Our wheelie bin had blown accross the garden in the night and it's been pretty noisy but that's about it so far. Managed to make it to the nearest shop earlier without being blown away

It reminds me of Mary Poppins and all the other nannies (rival job applicants) being blown away with their umbrellas. Yes, I know that is a very uncool pop culture reference.

I was a bit underwhelmed by storm Ciara, there have been a few trees blown over and the odd wheelie bin has gone AWOL but that's about it.

If anyone complains in the summer of it being too hot, let's remind them of this last 3 weeks of absolute shite weather and ask would they prefer that?
Nah, i'd rather this than weeks of stifling heatwave, thanks.

Amen to that. Whenever this gloom and drizzle gets me down, I think back to last summer. I would rather put up with anything than that suffocating heat. I can never understand the obsession some Brits have with Australia - like it’s some new paradise. It doesn’t appeal to me at all. Forty degrees!! Are you ****ing me! And giant spiders. Ugh. I’m looking forward to the spring, but I am dreading a repeat of last summer.

I'd much prefer suffocating heat to relentless cold and rain I can't wait for this time of year to be over.

Move to Derbyshire - all we got last summer was rain!

It's sunny in Essex today.

Most British people who move there return within a year or two, but that's probably more to do with realising living there isn't the paradise they expected rather than specifically the weather or spiders.

^ The thing is, though, in 2018, when we did have a hot summer, Spain, Portugal and the South of France had killer heatwaves, whilst Greece had wildfires which nearly reached Athens. You don't know what's coming with climate change.

It's not completely new though, I remember a report from the long hot summer of 1976 about a Club 18-30 holiday in Greece being in crisis because the condoms were melting in the heat!

We don’t really have winters any more, not proper winters. When I was a kid, I remember my dad moaning about starting the car in the cold, and I remember my mum buying cans of de-icer in preparation. Now, it rarely drops below freezing. In fact, I don’t think I have felt cold all winter. It would be bearable if we had some snow and crunchy frost, the sun sparkling on the icy puddles, etc. I love the snow - it’s one of my favourite things in the world. This has been one of the worst winters I can remember - mild, windy and gloomy. Ugh. It’s really starting to get me down now.

^ I said it before - move to Derbyshire. We've had snow and frost.

It's forcast to snow here tomorrow, high temperature 0, low -6 (overnight) - that's for the next two days, although today wasn't as cold as I was expecting. Stansted was bathed in sunshine this morning.

There definitely seems to be a lot less snow than there was a few decades back.

I live in Aberdeen and folks down south might be surprised to hear weve had no snow of any kind this Winter. In fact we had virtually none in the city last winter either. There has of course been some in the higher bits of Aberdeenshire and on the hills but nothing like the levels of the past. Ive been doing a few walks in the hills and mountains this winter, and the 'relative' lack of lying snow at higher levels has really surprised me.

The 'summers' seem to be getting (even) chillier up here too, (the opposite of whats happening in Southern England of course).

Certainly seems like climate change is happening to me...

It was raining here, in the south-east, first thing this morning before turning to snowy sleet that melted as soon as it touched the ground.

When my son was small (not that long ago) we had a few proper snowy Winters here where we could get the sledge out and make snowmen. Now, the winters are such depressing affairs - damp, grey and drizzly. I know some people dispute it, but I'm sure global warming is playing a big part.

I probably haven't caught you in time, Jen, but if you do see this, I hope everything goes as well as these things can - and that the gathering isn't too anxiety-inducing.

^ For some strange reason, the forecast itself completely passed me by!

If only Michael Fish would dress like that (to liven things up a bit). Actually, it's probably not Michael Fish now, is it? Shows how long ago I actually watched telly.

^ Blimey. It's certainly colder than it has been for a while. I'm seeing the coldest temperature that i've experienced whilst in this flat (just over 16c) and it's usually comfortably warm (20c ish) without any heating.

The sky television signal was rubbish earlier, probably means the weather is bad somewhere else, really bad.
