MANXIES! The snow is on its way and the Met Office is going bonkers.
The weather warning has been upgraded to “Amber”, so if you hear 7 short blasts followed by 1 long blast, run for cover and hide from society for the next three days. Or alternatively, just get on with your lives as normal, we guess.
Either way, there will be some of us who love the snow and some who’ll curse at everything and everyone for the next few days. So we’ve listed some things you are likely to hear over the next couple of days:
