Spent about an hour and a half, first thing this morning, clearing my driveway.    Satisfying to meet the postie half way through, who seemed impressed by the vast expanse of black tarmac, apparently they’d grounded the entire fleet of vans yesterday. :graduate:

By mid afternoon it became apparent that I really needn’t have bothered... temperature was a lot higher than forecast, entire area had completely thawed including, embarassingly, all the bits I didn’t bother clearing .   ::)

Ah well, I daressay the exercise will have done me no harm. :)

We've got off fairly lightly here in the SW Midlands, but no sign of a postie since Wednesday.

Talking of posties, yesterday it was bitterly cold, and I went out for a walk, dressed up in my warmest clothes with a hat, scarf and gloves. I met the postie on the way, dressed as usual in his shorts. :giggle: He advised me to be very careful on my walk because the road surface was very slippery, then went on his way whistling. :)

Temperature here 8.5C and rising, according to a thermometer in a shady spot behind my shed.   Tempted to get the deck chairs out, maybe fire up the BBQ?

It is +3c now , but we had about another 1" just to top us up last night.
Our post man always got his shorts on, but at about 30 he has some of the worst varicose veins I have seen in someone that age  :o Is that what it does ?.

 :hmm: There are some people who just shouldn't wear shorts, me included.


Clear blue sky here, and temp up to 9° later.   :)

It's practically tropical here (near Ashford, Kent) and I'm thinking of looking out my own shorts. :no:

Slight thaw here ~2c. After my recent smugness at having a clear drive, all of the snow on the roof of the house has now avalanched (is there such a verb?) onto said drive!  :no: :o  That'll teach me.

Yesterday I decided to have a short 6 mile walk, 99% of the walk was free of snow (there was lots on the sides of the roads still ) until I had to go through a 4Ft snow drift next to the stile I had to go over, what fun. :no:
