Well so much for the frozen north! +6 and sun all day up here. No snow, and no moaning!

It's still green here in sunny (even in the dark) Sussex.
Move 20 miles SE.

I'm thinking more like 1000 miles south.


Anyway back to searching for my boat gloves which I put in a 'safe' place

You've got a boat havn't you...

OK Ribald
SSE or 22.6 statute miles bearing 106ºT from Soton’ University to be exact. Not even much of a frost here this morning.
Looking at the weather map for Monday/Tuesday - high over Scandinavia and low over northern France = SE > NE winds, which is the most likely weather pattern for snow on the south coast.
