    Ive noticed a problem with the original thread, taking me to page 1 of the thread. Assuming its the same problem as my original Brexit thread (stolen by WMC lol) that there were too many pages, i have started another weather thread (stolen from lightbodyae55 lol).

    The only person who got all his work done by Friday was Robinson Crusoe.
    Anything i post over three lines long please assume it is an article lol.

    I’m in awe of your close proximity to “the end of the rainbow” Georgie, that must have been a special moment. Lucky you.

    Tharg …. I’ve seen the Osprey three times in the last month. The first time was really special as I could see the bulbous glass cockpit very clearly due to the position of the sunlight through my lounge window. The second sighting was more fleeting as I heard it while washing up and had to get to the lounge down a long hallway from the kitchen and it was overhead before I caught my breath. Yesterday was the most exciting as I was out on the roof balcony looking down the valley and the Osprey seemed to climb from below and in front of me, to right above me at about 200 knots (guesstimate). The sound and physical vibration was awe inspiring. I’ve never taken drugs even though I enjoyed the late sixties, but it was as close as I can imagine to being on a high!

    What a wonderful vivid description, POPS. I reckon the sound of the wokkaring rotors probably has something to do with the “high” we can get from aviation events. Merlin engines in Spit’s and the Lancaster, for example, can have an emotional effect. I actually saw a girl in tears at the intensity of the sound.  She didn’t even know what aircraft they were! I don’t know what the science is; think it might be something to with what musicians call “modulation”. Whatever the cause, bring it on! Spitfires, Mighty Wokkas, even the occasional PBY Catalina flying boat are all welcome, if not frequent, visitors overhead here.

    Wind is now seriously from the north. Thus, cold and colder – 4C right now but feels more like 1C. Grey. Wet. Bleurgh. Weather maps say we might get some snow.

    Mitch those cars parked just away from the corner plus the camber of the road looks as if they are just waiting for some idiot to slide a car right into them whilst trying to get around there in the snow or ice ❄️

    yes its an issue esp with the bin wagons as people have to park both sides at times, parking is an issue as theres no offroad parking on this top end. the council did come round in the summer and measure all the grassed areas and surveyed the trees with the hope to put in offroad parking even if it means cutting some of the trees down. which would be great as it would mean we could possibly get chargers installed if they bring them close enough to the bungalows.

    as you can see were set back a good 10 metres at least so its a pain for unloading etc.

    My older brother has the same problem – has to park a similar distance from his bungalow and  every year he falls at least once when walking between car and home.  Among other issues (he has pseudoachondroplasia) are lax ligaments and no ‘ball and socket’ joints at the hips and shoulders, more ‘stick and plate’, so his hips and arms dislocate really easily.  The Housing Association has also considered ‘sacrificing’ the lawned area to move the current street parking closer to their bungalows, but say they can’t afford it.

    Weather-wise we’ve pretty much dodged the bullet here (south of England, about 30 miles from the coast and pretty flat) regarding Storm Arwen.  It got a bit blowy yesterday evening, but not as bad as we feared and nothing like what some folks got.  I don’t think we’ve even lost any trees.

    I did find a huge blue tarp in the front garden this morning, though, blown in from somewhere.  I’ve folded it up and set it at the top of the drive with a brick to hold it down, and hopefully the owner will spot it and reclaim it at some point.  It’s bright blue, so pretty easy to spot from the road.

    Also missed the worst of Arwen here (South coast, Sussex). Dead windy last night. Moderated this morning. Still chilly (0C at 3.30am – bad night’s kip – and still at zero 10am). Bright and cheerful so long as you don’t have to go out. This will entail many layers of warm clothing and silly, furry hats.

    @Georgie i have a bin of rock salt and grit in my porch that i spread out before i go any where, takes me a while to do the whole pathway to the car but its a worthwhile investment. 2 bags usually sees me through the winter as i dont go out much.
