Thats what is so weird, we have only had three days since the clocks went back when Ive had to scrape the car

Even today it was 7.5oC

It is seriously mild here, way too mild, we are usually getting -5 on average at night here, we are getting +5

Average daytime temp so far this winter is around 8-10, we would be expecting 2 or 3

Re: First daffodil

I saw my first beautiful pink blossom trees today, three of them together.

I heard the other day that we may get heavy and prolonged snow at the end of Jan/early Feb.

If this happens it will damage things that are just beginning to grow and send out tender green shoots because of the mildness, won't it.

We'll just have to wait and see, nothing we can do about it.
