Are you prepared for the big freeze?

Are you prepared for the big freeze?

Posted on 25 Oct 2017 By Coal Hut

This winter is said to be the “coldest winter since the great freeze” and it’s time to prepare your home for the chilly days ahead. Many news outlets have already reported on the matter, stating that 2017 will forever be known as “the year of the snowstorm”. Of course, this might be a little hard to believe at this stage but it won’t be long before the autumn leaves are covered with a thick layer of white snow as temperatures are predicted to plummet next month.

This sudden gust of Arctic weather is coming in from the North Pole. You can expect frosty mornings and icy nights that’ll have you reaching for the warmest coat in your closet. The weather warnings are issued to encourage people to prepare for the cold weather in advance. This is especially important since it’s the coldest winter since the Great Freeze that struck the UK back in 2010.

If you were like me, you spent most of that winter completely snowed in. Of course, we lived in the countryside at the time so when the snow hit, the country roads were the last to get a taste of any salt. Some people remember feeling miserable as the entire country was in a snow-covered standstill but my family and I loved it. The schools were closed and my sisters and I used the free time to practice our snowman making skills. Yes, we weren’t children anymore but you’re never too old to make a snowman and give him a snow dog companion.

Since then, we’ve managed to escape major snowstorms here in the UK but it looks like our luck is running out. According to recent news reports, the weather is thanks to a “sinking Polar Vortex”, which will release heavy snowstorms, fog, and ice throughout the country.

So, how can you prepare for the cold weather and keep you and your family warm this winter? Thankfully, supplies everything you’ll need for a cosy winter such as multi-fuel stoves, coal, heaters, kiln-dried hardwood logs and much more.
