  1. Hoping for a thunderstorm tomorrow, hopefully they won't miss us this time.
  2. That and they are 600m+ above sea level
  3. Nearly at the end of this bit of precip, so will stay up until it finishes, I'm expecting any after this will turn sleety.
  4. 0.0°C and still hammering it down, up to about an inch now edit: oh wow!! 50p sized flakes, the heaviest I've seen for a while
  5. Hammering it down, 1cm so far.
  6. Wow it never ceases to surprise me how fast it can go from soaking wet to white!
  7. That was a fast drop in temp 1.1°C now and heavy snow starting to stick!
  8. Heavy sleet here, flakes only just detectable in the rain. 2.2°C
  9. Second round of heavy snow! not sticking at this level this time though. Lovely big flakes though.
  10. Heavy wet snow from that last shower, sticking above 200m.
  11. Well quite windy for a time but nothing to write home about, worst winds to the south. Very strong up on the tops though.
  12. Indeed. They're not ramming it down our throats, you can choose not to listen you know Snipper, switch of your telly or ignore the media once in a while. I seem to manage it!
  13. Ah that's a shame! We'd be in trouble if we wiped out all the insects though! Im not a fan of heat myself, get above 25°C and it gets difficult, especially if you're exposed on the moors!
  14. I work up at Dovestones for the RSPB. I monitor the populations for butterflies etc. Last year was terrible after the April cold spell disrupted things a lot, one of the worst years for butterflies and it affected the birds food supplies. We would be alright with a March cold spell but into April and May it gets more dodgy. Dont get me wrong I enjoy the snow whenever it turns up, but much better if it's seasonal.
  15. If it's going to warm up, I hope it stays that way. I don't want a sudden cold snap in later spring, like last year. It wreaked havoc for wildlife especially insects and butterflies.
