  6. I woke unusually early this morning at 5:20 am and heard the combination of rain and the lovely sound of the dawn chorus which I have not for a long time. The temperature is 11°C but feels more like 9°C. When I lived in Scotland the early 90's the winters were very frosty and if they were not frosty there was hail (heavy showers) making everything look white. The frosts in Scotland were so severe that they made the washing look as though they had been heavily starched and as I was living with my parents and sister in a stone cottage, the inside of the windows were also covered in frost. I have never experienced a severe frost like that even when I moved to Northumberland in the mid 90's or during the last severely cold winters.

  8. The sun has now appeared. It is very sunny now but still quite cold. This morning's light frost is the first frost of the meteorological winter.

  10. It is 8:15 am and it is lovely crisp morning with light frost. The sky is clear but there is a haze in the horizon of the sky. The temperature is 3° C but feels more like 1° C. I am still waiting for the sun to appear. There is frost on the roofs and the cars but very little on the lawns.
