Going over the hill to St Andrews yesterday saw the first white stuff of the year up in the hills.

For the first time this year, we had a very red breasted Robin strutting all his stuff, in the garden yesterday. Was that a warning or a pleasant 'birdy' experience?.

I have noticed that the local council have put out quite a number of roadside grit bunkers, and have informed the public that grit stocks are high, and the gangs are prepared and ready to roll.

In my neck of the woods, last week was part 'T' shirts, sun and shorts, today its digging out the thermals and central heating.

Definitely no freak weather in Morpeth. Early frost soon disappeared when the sun appeared.

Warmer than yesterday when a very icy wind made being up a ladder reducing the height of our conifers very uncomfortable.

In North Lancashire we've had the robins round for a while, in fact there was one in the tree outside my home office window all afternoon.

Every time she sees one my girlfriend points out that they're very nasty birds

alan14 - robins are not afraid to defend their patch. I suppose that's why they are very visible in our gardens.I like to go eye to eye with a robin-red-breast.Mrs Robin usually wins the day.

No sign of the white stuff which has prompted morddwyd to start this thread but early this evening I saw an unbelievable sight. To me that is, someone here may think differently.

Driving down to the main road about 6.30pm I was gobsmacked to see a house all lit up with festive lights. Must not mention the C word this early otherwise FE will be annoyed, there is no doubt these are festive lights normally associated with late December time.

I know the shops are well into the sale of goodies for this particular festival yet this show is surely a bit on the too early side. Not to mention an increase in the electric bill, as if that's not enough to concern anyone anyway.

In the Glasgow area we're looking out the plans for "How to Build an Ark"

I think we've had one dry day in the past week and preparing for another dousing this weekend.

We have seen none of the fabulous weather enjoyed by much of the country earlier this month.

That's what happens when you vote SNP!

cocteau48 - your ARK might be able to harness the power of the winds. I enjoyed watching my little whirligig flowers spinning around this year, on my verandah. I am going to upgrade to a small sized wind generator.

On a personal note, I can generate a lot of wind, but I will not go down that road, just at the moment :0)
