    Default Thousands of homes in NI affected by severe weather

    Over 2500 homes have been affected by severe wintry weather during the past few days, with flights disrupted at both Belfast airports and several sporting fixtures postponed. The worst affected areas seem to be in Fermanagh and Tyrone, up to a foot of snow has fallen.

    BBC News - Weather leaves 150 Northern Ireland homes without electricity

    Hope everyone is OK.

    I'm gutted we have no snow lying up here in Derry. I bought a back-wheel drive over a year ago and still haven't been able to "test" it in the snow!

    I agree, threads about flags are far more important.

    Exactly, "grip" is not something I'm looking for!

    Mope perhaps ?
    Even with the usual caveats attached to opinion polls, a 65% to 17% majority for Northern Ireland remaining in the UK suggests little room for doubt.
