  1. A few fence panels have blown over here, they were rotten anyway.
  2. Recently found these from Feb 1991 in East Leeds. I remember that winter well.
  3. Typical.... I fly to Sweden on the 25th Feb. Now I don't want Snow to stop trains or the flight, it's guaranteed to happen
  4. There was, apparently. Looked like a picture perfect Christmas Card scene on Austhorpe Rd.
  5. H&S got hold of winters and made them fit the snowflake era Seriously though, i've always been one to not expect much in winter unless there's an easterly or north easterly airflow with alot of moisture.
  6. A work colleague is in Bishop Auckland and it's heavy rain with sleet intermixed.
  7. Yeah, don't expect it to happen. I'm expecting and checking nothing till the NW app starts beeping snow alerts. Makes the suprise more special if there's juicy PPN.
  8. With all the hype for next week, i've not seen a single chart for this weekend's weather at all. How bad is it going to be?
  9. The charts look interesting, must admit. I'm remaining cautious but optimistic though! I've skype meetings first thing on the 30th and 31st next week so I don't need to leave first thing.
  10. It's hard finding out information in the model threads, i'm just gonna hide in here I think! Oh, It's 24 years tonight since the Great Yorkshire Dump of 25th Jan 1995. An event still to be matched or beaten here! https://www.netweather.tv/forum/topic/82340-20-years-since-the-great-yorkshire-dump/
  11. Next Friday is the 24th anniversary of the event back in Jan 1995. I wonder if this rain/snow event on Tuesday will see history repeat itself?
  12. Same here, though I don't have pics of 1995 😞
  13. Can I get excited yet? As horrid as it'll be now i'm not 11, I still remember the joy of opening the curtains on that day back in Feb 1991 to this:
  14. Are the winds set to increase overnight for our region?
  15. Ooh, will check here.. might be selective freezing rain, not freezing on everything yet.
  16. Had my lights flicker and UPS switch back and fourth to battery a few times in LS15... It's raining but doesn't appear to be freezing rain.
  17. Since the heating V A/C war of winter 2012/13 (A/C won 😚..) and me ignoring the thermostat settings, dad getting whopping bill in 2013/14 winter 😈, we have a new boiler and individual thermostats on radiators now. 10.30pm-6.30am the thermostat is set to 17ºC, 6.30am-9am it's 21ºC, 9am-2pm it's 20ºC and 2pm-10.30pm it's back to 21ºC. I don't have the radiator on in my room but the house is comfortable for father, which is fine for me.

    First weekend that i've not had the aircon running! Dreading the cost but having a house at 22ºC and not a tiny bedroom at 39ºC makes it so worth it, even if it took 6 years to get a heatwave strong enough to properly use it.

    It's the humidity and general design of our homes which makes heatwaves unbearable. It was noticeable coming back from high 30's in California to a London Heathrow in high 20's the other year. I would happily spend a day in 40ºC low humidity heat than our humid yuck that is unescapable without air con. Can't really moan about it though as this heatwave and a decent Summer was long overdue, it's almost as rare as a proper Winter these days!
  20. Envious of the storm to my east. Looks like a right whopper!
  21. Mine has added about £45 to the bill this Summer, according to the smart meter.....

    Nooo don't want it any warmer. Spent enough already running the fleet of portable air conditioners at home...... Despite being more tolerant to heat, it finally got to me with coming home to a hot house after work so on it went. I should invest in a central system.

    I used to hate the hot weather and stuffy environments, till I became involved with freelance mascot/charity work. Inside a costume, temperatures rise above 40ºc, most don't have cooling but mine has fans inside the head to help draw out hot air caused by breathing and draw in fresh air through the mouth/eyes. Keeping the head cool really helps, even if the body is hot. I often forget i'm wearing a fleece jacket till someone comments how I am not melting in weather like this. It's possible to get used to heat, took me years to build up the tolerance.
  24. Sun has made a hazy appearance here in East Leeds. Took long enough...
