Re: What a difference a year makes

Don't get me started lol. I've been struggling to do an outside job involving car work for weeks. Freezing temperatues are delaying me badly and along with health issues I'm getting nothing done fast Sad
To think.. this time last year we were enjoying a BBQ  Shocked

Re: What a difference a year makes

Having moved house last November, I was looking forward to getting lots of jobs done outside come the spring. So what happened to the spring?  Undecided
@Strat  Do you have figures for the same dates in 2011? I seem to remember that year was even better.

Yes if I remember it was also another early stunner and the summer was a let down. The last proper summer we had was 2010. It's all very strange these days.

Re: What a difference a year makes

My lads Sea Scouts always have their annual Swamp Testing this weekend. This is where they test the seaworthiness of all the boats and safety equipment that they will be using during the boating season, very often filling boats with river water to see if they still float. They were all in shorts last year in the lovely weather and, as you can imagine, there was an awful lot of water being thrown around and kids getting dunked; think it might be a bit different this year with wet suits and cagoules probably being the order of the day

A bitterly cold weekend ahead.  At least I've got a good display of daffodils in the garden that brighten things up Smiley Smiley

Sorry I don't as I bought a new weather station late 2011 and unfortunately archived the old data in a very safe place Roll eyes
This page of historical weather data for the Sheffield region gives an idea of prevailing conditions...and much better they were.

Re: What a difference a year makes

We had a very light dusting this morning. No rain. Light snow is due overnight.
York will flood when it all starts running off the hills.  Sad
