i don't mind bees but wasps should not have been invented

I bet there'll be a bumper crop of the buggers, this year? And another of God's creations  (moths) have been nibbling my cotton shirts. Bar stewards!😦

Weird with some folk recording temps of 15 degrees today, only managed 7 according to my weather station. However it’s been a beaut of a day, blue sky all the way. It’s nice with the evenings becoming lighter, feel like I want to slip into spring summer mode now, although I’d happily adjust back for a blizzard for a couple of days...

An almost Spring like day here in the Hastings area with just shy of 8 hours sunshine. Not as warm as some parts of the country, with temperatures locally 11.7c but felt pleasant enough.

An absolutely stunning day from the moment I got up to the sight of slight fog across the frosty rooftops, and sun and blue skies aloft. Took the dog out and he was panting in the sunshine while we didn't even need a jacket. Even my son, who is a die-hard coldie and snow lover had to admit it was rather nice! Sorry to hear you haven't been well @Katrine Basso, those are tough conditions to live with and getting rest yet trying to keep going simultaneously is so difficult (I am a CFS sufferer myself, and flare-up days really knock me for six). Good luck with your recovery.

I'm doing a three-day stint taking care of my YouTuber son at VidCon at the Exel from Friday to Sunday; I am already pondering clothing choices that match a frosty start and cool evening for the journey there and back yet not too hot if we reach 15 degrees and we're there all day. That's if Southwestern can run a train service over the weekend of course....

Thank you Reefseeker for you kind understanding and kind wishes.  Yes it has been a glorious sunny day in South Ockendon and tomorrow looks like it is going to be the same.  I hope that your CFS flare-ups are becoming less frequent. I have never been to VidCon (as I would find the journey going there stressful and I do not like crowds.  I hope that the three-day VidCon event will go well and that the Southwestern train service will be running its regular service without any hiccups. The only time I have been to a convention was a Star Wars one and that was was either in early 2000.  I have also been to Star Trek TNG exhibition in the mid 90's.

Very dry soil on the allotment this afternoon especially as we should have had the wettest period of the year. Could be problems ahead. Bonkers warm there today though for mid February. 14.2c

I have a weather station there and interestingly the lowest temperature recorded all winter was - 4.2c. Even for South London thats pretty poor. 

The word boring springs to mind. 💤

Conventions look like a lot of fun. No idea what to expect with this one, it will be a new experience. As you say, travelling is such hard work, I also don't like having to talk to people a lot, find it really draining. After a big event like this, or even if I am teaching late afternoon/early evening it can take me a day or two to recover, it's why I am part-time at work.

A very cool feeling evening again after a beautiful day, I wonder if there will be another frost. Have a lovely evening everyone:)

Stunning day here today. 

A chance for the bogged fields to dry out and ease up on those muddy dog walks. 

Still a saturated ground around here from the soaking over the last few weeks, so will take another week or so providing it doesn’t rain.

This is an old chestnut and people take their own slant but in meteorology winter ends when February does.

But that's only to make the meteorological statistics simpler to analyse ie splitting the seasons into equal quarters based upon the months of the year, solely based upon the Gregorian calendar. However, geographically and astronomically, due to the earth's tilt and distance from the sun during the year the dates of the astronomical seasons are based upon physics/ observations that underpinned the calculations of the Julian calendar. 

It's not really an "old chestnut" it's based upon scientific fact... The metrological seasons have only been established for convenience of establishing seasonal/ monthly statistics within a specified time frame in the christmas pudding for the benefit of commerce and various weather reliant industries, whereas the physics of the astronomical seasons cannot be changed and are fixed by our tilt, speed of orbit around the sun and speed of rotation. 

And yes, everyone might have a "take" on it, but as a geographer, scientist and historian, you can't escape physics. Therefore, I'll stand by my original point that winter doesn't end until around or on 21st March.

The unusual thing about this setup is mild days and very clear days. Normalliy I associate 12-14c at this time with higher mins and lots of cloud cover.

This time we are getting subzero nights and wonderful sunny days. Really has been Spring like today, no complaints at all here.

Despite how meh the winter has been, we have managed more Frost's than you'd expect.
