according to this article http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=10000102&sid=auU82tFkm7tE&refer=uk it will be the coldest winter in 8 years (the last 8 winters have been milder than average).

The Met Office says it's forecast is 65 percent accurate.

one of those mis-readings

If you want to hear real moaning - be in northern Illinois around January. Temps dip to -30C often and have some major widchills compounding the cold. I think I would rather be on the beach!!! Okay, so hopefully it will not be -1C in Florida (in January) like it was the last time we were there at that time. (Anne - start working on the warm weather thing!!!) Warm, sunny beaches - they're a good thing!!!!!

No no no no no.....

I am due to end my trip of nearly a year and go home at Christmas.

I can't go back to a nasty winter. And no job, and living with parents. Noooooo

I want to go and live somewhere sunny and warm.

Don't think that by escaping to Asia you'll also be escaping moaning Brits.

Chances are you'll be surrounded by hoards of them, moaning about the heat, mozzie bites, getting ripped off by the locals etc etc
