    Worst ever TV programme?

    love island (itv), and the programme about a chicken shop in clapham, sw london, which is on at the moment. oh and x factor, bgt and most of the reality rubbish
  8. i agree. the only thing which makes it darker is the weather. the sun is fairly consistent!
  9. cant wait until the mist and fog sets in now, in my first country autumn in many years. let those nights draw in!

    Need Help On The Site/forum?

    i'm sorry but i'm finding this site so painfully slow now that i'm wondering whether to give up. it cant be my internet stick because all other sites i use, eg thebbc site, are all fine. the forum area is especially slow. even posting this meagre post has taken ages. very very frustrating.

    BBC Weather Monthly Outlook...

    yep rob is the best, but i still don't get the snow line unless you live in the far north and on high ground. maybe rob knows something that we don't

    BBC Weather Monthly Outlook...

    who writes the bbc outlook, that last line about snow must be a joke, or a windup

    Photos Of Late Season Snowfalls

    i witnessed the snow in june event. i lived in rural oxfordshire and it was amazing to wake up to a snowy scene in june. i have a pic somewhere of me in the snow in the garden. it melted by late afternoon i think. i was pretty young so all a bit hazy!

    The Great Snowstorm Of March 1886

    very interesting. what i find amusing is the fact that there was "no serious interruption to street traffic" in london. so we coped better in 1886 than 2009. great

    Winter 1990-91 The great December snowstorm/February freeze

    i remember well the february freeze. i had recently moved to London to start my first job and was living fairly centrally. the snow was incredible, coinciding with one of Buchan's spells, which i personally am not convinced by, but are a bit of fun. I remember trudging through deep snow in covent garden, nearly a foot of it. the lovely thing about that spell was that the snow was pure powder, blowing around the london streets. the odd thing is that the travel networks seemed to be quite well equipped. these days its mayhem here in a bit of sleet. I havent seen anything like it in London since, and i'll have probably moved from the city by the time it happens again! anyway a very memorable event
