  1. Fog soon rolled in after I first posted so a foggy spell and it's now sunny and warming rapidly. Temp 10.2C, Barometer 1031mb falling, Wind F2 SSW, Rainfall Trace
  2. Sunny Sheffield at 6.2C +2C above normal. Rainfall unchanged A dry mild winter a lack of storms which you'd normally get when it's mild. For me winter ended when I cut the lawn on Jan 6th it needs it again but its bloomin wet so catch 22. Needs to be cut but shouldn't as it's wet but it won't dry out because it's too long. I'll do it later this afternoon.
  3. A mild misty start to the day. Cooler than of late Temp 4.3C, Barometer 1031mb steady, Wind F2 SSW, Rainfall nil

    As a boy of 8 he was playing in a local park in Sheffield when a plane came low over the roof tops they could see the pilot waving so they waved back unaware that the air craft was in serious trouble. The pilot to save the children lives aborted the landing and tried to climb over the trees but crashed instead killing all aboard For 75 years he has been attending the memorial cleaning it tidying it up. The guilt he feels gets stronger as he gets older one thing he wanted was a fly past on the 75th anniversary. A chance meeting with Dan Walker one morning who was walking his dog eventually led to this fly past in Endcliffe park Sheffield. At around 9000 people turned up at Endcliffe park this morning too honour the aircraft crew and the man who has tended the memorial all these years. An emotional day and it's nice too see there are still some caring people in this world of hurt. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-47323045 The original interview The gentleman deserves a knighthood

    Citys poor defending coming back to haunt them. In fact city only managed to score when Sch fell asleep when defending and gifted them a goal.
