    A shame Autumn rarely arrives on the 6th of September and winter rarely arrives on the 6th of December, it must be so boring for mildies as they have the next 7 months to chase high pressure and warmth, winter only started 3 months ago but the chase for cold and snow has long been over, in 3 months time it will still only be June but mildies and joe public never seem get fed up of warmth and high pressure though, i wonder if coldies would get fed up of chasing cold and snow if there was a chance of it for 7-8 months a year

    it felt like it was only yesterday when we had that Halloween heatwave, winter came and went so quickly as december felt like an autumn month and February felt like a mixture of autumn, spring and winter the summer months usually feel like summer in the south even though we don't often see temps above 25c, plus september feels like a summer month aswell, march does not feel like a winter month though and it wouldn't surprise me if i didn't see a flake of snow this month

    the clocks could easily go forward in the first week of march as it would be getting light at around 8am even in western scotland which isn't really that late, personally i wouldn't mind if we went to BST in early March but i hope the clocks always go back to GMT at the end of October cos i like it getting dark at 4pm in December

    felt spring like yesterday afternoon, then thankfully it quickly cooled down at about 4pm and it felt like winter again, i hate spring like weather in feb anyway as we have many many months of mild/warm weather in this country as it is albeit without the wall to wall sun like we had yesterday, its only been just over 3 months since we last had a pleasant mild/warm day here, but joe public make out as if winter goes on and on and on, its only about 10 months till the sun is very weak again

    we had 8 months of mild/warm weather last year, its only been chilly/cold and dark for about 3 months, that warm spell we had in october was only just over 3 months ago, who knows we may have to wait at least 10 months till we see snow again, i saw my first snow in 25 months on monday and it only lasted for about 12 hours, imagine if we didn't have a warm sunny day for 25 months, i say warm because its dosen't matter whether its 23c and sunny or 32c and sunny, where as 3c isn't really good enough in winter as it has to be 0c for snow to last on the ground and i haven't seen a single ice day this winter, people only want it to be 30c in summer for statistical reasons, it doesn't actually need to be that hot for people to enjoy summer 23-28c is more than good enough

    Night or day watching falling snow?.

    night cos that's usually when it settles here

    i hope we never stay on BST in winter because February would feel like a spring month esp if its a mild day as it would be getting dark between 6pm and 7pm, i know the mornings would be darker on BST but at that time of day temps are at or near their lowest anyway

    if we're being pedantic i's say the light evenings are for 5 months of the year and the dark evenings are for 4 months of the year, the rest are the inbetween months

    3 months out of 12 is long?

    i doubt joe public would have noticed the change yet, sunset is only about 15 mins later now than it was on the shortest day, obviously if you study the sunrise and sunset times everyday you are going to notice it though, the end of the month is when there is a significant difference in daylight really, the dark cold season is such a short season though, it baffles me why people moan about it, it only felt like yesterday it was still summer now we only a have a few weeks of proper winter left, if it was early july we'd still have over 2 months left where we could realistictly get warm/hot weather, snow in march is probably rarer here than warmth in october
