  1. Beautiful flakes falling in Wembley but settling on parked cars so far, not the ground.
  2. Lol...no not sick BD don’t worry. I think we all have a bit of that in us during proper wintery spells...it’s the excitement...and you’re so right in saying it brings out that helpful, caring side. Plus, we all know it won’t last forever so we just make the most of it on our little island. Carpe diem!
  3. Lol, it is quite a rip off in many ways but it also focuses our minds (hopefully) on our fellow man, peace and love and goodwill. Why not endorse all that with some beautiful lights and decorations. I'm not one for the full on American style house lit up to the max thing but I do have a lovely little blue spruce on the doorstep with white lights and a few Scandi decs, some lanterns accumulated over the years around the house, some with little seasonal scenes inside, some with candles. Front window will have a twiggy spray with white lights. Oh, mustn't forget the door wreath which is still in the making. Most important of all, cat will need space to sit in the window so I can't use up all of the windowsill even if I wanted to. I have to decorate my daughter's tree too which this year is multicolour lights with red, green, gold decs. Mum's inglenook bough is the last job to be done next week. Used to be real green foliage with expensive baubles, etc. This year it will be a combination of artificial and real with the lovely embellishments and white lights. She loves it and at 94 she deserves something beautiful to catch her eye. Snowy Christmas and/or new year would be the icing on the cake!
  4. Just drove from Hatfield 2c to Wembley 3c and it was rain all the way. Miserable really. Snow wouldn’t have settled anyway.
  5. Have never seen snow on porcini before and I’ve picked in Central Europe and UK. Delicious mushroom!
  6. It’s been hell, can’t breath properly, sweating like a trouper, gardening taking a back seat as too blinking hot out there and ad for the housework...well, minimal to say the least. Driving with air con or windows down sometimes is nice though. Roll on autumn
  7. I’m just a visitor as I have family in Bridport. Work place closed, children in the snow as we speak as it’s their first experience Great end to winter for them!
  8. Absolutely put them up again! Mine’s in the garden still with needles too...you’ve given me an idea have to find the lights that have been packed away though. Anyone here from Bridport? Grandson wondering when/if their weather will kick in.
  9. His name is Dave King and he uses nature to forecast seasons ahead with great success. If he gets it wrong he always admits it and gives reasons why, usually his misinterpretation of what nature is showing him. He’s improved markedly over the years I can tell you and is as successful as many scientists so don’t poo poo his methods. A wise man would use both science and centuries of handed down experience. He may not be as eloquent as some but I always check his forecasts ahead. weatherwithouttechnology.co.uk
  10. Merry Christmas to all! 11c and overcast this morning in west London, hoping for something wintry in the new year.

    In Memoriam

    A wonderful Glaswegian personality who made the weather forecast a pleasure to view on tv. He was taken too soon. RIP Ian.
