  1. They actually only have to give us 2 months notice, so 3 is a bonus really. They really don't want to sell the house and said if their circumstances change in the meantime, they won't sell. Mid-winter is not a good time to be moving house.
  2. Lovely house there. Sadly, our landlords informed us yesterday that they are going to have to sell the house so we will have to move by January. Been here 4 and a half years and this was their retirement income. They were happy for us to live here forever but due to unforseen circumstances they have to sell. They are almost as gutted as we are. They said we are the best tenants they could have hoped for and offered us first refusal on buying it. I bought a lottery ticket last night.... (£550,000 market value...) Didn't win... Sad really, we love the house and we couldn't have wished for better landlords. They've even been here for barbecues in the summer. If we do have an epic winter, we could be moving in the middle of it. Not quite sure where though, there aren't many properties around here which suit our needs within our budget. But hey, $#/! happens, that's life...

    So... we're now on 159 days, with 86 days left, the maximum number of spotless days we could theoretically achieve is 245 days. Realistically, there is likely to be a few more sunspots by the end of the year but I reckon we will still manage to pass the 200 mark
  4. Just for fun at this stage but the CFS looks interesting for Boxing day Even -16c uppers a few days later! 1962 anyone?

    Now equal to 2007 for blank days.
  6. Actually, as of now, the anomaly is slightly positive for all areas-
  7. The Met office complaints department should deal with that for you. Though you do need to subscribe to their premium service if you want a sting jet over your house...
  8. I suppose I better take my gazebo down. Before it ends up somewhere over the rainbow....
  9. That's 8m/s going up to 9 at the end. Still lower than climatology I suppose.
  10. Can't see it here Steve- Looking around average. That's H. Attard website. Where do you see the dip to 5m/s? (which site I mean)
  11. Hmm... one ensemble chart at +384hrs doesn't really 'tie' into much. Lots of waiting yet before any projections can be given credibility....
  12. So do I. Though based on scientific fact and historical data, It's more a 'feeling' than anything else..

    Forgettable years, weatherwise.

    Forgettable years?... Dunno, I forgot them....
  14. Yes I agree about the larger gains point. What I'm really referring to is the suggestion that we may see recurring blocking weather patterns which could result in larger gains anyway through October. Early days yet but all we can do is watch and wait...
  15. Yes. It's technically the October SAI. However, an early start to the season can only help things along
