  2. There have been some decrease of snow for Russia and slight increases in sea ice cover:
  3. It is a pity snow cannot be shared more equally, I would not mind half of what they get or even more as I live in an noisy area with heavy traffic, 24 hours a week as it dampness background noise.
  4. Good Morning Tom, it is lovely to see you. It is a cool Saturday morning and it was 3 Celsius at 7:30 am. There was a light frost on the lawns of the back and front garden, as well as the roofs, and tops of vehicles. Then the sun came and the frost on the quickly disappeared when the sun's rays reached the lawn. It will be colder tonight. I hope that this won't be the last of the cold weather and that we see more later on. I love the cold fresh feeling of frost as I feel more energised. Sadly it is not as beautiful as the frosts that we had in the late 60's in Ashington in NE Northumberland. When it was cold and snowy in the 60's my cheeks would go very rosy but even in the past winters that never happened to me. I think it was part due to the fact that Ashington was three miles away from the sea. Yes, the winters in the 60's were very memorable and I have a lot of happy memories. Except I do not remember the winter of 1962 and 1963 as I was in production (as my mother was pregnant with me in Edinburgh, Scotland) she was worried that snow would not have gone by the time I was born at the end of July in 1963. It is very sad when shops close down, especially Waitrose as it is a very good quality of supermarket. Living in Ashington, it was the co-operative stores for us, along with the co-op butchers who even delivered groceries to my grandparents as well as the large co-op arcade department store with the many shops inside. Sadly there is only one co-op grocery store left as the rest of them closed even the co-op arcade department store which had it's own ball room and bank. Winters were definitely colder in the 60's and even in the 70's in London during the snow-less winters but if there was no snow, there would be frost or hail. I wish the jet stream would park itself further South down to North Africa and the Azores high would disappear. I am having Cheese Rigatoni with asparagus for breakfast and it is quite delicious. I hope Collete will have a good day at work. Take care Tom and Collete and I hope you will both have an upside Saturday.

  6. Earnest is very earnest about how much he earns and how many times he meets up with his friend Bernie to go and have a Bernie steak at the Bernie Inn. Ern the Little Tern would do a good turn for his friend Rose, the Roseate Gull by sharing his freshly caught fish with her.

  8. It is the same over here in South Ockendon, the wind is noisy and I have heard a few bangs as though heavy items have fallen down. The winds are blowing a hooley outside, the rain is lashing down.
  9. If you can see the Welsh hills, it's going to rain. If you can't see them then it's raining. There's also the definition of an English summer: three hot days and a thunderstorm.
  10. Silso Sunspot Index has 5 sun spotless days for January. It usually reports less sunspots than Spaceweather, I wonder if they have changed the method on how they count sun spots.
