Thursday's Forecast..........15/12/11........week 50.(and a little something extra!!)

Well it's been a while since I wrote a weather post and I am sorry about that but to be honest you haven't missed much of late.

Over the past few weeks the weather has been pretty un-remarkable and mundane. Usual temperatures ..though maybe a few degrees higher than is the 'norm' for this time of year.

Wind, a bit of rain, sometimes bright, sometimes overcast.

Well that was a summary from the last time.

This last week however has turned cold. The winds have been ferocious and we've had some frosts...and rain on a daily basis though usually this has cleared up by the time dawn has broken over the horizon. I'm not sorry we haven't had the bitter temperatures of last year...but I could do without the winds!!

Snow is predicted next week..but we shall see!!

Now for the bit of something different.

I wanted to tell you about a new blog that has just started up.

This blog has just started up about an allotment and the owner is both VERY new to blogging and allotments. As is usual for being a newbie in the allotment world they were given a piece of land which needs lots of work but have gone at it with great enthusiasm and I thought it would be nice to tell you all about it and thought you might like to go over and check it out....maybe leave a comment or two for encouragement...and even some tips if you can.

Hope you enjoy and I wish him all the best for his allotment and blog and will keep popping over myself to see how he's getting on.

Well that's it for today's post....I have a little something else to tell you...but that will have to wait until the weekend. Stay warm and dry!!!



  1. I hate strong winds too - they can be so destructive!

  2. It looks like the winds are due back again, I think it's the worst kind of weather, so destructive. I shall follow the link a little later when I've got more time, it's good to find new blogs to read.

  3. I'd rather have unremarkable weather than cold weather. It has warmed back up just a bit in my part of the world, but I know the cold and snow will be back.

  4. OOO you tease Tanya! Can we wait until the weekend to find out?

  5. we're getting some of those strong winds here tonight. Nothing seriously strong but it's more than just a breezy

  6. GLA and far the winds have stayed away from us since I last posted...but the temperature have dropped terribly.

    Jo...I hope you find the time to check out townfarmallotment.

    Ratty...i would quite like to live in a dome which I can open up and control my own weather...that way I would only have rain at night...oh and I would make sure I could create snow when I wanted it too!!

    allot of veg.....The wait is over!!

    Ann....I don't envy you those strong winds....hope they blow themselves away soon!!



keep it clean...keep it relevant...I look forward to reading your comments!!
