The Weather Thread #9

Recommended Posts

All melting here now, and the lanes are open, so I am going off to collect the dogs in a bit.

It's around 1deg and forecast for warmer tomorrow.

Turned the heating off today - it was too warm!  We were out in the garden for a while, the girls are now living in the eglu in the greenhouse so we can dismantle the cube ready to move and the turf going down.  Except it's now a quagmire in the garden.  It rained this evening and the wind picked up and it's still raining.  I expect to see no snow left by morning.

DD went on the same walk we all did together on Sunday, only it took almost an hour per mile.  I asked why it took so long if it was in sub-zero temperatures.  She said it was only -1 and she had to jump in every snow drift she found.  :roll:  Later she said it was snowing again this evening!

A bit of a grey day really - we may have had a smidgeon of sun earlier though - it wasn't enough.  But quite mild and we've been in the boggy garden all day clearing up and dismantling the cube.  That was the dry part of the garden.  Still little bits of snow around but pretty much all clear now apart from behind the greenhouse.

Wednesday was bitterly cold here and the overnight temperatures were -9 on Monday and Tuesday. Since Thursday it has warmed up and been between 16 a 18 degrees.

This was lunch today outside

We had more sun this late afternoon but raining again this evening. Spent almost all day in the garden - more fresh air in one day than I've had in weeks!  LOL!

Well, it's still snowing here, grrrr! However, there was some rain overnight which softened the snow so I was able to make a wee route for the girls so that they didn't have to walk on the snow! Spoilt, I know! And look at the wellies that arrived today! I love them!

I missed Ursula's piccy!  Fab view.

We had another grey day but we also had a fair bit of sunshine.  Started raining this afternoon though.  Again no heating on!  OH is delighted!:roll:

I ordered the next size up so that I could get an extra pair of socks on. They fit me fine.

I will have a look and see :grin:

Not a bad day today, the sun shone enough to dry the rotavated soil so it could be raked.  Needs a little more dry weather to break down the clumps a little more, but  unfortunately I can hear rain lashing at the windows at the moment.  Ah well.  We'll have to wait a few more days for the turf to be laid!

Yep, roadkill days have arrived!  Rained very heavily in the early hours but since sun up, it's been dry and reasonably sunny.  Wind has picked up a lot!

Another lovely day here and it's reached a tropical 8oC! Unfortunately, the forecast for tomorrow is torrential rain.

More of a murky day here.  Just started spitting - lawn almost done so I hope the promised deluge stays away long enough for the guys to finish!

Another rain on and off day but it did get misty in parts while travelling home last night.  This morning said it was supposed to have the odd thunderstorms dotted throughout the day.  Bearing in mind my fear of them I hastily went on to the radar (helpful - not) and then satellite.  There's a huge swirly just off Cornwall!  The tail is flicking round Iceland so they can keep it, but it seems to be pushing other itty bits up from Spain/Portugal/France over the Bay of Biscuits.  There does seem to be an overload of swirlies lately!

So at the moment it's warm, has rained a bit, but dry at the moment.  I see blue sky to the west and yuk to the east.  We are under the yuk bit.  On the brighter side - we won't need to water the turf!:lol:
