  1. I sometimes wonder whether us folk on low ground and not far from the coast are the first ones to begin to feel the effects of global warming. I guess it stands to reason with warming seas right on our doorstep. This is the most snowless winter in the 20 years I’ve lived here.
  2. Still a member of the no snow club here on the Lincs coast as well. There’s been snow to the north, snow to the south and snow just a few miles west inland of here. I think there’s some kind of North Lincs snow shield has developed over us. Oh well, roll on summer.
  3. Yep, there’s more wedgies than I used to get from the school bullies, and more straw clutching than a thatcher about to fall off a roof. 😆
  4. That would be great, but we need dry and warm and not wet and warm.
  5. Even here oop north it reached 19c if I remember right. If that’s not climate change then I don’t know what isn’t.
  6. Didn’t it hit 20c last February or the one before, so it’s quite possible.....and desirable from my point of view. 😎
  7. I don’t think you need happy pills to see the potential that some are seeing in the charts. It’s the others that need to stop taking the hallucinogenic pills that’s making them see these fantastic charts that they keep banging on about. The outlook is dreadful, but for rain and not snow. 😐
  8. Well I’ve put away the snow shovel in the shed. Put the thermals, gloves and bobble hat away in the wardrobe and stored the skis and snow boots back in the loft for the winter. For me this winter is a complete bust. In all seriousness though, there’s very little in the way of even a glimmer of hope in the model output, and we’re now looking into February. I just want this miserable, wet dross done with now and some spring sunshine and warmth, and more especially dry weather. Here’s to next winter where I’m sure some people will already be predicting that the cold is ‘nailed’. 🤣
  9. To be quite honest, I’ve grown so weary at looking at model output this winter, I’ve now given up with it and now just have a quick glimpse in every 2 or 3 days. I’m really not all that bothered about the cold anymore these days, especially with the hindrance snow would cause to the vaccination programme. What I am very concerned about though is the amount of rain that might fall over the coming weeks. Rivers are full to the brim around here and fields are lying under water. I really don’t think it will take much now to cause serious flooding issues. With that in mind, at the moment I think I’
  10. Well if you’re allowed to have nailed on cold, then surely I can have nailed on mild. So here goes: I think the mild is pretty much nailed today with little chance of cold. ( Let’s see if a bit of reverse psychology works here) 😬
  11. Are we allowed to say ‘Nailed on mild’ on this forum or is that classed as swearing to coldies? 😬
  12. I’m afraid because most of what you’re reading on here is hope casting or even dream casting without any real scientific backup. We can all hope for certain things in life but it doesn’t mean we’re going to get them. Personally I’d love a nice prolonged warm dry spell, but I doubt I’ll get one of those either.
  13. Broadly speaking that proverb is true as there’s always a lag in the seasons in response to the sun. In truth though to us humans, February can feel more springlike. If you get a sunny day in Feb you can feel the heat from the sun on your skin, that coupled with much longer day length, it makes the month just a little more bearable. As you were though, we’ll have to wait and see what a 21st century globally warmed February is like. 😬
