Dennis the Menace hits Halifax at around 11am according to the BBC. If the game is played, it will be in horrendous conditions - for players and fans alike. 

Be fine at back of East Stand

Must win if the game as on, even more so as Barrow & Harrogate have been called off. 

The fact that both those games have been called off speaks volumes. 

Our only hope, and it's clutching at straws, is that the storm doesn't arrive at its predicted time and it arrives later, say after the game. But it's not often they are so far out ie predicted to start at 11 and it doesn't arrive until six hours later.

Or everyone is panicking over nothing. It will be nowhere near as bad as last week

So will ours tomorrow. It's fit to play now but by one o'clock tomorrow it'll probably be a different story.

I just hope that it's not as bad as feared, especially for all the people that live in flood hit areas. They really have suffered enough.

The thing is, in places like Mytholmroyd, people know which houses are likely to be flooded every 5 years at least. It has happened since people moved down from the hill tops at the time of the Industrial revolution. It was worse when I was a kid when only a small dry stone wall stood between the river and the centre of Mytholmroyd. We used to think it was great when we were at Burnley Road Primary School as we were sent home early when the river got to a certain height.

A local Hairdresser admitted recently after being flooded for the second time in 5 years that she knew the risk when she opened the business.

Maybe it is time to move back to the hills.

Yeah, it is an awkward one and I doubt that any government will spend the necessary money to fully, of that's possible, solve the problem.

Not just doentbjay way affected though. I read that the Shibden Mill Inn was flooded out too. Similar problem in that it's right at the bottom of the valley.

Wrexham and Fylde have done exactly that, they've looked at the forecast and decided its not worth the risk.

If tomorrow’s game is abandoned, will any season ticket holders who do not attend tomorrow, be allowed to use the season ticket for the new date

Yes, if you have a season ticket the ticket is valid for whenever the game is played. 

If you mean you can't make the game tomorrow, but could make a re-arranged game if the game starts but does not get completed, then also yes. As a season ticket holder you effectively have paid upfront for all the games, so regardless of if you turn up tomorrow or not, you could get in on your season ticket for any re-arranged game due to an abandonment.

Tough one really as the pitch won't have got any worse this week so will no doubt be playable this morning. Hard to call a game off on what might, or might not happen.

Well your fat bastards better not play on it tomorrow either.

Weather forecasters are advising not to travel unless you have to so I suspect quite a few fans would have stayed safe rather than venturing to the Shay had it not been sensibly called off in time to avoid people putting themselves at risk.

We will have to beat Sutton later on our very own sand pit!

Over 70% chance of rain up to 9 am tomorrow. Pitch will be totally waterlogged. The RL parasites can't possibly play, can they?

They can and probably will. Unlike today the forecast is quite favourable at their kick off time tomorrow. They love sliding about anyway. Best start looking at Rochdale's ground for any free midweeks

The lower you go the warmer it gets. That's why hell is on fire.
