WHILST Britain waits to be frozen over by the 'Beast from the East', for the BRT Redditch & South Warwickshire Combination it was business as usual on Sunday.
In the Premier Division, Hizza United and visitors Wychbold RBL found each other in an uncompromising mood and it took a moment of genius from RBL's Tom Harris to secure the points as he struck with a fine 25-yard free kick to seal a 1-0 win.
Alcester Town also grabbed maximum points as they got the better of visitors Athletico 4-3 in a thriller.
In Division One, outstanding performances from Carl Andrews and hat-trick hero Dave Phelan inspired JMC United to a 3-2 home victory over Thomas Brothers.
Second placed Millfields Rovers went goal crazy in Division Two as they won 8-2 at home to Kingswood Town, with Sean Chance helping himself to a hat-trick.
Sean Trainor's 35-yard strike was the pick of Washford Lions' goals in their 4-1 home win over Merchants.
Royal Oak Studley shared the points with visitors Mayfly in a 1-1 draw.
Division Three Leaders Bell Studley took full advantage of an injury to Wythall Wanderers' goalkeeper just before half time to seal a 4-1 away victory.
The score was level at the time of the injury but the visitors eventually ran out winners thanks largely to a brace from Dan Beauchamp.
Second placed Woodrow kept up the pace with a 4-2 away win over Peter Simpson XI thanks to two goals each from Butters and Brough.
In the County Cups, a Carl Martin scissor kick was the pick of the goals as CBH Fasteners beat visitors Broadway United 4-2 to book a quarter-final spot in the Worcestershire FA Junior Cup.
In the Birmingham FA Sunday Cup, Austin Ex-Apprentices had an emphatic 6-0 victory at Kings Norton and Black Horse continue to beat all put before them this season as they put out visitors Goodyear Pavilion 6-3.
Webheath booked a place in the Keith Turner Cup final with a 2-1 win at Bartley Green Sunday.
Redditch Cricket Club were in merciless mood as they beat lower ranked visitors Rocklands 16-1 in the BSA Cup and they were joined in the last four by Division Two's Woodland who beat Division One side Fleece 4-3 in a thriller as Craig Malins netted a hat-trick for the victorious hosts.
