  1. More like walks into a pub showing the World Cup Final, and asks them to put University Challenge on ;p
  2. Hah! Anyone who gripes are welcome to spend a day working with me in sub zero temps.
  3. As much as I'm not enamoured of another cold spell, I hope the model forecasts firm up soon so I can plan what days to take off. Keeping my fingers crossed it doesn't last too long- was enjoying the daffs and crocus that were starting to appear!
  4. Lol, I was beginning to think I was the only person on here looking forward to Spring. Happy about the milder temps next week.
  5. We were in Menden then, before we returned to the UK. Those German winters have always been my benchmark for proper snow
  6. When I lived in Germany back in the 80s I made an igloo with some friends, although as it was in a public space (we lived in a block of flats at the time) we didn't sleep in it overnight. I think yours looks a lot neater than ours did, as we made bricks by rolling snow into big balls and then shaping them- the ice cream tubs sound like a better idea!
  7. And very strong wind gusts following on behind- short and intense.
  8. Just had an very short but intense thunderstorm pass south of Brum city centre. Several very bright flashes of lightning with quite loud thunder. Probably woke some people up I should imagine! Looks like we've got some more heading in from the West.
  9. Wish it was this mild all winter.

  12. Dreading the possibility of a snowy winter this year, as I couldn't afford to do any of the insulation/ heating work on the workshop. Any days below freezing is miserable to work in!

    Sky in Brum just after midday.
  14. Hurricane Ophelia

    One of the joys of being self employed- I took the decision last Thursday to take Monday off. Too many roadworks/ building works/ scaffolding along my walk in to risk.
  15. Had some heavy rain and wind round about 7pm, but it's dead quiet now. I was looking forward to being lulled to sleep by the wind and rain.
