Not too bad here temperature wise - just grey and dreary.

Same here.
And I got out my thermal undies and Big Woolly Jumper in anticipation of a freeze.

I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes ..... It's flipping woolly-hat-in-the-house freezing.

(Same for you I guess Green Rosie?)

Maybe snow tomorrow but, for the moment, beautiful blue sky.

Freezing fog this morning. I hope santa brings me a pair of gloves. My last pair disintegrated.

Hey suomi,
that sounds brilliant! Whereabouts in Finland are you based?

These are the days I miss Finland! Going from nice white winters (excluding all the sleety dark days in my memories to the nearly never ending rain of NW England...

But maybe, maybe we'll get some snow soon too... at least it's going down to minus degrees overnight...

Yeah, and here at London Bridge - expect my train home will be cancelled soon

Metcheck weather forecasts for the next fortnight show it staying cold - might actually kill the weeds and bugs at the allotment this year.

Cheers,
Rob.

Yup - earlier in the week it was frozen everything - extremeties, water buckets, water butts, ground ..... woke up to 3cm of snow today but not as cold. The roads will be lethal is it freezes tonight

Just had a flurry of snow, but earlier in the day it was sunny and milder than yesterday and Tuesday.

We've had a fair bit of snow today but it's a bit warmer. Our bedroom is not heated and the other morning there was ice on the inside of the window - but we have a lovely wool duvet!
If it freezes tonight the roads will be lethal - and I'm driving to work at 5.30am! Wish me luck.
