    Absolutely stunning morning here, 10.30 and boat roof is still covered in ice.
  2. Well the Morso Squirrel stove went on about October 16th, and hasn't been out since, its quite a challenge keeping it in but just slumbering at this time of year, leave it burning too hot in the day and the cat has shaved its fur off when we get home when its sunny. We only light the 2nd stove at the back (the Epping) when it goes below freezing for days on end, so it protects the engine. The Squirrel will probably stay lit until March now, and usually overnights until May. The central heating unit NEVER gets used.
  3. Look back to what happened from Nov 26th 2010......

    At this point in 2010, the coming big freeze still wasnt showing, GFS was still saying Atlantic influence, it happened in a very short timescale and was very interesting in here when the first signs showed.

    Beautiful clouds today in Northants with most of the precipitation failing to make the ground level.

    Storm Callum - Atlantic Storm 3

    Michael will almost certainly hit us on Monday, whether it still has tropical status is debatable, nothing about Michael has matched model expectations yet.

    brett was adamant that is wasnt safe to stay in Mexico City, then he drives directly towards it, getting caught when almost there.

    it didnt help that they had virtually no notice. Brett will be gutted if the car survives to the eye and is facing a clapperboard wall!!

    The offshore winds lulled them into a false sense of security and as the eyewall started to move round them, the surge has hit. I think they have got into the building to the left of the car car is now floating
