I hope you lot are taking the p***. I'm supposed to be flying back to Blighty on Sunday. Bright blue skies all day here.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

From the photo it looks like there's not much in Norway to actually come to a stand still. No wonder the snow makes no difference.
Cheer up, RL is actually rather good

No, you can leave that behind.

The door, however, is over there.

Right on the coast here gingerjon..its a good 100cm away from the shore...go in land and its pretty deep.Next week they are expecting four foot up the north !!!!!!
Apparently this years snow fall has been light but a lot more expected.
Flew out of Oslo airport on friday and the runways where constantly beimg kept open by an army of snow ploughs.
I suppose Scandinavian countries know how to handle snow better than the UK.Here in Holland any light snow causes havoc with the transport system...especialy the road network.The Dutch also bracing themselves for a Siberian cold snap later this week.

Central Europe expects temperatures to drop down to -35C and below and from Wednesday not warmer than -15C. They think records could be broken in some areas for coldest ever temperatures. Some places at the foot of the Alps near to me (About 1 Hour away) have over 2 metres of snow, though there is next to nothing by me thankfully.

Happy days - off to Chamonix next month!!!
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

-32C last night in Oberstdorf which is 1 hour away from us! Was only -18 here though. Rome shuts down because of snow. Venice canals freezing over. Global warming is here.

Just taken the dog for a walk and stepped straight into a snow drift up to my arm pits. It took me a good five minutes to wriggle my way out.

A joke I spotted elsewhere:

A lot of snow up my end last night...

...

...

...but I suppose that's to be expected if you go to a party at Michael Barrymore's.

Wouldn't Stevie Nicks be more appropriate?
