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

    tbh, if i saw a girl walking down the street singing doo wah diddy diddy, id think she'd escaped from some institution!
  3. lovin this quiet cool calm weather, perfect winter for me.
  4. In Memoriam

    '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.
  6. In Memoriam

  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.
  16. is there?.... i was just thinking this morning the first tentative steps towards one was taking place. ok its a very long shot/straw cluth, but the noaa anomaly charts are now suggesting for the 8-14 day time period pressure to fall to our south, where once it was higher. a strengthening azores high that might become negatively tilted, pressure rising over northern europe. ok... this is a very long shot, but IF this comes to be reality, then it wouldnt take much for an easterly to occur IF pressure rose over northern europe/scandinavia, and IF the azores high tilted the jet negatively thus directing the atlantic systems south of the uk into southern europe.. there, see, anyone can present a reasonable cold ramp if they tried! sounds like a northen soul disco lol (as opposed to a john travolta type set up) i note someone has no sense of humour posting confused emoticons on your posts... lol.
  17. First memory as a child

    tbh i cant say which was my earliest, i have no clear one memory that i can say was. but i have several flashes of memory - like being in a pram with my sisnter although i was able to walk. i think i didnt want too and it was cold so being in a nice warm pram was appealling. i remember my dad building an asbestos sheet shed at the side of our coalhouse. i remember my first day at school - well walking there anyway. i remember playing with my younger sisters - hiding under the setee and building dens out of the cusions.
  18. Things that tick you off?

    i like chomping on a nice pair...... oh hold on
  19. tbh thats pretty much a cert imho.. the question is though, how long will that pattern last?
  20. maybe they think a strong atlantic jet thats due is something that historically is hard to shift, so history suggests a proper cold spell is unlikely? but then we had 2013....
  21. ay, but dont forget, those winters werent the norm, i was young but dont recall such winters after '63, and the early 70's were pretty mild and snowless.
  22. how dare us sad old things not revel in snow... i wonder why this is, maybe the offending poster will understand when they become a 'sad old thing'
  23. i most agree with you here, but surely after watching the models so long plus experience you can get 'a feeling' for something based on past experiences? no?... in saying that, i dont get any feeling that things will become cold/wintry, now the jet is gaining strength and has the uk in its sights.
  24. ... i know, i didnt say otherwise, i really dont listen to lrf's.... ive found i can guess as accurately tbh. i hope that those who endevour to try to interpret them continue and that one day they really will be more accurate. well if recent history is anything to go by, you could well be right. this strong jet expected just after crimbo isnt likely to go anywhere fast, and although it might not be continuously mild, proper cold snaps/spells will be very hard to come by until that jet weakens.
  25. its looking like there will be no 'bad' winter, no repeat of say 78-9 , id have thought the best coldies can hope for is a 2 week freeze late jan/early feb. many would welcome that, but tbh i doubt we will even get half of that.
