  1. Foggy again, wet and cold. Ground is sodden. Hopefully the forecast warmth will dry things out, but the North Sea is very cold, and as soon as there is any easterly in the wind (SSE to NNE) the cold sea triggers sea fret
  2. Oh well, 1 and a half fine days. Sea fret came in about 1.30, now quite foggy and WET. Managed to cut grass today, but ground is still really soggy, this is the most miserable weather-wise spring for some years

  3. Weather wise this has to be the most miserable Easter long weekend for several years, 3 wet days, yesterday was dry but still cloudy, and today the rain has been heavy and persistent all day, and no snow here.

      Leaves you yearning for a cloudydaze all this rain ,lol

  4. As others have said what a miserable day, cold east wind and been raining most of the day. Went to Beverley this morning and fields are looking very soggy with large patches of standing water

      be alright if it was snow lol

  5. Hail over Malton just now, turned the ground white for a few minutes but back to rain now
  6. Still bitterly cold, not a lot of snow, but no thaw today. Strong winds have made the wind chill impressive. Our wood burner has been going 24/7, very unusual this time of year, and our woodsheds are starting to look empty after having only used just over half our store by mid Feb.

  9. In Memoriam

    Stephen Hawking not only a great physicist but also overcame disabilities. His name will live on
  10. An interesting one this, after the initial 'shock horror' reaction think about this: As technology has advanced the skills needed to survive at that point in time change. 20000 years ago the ability to hunt, and find wild foods were essential, now days how many people know how to hunt, skin and dress an animal. As increasingly complex electronic devices embed them selves will writing go the same way. Equally watch a group of teenagers texting or using their mobiles, they can write quicker than I can using a pen and paper. So I suspect it's just evolution of homo sapiens. I hardly ever use pen and paper at work, everything is electronic. If I couldn't write I would survive as long as I can use a keyboard and mouse, but if I wasn't computer literate I would be out of a job
  11. Heavy snow in Malton not settling properly but if it keeps up like it is now that will change
  12. Snow all gone now, been raining most of the afternoon. Still cold but nothing like last week, quite foggy here tonight.

  13. A big improvement in conditions around the eastern end of the Wolds tonight. On a journey from Malton to home all main roads were mainly clear, with just the odd patch of blowing snow. Still bitterly cold though with a penetrating easterly wind. Another issue for coastal areas around here are the waves, was down in Bridlington about 5.45 and with the gale force winds there some huge waves breaking over the seafront and harbour. Took my camera down, but there was that much flying salt spray that I did want to risk an expensive DSLR camera, Mrs took some pictures with her waterproof phone, but they didnt do it justice. Also seen some video on Facebook from Scarborough showing the seafront being inundated near the harbour.
  14. Drove home from Scarborough at 8pm. Roads passable but a lot of drifting and white out even on A165. Penetrating cold, car external temp showed -7c in places and -6 at home, not sure how accurate they are. Traveling back from Manchester on the train snow starts as soon as you leave Standedge tunnel.
  15. Just leaving Huddersfield now heavy snow most of the way from east of Leeds. Roads starting to cover now in spite of morning traffic.
