Freeze chaos to continue

This was the bold claim on the front of one of the papers when I bought petrol earlier. I assume this was a nod to the cold weather currently being experienced in the glorious north and elsewhere and suggests that it may continue to be cold. IT'S ****ING WINTER! IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE COLD. There is no chaos. Loads of people are off work so the roads are quiet. There's no snow so even BMW drivers aren't getting stuck. We drove to Malham and had a great walk to the cove and Goredale Scar. The sun shone and it was glorious. We didn't die because we have coats and hats and gloves. Why do our ****wit lying gutter press ********s have publish **** that just isn't true?

Dumb ass headlines sell to dumb ass punters.
These same rags make up shizz all he time. The classic being when digging dirt on a 'celebrity' and they proclaim a 'source' has had some defamatory remark which basically means they made it up because they prefer lazy journalism.

I use the term journalism loosely.

I might be responsible for this. I turned off our pond heater. Could that be what's sparked the "Freeze chaos to continue" panic in the Street of Shame?

Top rantage.


Catching up on Private Eye it looks like
the Torygraphy may be up for sale.

So expect more of this click-baity non story journalism. (A certain A. Banks could be in the running. )

White over yesterday, damp this morning, sunny this afternoon, rain expected on the early morning walk home later.

What the frigging hell is happening? Has the world gone crazy?

Temperate climates have something to answer for.

I haven't read anything about it in the papers yet, and I am outraged

Our local rag tried the " freeze chaos" line a couple of days ago over a few flakes of snow

Must be running out of stories

Local BBC news tonight reports snow, ice, rain and winter conditions over the weekend, with the footnote that "It may be slippy underfoot"

Phew.....may avoid A&E thanks to our gorgeous weather girl.

I feel sorry about your experience guys, but I think it's always better to be prepared for any sort of weather.
