Bill, looking at the sky in your pictures I think you will be getting more snow later today.
Stay well & warm.
I've been trying to wean the birds in the garden off my regular feeding ready for when we move house by only feeding them nuts and fat balls and letting them run out before they get replaced. I swear more thought has gone into what and how to feed them how to pack away any of my precious belongings!
First freezing rain in Ontario this morning except in Toronto,its to big and generates to much heat which stops the rain from freezing.School buses are canceled all over the province.
cold here in Southampton and has been a sunny day but wet now
Too cold? It's been about 4 deg here in Kent, so reasonably mild compared to recent years in this area. We've had loads of rain, though, and the roads have been flooded from the fields. I've heard that we're in for a cold spell, so need to be careful with our seeds.
Not cold. Last week we had temps up to 14C. Usually in January we are down to -10C or -15C which is almost a 30 degree difference.
Today has been cooler at about 4 to 6C and we may get a frost tonight but not for long and not more than -1C. It's about time winter came and got on with it. I don't want to be frozen in April.
For the last few years we've had snow in February, lets hope we don't get any this year
First frosts this week since early November last year. Has winter appeared?
My mother keeps reminding me that the big freeze in 1947 didn't start until late January but fortunately I don't see anything like that in the current weather forecast!
That was the year I was born and my Mother tells me we were effectively housebound for months? Explains why I am such a shy retiring sort.
Not really cold for this time of year, but pouring down again and quite misty.
I think I remember saying you cant predict the weather months in advance on page 2 :P
Quite windy but at least it was dry today here in coastal SW Wales. However the forecast is for exceptional amounts of rain, accompanied by strong winds tomorrow and Monday. Roll on Spring! (at least then there'll be a chance of longer daylight length and slightly higher temperatures).
Pouring with rain right now here in South East Wales. I want to go out and finish the jet washing
Although it's wet and horrid this year I think it's been a mild winter which doesn't bode well for us gardners next year the slug and snail population will thrive.....
No need for jet washing now Matt!!
Very windy and pouring down. My poor garden.
Do you think we're going to get a freezing March like last year? My garden is so wet now, really worried about rotting roots and if we get prolonged minus temperatures that can only make the situation worse.
Not really much point in getting out into the garden for a bit at least. Experience shows that we will catch up at some point. Remember last March was very, very, cold and we are not even into Feb. yet. I am relaxed.
Lovely sunny day here, a slight breeze but quite a mild day really for the end of January. Hope this lasts so the garden dries out a little, then I can get out there and do a few jobs. Have even put the olive tree out for an airing in the sunshine.
I remember at least two very bad winters. 1947 when I was a kid. Then 1962/3 That ime I was a traffic cop in London. Snow was still lying about in central London in late April.
The continual rain and low light levels, I fear is getting everyone done at the moment. Plus those very strong winds. Sadly, I saw today. Some very ancient evergreen oaks have been bown down. One locally has part demolished a red brick wall dating back to cardinal Wolsely's time, close to Eltham Palace.
