A covering of snow in Stockton cold with low cloud in parts, I have a good all round view so can see some clear patches.Shopping to do snow or not so it is warm pully time.
Very cold - Brrrrrr! and dry. Now it's clouding over and the hills seem to be misting - maybe worse to come
Below freezing first thing here.
Now a cold brisk wind & sleet.
Have fed the birds & now will keep warm & busy inside. J.
Lordy it was cold today! But have just walked back from a party with a neighbour, full of wine having danced for hours and somehow it didn't seem that cold anymore.
It's snowing in the Fens
I live in the fens but we have no snow as yet!! Flipping cold, windy and wet though. Just hope my bees survive the winter.
We had very heavy rain hammering on the windows over night, now it is lighter but still rain.
Driving through floods yesterday , the fields are just not draining of water, the floods had ice on them. Warmer today though, but windy.
Well Dutch-Ellen I live across the North Sea from you Stockton on Tees and it enough to freeze the toes off a brass monkey.We had a lovely sunny morning, the snow and ice vanished overnight although a band of cloud has swept in over the coast and looks threatening, it is the wind chill that causes the bother and at the moment I would say it is 1 to -1 brrrr.
It started out sunny, but has clouded over now. 4-5C out there now. Cold wind, more NNE in our back- just been down to add kitchen veg waste to the compost bin. Wind has increased since I did bird feeders this morning.
Noticed that all the fuschias, both in tubs & ground, have all 'been got' by the recent frosts. Lots of cuttings on various sills ready for next yrs pots.
After last nights' rain was surprised not to see ice everywhere. OH only felt his car slide just as he turned into the top of our road. J.
lindylou333, the snow only lasted a few minutes I think, but they were HUGE snow flakes coming across the garden almost horizontally.
The rest of the day it has been getting warmer.
Hi everyone, came back from Leeds on Wednesday to an inch of snow, great for me as I have some "Snowtrax" that came from a friend in Canada they are great for snow but not much good on frost/ice, glad to say (or maybe not) the snow has all gone but it's been lashing down through the night so the borders this morning were flooded and it has been raining through the day, temps are not to bad a warm 3.8c at the moment but they are supposed to plummet next week with heavy snow just as long as my Daughter and SIL make it for Christmas I'm not bothered.
Dull today, barely no wind.
Was just below feezing, in the back garden at first light today. Now a very balmy (!) 6-7C out there.
Fed the birds & squirrels! Discovered that my autumn sown sweetpea seedlings have been eaten whilst in the coldframe! J.
Spectacular sunset with streaks of orange and apricot (as was dawn this a.m.) in the Fens, might be able to go and tidy my studio without getting hypothermia as it is not that cold.
Last Christmas day was very mild. We had had a wood burner and were unsure how to lay it etc. Son came on a visit and demonstrated - it was so mild we were sitting there in T-shirts and windows open to cool down while it burnt
It's raining again now. J.
