So, how's everyone coping with weather? From what I see on t'interwebs, the UK seems to be getting quite extreme weather? Floods, and now a blast of cold?

Here, November was the wettest for decades, but around here anyway, we had no floods. This morning is frosty, but not too bad. We've had some really mild days too. I'm hoping we escape without it getting too much colder. I don't like driving on icy roads, but I go to check on mum every day, and that's half an hour each way, on mostly country roads that wouldn't recognise a gritter if it came along.
Lead me not into temptation. I can find the way myself!

A couple of roads round here flood with run-off from the fields so it all gets horribly muddy but otherwise doesn't affect me although the water meadows the other side of the small river have flooded three times - but that's what they're for! Three nights of frost, last night the worst but frost has gone from the grass now as uniformly grey cloud. Yesterday the frost remained all day where it was out of the sun. Fortunately the country roads I have to use lead to primary schools so they are gritted.

Just had two really frosty days, which has been a relief from the continual greyness and drizzle. Luckily we have missed the worst of the rain and hens are happily running about and sitting in sunny spots

This is interesting, from the Met. Office. Shetland seems to have come out well this year on several counts, eg sunshine hours.

Psst. Don’t tell everyone. They’ll all be wanting to move here.

But more seriously once the Greenland ice sheets really start melting they will prevent the Gulf Stream getting through and winters here will be very cold. Hopefully I’ll have snuffed it before then 😀
