Re: Weather!

Good grief! I can actually see some blue sky. First time I've had the front shutters open in about 4 days.

Opening the shutters does help seeing the sky

Not for the last 4 days - just sideways rain and lots of cloud.

Re: Weather!

I must admit I'm glad I wasn't travelling the last couple of days. Just a light breeze at Düsseldorf.

Did try to snow when we were out doing the weekly food shop, but it stopped.

wow the one at 2.07 looked more like a helicopter landing. No wonder he had to take off again - they should have let him land in the other direction.
Or maybe not

Re: Weather!

Been gloomy here today, fog which never cleared off and dull.

Good thing we spent most of the day in Fribourg doing errands and enjoyed a glorious sunny winter's day.

Re: Weather!

No more than a gentle breeze here if that. Keeps trying to snow a bit, but only a few flakes floating on the breeze. Just hit 1C outside, warmest it's been all day so far.

Re: Weather!

It's freezing, grey, depressing and never ending it seems.
I got my Philips daylight back out to at least trick my subconscious - or my body? Not sure what it functions on but it does - into believing there is life on this planet.

Glad to know I'm not the only one

I did everything last year - invested and made my apartment look friendly and springlike in-preparation for the next winter onslaught

Bought a good air humidifier. Nice winter clothes - with the motto " I will embrace winter this time"

Didn't help

Re: Weather!

Normally I love winter, but when it is just cold and grey then I start itching for spring.

Here's a little something to help us all get through this:
