  1. I start looking forward to winter in Late July but only because I love the log burner, and the anticipation of Christmas. Once Christmas is over (and this is true I take the tree down boxing day) the wheel has turned for me,from then on , I am looking and planning for summer. I don't forget about spring and autumn, but they are not the key points for me. probably because for a large part of my adult life,the season's all blurred into one.
  2. can I ask that there be a glossary for updated abbreviations? last winter in particular with the increased interest in SSW Sudden stratospheric warming,the letters being added into posts got overwhelming. with more advances,theories and such,if you cant read up regularly ,its easy to get lost. Also,and I think its brilliant, that regular posters respond to each others posts with real names as opposed to forum ids. It can however get a smidge confusing,so if your ok with your real name being used in a public forum,perhaps an aka after your id? Thanks and keep up the good work
  3. I decided last week,when the heat looked like sticking around NOT to put my above ground.pool up. I wish I had now,but I know if I do,this glorious weather will be jinxed. Shockingly.unscientific I know but Im not going to chance it,no matter how lovely a.swim would be.
  4. Ok this is a moan....pure and simple!!! I am cold,fed up with being cold and spending more and more money keeping my house warm. I am sick of the fleeting glimpses of sunshine and the taunting warmth it gives. I am grateful I have the cash available to buy more wood and coal and electric....but the suns free!!! So sod off weather patterns that give cloud cover and cold winds!.
  5. i keep looking in the mod thread for a consistent theme of 'light at the end of the tunnel'. it isn't showing at the moment,I'll know when it is by the balanced posters I trust,(some of them are coldies,but fair'ies' if you know what I mean) I just hope the weather perks up soon,to warmer more varied options. perhaps we have been so spoiled with warmer late winters and early springs,that's why this winter seems so very long. you can.understand why pagans needed so many celebrations through the year.......they had to have something to look forward to when times (weather) was so bad. But if we don't get a break soon......a sacrifice to weather gods might be in order!!!!! unscientific i know,but suggestions for likely candidates on a postcard please!
  6. sorry.on a phone and my reply is in the middle of your post. cold fingers trying to work a small touchscreen,another consequence of cold weather? .:-)
