Yep, if you look on the bbc weather and stick in the postcode for birmingham then use the weather tracker at the bottom, it goes white about 3pm today until sunday night! I've been out this morning got 3 bags of rock salt, thankfully none will have to be used near the garden, we have a heavily sloping path to the car area, which if it refreezes at night is more like a bob sleigh track! So that's one less worry. I finally took the plunge and paid out the extortionate £14 for a snow shovel, works great though, so I'm all sorted. Then did a huge food shop, so yeah hatches are battened. Annoyed that my tulips and bulbs and the nice new shoots on the clemati are going to be set back a good while, ho hum, maybe because we are having a 'proper' winter, we can expect a 'proper' summer? Here's to hoping, I'm just ferretting out my beefstake tommie seeds hehe.
