What's the weather like in your area?

A bit dull & overcast here, after several days of bright sunshine, albeit cold, with the temp now about 1c.

Being January with clear night skies I have been expecting the temps to drop to minus double figures but have been having "only" down to about -5c.

Still no snow yet.

Our bin is going out & even with several inches of snow on it, it will be emptied, they have to really as snow is such a regular occurance here.

I really do have respect for the snowplough/gritter drivers; don't know how they do it as they drive on ungritted roads! Actually one did slip over a couple of years back, unfortunately it was on a narrow road with a steep hillside & it went over the edge. Luckily the driver was fine but recovering such a large, heavy vehicle up the slope was another matter! Makes me shudder just to think about it.

Ah well, on with the marmalade!

Has anyone got any snow yet?

Still none here.  Yet.  It will come.

Hope it's not as bad as they say it's going to be for you all.

A friend slipped over on ice yesterday & broke a finger; miles from anywhere, on her own & no mobile reception, she was so lucky that it wasn't worse.  So please take care folks!

+2c when I got in at 10 o'clock.

According to this evening's forecast we should be just too far north for tomorrow's snow.  However Friday (when we're due to be out for the evening) looks like a different story ................

None yet, though a tiny bit of sleet first thing.

It's rather grey though........    And cold.

That looks really great, just the sort of thing that I was looking for last year, but I was told that the pump needed to be removed during the winter - it can get a bit chilly at times!

I put down twiggy bits onto flowerbeds.  They go all over the grass .
