February 2014 weather summary.

Well I am much more able to make this post after deciding at the end of January to write a monthly summary for the weather as I have kept myself more aware of things!!

So what have we had over the month of February??

Well temperatures have actually been quite mid ranging from 11 degrees Celsius to -2 so a couple of light frosts have occurred but nothing major in that respect.

We have seen thunder, lightning, hail and snow but none of them in great quantities and the snow never settled for more than half an hour or so.

There has however been A LOT of rain and plenty of gale-force winds. My area of the country wasn't worst hit but we saw gales in excess of 80 m.p.h. at times and for days on end the winds were fierce causing some damage around an about....

On the other hand we have had the rare still balmy day where it's been a pleasure to take Trojan out across the fields and bask in the warmth of the watery spring sun and listen to the birds singing their lovely choruses.

Obviously we have also seen the days slowly getting longer and it's nice to see a little more light in the day.

  2. March has come in like a lamb here, it's lovely and sunny, though quite cold. I just hope that doesn't mean that it's going to go out like a lion.

    1. The one thing I hate about the wind is hoe it seriously drops the temperature and chills you to the bone Ann.
