  1. So in the end, just a normal spell of coldish weather (wind chill being the main reason for the raw feel), my horoscope did not far much better, I haven't become rich and met a gorgeous woman either...

      No uppers of > -10C hPa for three days in late february and a VERY cold feel is not normal

  2. Right, got some walking to organise this week-end, best waiti for next week to tag a few days off you reckon?

  3. Great day up in the hills, still a fair bit of snow left if the fetichists on the model thread can lure themselves out of their computer and sun, sun sun. Kept the walk high level for most of the day, quickly up the ridge to Higher Shelf Stones then Bleaklow then Cock Hill. Glorious sunset too. If this weather could last for a month or two....mmmm

      Rotten luck chap, hope you get up there in the not too distant future.

      Underfoot ok, wet but nothing major. Crossing snow patches was a mare, one sec it's hardnened stuff supporting you, the next mush you sink in...

      Lol, I've been up to my waist many a time on top of there. All part of the fun, sometimes. :)

      Its still terrible underfoot in low lying mainly shaded areas in the midlands, excellent freezing ground weather for later in the week, great for countryside walking :)

  4. Lovely day, a good time to switch off the computer and go out enjoy it. Bike ride in the fields, tracks and lanes of Cheshire. A long spell of high pressure is much needed, some swamps out there...

      With the later sunsets it extends the period of enjoying the outdoors later into the evening.

      Yup, the only thing I don't like about winter, short daylight hours. Hoping for a nice sunset tomorrow (and sunrise monday morning!)

    3. Bottesford

      Yes Feb is the best winter month as the sun has power and it doesn't feel like the shadows are encroaching already by 2pm!

  5. Looking forward to a failed easterly and two weeks of high pressure bringing "boring" weather! If you like snow so much, get out and go up a hill ;-)

      Try snow cover since Nov 7 til now and counting...prob be here til early April. Mountains and hills here are covered from September to July. It does get tedious

      I live on one, and im ip bigger one's most weekends.

  6. Splendid wintry hike up Bleaklow today, crisp snow, very cold, light winds, lovely!

      Yeah splendid walking weather, decent snow cover countryside near solihull

  7. Wow, thundersnow! Bonkers weather here...

      Stopped now. Squall reminded me of one I encountered on Anglezarke. I did not have the luxury of being a house mind... ;-)

      Worst of it over here, too. Great while it lasted!

    4. La Bise

      Yep, was on doorstep when lightning stroke too, good timing!

  8. Wild weather today and that's just commuting...Must be fun up there!

  9. Well, right weather for a nice walk tomorrow and might be minded to stay out, quiet spot to let the rain go away in the morning and more sunday walking...

  10. Recovering from my outing in the hills yesterday, sometimes there is too much snow, a pair of skis would have been better yesterday...

    1. Polar Maritime

      Polar Maritime

      Yes to much soft snow on the hills yesterday, I bet your legs are stiff this morning ! I nearly went out myself, but glad i gave it a miss, good exercise though !

      It was challenging, particularly with upper part of Dr Gates and PW Snake to Kinder untouched, first footprints were mine which is something on a saturday afternoon...

  11. A superlative day of winter hiking, from Edale to Glossop via the tops. Kinder was like the arctic. Plenty of winter if you are willing to get out...

      What sort of snow depths do they have up there? I am thinking of heading up that way on Saturday.

    3. Eugene

      Eugene

      Yes the cotswolds were excellent yesterday for walking, plenty of snow around and really cold temps

    4. La Bise

      Non compacted, a good 20/30 cm, more when it drifted. Main path compacted a bit more but still quite soft. Some ice on occasion, if going up Grindbrook Clough be warned.

  12. Day off tomorrow, time to spend quality time up in the hills of the Peak District where there is plenty of snow!

    1. Polar Maritime

      Polar Maritime

      Yes plenty here, enjoy !

  13. I'm starting a "Snowballz" fans club, who wants to join? ;-)

      Lol, she's a good looking girl (if that is her in her pics) and knows her stuff (far more so than me) so i'd be in!

      I certainly admire her posts although they are way over my head :-)

  14. So, cold spell upon us. I know what to do, stay put on my butt and look for the breakdown in deep FI... ;-)

      Seriously, I'm so going up them hills this week-end, tent and all...yippeeee! Frozen mud! Snow!

  15. Bike ride in the Cheshire plains today, the only crop farmers will grow around here is rice, cultivated fields are swamps and woodlands like bayous. Dry weather and lots of it needed. Suits me fine too, makes hiking and wildcamping a lot nicer ;-)

  16. Models now are asa about as useful in predicting medium range weather as Mark Lawrenson is at predicting football results...

      He's better than most of the challengers though!

      Lawros predictions are usually the predictable 2-0 scoreline for a big club against a smaller club!

  17. Might have some snow to play with tomorrow, the joys of being a hill walker rather than stuck in front of screen, moaning eh.... ;-)

      Living close to upland areas helps.

      And sadly a little too late for the xmas break but at least journey to/from work will not be so damp!

      Hopefully being in the east we will see some good sunny spells which should make it feel springlike even.

  19. Nevermind cold, it's dry weather we need know otherwise the whole bloody country is going turn into a big puddle...

    1. Summer Sun

      Summer Sun

      Yes Dry, sunny and mild weather is what's required and quickly

      Why not cold, sunny and dry gavin

      We need some harsh frosts to freeze all the water, it will take months to dry it all up with weak solar output even if mild

  20. Felt tropical arriving in 6c Manchester Airport after a week-end of freezer temps in Geneva...

  21. Ooooh, I got a parcel from China today!!! Lovely...

  22. Desolant de voire le grand Martin Petrov porte les couleurs de l'infame Bolton...

  23. Sheep dog trials on More4...brilliant!
