@ ed mew, spot on eduardo!When we got stuck in Yarmouth, coming back from Bournemouth Airport in Jan. 2010, the snow was knee deep.The ONLY person who would try to get us back to Ventnor was a local cabbie from Norton called John, who said he would get us as near as possible for £30.Good as his word, he got us to the Blackgang lookout and, while we walked home from there, he took our luggage back to his home and we got it later in the week.Big up for Island cab drivers.

It's only a bit of snow for ****s sake! It probably won't happen anyway.

I love the snow! it is the time for people that think Isle of Wight taxi drivers rip you off actually realise we provide a service. When there are no trains or buses or any other means of getting home who do they rely on ??? (Sandra Essex) please take note!!!!!

Plenty of the White stuff around although I think the MO timing is out, we have from 9:am Monday until 9:am Tuesday and could see 10-12cm over the 24 hours in question. Daytime highs of 1 or 2c will keep it hanging around until Thursday when the temperature rises. No such thing a global warning, (a poor title) it's actually climate change.

The North wind doth blow and we shall have ................. Don't believe a word. The met Office always plays it safe - ever since the hurricane of 1987. Mind you, they could be right - I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure

david, apparently the interchangeable logic of the eco terrorists allows for the fact that if it is 10 below freezing it just proves global warming is happening, as does the interchangeable data from such impartial sources such as The Uni. of East Anglia (Oh how I still laugh at the falsified emails), when it rains for almost 9 continuos months as it has since May/ June 2012.What gives me hope that the sane people are winning the battle against the doom ****ers and those who are making serious shedloads of money punting the "green" agenda, "Green Deal", Egoisland, wind farms etc., are recent head-in-the-hand desperation tweets such as this by Rayban Green: "Seems to b a list of Ecoisland bashers - if we had 1 EcoWarrior 4 every 10 naysayers we would b doing well"So he is at last admitting, if not imminent defeat, that he is outnumbered by 10 to 1. CP, take note!As Tony the Tiger would say, "Grrreat!"
