We've had a generally light and mild winter, which is certainly not anything to complain about. It will snow today, but it's only supposed to be 3-4" or so, which is a pain in the arse, but not a blizzard. Then it's going to get very cold, with wind chills supposed to be below 0F (-16C), and then next week it starts to warm up again, with 40F (5C) in the not too distant future.

If March is to have storms, I hope they bring rain. I hate early spring snow, it's even more depressing than winter snow.

Would you post a photo of your painting in another thread so we can see it? I love seeing other peoples' art. There used to be a poster on here who's wife was a really good painter, we'd get to see examples every now and then, and my daughter's a budding artist too, so I'm kind of biased there.

Hubby dabbles drawing/painting. We met an elderly Brit/Oz on holiday who is a brilliant at drawing. Hubby wishes he was as good.

I wish sometimes I had some artistic ability, painting seems fun, I can't do anything but mash colors together, but those with the talent to paint like landscapes and portraits and such, talented indeed.

My uncle used to paint, was good too, not sure why he gave it up, just stopped doing one day.

Well, the Finnish flag is blue and white!

Here in Sylly Suffolk we had Storm Ciara last weekend, with high winds smacking across the flat land and lashing rain - and we have Storm Dennis this weekend and the wind is already gearing up (although not yet at last weekend's level). The days in between were still cold and grey, but it's a case of picking your time to do something outside.

But a lot of places in the UK have it far worse than us. Two named storms in two weekends, that's climate change for you....

It has been a bit shite and miserable lately. It's quite nice and sunny today....But so much colder than it has been. It's as if it were winter, or something.

Hoping for some rain or at least some drizzle.
Covered in dust from the development site next door and there are water restrictions in place.
Today at least is overcast which in NZ is a blessing as the sun is merciless regardless of the temps.
Incredibly windy again.

Driving rain, high winds and the boiler keeps cutting out because the wind stalls the fume exraction fan

Storm Dennis can just bugger off as soon as.....

Oh I thought you were doing the fun, enriching kind of painting but you were stuck doing the depressing, day ruining kind of painting. You have my condolences.

I've often thought that about him


Little Lion was getting internet outages in Portsmouth, but that's about it. It was pretty wet though, being on the coast.
