    I remember in 1987 there was bad snow & high winds, which meant some people lost both their power supply & phone lines.

    For a moment I thought you were referring to the infamous October 1987 storm that Michael Fish misled the nation about - I went to school on Friday 16th October, and to be honest, I could have been blown to school rather than walked there that morning.

    Odd how we pronounce Storm Ciera like a K and not a C, a bit like Keira Knightley's name.

    Snow, and tons of the stuff in Nottingham.

    Took me four and a half hours to do a trip out that would have originally took an hour and a half on an ordinary day.

    I tell you something - this Storm Ciera seems to equal the 1987 storm in any case (did the 1987 storm have a name, or was it before British storms and hurricanes were named?)
