Still getting drifting snowflakes here right this minute and a dusting of snow, but nothing more than that. It's the wind that's the real villain. Uterly bitter slicing strong howling wind in the minuses that freezes bollox on stone lions. Not fun at all.

If you want fun trying walking to Three Shires Head near the Cat and Fiddle (if you can even get a car anywhere close to exit and start the walk in, in the first place).
Last time I experienced weather like this was on a mountain in Alaska.

Bit wild out there today :shock:

70mph winds in the village and that's not the top of the glen either. I've got pavement signs down the road and my bins have ended up in the farmers field :lol:

Not really. Just had to go out to the van and there is a river running past the door. It was dark so didn't see it until I stepped in it :evil:

Cats are tucked up at home in the warm. A bit peeved at the cold though!

I did forget what it was like to be wet, drenched, cold wet :|

Bin day was yesteday in our area; they're all safely back in slot. It's the fences I'm worried about and hoping the wind doesn't get worse, and it's pxssing down again. Back garden is like a big sponge right now.

I had to take my shorts off and put trousers on this morning. I mean, what kind of idiot would try scraping frost off the windscreen in shorts!

It's Kent by the way. Sounds about right though.

As for you, Monty, you could choose to live in a more temperate climate. It's not like there's some law against leaving the liberal democracy that is Canada. I hear tell it's nice and warm in Saudi just now.

Indeed! I was in China in October but fortunately left before all this business. Not that grabbing me would have put much pressure on our government. You can keep him they'd say - his useful working days are over and he's just a drain on the system. I don't mind the winter - lots of skiing of both types, skating and warm fires. Plus it is an excuse to go to the Caribbean for a week each year. Yeah, man!

It's snowing. Just drifting flakes right now and it'll probably just pass over, but the weather forecast was uncannily accurate, to the hour in fact.

I hate to tell you this Tango, but when you access a modern app on your phone, it accesses all your history, shopping, and geolocation data and decides what is the best weather to get you to buy, for example, a new woolly hat. It then gives you a few targeted ads, and sends out a drone to drop snow overhead at the precise moment it 'predicted'.
Snow is a modern con inflicted on us by Big Business.
