-5.7 C at waking up -  -6.2 C at the moment, still getting colder!!!

and I bet there are others who live where it is much colder than here.  Seems a long time ago that we had winters when we had to scrape the car just two or three times!

Did anybody see Channel 4's programme on weather and climate yesterday?

Well worth watching.

S**T its cold!...that was my not so lady like reaction when I went outdoors this morning to let girls out. I soon turned around to change my clothes to something MUCH MORE warmer than pyjamas and dressing gown.
Everything is white over and beautiful. I can't ever remember feeling the cold as bad in Finland as I do in here and its not even close to those temperature they get over there :dontknow:
This same weather from Siberia caused record of this year already over there...in Lapland there was -32,4 last night...now that is bit nippy!

Yes, I saw some of the program....and the slugs  :angry4:

Jack Frost has been very busy.  The Hoar frost this morning very pretty on the trees.  But still there at lunch time means it is still freezing.  Looks like warmer wetter weather is on the way friday.  Driving yesterday evening was awful, freezing fog.

Yes, I saw some of the program....and the slugs  :angry4:

............... in East Northamptonshire a couple of hundred yards from the Bedfordshire border on a ridge.


Yep, the researcher was wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too fond of them.  Mind you - I have never seen a yellow one like he had sliming up his hand - YUK!

Just as cold this morning and  hasn't got above freezing yet either.  From tomorrow apparently it's warm and rainy.  Here comes the next flood!  The fields around here are still partly waterlogged and now iced over, the bottom of the garden is barely drier than the surrounding fields, but at least the standing water went away just before the big freeze.

Still have not been able to plant garlic and shallots.  They are in seed trays in the greenhouse.  S'pose it will have to do .....................  until we get slightly drier conditions.

Walked to tennis this morning at 9.30 am to play outdoors in a set four, with one lady over 80, and two other elderly gentleman (these retired people are mad) and she does like to play every day, if possible.  In a really bad mood as could have stayed in bed and read my book, with tea and cat, then it started raining at 10 am when we were due to start playing, so had a cup of coffee at Club and got a lift home. Got wet walking to lovely Morrisons, and now going to have my lamb stew, and finish my jigsaw.  2morrow is meant to be sunny, so may be able to go to the lovely allotment and walk in the puddles. Roll on summer, cheap seeds at the ready.
