Managed to get out in the garden this afternoon and it's absolutely sodden I mean, I know it's been raining almost non stop forever, but the shed has a moat, my 2 veg patches are literally underwater. We've been here 8 years or so and I've not seen the ground this saturated before. What I'd really like is a cold/dry spell or proper snow. Pretty please! (You do do requests, don't you OYBBK )
Thank you Satsuma if only I could do requests, I'd be snowed in now until the end of January!!!!
I can see hints of a cool down from mid Jan onwards. The conditions over russia are looking much more promising. The only caveat, is that it looked jolly promising in November! interesting blog about stratospheric warming, a concept that I'm slowly coming to grips with.
