No sun here yet, still quite misty & pretty cold. It was very slippery outside so I had to take care when I fed the chickens.

Freezing fog here and the temp did get up to -3C earlier but I think it has cooled again now.  Everything looks very pretty, being iced over with white.  There was a flock of Longtailed Tits in my Ash tree, they looked even more lovely.

I'll try that again!

I wonder if it is colder up there where you are?  We had a few flakes of snow falling earlier but not very many, so I was very brave and went shopping.  I wish I hadn't, the store was full of indecisive people and it took me twice as long as usual waiting to get past them.

I have icicles on the exterior window frame where the heating exhaust goes.

I'll try that again!

Grim, grey & very cold (-3*C) outside, but cosy & bright indoors. My tomato seedlings are now developing their first real leaves....so it is making me think of summer. I think I will need to concentrate on this in the next few weeks if the forecasters are right !!  ponder roll_eyes

It is a lovely sunny morning here- minus 7 C earlier, up to minus 5 now, but the sun makes everything looked sparkly and shiny- lots of hoar frost on trees and bushes, so it is like a scene from the Snow Queen.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

Freezing, indoors and out! Back plate of woodburner fell down and cannot sort it until latest logs have burned.

wave Not frosty here, but a cold breeze blowing.  We have had a little snow and the sky looks heavy with the promise of more.
