The following severe weather warning has been issued by the Met Office: 'There is a high risk of severe weather affecting parts of east and southeastern England during Friday. Heavy snow showers will give accumulations of 5-10cm on low ground and 15-20cm over hills. Some drifting snow is likely in the strong north to northeasterly wind. This could cause disruption to travel networks. Outdoor events may also be affected by the snow.'
The covers have been out at The Valley, but we can't afford hot air machines any more. 5-10 cms is not too much, although the implication is more for Shooters Hill, perhaps leading to another closure of its famous station.
However, a match against Southend was postponed some years ago because of the condition of the approach roads to The Valley. Snowball fight with the Spanners anyone?
