  1. I don't profess to know a lot about interpreting the models etc. I leave that to the knowledgeable folk on here , but my opinion for what it's worth is any sort of respite from this awful Atlantic driven crud is more than welcome, and as f far as I'm concerned Winter starts on Dec 21st despite the Met offices love for tidy statistical purposes. Plenty of time for proper winter weather yet, bitterly cold weather before Christmas is like looking for Lord Lucan riding around on Shergar.
  2. A nice dry ,cold and sunny run up to Christmas will help the retail sector no end.
  3. Sounds very much like my childhood in the 60's,single glazing, no central heating and one coal fire. Our woodburner has had a few logs on it this evening though.

    Best and worst winters

    Best that I can really recall was 78/79, closely followed by 81/2, I can remember 62/3 ,but not with the same detail, The worst, too many to mention, but 87/88 and 13/14 spring to mind as being particularly crap,
  5. Very pleasant in Frome this afternoon, fire might be lit later on to take chill off the room.

    Medical issues

    Thankfully I don't suffer with Gout Mark, but I've found that taking Statins every day plays havoc with my joints.
  7. Mornings getting darker now, so sleeping longer. I do like the darker evenings though, get home from work light the woodburner , and settle in.

    Just come back from Italy Mark, it's as hot here as it is there, I don't want it any hotter than this when I start back tomorrow.
