Same here Jake. Loads of the horrible white stuff. Forecast absolutely correct.
I asked a BG friend this morning if the schools are closed, the answer was no, her boys are at school. A little while later I read hundreds of schools closed in the UK with much less snow, unbelievable. Rolling Eyes


Schools are closed in Burgas and Sasha's Russian school is also closed mainly due to the fact that they have miserable electric heating and no insulation.

I had a workaway here from Taiwan for two weeks and we managed to get her to the bus station in Karnobat only for her to discover that the Buses to Istanbul were cancelled on Tuesday and probably today too albeit, she found a cheap Hostel and met up with a Taiwanese man so is happy and it is a good job that she didn't come back here as at the moment, we are closed off by road to the outside world.

I was expecting a delivery from Speedy today, but at least they had the decency to telephone and tell me that they couldn't get here until Monday - perhaps they know more about the weather forecasts than I do. Rolling Eyes

Schools here closing too after all but only Friday and Monday so they get a long weekend.
I've just seen a photo of the snow from where I lived in the UK, looks about half an inch but I know some other areas of the UK have got it worse.

According to the forecast there is snow in Burgas too.
Over reaction in the UK, whatever gives you that idea? Laughing
Apparently, they are even going to discuss it on the programme called This Morning, for goodness sake.




Yes , I believe they discussed how to rescue people who had been trapped in their cars on moterways after a blizzard for 18hrs.......
How to reach farms who were trapped behind snowdrifts of 10foot etc
And things like that........! Waste of prime time eh !!!😚🙄

Perhaps where you and Pickle saw little coverings ..those areas were very lucky !!



Try getting the whole picture \ story ....then be sarcastic re UK

Krysia, check your dates. When I posted that, there was no more than a few centimetres of snow in the UK and some places only had a light dusting and that was the whole picture on that date.
It was days after that people were trapped in their cars overnight and I was appalled that major roads had not been cleared. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

What were those idiots, who had been given plenty of warning doing out in their cars without the right equipment/provisions to last 18 hours?
Wow a whole 10' snow drift, get real and stop being a drama queen.

Define "blizzard" and a 10' snow drift doesn't take long to get out of, i know from experience.

Reply with quote

Hi all. I can understand people laughing when Britain panics whenever there is a snowfall. Having lived in Bulgaria for years in central Bulgaria our village bus never let us down but Bulgarians are stoic and used to the cold and heat.
Here in Britain, it is quite unusual for SOME parts to get snow so it came as a bit of a shock particularly as it had been very mild the week before.
Here in Suffolk it is particularly unusual and it was very bad. When I arrived from Mallorca (where I left in sunshine!) I was lucky to get home by train. For 4 days I didn't go out for fear of falling and my pet hamster was stranded with my pet sitter only a few streets away because she couldn't get out of her house due to drifting. It was also bitter cold due to the Easterly wind which apparently, came from Siberia.

I agree people were out driving too fast for the conditions with no chains or snow tyres etc. as in Bulgaria and not clearing snow off their cars. Some people just had to get to work or visit elderly people and Communities did pull together in many instances.

I also, don't think the media need quite so much airtime on the weather but thats what the public loves so they go with it. To get better news you have to surf other news channels. By the way, has EuroNews disappeared on all satellites???
