    i love the seasons, i love mild februarys, it reminds me of my childhood exploring the countryside. making dens in hedgerows, sheltering from the rain, hearing the mistle thrush singing as the mild sw wind blows dark clouds across the sky. many records from the mid 60's remind me of these times.. overlanders 'michelle'. 'keep on running' , 'uptight', 'little by little' (dusty).. then back to our coal fired home to watch 'robinson crusoe' , jackanory, blue peter, thunderbirds .. this is why the bartlett to me is welcome. i love the spring. the first catkins, celendines, ladysmock, nests, the countryside in spring is heaven.
    i love the heat in summer, the hot southerly draft, 'trance' music is so apt, i love the thunderstorms too.
    in the notorious winter of 81, i had to work outdoors , ive never been so cold. i felt sick and numb with it. i think thats when i lost interest in snow/cold.

  2. What Was The Last Song You Listened To? Part 4

    'fast' eddie clark from motorhead died yesterday.... https://www.theguardian.com/music/2018/jan/11/fast-eddie-clarke-motorhead-guitarist-dies
  5. excellent post as ever knocks although why one character persists in using the 'confused' emoji seemingly on every post you make (and others) is rather confusing in itself! lol.

  7. id have thought the hinted at progression of these charts would give coldies some hope. pressure building to our north, the mean upper atlantic trough heading south, jet stream heading south for iberia... i dont like the cold but for what its worth id have thought chances of a prolonged proper cold spell later this month are pretty promising. its not looking mild to me anyway.
  8. not yet, but high pressure drifting across our north eastwards is certainly a potential for cold. its just not going to settle right, but its close
  9. weve had one attempt of a proper cold spell before crimbo, we have another now, if this pattern continues there will be at least one more opportunity by the end of the month, which is the time most likely to deliver a cold spell. one thing looks obvious, theres no prolonged mild on offer.
  10. with charts like this, there was never going to be a prolonged easterly . if little old me can understand that, why dont the 'knowledgeable'?
  11. yes you are right. its looking cold and raw at the worst currently, theres no deep cold pool to tap into. so many are being lead up the garden path yet again. but it must be said that the great beasterlies of the past often took a while to establish after a couple of weeks of messy synoptic charts which dallied with high pressure somewhere to the north of the uk. there must be a strong chance that a beasterly proper will develop later this month.
  12. indeed... i remember a run of mild winters in the early/mid 70's . there was an article on nationwide with sue lawley highlighting the mild winters and some were saying the very same things as some are now 'we dont get winters like we used to'... lol.
  13. absolutely agree...... i dont use them though because i dont understand them...lol. i note your shadow is still replying with a 'confused' emoticon. heaven knows why, they must be really dumb if they dont understand all of your posts!
  14. What Was The Last Song You Listened To? Part 4

    stunning song, just when id thought id heard all the rock songs i could take, the early 00's came out with some fantastic new tracks. this is one, along with qotsa - no one knows, go with the flow, and several others.
  15. ...... seems theres growing evidence now that the scenario described above might actually happen. the outlook into the new year certainly isnt mild, and transitory snow events might well occur. this has a very 'mid 80's' feel about it, and both 85 and 86 delivered a beast from the east.
