We had our summer this time last year. It has rained heavily for more than 24 hours and another day of rain to come here in Cornwall. Feel so sorry for those who's properties are flooded once again. One house in Looe has been badly damaged by a landslide.
Keep warm and dry everyone.
Morning Pam, have heard some parts of cornwall are quite bad ? its terrible when properties get flooded especially if its happened more than once.

In Kent with meeeeeee
Looks like Kent is having some nice weather not here though
This time last year ............ there was even a barbecue being used ...
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.
Probably not mind they might just take a break for a while, I'm reasonably lucky as the few I have are 5+ years old, so the 3 I moved and cut down to 18" will have plenty in reserve to regrow, if it kills all the new shoots back, probably make them all branch from every bud so you'll have a plant with 500 stems, and look even better, just later. (Yes, I'm trying to look on the bright side!) I have 2 old man's beard (fascination) that I've had in unheated part of greenhouse in 4 " pots, they still have buds starting, but they'll be staying in the greenhouse for the time being.
No snow here - yet - but absolutely bitterly cold !!! Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!
One things for sure, somethings going wrong with our weather. It's not just our country who's feeling the effects either.
I hope it doesn't get any worse over the years, cos the energy companies will LOVE it. Esay mony for them.
Woke up to snow, stopped for a little while around 1ish, was snowing again at 3pm when I set out to get the boy from school.
Latest forecast says it will stop on Sunday and be back on Monday. Very fine flakes this time, made the pushchair heavy going. Really hope it clears up over the weekend, I suppose if it carries on, I've only got 4 more days of pushchair vs snow wrestling before we break up for Easter.
.........I am speechlesssssssss!!
