The weather.
« on: Jan 19, 2019, 12:03:47 AM »
Anybody had snow yet?   Very cold here, rain but no snow, (famous last words maybe)
I saw an ad for burial plots.  I thought to myself, "this is the last thing I need".

No, just icy cold. Lovely sunshine yesterday despite the cold. Expect Raven's seen some..

We had quite a lot of snow yesterday here on The Wirral (not too far from zoony) and at one point thought it might stick but fortunately the temperature stayed just high enough to stop it.

It just turned to rain in the evening.  I hate this weather and am on a countdown to a holiday in Cuba and when we get back, spring will be round the corner.
Everything I can't find is in a totally secure place.

Yes, we have had quite a bit. Snow ploughs are out in force.  :'(  I hate the snow.

We had an inch and a half on the 15th of December which froze hard overnight making our yard a skating rink 0 very, very dangerous. To cover the ten feet from the back door to the car I had to use Veronica's Zimmer frame plus studded boots, and it then took 30 minutes to get the car ice free. Thawed over the next 48 hours and apart from a flurry which only lasted about 15 minutes three days ago, nothing since, although I have seen some vehicles on the road with quite a bit of snow on them over the last couple of days.

This is a poor area. We can't afford any snow. I think the council are saving up for a bit of sleet for us later.

I live in Yorkshire.  We're much poorer here. 😆  No snow, just really cold today.

I'm in South Yorkshire too Crabby. Not even slush today, just grey damp. I might go to the supermarket later, I need the excitement.  ::)

I'm just back from the Supermarket, and you should see all the filled to overflowing trollys, it's worse than the Christmas Holidays.  :o  At this rate food will be getting rationed before March 29th. The wee lass on the till looked knackered and it was only 10am.  ::)
