Not sure how the met office can predict so far ahead - there is a perception here in S Devon that since they moved to Exeter they cannot get the forecast right for this area more than 24 hours in advance. Maybe a piece of seaweed can do that!!!!!! lol

Winterising does nto bother us as we use the caravanm all year round even in the snow. Gave up on met reports as as they tend to be rather inaccurate most of the time.

Ah! so winterising the van means preparing it for storage through the winter months!

 

We also use our van all year around so that's one less thing to worry about!

Goody look forward to getting away in the van for some weekends and waking up to a snowy scene. Might get snowed in and not be able to get back for work.

Put the convector heater back into the'van along with an extra blanket and the electric blanket. Make sure there is enough propane. Pack the wellies and fleeces and hope for snow.

Hi, glad I prompted some discussion!!

 

What I meant was - drained the caravan down, removed all the upholstery for cleaning, cleaned the loo and waste/water containers for storage, as we are fair weather caravanners, and also haven't yet got around to changing to propane as yet, and don't want another re-run of April when it was brass monkeys in the caravan, due to my husband reckoning that butane would be ok!! Duh!!

 

That's what I meant!!!!!

Thanks for the reply. Thought I was missing a something that I should be doing whilst using the van during the winter months!

The following may be an explanation for the forecast of a severe winter:

 

It was October and the Indians on a remote reservation asked their new Chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild.

 

Since he was a Chief in a modern society he had never been taught the old secrets.

When he looked at the sky he couldn't tell what the winter was going to be like.

 

Nevertheless, to be on the safe side he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared.

 

But being a practical leader, after several days he got an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and asked, "Is the coming winter going to be cold?"

 

"It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold," the meteorologist at the weather service responded.

 

So the Chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more firewood in order to be prepared. A week later he called the National Weather Service again. "Does it still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?"

 

"Yes," the man at National Weather Service again replied, "it's going to be a very cold winter."

 

The Chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they could find.

 

Two weeks later the Chief called the National Weather Service again. "Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?"

 

"Absolutely," the man replied. "It's looking more and more like it is going to be one of the coldest winters ever."

 

"How can you be so sure?" the Chief asked.

 

The weatherman replied, "The Indians are collecting firewood like crazy."

Further to my original post, portable gas heaters are flying out of the stores because the probability is that with the continuing cold(er) weather, gas & electricity supplies will fail!

 

Get your gas heater and gas now!

 

(And for those that poo-pooded my original post, I am laughing longest!)
