Corny, we have wandered off on a light hearted tangent I'm afraid after otnorot but just call me Bill mentioned the (serious) plight of the Polar Bears.
Normal service will resume eventually!
Snow? Where? Don't let it snow I've not got the huskys trained and ready to get me to work yet!
Dampish but fairly mild.
Look, just another 5 weeks and the shortest day will be past.....how's that for optimism?
They'll soon be here
Do you ever get freezing rain/ice storms in the old country?This is a tree two doors from my house,ice covered.
Bill, I think this would be classed as a freak event, particularly in the South , where I live. My Northern neighbours may comment differently, but I leave that to them.
If it did happen here I hate to think what destruction it might cause. I live in the New Forest, and if we lost our ancient trees it would be unthinkable.
Shhhh. Nobody noticed my deliberate mistake....it will be 5 weeks to go .......soon
Verd. Whatever, it can't come soon enough for me.
Verdum you want optimism,its almost spring.
Lovely thought Bill, I sooooo wish.
How's your son? Are you able to have a get together on 20th? ..think it's the 20th. I hope you can.
Here in coastal West Wales our winters have a habit of being mild, windy and wet ('liquid sunshine' in copious quantities). But we do have to watch out if the wind comes from any part of 'the Far East' [ie the other side of Offa's Dyke].
*Being in town with relatively sheltered urban terraced housing all around certainly helps - that and sitting just 20 feet (vertical) and just 600 yards (horizontal) from tidal waters of Milford Haven seaway seals the deal!!
