Just had a gust of 54mph here, the strongest yet from Eleanor, who clearly hasn't quite finished yet.

Black wheelie bin retrieval count: neighbour 2, me 3, although they've just been emptied so I've brought mine in and laid it down to save Eleanor a job!  ;)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants, and plonk your potatoes in the soil.

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older.

Winds have eased down here, but very grey and wet  :(

We have had quite a lot of rain (10mm) between 6am and 8.30am and yes, the footpath has flooded yet again  ::)
So, it's grey, wet but mild at 10C, with a low of 6C overnight in the greenhouse.

I noticed yesterday that nobody's solar lights are working as they've been too long without sunlight, making the footpath very dark in the evening  :( Roll on Spring!

Wet start this morning, but calm. Suddenly got very windy this afternoon, which probably marks the beginning of the next cold spell which is forecast to last for at least several days. It was 9C this morning, now it's only 6C.  :(

Pouring with rain and has been doing so since first light. I fear for the poor souls in the Eden, Caldew and Petteril rivers catchment areas

Blue sky here, but the wind is chilly.  Hopefully it is doing some good and drying the plot out a bit ( ever the optimist me  :lol: )

Clear blue sky but a stiff NE  breeze making it feel -1.
Picked some sprouts and PSB at lunchtime and it was not pleasant.

The same here Brr! but it was nice to see the sun and get to the allotments for some fresh air, even if I didn't stay for long  :ohmy:

Beautiful hard blue sky and sunshine but 3 hours outside was more than enough even with my thermals on. Still, could be worse.. we could be in NE USA. I looked at their weather and thought it didn't seem that bad until I realised the temps were in Fahrenheit! -3F  = -19C although -40 is the same however you measure.

-3.9C here at 0800 this morning, making it the coldest night of the winter so far. The parsley which was looking very spritely when I picked some for tea yesterday has now got a severe case of the droop.

Sunny day, but at this time of year the sun doesn't get high enough to melt what is a very heavy frost on my car, so later I'll be belatedly joining the small army of scrapers I watched earlier this morning from the snug (and smug) warmth of my front room.  ::)

At least we had one sunny, although cold day yesterday  :)
Today brings grey skies, no wind, no rain and 4C (1C overnight) does this count as no weather?
