      Perhaps it's a good thing that people are eating less large portions of cheap processed sugary snacks

      Even here in urban south London I struggle to get a signal strong enough to have an unbroken convo on the mobile, so our landline has it's uses still! Ok, I could change mobile provider I suppose, but other struggle on different networks.

  10. Network rail staff have voted in favour of taking some form of industrial action, whilst no dates are know when this may take place it could happen over the bank holiday weekend and it is likely to cause significant disruption across the railway network.

      Don't think it'll make much of a difference, the network is a shambles normally anyway - but especially B/H weekends.

  14. Still no snow yet in south London this winter, not too hopeful atm of seeing any for the rest of this cold spell, may have to go to where it is!

      Just bad luck for London, we were the wrong side of that low, had it tracked further south then we would've seen snow like in Essex.

      Difficult question, personally I'd hedge on a return to northwesterly regime returning again, as has done for much winter, with a few northerlies thrown in.

  16. Been in Paris for work (saw only conference rooms as per usual!) and noted how it didn't get light till gone 9am but still light till 1730. Felt different to the regime in Berlin & the UK not sure what I prefer...

      Think the hour ahead works better in summer time, as the light early mornings are wasted on getting darker an hour earlier in the evening.

      Oh don't, there's a lot of snow starved UK members in here at their wits' end with the current model output.

  19. Anyone else watching the Year of Weather on BBC News24 this morning, what an interesting year of weather 2014 was!

  20. Been a pretty disastrous warm easterly spell this week delivering horrendous weather for many parts of eastern/central england, westerlies at least deliver alot more sunshine and not grey skies all day, havent seen the sun since sunday which was from a nice cool westerly, easterlies are best from about July when the North Sea warms up, even an above average North Sea is still cool enough to ruin any direct easterly even in very late May something some people on here fail to comprehend when th...

  21. I do think things are finally about to turn cold here!

    1. Nick F

      Nick F

      You've probably arrived in Berlin in one of their mildest winters for a long while, but greater chance there of turning colder than us ahead.
