After the torrential rain yesterday, today we have snow and it's cold and I'm fed up.
Stockton bitter cold dull and flurries of snow, the sand bed stays switched off for another week
Still no snow......
About 6c out there & sunny now & again, but still v. windy.
Fixed a bit of windbreak material round the nearly out wall flowers. Too late I think, they're very droopy.
Here in Worcs stopped snowing about an hour agp,started snowing just before 11 last night.By the looks of the hills there is more to come - very grey and heavy and shrouded in cloud.
View from back door
Tried to go up the garden to feed the birds and failed, snow too deep.
Bitterly cold and gale force winds here. It's been trying to snow all day.
Not gardening weather, so I've been to the children's cinema with friend and 3 three children followed by lunch out. When I got back, could not believe someone was out on the allotment, at the back of the house, digging over his plot, he'd dug over quite a lot too, all the other plots had snow patches on them and then I heard the ice-cream van arrive at the front
First post here and it's to join in the moans about the weather (typical Brit eh?). Had about 4-5" snow where we are in the East Mids. This stuff isn't like the last dry, powdery blanketing. This snow is heavy and wet and has flattened bamboo to the floor, bent a healthy Ceanothus double and has possibly dealt a death blow to a Choysia. Spent about 30 mins shaking the stuff from as many shrubs, trees and plants as possible to avoid further damage. Ggrrrr!! Roll on some warmer weather please. Windowsills getting cramped with seedlings and the cats may have to be evicted from their warm spots on the remaining sills for 'additions'
Brass monkeys outside in that wind today. Back garden exposed to the East wind, so no escape.
Was below freezing first thing today, although actually warmer (less cold) than at bedtime last night. Think it reached about 1-2C, but it certainly didnt feel even like that!
All our snow has gone, but daughter's garden still covered, about 12miles further North. OH stayed over in NEast Derbyshire where it snowed non stop all day yesterday. J.
I still haven't had any snow or rain, but Like Jo the wind is baltic, just about froze my ears of while I was out with the dog, in fact it's that cold the dog had 2 coats on well she's nearly 16 so feels the cold more than me, the sun did manage to get out briefly but I think it was too cold for that as well so beat a hasty retreat behind the clouds oy=ut of the way
Another East Midlander here and am I glad it is now dark, can no longer see the snow from my little perch on my sofa, more due later in the week
Oh well fancy that its still colg and grey and very dreary. Whats happened to the size of the print?
Maud that was what I was going to ask, I have to put glasses on to read it.
Stockton "err" well no change so I will not bother.Sandbed still off, no point in sowing until it warms up and that east wind is frigid.
Sunshine, blue and white clouds, coldish wind...frosty snow patches...
what's going on...hope it lasts must finish clearing the shed to overwinter (!) pot plants.
Cold, overcast, not much weather at all really but too cold to do anything Sorry to hear of those still suffering under snow and/or power cuts. Mind you, if the latter, you're unlikely to be seeing this!
Stockton had snow laying when I got up this morning with more coming down, nearly went back to bed.it is going now and a bit brighter, just let the sun break through I ask.
Its a brighter grey here today but still very cold. When is the sun going toshine again?
Dry here in Norfolk, and overcast. All the snow has gone, but it's bitterly bitterly cold and a north-easterly wind blowing straight from Siberia
Snowing here, can't seem to get warm today
