  1. A landmark birthday today was to finish with a trip to poole stadium to win a fortune at dog racing with friends.Looking at reports from near the coast,seems it might be safe to travel down,just wondering if anyone knows if the situation is likely to worsen,or if the worst of the weather is now,first race just after 6 pm.
  2. I ,plus two changes into dry clothes can confirm,that my gardening work has been done in weather that without swearing can be politely described as diabolical.To add insult to injury,my long awaited return to river fishing is now on hold as the Dorset Stour has gone missing and the Hampshire Avon is coming to me rather than the other way round,dont you just love the UK weather lol
  3. According to local reports,Southampton were more than a bit unlucky tonight.
  4. Hampshire Air Ambulance now searching for Fordingbridge,it appears to have sunk lol
  5. A split day between gardening and swimming lol,kept going but thank goodness for efficient waterproofs,had numerous bouts of heavy rain,but on the basis my gardens really needed it,i was one of the few folk actually smiling as the heavens opened today
  6. Well my B and Q £2.99 Nonfail Thermometer shows a shade temperature here of 80 degrees,is this the bargain of all time or is it inaccurate
  7. I am truly sorry everyone,my Indonesian rain dance,which was used to germinate grass seed and bed in some newly turfed lawns,didnt come with another dance to stop it lol
  8. Enjoyable plant sale at Woodgreen,really well run and lots of people,i had the only pitch in the shade,didnt bother me too much but two Polar Bears were treated for hypothermia.
  9. In all fairness still a lying snow day up here,4 miles down to the town it diminishes,cant get a true ASL for here too much fences to jump to get it,but about 135 ft,interested to see Redlynch at nearly 3 times the height,guess Downton and Godshill,the other local weather centres probably higher also,be interested to find that out.Anyway,allow the snow melt to wash through the river,mild conditions,colour in the water,ideal float fishing conditions for roach lol.
  10. Many take heed of the thoughts of the Long Ranger on here,his sidekick Tonto rarely gets a hearing until now....his 30 dayer as follows...me want heap big Beast From East Kemosabe....never know lol
  11. I am surprised at the amount of snow we have here in the Alps lol,will still be a fair bit tomorrow before it goes.Really good imports from the various New Forest Weather Centres,lifted spirits when they were reporting snow as I vainly shone the torch out the back door only to see nothing,lets hope we can have another episode before Winters end,with all of our area having something else to remember this year.
  12. A funny old dayif all the snow had stuck,im guessing 35 foot lol,but most unusual nonetheless.thanks to the New Forest weather centres for their updates,still snowing but not settling,another job lot of bird food,fat balls sure attract Great Tits,loads of birds,but nothing unusual,but up to 30 dive bombing the feeding station,the tits must knacker themselves,fly in,take a single grain,then fly back again
  13. Im a bit confused,my only local info is coming from Downton,Redlynch and Godshill,can any of these weather centres give a clue as to whats happening,is this nearly over now or subject to change.
  14. Costs a few quid I know,but its really pleasing to see the birds swamping the feeding station,the Robins were being almost hand fed,as well as having territorial punch ups,but worth every penny,not seen any heavy snow,but the garden suggests otherwise,places west of here getting a really memorable snowfall.
