Do NOT read this headline. Do NOT click on this link.

(but if you did, feel free to post expressions of sympathy below, we're suffering here)

Everyone in the UK uses snowtires, right?
Not everyone in Canada has them. Try going up a mountain on Vancouver Island in March with a bunch of stoned Canadians who seem to be surprised that the mountain is covered in snow...

No, I was kidding about the snowtires. Apparently Quebec has the highest usage rate, at 90%, but they've just passed a law making them mandatory. Ontario's usage is below 30%. It's quite amazing the difference they make. We put them on the car we take up north in the winter, but not on the one that never leaves the city.

Yuri had best be right about this. I'm hunkered down in a bivouac made from cans of all day breakfast and beans with pork sausages. It's just me and two cats from now on in. If things get really bad, I'll burn one cat for heat and eat the other for food. I've seen 'The Day After Tomorrow' (which also happens to be my stock reply for when someone asks me when something is going to be done by) I'm taking no chances.

The cats may force my hand though. They're in the far corner of the beaney shelter, huddling together, plotting, planning, confiding in each other. They know the score. They know that people are idiots and we're all fucked. They're just waiting for their turn.

Egg's clearly in denial. It's the first sign.

I've just this lunchtime noticed a pub round here has only gone and got rid of all it's outdoor smoker's fuck off sized heaters. Mate says it's the EEC that's done it, they was bad for the environment and that.

Is it all too little too late?

WOM - did you actually make it into work today? I;m on a train just outside Belleville and visibility's down to maybe 75 metres. It's seriously ugly out there.

Why do people who've just seen a herd of bewildered buffaloes blown bodily down the street still insist on trying to put up there umbrella ? IT IS NOT GOING TO PROTECT YOU FROM THE RAIN, IT'S JUST GOING TO BREAK, YOU DOZY DINGBAT.

What's that non-sense about the outdoor heaters, no ban whatsoever, just the landlord who had enough paying for them...

The EEC? Don't you mean the "Common Market"?

Blue skies and bright sunshine in London. Cold, but not outrageously so. Not much wind.

AG - good god, no. I've sequestered myself in the library - fire roaring, faithful hound at my feet, Mehavishnu Orchestra on the Victrola- awaiting any emergency copywriting which may arise, should the bank come up with any novel ways to bilk the punters. Best of luck on the train. If you can't get farther than Guildwood, debark, make your way North and watch for the smoke curling from the chimney.

[Edit: no idea why I wrote Guildwood. I haven't lived near it for 9 years. I'm at Rouge Hill.)

For purpose of statistical analysis, two locations (made of 2/3 stations spread in the area) are used to calculate the average temperature of the UK, Manley and Hadley. January finished with a value of 6.6c, that makes it the joint 9th warmest January since 1659. That's the first month since June 2007 showing a marked increase on the average, 2.8c on the 1971-2000 benchmark.

Guildford: sunny. Cool, but nice. I now wish I was going for a ride on my scooter after work, instead of locking myself away in a cinema for a couple of hours.
