Are schools and uni’s still open in tier 304 and will we be able to buy grit and snow shovels 

No need as we'll be underground by then.

Nice and fresh on the tops with snow becoming powdery & forming a glaze layer. -2C at present.

About 2 inches now.. Never expected this. 

Looks like someone was looking for an argument in here (and in other parts of the forum as it goes), those posts have been removed now, so please refresh the screen if you still see them.

At tier 304 you will only be allowed to buy grit or a snow shovel, not both, as there will be no mixing of both in any same household. If you choose a shovel it must be in the same bubble as your brush. LOL

A nice ending to the day, with the possibility of a good sunset shortly. I think I may just have got my daily dose of vitamin D today without using tablets.

If you could get it from rain there wouldn’t be lot of demand for supplement tablets around our region this weekend.

shame it can’t wash the damn Covid down the drains and out to see.

Weather warnings extended to Saturday and Sunday too now.

In the meantime, I think we have a problem...

Never understood why it’s there but there is a sculpture of the Alien stood above the front of my local pub.
it certainly looks weird when lit up at night.

My GP said we cannot make it naturally at this time of year this far north even on a clear sunny day. Something to do with the sun angle not being high enough now. She could be wrong though, she is human after all haha. Apparently we can from late March until about mid September.

It’s no wonder that our infection figures are so high then apart from the fact that countries further even north still have less cases.

at least that’s a crumb of comfort I’m hanging onto otherwise we’re doomed😭

Oh joy, four days of heavy rain with barely any respite, expecting flooding on a widespread scale, with leaves and debris clogging drains, ground is saturated now.. not promising prospects, next week's high pressure will be very welcome after what is about to come in Cumbria.

Dry at the moment, garden temp at 8°.  If you've got clear skies take a look at the moon and Mars, they are close together tonight, good photo opportunity to get them in the same frame.  Dug out a couple of spare waterproof coats in preparation for the predicted rain, it's only a 10 min walk to and from work, but long enough to get soaked.

If they confirm that vitamin D tablets can cure Covid, I can let you have some.... @ a tenner a time.

Now what's happening outside? Oh, it's started to rain. Now there's a surprise.

Yes, yellow weather warning has just begun and lasting until Sunday night (23.59). Just what this region doesn't need. I don't suppose there will be too many witches on the top of Pendle Hill on Saturday night, hang on, they can't meet there anyway in tier 3.

I think we may need to add 'wind' to the weather warnings over the weekend. I'm wondering whether the rainfall over the weekend will be similar to mid-November 2009 when there was record rainfall in the northern parts of the region and a v mild airflow.

I was wondering that the same, the models never seem to take in the south-westerly wind pounding the rain into the hills once it starts its forgets to stop
