Another gloriously sunny day, the wind has dropped completely. Frost on the grass this morning and probably again tomorrow morning. I am not knocking this lovely, settled weather, but we do need some rain too - it is winter after all.
I hope our summer weather is as settled as this though.
At last! The sun has been shining all day and I even opened up the greenhouse for a couple of hours. It was very misty this morning early on as I accompanied OH to the docs to have his stitches out. The mist soon dispelled though to give us this beautiful day here in Cheshire.
Glorious sunshine. The first glimpse of the sun here in a week. I spent about two hours pottering about with little bits of tidying up. It was cold though. Thermal walking trousers under my gardening ones.
If it is any consolation a friend living in south west France has temperatures of minus 11C.
Ice this morning and the car has just ding'd for ice warning on way home. Supposed to be a sunny but freezing day tomorrow so I'll put the windscreen cover on now as it may not thaw by 12:00 when I leave for work.
Lack of sunshine today - we have been spoiled for the past few days. Feeling cold without the sun, but luckily no wind and still no rain either. There was a frost last night, ice on our small pond and the bird bath this morning.
It only reached about 0C today but the sun was bright. Biked the river path, had to wear ear muffs, long underwear, gloves and three layers under my jacket. River's running fast closer to downtown and isn't frozen over yet.
That's the Bow River. It will flood a little every few years but we got hit with the flood of the century in 2013. The whole downtown was evacuated and sealed off. I had to explore with my camera and did some police barricade dodging. Shame on me, but I knew I'd never see the likes of it again.
If you google Calgary flood 2013 video, you can get a birds eye view of the flood of 2013.
