  1. More than happy to swap snow here for the Caribbean if you want!
  2. Patience. It's barely started. Beast from the East didn't strike until March.
  3. Sleet here. Trying ever so hard to turn to snow.
  4. Have a feeling the good old North Downs will do it's usual job of acting like a snow shield. We only tend to do well when it's an Easterly.
  5. The moon looks incredible this morning. It's huge!
  6. Just had a light flurry and it's now stopped. I think this is all we can really expect for today. better chance looks to be Saturday for our region.
  7. Looks like my best chance is Saturday. Still not expecting anything more than a light flurry with maybe some to lay.

    For all the pilots, wannabe pilots, aviation enthusiasts or people who have questions about aviation. It seems there are a lot of us here and it ties in nicely with our love of weather!

    Is litter getting worse?

    I can't help notice the sharp escalation in litter in my area recently. Some days it honestly looks like someone has just emptied black bags all along the side of roads. It's absolutely disgusting and is left there for months. Even reporting it to the council seems to do nothing. Lots get spilled by the trucks on bin day and is just never picked up. They seem to be able to deal with letter much better in other countries, I don't know why it's such a problem here. Is your area the same?
  10. I find it really frustrating when other women try to silence my opinion on something when it doesn't fit their own views on 'women's issues'. That is the exact opposite of feminism.

      do most women have issues😉

  11. Most are pretty much straw clutching and making it up as they go along to be perfectly honest. It's a shame because some real experts and people who are doing good model reading get covered up by the nonsense.

    Is litter getting worse?

    Well after I tweeted the council they promised they'd get it sorted. Lets see if they do. Not holding my breath.
  13. The amount of sniping and thinly veiled digs at people is creeping up again in this thread. Stop it, please or take it to PM if you have an issue and remain civil.

    Is litter getting worse?

    Fixmystreet is a good way to report stuff and it goes straight to your council. The problem is when they do nothing about it.... Funny thing is, in one report I did, I mentioned smashed glass on the kerb. That got cleaned up within 24 hours, but the litter mentioned in the same report is still there a month later. I tweeted the council to mention that nothing is done about litter reports and they just responded by telling me to make another report
  15. This really. Whatever we did, someone wouldn't be happy. We're trying to provide the reasonable middle ground. As a new mod, I had absolutely NO idea of the workings of a forum. The number of reports, pms, whinges, people wanting different things etc etc. It's absolutely non stop sometimes even with all hands on deck. That said, I love this forum. I've been here for years and I've learnt loads and I think we're all, for the most part, a good bunch. We want to make as many of you as happy as possible. So when we ask you to kindly do things, it's for the betterment of experience, honest.

    FGS. I 100% believe nimbys are responsible for the Gatwick disruption.
  17. I'll be very surprised if that comes to pass in anything more than a very light, short sprinkle.

    Is litter getting worse?

    I join in with the local litter picks when I can but the bottom line is that it's a service we pay for and aren't getting. I wouldn't mind so much if they didn't lie about it. Telling us they clear a particular place weekly yet there's video evidence of the same litter from one month to the next.
  19. Seriously guys. You asked for a banter thread for more relaxed discussion and we sorted that. Can you please use that. There's so much off topic chat in here and to be honest, the reports are piling up. If you could do the team a favour and post in the right place, that'd be fab. I don't like using my headmistress voice!
  20. Where was it and why didn't you like it?
  21. Just to remind you all there is a more casual thread for non model chat in the banter and moans thread. Honestly, just post in there rather than clogging this thread with chit chat and vague statements grasping at straws. Ta.
  22. Noticeably much colder this evening. Really taken a dive temperature wise. Even the cat isn't liking it, he's sprawled out by the radiator which is rare for him.
  23. Unusually for me, I'm not even longing for snow and I LOVE snow. Just want heat and the sun back. Maybe I'm still traumatised from being a hermit for a week during Beast from the East!

    Did you know.

    Posts have been removed because they were passive aggressive digs at moderation decisions and unnecessary. You may not like some of the decisions that are made, but we are always happy to explain why that decision was made. We're not going to please everybody, it's impossible and you may sometimes feel that you have had posts dealt with unfairly, if so please talk to us. We do get it wrong sometimes and are happy to discuss it. Furthermore stuff goes on 'behind the scenes' that we also have to respond to which may not be entirely clear or appropriate to discuss on the open forum. Making digs elsewhere on the forum is not the way to go about it.

    Members Photos - Show Yourself !

    We're in The Lounge! Off topic is kind of the main feature ☺ Look, no ones saying compliments aren't OK or jokey conversation, but we do have younger readers here and also those that find that sort of thing difficult to navigate, so in the interest of making the forum suitable for all, we have to make sure it stays somewhat appropriate. But, admittedly, even I'm not entirely sure where the balance is on the model threads
