We still got mild weather in The Netherlands.
Temperatures max. tomorrow up to 14C, wow that's high.
Seems that spring comes.
Being a summer lover/fan I'm longing for hot weather.
How about you?

Best regards, Herman

A little less precipitation would float my boat. Na , that don't sound right !.
A little less rain would make me happy. And a little less wind.
It was dry enough earlier to gently scrub the new tyres in on my Ducati. That made me smile :)

I am also beginning to think I should have kept a weather proof camera !

It's been a very mild winter here in Edinburgh, just like last year. Last year I sold my snowshoes and mountaineering skis, as there was so little chance of using them. Just now it's 7c - warmer than it should be.

We had a relatively mild few days which melted most of the snow but more cold weather and snow on the way this week :frown:
I don't like extremes whether they be hot or cold so I'm out of luck.

Well, living just an hour or so south of you Garry it's been surprisingly nice here today - very mild and dry (for once). Got out walking the poochess this morning and she didn't get too muddy this time. I was actually tempted to get the car out, drop the roof and go for a drive in the countryside (bike's not on the road yet) but i had 9 wardrobe doors to hang. We'll probably pay for our nice day tomorrow - and for the rest of the week :)

What tyres did yer get?

This. New England got up to 10C for a few days this weekend, enough to melt a lot of the snow off and clear up some of the paths we bike on, but now it's going to be below freezing for awhile and tomorrow calls for another inch of the fluffy stuff. Predictably, I have February Syndrome.

Since I'm just a tad south of the Berkshires (mountains), I have to report very similar weather as Kyle and Robert. Two days of it being in the high 40s F, gave me a feeling of hope - along with ice and even mud. Back to very cold weather - below zero at night. "February Syndrome" - never heard of that before, Kyle. I think I've had that since just after Christmas.

That said, the goldfinches are enjoying themselves as are the other birds at our feeders.:flowers_2:

Herman, my thanks as always for starting a conversation here on SC! Let's keep those reports coming in! I'll try not to be too envious of you all who are having such good weather.:wink:

I grew up in Georgia, where the "winter" means light coats and almost no snow*. So once the wife convinced me to move to Wisconsin (and then to MA for a job 7 years ago), we figured out that you have to either dig in and like the winters, or move away and stop complaining. So we started cross country skiing, among other things. I'm good for most of the winter... I brew stouts instead of IPAs, I make a roaring fire in the wood burning stove at night, we ski, we throw parties, and go sledding every chance we get. But once the temps creep up to 10C like last weekend, I can almost TASTE Spring and it's hard to go back to frozen mud in the backyard & snowy paths.




*this year being one hell of an exception, the poor bastards.

The seemingly constant rain of recent weeks seems to have moderated to frequent showers here in Cheshire/Staffs borderlands. Temps pretty mild over the last few days, up to 12C. Many plants are starting to burgeon (as my old English teacher used to say, a ten and six word) which makes the pessimist in me fear a cold snap. Off to Portugal for the weekend on Friday, I could do with some sun to get rid of the rust...

Another nice day here - we're being spoiled! I actually got the car out this morning for a run - the roof stayed firmly in the "up" position though I'm afraid. It was a lazy man's drive, the thing was covered in dust from all the recent work on the house so it was far easier to take it out for run and blow it off than to do it manually!

Just looked out of my office window - it's raining again now :frown:

You do know, BB that we Brits LOVE to chat about the weather right? It's our favourite topic of discussion, we're obsessed with it. :)

Would that be the Algarve area in Portugal ? I know it well and miss the Portimao area in particular, beautiful if you love the beach.
