Winter.

A right load of bollocks...

Winter.

Postby Rolluplostinspace » Tue Oct 13, 2020 4:39 pm

Are you ready for a cold one …. a very cold one?
The wooly jumpers are out the hot water bottles the big boots coats gloves and hats and the logs coal and gas are in.
Before a serious lockdown happens I need to get whiskey and wine in.
I need to get yeast too as I'm going to go for it.
I need to get some fuel cans filled up too which will probably happen tomorrow and three vehicles kept topped up.
Must remember de icer as I haven't got any and winter windscreen wash.
Two tyres to buy at the weekend.
Are you ready or will you just go with the flow as things change?

My little village life is not armageddon.
In severe winters which we haven't had for a good while we get iced in or snowed in pretty quickly and it can last for days power cuts too.
Maybe you modern city people with your busy busy roads and gritters etc don't really have to think like I do but only the village idiot doesn't prepare.
Can you let me have a bucket of coal and some logs I didn't get any .... it happens and we all know who it will happen too but this winter is predicted to be a hard one.
Like I said you centrally heated road gritted public transport galore none stop electricity and gas city people in your heat islands don't really have to go beyond putting on an extra pair of socks and some thermal knickers.

I've just put the heating on, I'm sure it will be fine.

I always have woolly jumpers around, and I have a hot water bottle. I have loads of gloves, hats, and scarves too. Don't need fuel really, or logs, or grit. I usually stock up on de-icer though.

I believe we are ready for winter, same clothes as the last 3 years.
I do feel the cold a bit more nowadays though.

Good tip, if you work or are out in the sticks, elements a lot. prior to donning you top coat, tie some cord, baling twine iestg around your middle, it stops the wind going up your back.
Do not wear a woolly hat

Heating on, electric blankets on the beds, winter coats out....I wonder if we'll get snow this year. I wish I could self isolate until Spring of 2021, like a bear.

Wearing a facemask out will keep your nose warm I suppose when there's freezing wind.
