Holy shit, it was a sweet shop...

In the 1930s the tower was open to the public and contained a sweet shop; this closed at the outbreak of the Second World War and the tower entrance was bricked up.

Heard i would Trek all the way up there for sweets, I'd sooner go without.

It's pretty much perfect in Oz right now; highs of 32 or so but still nice and cool at night. It's too hot in December and January and you just end up sat inside with the air con on, but at the moment it's perfect for long simple suppers in the garden with a good book and a glass of wine.

Winter is actually surprisingly cold....well, cool anyway, but you do acclimatise amazingly swiftly to the point where anything below 15 degrees is 'cold'. The vast majority of houses have no heating system at all though and 6 degrees on a winter morning with no heating is cold whoever you are .

I do miss that feezing Edinburgh sleet sometimes though......no wait, I mean I never miss it at all, not even for a second

I think the British people just get on with it, yeah it's cold but you still need to go to work/college/school, don't you? As long as you have a warm coat, hat, scarf, boots and gloves it's okey. But I don't like snow or ice, I tend to fall over in it a lot

Really? In my experience of Winter in Britain, whenever someone so much as smells snow, everything shuts down.

I'm beginning to think putting a hot water bottle in the car at night might help to keep the frost off.  Yes/No?

Apparently Newcastle has hogged most of it at the moment as a mate told me last night she drove home from work in a blizzard and it was coming down thick and fast.   Flipping selfish that it, keeping it all to themselves.......

Nothing here in Manchester. Although I'm due to go to sheffield tomorrow and a bit worried about negotiating "Snake Pass" if we get snow overnight.

Best of luck to you. Last time I went on that was a couple of years ago, mum was driving. Took that detour to avoid a massive pile up on the motorway. Its wild as shit, drive safe, and slow!

I'll be driving really slow as its supposed to be well below freezing overnight so probably ice everywhere.

You want to house swap?

After forecasts of, at most, light snow flurries, after an inch or so night before last we've now had about 4 inches so far today. It's still heavy and the village is on its way to being snowed in. I frakkin' hate the stuff

We got snow on Friday evening, but whats left is all iced over now. By sheer coincidence my shoes broke on Friday evening, so I headed out to pick up some apt boots that would see me thru the winter on Saturday morning, only to find my local Decathlon (an outdoor pursuits superstore) reminiscent of a scene from a disaster film. People were panic buying and hoarding in the extreme.

I need to go to Sainsburys to get my rolls for my lunch during the week and am fearing the worst (finding the shelves empty as everyone stockpiles for the impending (but not likely) snow

It's absolutely freezing (genuinely) here in Surrey and it doesn't have the decency to snow! If it's this cold it might as well snow to make it more bearable. Still I'm feeling rather christmassy for no apparent reason due to the cold.

How much snow do we have here?

Normally the council leaves our cul de sac to rot - half the cars are snowed in because they can't get to a clear road to drive. For only the 3rd time in 8 years - including a couple of weeks virtually snowed in earlier this year - the gritter has just gone past. People are standing in their driveways in shock
