I'm losing the will to live.  Once again, for those at the back. The main snow risk isn't until 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. The colde

So the cold is almost at an end with a steady thaw expected over the coming days. As such the region will be one again. May I just say that the last week has been a real experience and I must tha

    Just got in from supermarket, it was empty, nobody around, plenty of bread, milk, vegetables, etc etc, so nobody knows to panic buy yet.

    I'd just like to thank the couple who would not get out of the way and dawdled from the checkouts to their car and wouldn't let me past and stopped to chat with others blocking the path, i got the bus stop just as my bus pulled out and had to wait half an hour for another one, ok it was warm rain, but it was irritating.

    I'm looking forward to the mini snowy spell.. it's at the weekend which means I can stay in, relax and watch it fall..

    Sunday is looking good.. GFS shows the band merging with the showers across south London :)

    Yes and if it came anywhere close to verifying most of us would get snowed in similar to 09, but closer to a 91 I'd say, somewhere in the middle maybe. Melt would set in pretty quickly once the sun came out but shifting that much snow could be hard work even in mid March.:help::D

    Nice morning here with plenty of hazy sunshine and a mild 12C, but that SE’ly wind is pretty gusty. Looks like our region is best (or worst, depending on preferences) placed to see some snow this weekend. Unless that high sinks too far south, still time for that to happen. 

    My pepper and chilli plants are doing well under my new toy (Grow Light Garden by Garland) ???

    Looking good.  I notice you have wallpapered your greenhouse and have an easy chair in there.  Couldn't spot the beer keg.

    Couple of questions. 

    Did you get a good deal as the cost of your buffet food heater makes the chillies expensive initially? 

    What is the hottest chilli you grow (Scoville scale)?

    I think, i will do as Matt suggested, see how it is overnight Friday and into Saturday morning, I dont really want to cancel it because its so difficult to get one, might be a wait for the next one, as it is this one is a cancellation, to wait without a cancellation would have been much longer. Also the chemist just suggested I ask the consultant to change my meds because they cant get hold of the one i was prescribed so i do need to see someone, of course if its bad i expect the hospital will cancel anyway.At least you could get another appointment quiite soon, so that's good, you cant leave it with an infection, very painful you poor thing.

    It does seem really strange to think it will get so much colder in the next day, although its very gloomy and rainy out there, its surprisingly warm, i had my coat on but didnt really need it.
