An artic blast has hit the East Coast. Scarbados is a sledger's delight at the moment. You only have to travel 17 miles inland to see clear roads yet Scarborough is covered in an icy coat of snow. The roads have been treacherous and the pavements even worse. Falling in this weather is only for young bones, which might be able to stand the impact of concrete. It is not something many of us would recover from without a battered ego and bruised butt!
Paul Hudson reported* it's been the 6th coldest recorded December since records started in 1772. So there's no wonder we are seeing people saying they are not making any unnecessary journeys, more broken boilers are being reported (there's been two in our family), lots of burst pipes (one in the family) and the scary massive increase in heating bills.
Thank goodness there's Christmas decorations to cheering us up a little and the hope of some time off over Christmas. We've bought the Radio Times in anticipate of some good entertainment and escapism TV over Christmas.
