What's outside


In my other post last week I showed how tough conditions are In the suburbs. This is a photo taken off the mid day news of overnight action against the fires here:


Yikes. Stay safe out there!


Neithiwr, oedd hi’n bwrw eira ETO. Wnes i ddihuno i ffindio hyn (tua 30 cm o eira). Sa i’n hapus - dw i’n moyn blodau! :slightly_frowning_face: :tulip:
Last night, it snowed AGAIN. I woke up to find this (about a foot of snow/30 cm). I’m not happy - I want flowers!

edited: Why did I write bwrw glaw? Wishful thinking!


I’m so going to say hefryd/lovely.


It snowed here last night as well, but not as much, thankfully, and the sun is out today (though the temp got down to 0F this morning, which is -18C).

@AnnaC, I know you are in the US, somewhere north of me (I’m in Missouri), but I don’t have you on the map so I’m not sure just where!


I’m in the northeast. I’m not on the map because I’m a bit careful about privacy on the internet so I’m deliberately a little vague about personal things :sunglasses:


Sean-O, if you and I could combine our weather and each have a happy medium, I think we’d both like that! :wink:


Looks brrr.

But there’s somethng about sun on the snow (when you are lucky enough to enjoy having both) that I tried to capture here at sunset 100 km north of Yellowknife a few weeks ago. Although some ice-fisherfolk had lit a fire to make charcoal for their smoker, they kept a watchful eye over it, and the sun going down filtered a spectacular light through the trees. It was a balmy minus 25 at the time—bit nippy on the fingers :confused:


Heavy hail here in Caerfyrddin. Can’t take a photo as 1) I don’t know where my phone is at the moment, and 2) it is nearly 2200, so any pictures won’t show anyway !

What a change to a week ago when I was outside in jeans and a t-shirt, and mowing the grass !


A spot of hail in Ammanford just a while ago.


That is truly beautiful! Hyfryd!

(Can’t say I’d like those temperatures, though! :cold_face:)


Yep it’s back to wind and rain in southern England,
Not many things come out for a photo :frowning_face:

Cheers J.P.


I’m braced for the next band of heavy rain due through this afternoon/evening. The lambs are sensibly staying inside the shelters - I think they heard the forecast ! We are dressed for the occasion.

Meanwhile, I now have blossom on my damson tree!
Last year it snowed on the blossom and the insects could not get to it so there was next to no fruit. This year it is alive with very hungry bees.
