  1. I guarantee you will be building a snowman within the vicinity tomorrow at some stage, lol
  2. Living in Belfast and temp now is 4.2 so gradually the surface temp is dropping. For those Snow-lovers (like myself) the great news is that the 500-850hpa temp is also dropping further, thus the precipitation moving across the province tonight and tomorrow will be falling as snow to low levels. The 'dam' is already at -5 right across a large swathe of the UK, so rain and sleet are less likely. Since there isn't a weather front crossing Northern Ireland tonight and tomorrow means we just get the precipitation from showers (sourced from troughs). Will be good though to have some nice snowball f
  3. Hey Will, just wondering if you've had any joy with the Wx station, or whether you got a new / better station for Christmas?
  4. @Microclimate - I can confirm the brassica are indeed infected by Downy mildew; Snipper also mentioned a link relating to the mildew and YES - please do destroy, and do NOT compost, due to the mildew spores. Do you have any brassica plants at all you can salvage, such as Sprouts, or Cauliflowers etc??
  5. Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Officer asks a young engineer fresh out of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, "And what starting salary are you looking for?" The engineer replies, "In the region of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package." The interviewer inquires, "Well, what would you say to a package of five weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every two years, say, a red Corvette?" The engineer sits up straight and says, "Wow! Are you
  6. Very nice and the aroma of white Lilium is really nice. 'Stargazer' is another beautiful hybrid you might have tried over the years?...
  7. Drivers' bad habits; many will overtake you, only to end up 2 or 2 car lengths by the time you get to end of the carriageway. It is totally futile to overtake another vehicle if you are only going to end up being so many yards in front - not lots of miles! It makes sense to want to overtake a slow-moving vehicle, such as a tractor (within reason of course). You also have these idiots, who will overtake a cyclist, only to then make a left-hand turn into a side street roughly 50 yards in front of the cyclist, what on earth is the point in that? There is no benefit in overtaking unless you are
  8. @Spikecollie - how are your little green hoppers coming along? Got any picture updates? I love frogs, they're my favourite amphibian; the Fire Salamander is quite nice also, but frogs are more fun to watch.
  9. Anybody looking forward to some of the upcoming snooker events? Ronnie O'Sullivan is set for a busy season after agreeing to play in the new Home Nations series, starting with October's English Open in Manchester.O'Sullivan, who last played in the World Championship in April, did not play until December last year. Can't wait to watch the English Open (October), and the Irish Open in November.
  10. @Snowycat - the trouble that your bean plants faced is most likely due to the soil being too cold at the time you transplanted them. I encountered this a few years back and had to learn from that mistake. The roots have had a cold shock unfortunately, but if it is any consolation, hopefully the rest of your plants thrive & flourish throughout the remainder of the year!
  11. Some interesting suggestions from folk on here, however, the cost would be considerably high for some of the aforementioned ideas. A short-term (albeit a big help) would be to reduce soot! Soot—also known as black carbon—heats up the atmosphere because it absorbs sunlight. Black things do. That is basic physics. For years the institutions that focus on climate policy have played down the role of pollutants such as black carbon that stay in the atmosphere for a short time, that soot has been discovered to be a leading cause of snow and ice melting in the Arctic and the Himalayas, soot has a muc
  12. Now studying on Britannica... Just a pitty the forum topic in the "Serious Discussion" section, for " Disappearance of bees" is no longer accepting replies; would have been great to reply with some facts etc.

      Think the serious discussion is read only till you have made required number of posts in other threads.

      We had issues in the past with new members joining purely to push their agenda in serious threads, so you have to make 15 posts in the weather/climate sections to show you have joined the forum for the purpose it is intended! :)
