Well, after an extremely hectic last week of term in Leeds University, I am back in Cleadon, Tyne & Wear for the Christmas holidays- but unfortunately coming down with a bit of a cold.
Will be seeing quite a bit of the people I know from my junior school, one of whom has been my closest friend for over 10 years. Also have a bit of revision to do for exams in January.
Having set up my professional weather station and, for the first time, having a thermometer which I know is accurate to within a couple of tenths of a degree Celsius, I am hoping that there will be a decent fall of snow in Cleadon- even if it happens while I'm in Leeds- in order to see what the "temperature profile" looks like, and whether snow does indeed settle readily at temperatures of up to 1C, or whether my past thermometers over-read a little. There might, just might, be a chance this Saturday. I'm not going to complain if it's a bog-standard 36 hour northerly with an inch of snow for Tyne & Wear if I happen to be here when it matters.
