I see that Wirral Council are closing roads that go to the coast (New Brighton and West Kirby) and have issued warnings about not going to the woods.


One of my daughters is supposed to be flying from Manchester to Egypt tomorrow morning and she is a nervous passenger having been in a plane that made an emergency landing.

Hope it goes OK for her

If there is any danger the flight will be cancelled for sure.

It's good to moan.

Poor love.. I know how she feels.. I'm not too keen on flying.. As Klondike said .. the flight will be cancelled if there is any risk..
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

hugh

The storm arrives tomorrow so a very high chance of a cancelations. But I do hope she gets away and enjoys some hot sunny weather.

The Manchester City team had to be diverted to Liverpool airport on their way back from Portugal, winds were so bad.   Liverpool Airport on Twitter, posting: "Great to safely welcome Manchester City to the football capital of England this afternoon, after their flight was diverted from their home airport due to high winds."

:grin: :grin: :grin: priceless.

Manchester airport flight departures will have all up to date info on line i imagine.

What an interesting tournament. Liverpool v Manchester. The four top Prem teams and four from the lower leagues for a round-robin competition of some kind. I'd watch it.

I saw a video of that flight trying to land at Manchester.  My daughter had a nightmare getting through to the departure lounge but it looks as though the flight is on time.  The storm has just started to hit the north west.

I already have a bit over 3" of snow - it started at 0600 and there is no sign of a let-up - I have agreed with my cleaning lady that she stays home and stays safe, ditto my masseuse who lives up in the hills

My daughter is in the air but it looks like a rather odd route, probably trying to avoid the storm.  I'll stop worrying about her now and start worrying about my grandchildren who are with their ........ of a dad!

This is already the heaviest snowfall we have had for at least two years, and there is clearly more to come. Three and a half hours so far and no sign of it letting up. I am already going to need wellies just to get to the garage freezers, but thankfully don't actually need to go there
