The Big Freeze.

Hi,

.

Saturday is here again, so we shall be meeting once more tonight, to find out how things are going to shape up for the X Factor semi-final.

Unless I have frozen to death first of course.

.

I was up late again this morning because I find myself being totally unwilling to actually get up and face the cold….so I just lie there feeling warm and letting the time pass.

.

Eventually I had to get up because I needed a pee.

So, that was it then, back in a world of draughts, cold air and inadequate heating for a place that was well below zero again last night.

I am beginning to feel like Nanook Of The North these days….without having to eat the seal blubber as yet.

.

We are still in a country that has been brought to it’s knees by the cold and snow.

.

Even people doing their shopping in their local supermarket are not safe from the effects of the heavy snowfall.

In Scunthorpe, a part of the roof at the Tesco collapsed, due to the weight of the snow on it.

After the evacuation of the premises it was luckily found that no-one was injured as the collapse had been in the least busy area of the shop.

.

There are even old people being found frozen to death out in their gardens now, in Cumbria, where temperatures reached minus 20.

William Wilson, who was 84, was found on Tuesday in Kirby Stephen.

Lillian Jenkinson,80, was found the next morning in Workington.

Nobody is yet sure how it actually happened.

.

Even cows and sheep needed rescuing by emergency services, when 200 of them became trapped, when the shed they were being held in collapsed down on top of them.

.

Thanks to silly teenagers, and their daft tricks, a 77 year old pensioner also died when he went out of his house for the second time to move his car back to the pavement after the youths kept spinning it out into the middle of the road.

Although he managed to move it safely on the first occasion, he died from a sudden heart attack the second time.

His widow said that her husband had suffered from a serious heart condition and no-one wanted the teenager’s lives to be ruined by their actions.

.

Supplies in some shops are getting low as food is being hoarded and petrol supplies are running out as deliveries cannot be made because of the icy roads.

.

Weather forecasts say that there will be at least 10 more days of this ‘Big Freeze’.

Whoah….how’s that for being lucky lucky lucky!

J,x.
