It's an unacceptable state of affairs the negative effect the weather has had on life this winter - be it the water situation in NI, the airports etc - there's a long list when you put your mind to it.  I find it amazing that the powers that be are not prepared to act in advance of this weather - if you take this cold spell, we were talking about it starting on this forum a good couple of weeks before it started, along with its severity.  If you take last years winter I think the topic on this forum started in the october, where, again, we discussed with some accuracy the synopsis that occured.  Now, I know we're only 'amatuers' on here, but I know that when temperatures have been down in the minus teens for some significant time that the thaw effect of this is going to be burst pipes, given the fact that on here we said when the thaw was going to begin some time before it did you would have hoped the authorities anticipated the problem and put measures in place prior, not after it happened.  It's a shoddy state of affairs!  Angry
