The Big Freeze

Plummeting temperatures have grounded flights and halted supply of essentials. And so, I read that the Scottish Daily Express had warned yesterday that staple foods disappeared from supermarket shelves. Today, Scotland is running out of gas and fuel. In fact, the freezing conditions show no sign of abating as Scotland experienced colder temperatures than the North Pole! Altnaharra in Sutherland hit minus 18.9C on Wednesday night, and the mercury plunged as low as minus 25C in Grampian last night.

Liverpool secured their passage to the last 32 of the Europa League, despite earning a 1-1 draw against Steaua Bucharest. Milan Jovanovic put the Reds ahead after he found the bottom corner with a header from Ryan Babel's cross (19). But a Pepe Reina blunder let Eder Bomfim sneak in the equalizer for the other side (61).
