involve tinsel'n'baubles...] - and enjoy this appropriate number from the Gospel Queens:


Have a good week, dear reader, and grab a few snow-balls...

  1. And we're the opposite...we have deep dense fog like your Londontown....and very mild temps. Me thinks I should break up the square cut.

    1. According to the tabloids, this is "the beast from the east" , which implies we are getting Putin's revenge... I somehow doubt that kind of weather would cross the Atlantic easily.

      Never mind all that, those Gospel Queens certainly know how to warm things up! Jx

  2. It's not winter until you're wearing snow pants.

    1. I don't want "Layers of Despair", thank you. I'd rather move to Spain. Jx

    2. Cripes! I can't imagine The Very Mistress wearing that get-up. Unless those fleece-lined leggings were stripy, of course...

    3. One would hope that "The Look" over at Chez Mistress was not "Womble"... Jx

    4. That is, in fact, the LOOK of a Canadian winter and it's not pretty. I've saved that image to use in a post next year, thank you.

  3. "grab a few snow-balls" - I'd settle for just grabbing some furry man balls...
