Cold and Blustery.......

I know some of you are still curious about our weather...



Yesterday we had some of the 'white stuff'. I deliberately do NOT call it snow! It came down in a flurry and looked like snow. It was however just slush.... When it snows and settles, you can pick up some snow and make a snow ball yes? This was just icy water... you pick it up and have an iceball at best, ice turning to water and slush within seconds more likely. So I call it slush showers! Nothing much stayed but the dusting that did has frozen over this morning, so icy roads everywhere.

And an ICE COLD wind blowing from the northeast.. The few dogwalkers who braved the elements this morning were frozen to the bone, talking about balaclavas and hot chocolate waiting at home.......

You bring it alive with your description and photo! My son is working in London at the moment and all his comments are about the snow!

Those of us living close to the sea seem to be a little protected from the white stuff most of the country seem to be getting. Our dog is not happy about the temperature however!

WOW we have been watching on the news and hearing about the cold winter you are having. Whilst I am struggling to keep cool in this heat wave we are having! Meals are eaten out doors in the shade in a desperate attempt to find a breeze however slight.

I am getting cold just looking at the photo. I am not sure that I would have been so brave as to go out and walk the dog in such cold weather.

I'm cold just looking at your picture. Looks like a wonderful day to stay in and work on some Christmas projects.

Snow here on the west coast of Scotland but not as much as over on the east side. Perfect for staying in and stitching. Our cocker spaniel has a new warm coat and will go out any time.

I'm surprised you don't have more snow - your part of the weather map was all white earlier! We have had about 3 foot this week, it is a nightmare. My dad is STILL here!
