  1. On Friday am I'm making a long trip up to Stanhope N. Pennines to look at a house. Just me and the dog. Will I make it up there and make it back same night? Nervous about the drive as it is, let alone deep snow. Hopefully it will start on Saturday. But if earlier, I'll have to cancel.
  2. Friend in Miami said it was more like CLeethorpes on a blustery day.
  3. #Harambe. watching over us all. The Haitians ought to bill the Clinton Foundation and see if they get lucky this time. Worried about my friend on Cumberland Island, tried emailing her but no reply. Perhaps she's boarded up and split, but then she'd be able to email back. So it means she's sitting tight. Brave.
  4. I wish they'd leave weather out of politics. And vice versa. All the media does is lie - no news, just opinions. I remember when Sandy hit NJ. Their 'expert' on hurricanes was an anthropologist LOL.
  5. Watching Trump in NH said 127 people in Haiti had lost their lives. Thought it was going to be 'a bad one'. I've got a friend who's on Cumberland Isalnd just off the coast on the GA/FLA border St Mary's where there's a nuclear sub base. There are 3 very beautiful ante-bellum mansions on the island and one is her hotel. I'd expect they'd have guests. Don't like the way it's staying just off shore because it gets its energy from a long sea track.
  6. Cheers, I'm at a slightly lower altitude and just getting light sleet, but 5 miles away , it was a different story. Cold enough for a covering. Will have a look.
  7. Snowing at CO10, quite fast - and they haven't gritted the roads, so fun times tomorrow. Where's the radar on here now?
  8. Better to give her some extra $$$ and buy them there. They know all about cold weather clothes in NYC.
  9. You could include early May. My late Mum's birthday was 2nd May and it's been snowy several times, albeit on high ground in Sussex.
  10. More shots from Princeton NJ. Final tally was 3 foot. The place to be was Vermont, they got a lot more.. The true hero is the gur in the blue - one of the snow plough teams having a break in a diner. My friend said he'd never seen so many ploughs in one place before
  11. That's great but doesn't it take about a month to work it's magic? That means late Feb early March, which isn't too shabby, but nobody's in the mood for a winter wonderland by then.
  12. Exactly. This photo was taken yesterday an hour after the snow plough went through in Princeton NJ, as you can see, it'll need another pass... My friend there says they had another 12 hours blizzard conditions to go at the time. Another problem is if the car is covered, you don't want to let it freeze or you'll damage the bodywork.
  13. He probably gets it from walking around or looking out of the window. Not sure where you live, but in EA, apart from the Fens where most British veg is grown and Greens want 'left to Nature' I.e. Flooded again, the soil is too heavy for summer seasonal crops. It's boukder clay and the short Spring/summer growing season means rape, wheat, beans etc. have to be sown and germinated the previous Autumn then left to overwinter. Otherwise the soil's too cold and doesn't warm up in time. Your frost breaking down soil might be true for an allotment, but the farmers have massive tractors and kit to do all the work which amateurs rely on - like I should break up my raised beds and leave for the frosts over winter to save work, but I don't have a £100k John Deere plough. Farmers do.
