What's the weather like in your area?

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.

Nice and sunny today but cold and crisp,  went to Newcastle today for at trip out ,,nice and sunny there as well so nice all round,  it's a freezing - 2.2c now,  I need to take the dog out so will no doubt be rather apprehensive on the icy patches  at least it's not rained for 24 hours

There are some ominous looking clouds rolling in and the wind is getting bad,  at least the rain has held off a few spots here and there but that's it,  supposed to have more rain tomorrow I  can do with out the as I'm going to my old works for a visit via B+Q as it's just round the corner no doubt will come out with something

The clouds parted and I saw some blue sky,  its gone now and the rain has started again not heavy though thank goodness and there's still some patches of blue sky about,  it's a tropical 6c at the moment it was only 3.2c when I was out with the dog this morning,  I was going to go to Newcastle today but after all the rain these past days I'll leave it till the roads have cleared,  the wind is picking up as well hope it keeps the rest of the rain away,  my poor little Tete a Tete daffs that have sprouted will need water wings.

Signs of Spring!!!

At long last it's stopped raining so managed to inspect the borders this morning that have been underwater for the last 2 days and was surprised to see that some Tete a Tete daffs have sprouted I hope they don't rot off as they are still in the water and I hope that it drains away before these frost's come if indeed they do,  oh no here comes the rain again

Well the BBC have'nt mentioned anything like temperatures that low they predict normal November ones so where on earth have The Dailey Mail got that from,  I know there's a cold front coming down from the North but certainley not that cold.

Where are all the birds ?

It could be the rain as birds have to work a lot harder to keep the feathers dry,  I know that my birds only come when the rain eases off like just now,  it's been torrential most of  the day so the respite in it has brought them out by the flock,  no doubt as soon as the downpour starts again they will vanish,  if they get truly hungry they will have to put up with the rain and try for the food and hunger will over ride the need to feed,  just wish I could put brollies all over the garden for them

I have built 2 Arks could maybe do with another,  back garden under water well the grass is,  the front garden under the window is the same and still it rains with no respite in sight,   there's a beck near me that's normally dry but the Council where there this morning with a JCB,  have took the fencing down around it and closed the footpath so they're obviously digging it out just in case,  it's quite deep about 8 feet below ground level but with all the rain it must have started running again with a vengeance,  fortunately the house's nearby are in no immediate danger of being flooded.

Lovely picture of the Starling Steve but can you hang the fats ball out some other way as those nets are very dangerous for the birds as they get their claws stuck in the netting and if not spotted will die from stress trying to get away.
