Weather Today

I know that this topic might lead to global warming as today has been very strange weather-wise. Started off by being bright and sunny in the morning, changed to heavy cloud and rain in the afternoon. By late afternoon we had hailstones. Now we're having thunder and lightning. Never known (or I can't remember) such variations in a single day.

Yes the season is definitely changing at the moment. Temperature down to a miserable 29 degrees today and a chill in the air as the local girls are now beginning to wear tops with long sleeves. Ah well you can't have everything.

I spent ages last night trying to explain to locals what hailstones were as many had never seen them before especially during a football match.

Can't wait to see a picture of HB inside his Glasgow pub wearing what I presume to be from its description an Andes hat.

It depends where you live. I rarely get a day of the same weather.

A light dusting of snow, and trains and buses are cancelled, cars abandoned, and no doubt some people started laying in food supplies.

We really haven't much of a clue when it comes to coping with bad weather.

FE. I'm sure I just heard the announcer say that there were 3 inches of snow in places. Some scenes of children making snowballs and of cars being stopped from using a certain road. So it must have been more than a dusting in places.

"So it must have been more than a dusting in places."

But that's the point.

Three inches is little more that a dusting.

Once again it's the "disaster creepback" by the press and TV, where every unseasonal shower is a tropical downpour, and a light frost is the country paralysed with black ice.

Parts of Somerset had up to six inches of snow this morning (hardly a light dusting) which wasn't forecast therefore the authorities hadn't done a lot of gritting. There are now flood warnings in force thisisSomerset

... the clip-on snow / ice grips (also on sale at Lidl) [with steel studs] to fit over your shoes also caught my eye, but only went up to size 11 ... why can't they (Lidl) go the extra half inch?

Aitchbee. Is that why you live in Glasgow? So you can have your boots made in the shipyard... I don't know why I am commenting on it, because I used to take size nines, now I take ten and a half. But I have also lost five inches in height as I have grown older, so I can only think I am gradually sliding down in to my boots.

Why don't you try the biggest on? They stretch to pull on and you just might make it, even if they are tight and don't last as long.

Bing.alau ... if I'm lucky enough to get to your age, I reckon I'll be on size 19's ;o]
