  1. Absolutely shameful forecast for today if you consider the last 4 days solid support for rain morning to early afternoon here all that time,then this morning.....ah well,maybe not.
  2. Just in from gardening work to find my own garden has taken quite a beating,no structural damage to house but debris about all over.Im not questioning the forecast,but to me its windier now than all day has been,would that be the regional consensus
  3. Same here Stormyskies,but if the 3 falls had all stuck,there might have been enough to cover the grass ect,yesterday there was a cover on the roof for a while which looked pretty,we are all of 41 mtr ASL here,yet a 3 mile journey to the town and not a sign of anything.Wonder if anyone posts from Salisbury Plain area on here,might be a bit better up there.
  4. temperature has dropped,went to get logs in and....7 flakes,first daylight spot in a while lol...actually years
  5. Only mystery on the birthday treat trip meal ect to the Isle Of Wight today,wasnt a cold wind really to my way of thinking,talk of sub zero windchill,wasnt aware,but maybe forecast possibly watered it down from last night.
  6. My birthday tomorrow,it will snow,it better lol....even flakes falling counts,ah how sad eh,years ago in Kent it was either cold or snowy,always had a party and as host was forced to give the mini skirted ladies a piggy back across the snow laden car park,now anything heavier than a chainsaw would put my back out lol......now then jtay,send some snow to me ok you are near enough to share.
  7. Anything is possible,seems a bit early to me but if he said he heard one......lol
  8. All the talk of cold and snow is all well and good but during my gardening today I saw 2 butterflies and some bees,very nice too.
  9. Just got in from not the most inspiring day doing my gardening work,face a bit glum,thought have a look in the model thread.ive now got to go to A&E to have both my sides stitched up from the levels of laughter I suffered,oh my days its the weather lol
  10. Not the most enjoyable of weeks coming up for working outdoors according to the lunch time forecast,waterproofs on and get on with it appears to be whats required.
  11. I must be loony as I love working outdoors in the cold,however get the temps over 75 and im in trouble,so each to their own,on the advice of a forum member on here I looked into the snow prospects in the SE thread,the last 4 posts all said that they had given up for another year lol. In reality,its taken many years on the Mod thread,but this year and I hope it continues,there is at last,the understanding,even to a small degree,that NOBODY,this includes Twitter superstars,the half wits who are allowed front page exposure on the Express,ect ect really know that 5 days hence and that's still pushing it,is about as far as forecasting goes,does that mean the final demise of the Mod thread of ...look at the blizzards at 384,but it wont happen are finally over...good luck with that one lol
  12. Hi Andy,im fine but people are nutters,they just think you can drive at 60 mph in dense fog and black ice,glad ive taken the day off gardening to help my friend,hope you ok and keeping Westbury FC under control lol...I still have a good old look around the non league,both round here and in London and Kent,amazing how the fortunes of clubs,both good and bad can change so dramatically in 25 years.
  13. No option but to travel at 6am to Salisbury station to help a friend,having been tailgated,hooted at,lights flashed at me in fog with vis of about 25 yards,dropped friend off.Dont know the area,get lost in the fog,end up in the city centre car park.I turn off the engine,turn off the lights and take a minute to calm myself.set off but in all the confusion don't turn lights back on,black van man decides I need chinning,but after telling me off in agricultural language,decides an indecent gesture by his private parts will suffice.Now on roads I know into the village and back end skids on black ice,no damage but a lovely way to finish lol so is that it then...no...got to do it all again tonight to pick her up with ice and fog meant to form again.Its hobsons choice,shes been to Lincs for a funeral so must be done.
  14. Lovely crisp day,no work,off to see my gardening hero Monty Don in Salisbury today,all good stuff,as for Saints if there weren't 3 or 4 worse sides in the division,id really worry about them,my mate offered me a ticket for Weds and I turned it down,he said it was the worst match he had seen in 15 years lol
