Brrrrrrrr, its cold this morning, bbrrrrr -1 in the Mids, glad me heating comes on early
Wet anf fairly mild. Well, what's new - it is the coastal plain of south Wales. Rain, rain and more rain.
Good morning Brumbull a little warmer here technically but blowing a gale. Global warming is quite real but its creating worse weather for us. We get our climate from the gulf stream and the north atlantic oscillation. These seem to be changing the warmth coming up from the tropics doesn't seem to be as reliable as it was cold air is coming much further south than it used to. We might have to get used to extremes like in Poland in winter you can be in -18 or lower. I got a frozen mustache going round an outdoor market in a Polish winter but in the summer it can be 30 degrees +.
I don't know how much of the changes in climate are down to mankind although the ozone layer has been damaged by CFC's gases now banned in aerosols and modern fridges. Oxygen is normally O2 but Ozone is a less stable O3 cfc's broke down the ozone molecules and removed part of the radiation shielding that naturally exists in the upper atmosphere. Worst of all they seem to have been a catalyst not getting used up as they did their damage. I think we will have to adapt to the changes in the weather patterns and hope they don't get too much worse.
Grey skies clearing...doesn't mean a lot...back in form early start..cold but kept going...now for a cuppa and must tackle the shed..do I really need all those pots?
Wait! sun breaking through...no time to sit about...another window of light... on we go.
Looks like Sheffield's going to get in in the neck weather wise. No car tomorrow then! Another weekend trying to do indoor things, so I can concentrate on outdoor things when better weather gets here!
When is the wintry weather going to end, it is milder here is West Wales but... soo wet. Was hoping to get my early peas planted outside but will have to wait a few more days. So will have to watch a few more gardening programmes on TV, may bake a cake!!
