Nah, that's just a forecaster hedging their bets! "Hmm, looks like it might rain, but it's quite cold, feck it I'll say sleet"

It's the same as those old nutmegs 'sunny spells' and 'blustery showers'.

I'm predicting a couple of inches of snow overnight on Saturday with rain on Sunday afternoon, based on no more than a hunch, which is more than most forecasters can go on 5 days in advance.

I'll bring some seaweed and a cloud chart for the actual day...... :ghey:

Bad news on the fire front - the woodland ranger has said no. F&O are trying to sort a space heater though!

Speak for yourself! I'm sleeping in my car (can't be arsed with a tent for a one day game). I've also invested in some quality thermals and some sealskinz socks and will be wearing several layers of clothing (including a swedish sheepskin parka if it gets really cold!). I have a few heat pads as well if it gets particularly miserable. I don't think it will be too bad for those of us with woolen uniforms anyway, even if it pisses it down and is freezing cold, as a layer of wool is a great insulator even if soaked through.

Veterans of Churchills Revenge should take it in their stride anyway, as we've been through it before and come through it (except for 90% of the allied side of course! :ghey: ).

I'll be all right once I'm in my tent - I'm thinking more of the social evening.

So was I! :rofl: For once, I plan on limiting my drinking (when the case if Stella is empty, that's it), as alcohol makes you more susceptible to hypothermia. I seriously doubt if I'll wear the parka "in game", as it's just too hot, I'll just go for several layers (easy to take one off if overheating). It is a bummer about the fire though, they're great for morale if nothing else.
