    Had to smile today. Out at St Ishmaels and "walking" down the path were Mr and Mrs Blackbird.  Even as a bird watcher I have never seen two birds SO puffed up in all my life. Like little fluffy balloons blown up against the wind, Lol.

     

    Bless them trying to stay warm in the cold wind... Within less than a minute this morning 6 of them 'marched' out of the undergrowth and proceeded to feast ! If they spent as much time eating as they do protecting 'their' food ! I love watching them and all the birds from the lounge window.

    NO snow here on the Pembroke Coast, we did have a heavy hail shower just after 6pm this evening in less than an hour it was all gone. 

    Temps today including the dew point have gone up and down like a yoyo... The promised wintery showers flowing across from Ireland has seen the Irish Sea devour most ! 

    I do have to say the Met Office in regard to what they forecast were accurate for us and the Meteo radar has also been accurate in what we 'might' have received... 

    Love living on this little island that is SO HARD sometimes to predict accurate weather for :D

    Lets see what the next few days might bring?! 

    Nothing like this pic from the 1982 Blizzard when we lived in Manorbier I'm sure... lol... :D

    Wasn't even a North Westerly was it? More of a Westerly which gave us mostly rain and sleet. Yeah a little bit of snow last night but whoopdy do. Big deal.

    I had a hunch this spell was going to fail to live up to all the hype. I fear we had the best of what winter has to offer in December.

    not quite as bad as forecasted, and I know it wasn't us in the end - but places in Scotland and Ireland have had a right pasting - so this westerly/north westerly has delivered, but not quite to Wales, Ireland seemed to suck all the life out of the showers before they hit, well - you win some, you lose some, this time - winter is far from over yet though, end of Feb and then we still get ops right through to Easter, so no chucking the towel in yet - hurricane winds tonight with some more snow for north wales, more wintry showers after that

    In 2016, adventurer and photographer, Amos Chapple, spent five winter weeks working in the Yakutia region and described its living environment as “exhausting”.Oymyakon is served by just the one shop and its solitary school only shuts if temperatures dip below -52C.

    Look I like cold as much as the next person, but not that much.

    agreed - a little snow and snowy scenery/fine - can deal with it and it's enjoyable - loads and -50c temps ridiculous/dangerous and downright hardwork just to exist in climates like that lol
