    Looks like the cold snap could be starting next week

    Will this help kill the bugs in my soil?

    I wouldn't expect it to be cold enough to kill bugs at this time of year. The sort of cold that does that would be where the soil freezes solid and stays that way for a few days. The current forecast for early November is for night frosts but not staying below freezing all day.

    I'm not going to panic having read that article!

    "Describing the drop, Met Office forecaster Nicky Maxey warned that temperatures could be about to fall into single figures.

    ‘We could be looking at one or two degrees below what we’d expect at that time of year’, she said."

    Doubt that I'll notice one or two degrees difference. Never mind, the snow picture was pretty

    Just read the thread and even the well constructed thoughts of Panllype have a lot of IF's in the reasoning.

    As my old Dad use to say IF is a very small word with a very large meaning, IF your Auntie had balls she would be your Uncle!

    I'm happy to wait for the weather to unfold and react to it as it happens

    I think it is just preparatory info Cad. We either take note or we don't.

    IMO it's always better to be prepared, just in case, rather than just hope for the best.

    Like when the MetO gives storm warnings, you batten down the hatches but no storm arrives. We moan, but how bad could things have been if the storm had hit us without the warning?

    Since Michael Fish screwed up bigtime they give warnings about everything, and now nobody really takes any notice.

    Thanks P - very good for a layman to understand!

    I hate Winter, but I'm very much hoping for a 'normal' cold winter, and hopefully a 'normal' spring to give mother nature a helping hand
