Just started to snow here in Cardiff.
Proceed, varlet, and let the day be rendered perfect for my benefit!

Unseasonably warm. Day lilies and daffs poking up. Excessive rainfall. Thank Om for unseasonably warm or we would have a foot of snow!

February is my favorite month and we are having proper February weather. Cool but not near freezing in the morning, and some bouts of gentle rain, not thunderstorms.

Also this time of year, it's still dark when I wake up but it's getting light by the time I leave for work and I often see the sun rise on my way. Just how I like it.

Also Valentine's, President's day now that I get it off, and my birthday :D Plus the Steampunk Con immediately following.

So, which president do you dress as for President's day?

James K Polk, 11th President, "Napoleon of the Stump".

And I've only ever heard of him because of Terry. Probably the only thing he shares with James Ensor.

Next week is supposedly going to be a tad chilly, after sticking my nose out the door, I would say the cold snap has started early! Brrrrr!

It's cold out! Geez, this was what I expected in December. Not that it's odd for February really, just that Dec and Jan were so warm it feels weird now.

I''m currently in dublin where it's low medium single figures, around 4 to 7 degrees.
My g/f Essi informs me Turku is currently at minus 22. Thats a 30 degree Celsius difference....
As my swedish lecturer woudl say,, Vow.

I beg to differ. It catches them out daily.

We have a thing over here called The Weather Channel. Might as well be called The Hysteria Channel. I wish I could forbid my MIL watching it. She will get all worked up over a blizzard in Colorado. We live on the Atlantic Coast. :roll:

Well it might keep her visits rarer... Make her think the blizzard snow is too deep to travel...

It's getting cold here - another reason to not look forward to Monday - MiL cremation - early start to travel down, possible snow before we get home.

Thank Om she was against wasting money - minimalist cremation, no wake, no fuss. Though I have bought some flowers and have made up a nice bouquet with a black ribbon, I always tried to give her gifts that were not 100% practical.
