  1. Yet again going to miss out, its always too far west, to far east, too far south or this time too far north... On the few times any snow does reach here its just a dusting, dont think its possible to get heavy snow in Gloucester.
  2. A very slight dusting this morning, which at least gave the picture postcard scenes but also invariably highlighted the amount of idiots with driving licences they shouldn't have...
  3. All in all pretty rubbish and underwhelming so far, not even seen a falling flake.

    Where is the worst place you have lived and why?

    Oxford without a doubt.

    Towns with no traffic lights

    I use several major roundabouts with traffic lights on them on my commute to and from work and, funnily enough, the traffic flows much better on the occasions when the lights fail... I also find that a lot of traffic lights along roads are poorly timed, so that the twonk who speeds can get through all the lights on green, where as those who obey the speed limit has each set of lights change to red just before they reach them, in a frustrating stop start journey which must be bad for pollution and the environment!
  6. surprise surprise, whenever snow is forecast here and the warnings come out sure enough it never arrives. Unwanted wind storm though different matter....
  7. Little bit of blue sky appearing, most welcome after the dank grey and wet weather of the last few days.
  8. Had a nice little covering to wake up to this morning, at least Im not in the no snow club anymore....!
  9. Just going to be the usual rainfest in Gloucester again!
  10. A firm vote for dry cold and frosty, if we can't have snow. Absolutely no to wind and rain - have enough of that all year...

    is it autumn or is it winter?

    From a southern based perspective, it is very much Autumn and arguably also the first week or two in December is too most years. Spring tends to start around the third week of February, after that date it takes exceptional weather to get any snow lying more than a handful of hours. March is definitely spring.
  12. Complete waste of time moving back to GMT, still needed to put the light on this morning when I got up so no benefit there, but now I will also be leaving work in the dark. Whilst the total amount of daylight will reduce, so neither time zone would alter that fact, at least the descent to darkness would have been more gradual.
  13. The initial forecast was for a rapid deterioration from the 18th October, so I would say it is already a bust, even if we ended up in a mobile westerly regime in the end.
  14. Another hot and sunny day here, kids have been in and out of the paddling pool most of the day.
