  1. Three daffodils have managed to break through in my garden - silly things, they don't have much time left!

      Well I may well have to quit gardening in the way that I do, if this cold spell delivers what it is supposed to.. I love gardening but it's not feasible given the way winters may be heading.. so forgive me if I'm not happy about this cold spell.

  2. The temperature here last went above 10°C 44 days ago..

      The last 10c here was on the 2nd of March and what a lovely day it was. Eugene, i thing Botty is just looking forward to Summer. Nothing wrong with that, especially after the winter of eternal gloom.

      I do want seasonal variation but be nice if the warm season wasn't so short meaning a few bad weeks and that's your lot for another year!

      I think the hardcore cold lovers would just like cold and ice 12 months of the year TBF. I want very warm, sunny/thundery for summer, atlantic gales and depressions from oct through dec. a brief cold snowy spell in jan, then a fresh showery early spring, oh that was the ninties!

  3. Winter doesn't want to end in Scandinavia! http://www.foreca.com/Sweden/Stockholm?tenday

      It snowed for half an hour but didn't settle. Trough too far north.

      I agree, they seem more rubbish than normal this winter. I'm kind of in the SE now and agree about this one, when will I see decent sun next?? Never known so many 5 day forecasts without any sun on them.

      Also what ever has happened to clear nights with harsh frosts in cold spells?

  6. Go away easterly winds, you're not wanted here.

      bottesford I would agree, if its dry, dont get many dry SW'ly's here in the west

  7. From hereon in, sunsets in Leeds will be later than London, with 4 minutes of extra day length gained.

  8. I have to concur with the posts below - this current weather is great, sunny and mild by day, cold and frosty by night. The upcoming spell of weather looks unrelentingly dull and I am not interested in the slightest.

      Admit it, you're a closet mildy lol

      true who cares! NW midlands turn soon I hope, sorry if greedy i did do well in Jan

  11. A shame for me, and anyone else who was looking forward to a historic blizzard, so you can save your lecture about people disliking snowfall/snowfall causing problems for someone who cares.
  12. Started as snow in NY but appears to be raining, which is a shame.
  13. I love night shifts! (sarcasm highly likely).

      I get paid more to do it, but my sleeping has been a total mess so far this week. I feel exhausted.

      Been doing nights for 6 years now and love them. I think you either love them or hate them.

  14. Nearly 7 hours of sun yesterday!

      The strange thing is it feels chillier today than yesterday, nice prolonged sunshine yesterday thats why

  15. Didn't even realise that my 'predictions' for both Jan and Feb are exactly the same..
