    What’s the worst weather you’ve watched hibs?

    Two spring to mind for me:

    Kilmarnock game at er about 96 freezing and windy

    And Dundee United at new year around 2002 - minus five or something

    That was it for me, the wettest, soaked through feeling I have ever had at the football.

    The Millennium Derby was well below zero, but we felt no pain after skelping the dafties.

    A couple of honourable mentions for two recent games at Alloa too.

    I don’t remember the exact game, but I recall being at Tynecastle in the opposite end from where we get now. It was pissing wet, and I was in the front row where there was no shelter from it.
    We wanna be free, we wanna be free to do what we wanna do, and we wanna get loaded, and we wanna have a good time... That's what we're gonna do

    It's already been called but it's no because it's still in the memory. Cowdenbeath in the Scottish Cup run of 2012 - 3-2 win. It was a relief to get home, nevermind get through the tie.

    Wettest has to be when we played a Lithuanian (possibly) team in the intertoto cup.

    Sat in the lower right corner of the famous 5 and a slide tackle got me and my mum soaked by the tsunami that followed.

    Couple snowy games when I was younger, but nothing really since has been too unbearable

    Great shout Hammi! I didnt go for this one though as I was under cover at the game.

    We travelled through by car from Glasgow and there were loads of roads closed on the way there. Several 'dips' were like that crossroads down from Starks Park when there was a similar downpour during the first half of a preseason friendly about five years ago - game got abandoned at half time.

    Mid eighties , midweek against Partick I think at E.R. the match was abandoned due to fog, I was in the old enclosure and you couldn't see the goals at the Dunbar end .
    The rearranged fixture was free entry and I think less than 10000 turned up. Attendances in the grim Bertie Auld days were sometimes 4/5 thousand.
    Strange thing was , or away support wasn't much less at the time.
    $#@! football, but happy days .

    I honestly reckon that game went ahead because the Lithuanian mob could not afford to come back to Leith. Literally tons of water swept off the pitch with giant squeegees before and at half time.

    I'm sure that's the story I remember from then too, they had travelled however far and it was impossible for them to get back for their own fixtures and deal with a rearrangement.
    Would have sucked for any fans too. I remember the half time effort too vaguely.


    I like how American football fans regularly clear and prepare their pitches, seen plenty scooping snow n such like.

    A game at McDiarmid Park about 25 years ago- it snowed for an hour before kick off and got heavier during the game.

    I think we lost 0-2 and I would bet Paul Wright scored at least once- he usually did! I do remember the orange ball being used and a miserable journey back that took about 3 hours.

    Have to say that I am old enough to remember days at Easter Road when as long as the line markings were visible.....kick on.

    Hibs V Huns about 45 or so years ago at Easter Road. Freezing cold and piling it down with snow and it was the proper East Terracing of old which, as older bouncers will recall, was open to the elements. It was so dismal I don't even recall if we won or not.

    Early 90's , open terracing at the gorgie road end, driving ice cold rain as Husref Musemic scored the only goal of the game ??

    That was the game I was going to choose. I was there with a young @braeheadcabbage

    One of our many,many horrible games against those gunts.

    Edit: it was 26/8/89

    It was the third time we tried to play it that it was free, second time it was called off with about 20mins till kick off, I gave some disgruntled dundee fans the news as I left ER and headed back for a green bus.

    I think we won 2-0 in the end? Maybe a penalty? I used to know this stuff...

    Wasn't it just after half-time? Meaning we weren't entitled to refunds? May be wrong, but I remember feeling particularly hard done by.

    Away to Dundee Utd in the old uncovered away end behind the goals.There was a 10min hailstorm and I thin it's the coldest I've ever been.

    Honourable mention of the intertoto game monsoon conditions and myself and @brianmc had walked down from Waverley!

    There's been a few times but one came to mind recently - did we not have a game against the Dodgers cancelled midgame when we were winning 2-0 through there? Not long before Stanton left for them. He was instrumental that day. It was pretty misty. Sure their fans invaded the pitch?

    Not necessarily the worst feeling weather but the worst feeling given we inevitably didn't win the rematch....

    We did indeed, I went with my Celtc supporting school pals and a teacher on a Celtc supporters bus.

    Never argue with fools as people might not know the difference
