So, guys, as the beast is dying I was wondering what all your weather preferences are? For me, I love any extremes. Snow and cold in the Winter to heatwaves and severe thunderstorms in the Summer. Spring and Autumn are a bit ‘meh’ for me.

Snow, obviously:cold-emoji:, then thunderstorms...I'll take thundersnow if I have to!:D

Been an amazing week. First the powder snow great for sledging Tues to Thur and now the wetter snow last night great for snowman building and the kids did a great job this morning.

Love snow but I get bored easy ... Spring for all the blossom trees ( look like snow when it falls ) summer ( very hot )  to toast my baps ! autumn all the wonderful colours of the trees 

i love toasted baps, i find summer quite dull if it is non stop sun, the odd thunderstorm to break the boredom, the last summer before the mini ice sets in approaches:good:

Snowing again in Dunstable. Very little thawing today. Temperature has not got above 2c today and I spent over an hour digging us and my elderly neighbour out this morning.  I appreciate we are 600ft up in the Chiltern Hills but pretty exceptional given that we are now in meteorological spring ! Given that they have been talking about greyhound racing on the MOD thread I am going to say what a cracking result for Fulham at Derby today !

I love heat and I’m a bit of a sun junky when it comes to sunbathing. I’m going back to Vietnam in June. When I was there in June last year, the heat and humidity was quite extreme. On one day when I was there, the local airport (Danang) was reporting a temperature of 38c and a dewpoint of 28c. That was the most oppressive heat I’ve ever encountered in south east Asia.

We live on the Whipsnade Hill. I can walk from home to where it used to take place in about 5 minutes. They brought it back a few years ago but I havn't seen it the last 2/3 years. A great place to walk in any weather but particularly good on a summers evening just before the sun sets. If you visit the National Trust Visitor centre on top of the Downs they have pictures of it taking place.

Does it still have that funny zoo, where the animals spend their days doing uncannily accurate impressions of Johnny Morris?:D

I lived in poynters road so had blows downs near but Dunstable downs were the best ! And of course got to see the gliders too ! I go back a fair few times a year so next  time  will go and take a look at the visitor center ! Thank you

I do love a decent Summer with storms. I remember us chatting about the heat down here last Summer as those in the north moaned about their crap weather 😂😂

Hehe, yeah there’s plenty of moaners all year round up there! Really hope this summer is warm and sunny, not cool and cloudy. That’s just the pits.

Someone mentioned a storm coming up from France did they mean the rain falling now, or is there something behind it.
