    Fearing that this thread is going to run for each of the months of the year, I thought I would pre-empt replies by quoting the apt 'A Song of the Weather' by Flanders and Swan:



    January brings the snow,
    Makes your feet and fingers glow.

    February's ice and sleet,
    Freeze the toes right off your feet.

    Welcome, March, with wint'ry wind,
    Would thou wert not so unkind.

    April brings the sweet spring showers,
    On and on for hours and hours.

    Farmers fear unkindly May,
    Frost by night and hail by day.

    June just rains and never stops,
    Thirty days and spoils the crops.

    In July the sun is hot,

    Flanders: Is it shining?
    Swann: No it's not!

    Both: August, cold and dank and wet,
    Brings more rain than any yet.

    Bleak September's mist and mud,
    Is enough to chill the blood.

    Then October adds a gale,
    Wind and slush and rain and hail.

    Dark November brings the fog,
    Should not do it to a dog.

    Freezing wet December, then...

    Bloody January again!
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    So much for snow! It's 5C, dry and cloudy here - a long way from snow.... Perhaps that will change later?

    Your snow is not scheduled until 1700 hrs. Then you have heavy snow until midnight.

    We are currently having some sleet as an aperitif.

    Lol... We had 'four flakes' falling here at 4pm, along with some hailstones, so if that's it, I'll be well disappointed! 'Proper snow' has been forecast for later, so we'll see what transpires. If I don't wake up to the scene from 'The Snowman' tomorrow morning, the Met Office will be hearing from me!!

    Been a few flutters but nothing much new. Stuff last night hasnt gone anywhere and snow under the softer recent fall has turned icy ... cutting wind too so no one going out that dont have to. The estate roads and pavements are tretcherous...god knows where our local gritter is or our pavement machine. Usually been up by now. Maybe its too cold for them...bless

    We've got a proper blizzard on the go here now. The ground is very wet from all the rain earlier, so it's not settling.........Yet!
