Well, it was forecast to be cold or even below freezing, so how is your local weather where you are ?

Had some frosty mornings this week and the road into town over the hill was white on Friday, and as our Scandinavian cousins would say...................bery slippy 8)

We're in Lincolnshire at the moment.... :shock:

The smoke from the not so distant power station mingled with the fast moving dark clouds as I stared at the sky, and small clusters of birds sat with fluffy plumage on the nearby overhead telephone wires, huddling together to keep warm......

We'd trailed the shops all morning,my good lady and I, and my weary aching legs could take no more, so I sat on a bench with two other old brass monkeys whilst our wives trawled even more shops for bargains...
One of the other brass monkeys turned to me and said, '' I wish I was in Spain now soaking up the warm sun whilst sipping my cold beer'', the other brass monkey joined in ..adding ''me too''...
I hadn't the heart to tell them that at the moment it's also ff....ff...ff...fr... very cold also in Spain ...
So I just nodded in agreement....
I was about to tell them that in a short while we will be back home in Spain.....but hadn't the heart...

We sat for more than half an hour..almost now suffering from hypothermia....
I could imagine tomorrows headlines in the local paper...''Three Old Men Found Frozen To Death On A Bench In The Shopping Centre''....
Yes.. now I was feeling sorry for myself.... :cry:
I watched the shop door which my wife had disappeared into, like a loyal ,faithful puppy....
Eventually she appeared with four large shopping bags and one small one...
Look what I've got for you, she proclaimed, as she reached into the small bag, pulling out a woolly scarf,....and it was reduced from £9.00 to £3.00...She proudly announced....
I managed to make my frozen lips work as I croaked, thank you, it's lovely, but under my breath I muttered ...but too late..I'm beyond help......

And Yes, it's been a cold and miserable week here......

Regards,
Gordon the Frozen One....

Spent the morning working in the garden - sunny but chilly. Nowhere near as cold though as some places seem to be. Obviously paying to be inland for once.

Well, I'm not in Spain, Britain or Canada. On another thread, Gaz was upset because I didn't provide a weather report.

I'm glad I'm not at home in Canada. Temp. there (Ottawa) right now is -17 C or 0 F. (I'm not sure wether temperatures reported on here are in C or F)
Here in Florida (Kissimmee) it is not that nice. 12 C or 54 F with very chilly winds. Well below their normal average of 71 F about 21 C.

However, I'll survive.

Oops. Gaz is on that other forum that cannot be named (ML). I'll have to do a better job of remembering where and when.

Overcast and 7 deg but not as cold as yesterday (Morón de la Frontera, Sevilla) I thought my hands were going to drop off yesterday as I hung out the washing :shock: At least the strong wind dried the washing nicely.
It has been trying to rain this morning, just a few spits and spots nothing much. The hens were unhappy with the strong winds yesterday, just 1 egg (from 15 hens that lay) this morning there were 3 eggs waiting in a nesting box, so they must be happier that the winds have dropped a bit :D
So am I, no need to have the log burner going all day :D

Hi,
Snowing here too .. 0c............just about see three trees down the hill.

Guess IreneD (from another thread) made the right choice :D Concrete and tiled houses not the warmest places in this sort of weather.

Every day here in the Lake district is different, they are right about having 4 seasons in 1 day, Wednesday lovely sunny warm Spring day,Thursday and Friday very heavy frost and black ice on roads, today, every trace of frost gone amd milder with showers.

We got an estimate for our gas bill yesterday and are £55 in debit, ha, the proper reading will easily add another £100+ to that.
When does Winter end officially and Spring begin, not that it really matters as we've had heavy snow in late March before.

Enrique, yes - we are pleased we decided not to come over this time. it's actually 6 degrees here in Lincolnshire today, so a bit warmer than Canillas. Seems crazy :crazy: OH is happy not to be driving up and down the mountain in snowy conditions, although I don't suppose it will last long. A couple of years ago, when we were there and had snow, we were without electricity for 24 hours - a long time - I got very grumpy indeed! Yep, very pleased we decided to stay put! :thumbup:

Wise move Irene, I'm in the Spanish house at the moment and I can see the snow on Maroma from here (when the cloud clears occasionally). Our house is just freezing. We've had the aircon heating on all morning and I lit the log fire at lunchtime but it has only just crept up to 15.5 C in the livingroom :crazy: . Our Sky dish moved in the wind yesterday and we cannot get it to re-align so no TV either :thumbdown: .

Our house is usually around 60 - 62º downstairs without heating on. Upstairs is baltic.
In the winter we don't use the upstairs rooms apart from airing them. Heating was switched on about 15 minutes ago and the temperature is now at 66º. It will hit 70º within another half an hour assuming the voltage doesn't drop. A curtain now blocks off the access to upstairs so downstairs heats up quicker.

The bed has an electric blanket so there's never a problem with the cold there. Roll on Spring.

(I looked outside earlier today ... didn't like it so I have remained indoors).
