Well I m sat here in the garden, nice, bright and sunny mild enough for shirt sleeves... yet all I can here is the fog horns of the local navigation marks and the shipping in the Solent!

Yep no more than 1/2 a mile away there is thick fog - about 150 yards visiblity when I took the dog down to the beach about an hr ago!

Weird weather! Never did understand it too well...


19th Mar 2005, 13:59
Sunshine with occasional an shower, some snow expected, temperatures between -20 and +25.

Here in Stockport clear blue skies, nil wind good vis, an otherwise superb day to commit aviation. Watch it change tomorrow when I actually have the time to get near a thing with wings

19th Mar 2005, 14:37

It is a very nice day up here in Scotland with sunshine.

Of course next weekend being eater it will probably rain:rolleyes:

( Not that it will bother me as I'm off to SFO on VS UCS for Easter):}

Overcast, grey, mild.
As usual.
Battleship grey from horizon to horizon to match the walls of this dreary ops room. It's hard to tell where the walls end and the windows begin.
I'd much rather be in some Irish bar quaffing Guinness watching the match.:mad:

Oh well!

We're still shovelling *&%#ing snow in Wisconsin, about 10 inches of the 'orrible stuff, with more to come...:bored:

Zummerzet - warm and sunny (the only cloud being us losing in Cardiff) and I've managed to break out the shorts for a change.

Rhodie you should be thrown out of Pprune for provocative posts like that. [email protected]!
Its dark grey now, the wall is pale grey so at least I can find the windows.

Krystal, this one's for you:

To tell the weather, go to the back door and look for the dog.

If the dog is wet, it's raining

If the dog is soaked, it's raining heavily

If the dog is yelping, it's hailing.

If the dog looks like it's been rubbed the wrong way, it's windy.

If the dog is leaning to one side, it's very windy

If the dog can't stand up, it's extremley windy.

If the dog has snow on it's back, it's snowing.

If the dog is shivering, it's cold.

If the dog is panting, it's hot.

If the dog is collapsed in a heap on the back step, it's very hot.

The Cat.

19th Mar 2005, 18:43
I drove from Bedford to Manchester and back again today. The mist didn't seem to clear until more than half way through my journey and then as I drove back it became foggy again as I travelled South.

It's most unusual for it to be nicer and sunnier in Manchester than down here (in my fairly limited experience!) :D

:p :p Yo ! as in the road to--and a certain conversion en route as far as my (minimal) knowledge of the Bible goes !-----and the weather is pretty good here in MAN today btw --just in keeping with the thread here!:ok: On the other hand, I do have a prime candidate for shark bait in mnd at the moment and I would cheerfully stuff the :mad: into any lobster pot believe me. The wx may be good here, but I have spent most of the afternoon in a hospital ward with my father ( 85) who was put there at the beginning of Feb by a classic example of the clinically brain dead being allowed to mix with normal society--this :mad: broke my Dads femur collar in four places--and was completely unmoved:mad: --legal action and an HSE investigation may change this perspective of course.

19th Mar 2005, 19:27
You're not insinuating I have repented I hope ;)

19th Mar 2005, 19:34

Just before noon. Sunny 8C. Clouds moving in and supposed to start raining heavily this afternoon and all through the rest of the weekend. Typical.

19th Mar 2005, 19:45
What's the weather doing? Snowing. Bl00dy snowing.

Of course, we only get two seasons here - 'Winter' and 'Road Construction.'


You left out 'If you can't see the dog, it's foggy.'

Thought you might have nominated me for 'Cleverest Proon Handle' on the other thread. :{ :{


19th Mar 2005, 20:29
Why it is just beautiful outside. I think I shall leave it there!

19th Mar 2005, 20:40
I'm bright pink from sitting on my fire escape all day whilst swatting up on air law :(.. Was gonna go out but everyone will laugh.

(central london by the way.. has summer arrived in March?)

19th Mar 2005, 21:04
Yes folks - please remember the date - 19 March was our British Summer 2005.

Beautiful day, shame I sat in a pub all afternoon watching the rugger :ok:



19th Mar 2005, 21:15
Lovely and sunny in Yorkshire today - temp fluctuated between 14 and 17 degrees whilst driving around the county this afternoon.

Jerry, I had thought of that, but Fishtits just cracks me up.

(Imagine a fish with Dolly Parton's boobies singing "Islands in the stream"............funny stuff)

19th Mar 2005, 21:40

Are you sure you are'nt in Scotland??

I lived near Aberdeen for a few years and used to regularly see odd weather like that......The locals used to say it was 'The Haarr!!' (no idea on spelling, but pronounced Agghhh!!! with a 'H' at the beginning and in a Scotts accent!!).

Additionally the main Highstreet in Aberdeen, Union Street, is around one mile long, and you could easily experience each of the four seasons, summer, autumn, winter, spring, when walking up or down it!!:\

Regards, SD..

PS.. to the scotsman who said its a nice sunny day - I bet its still Freezing Cold though!!!

19th Mar 2005, 21:53
Bloody marvellous! Took the Trek 1200 out for a blast down some of the local lanes today. My bum`s a bit achy now, as I`m more used to the mountain bike. Daffodils out in the verges, birdsong, cloudless sky. Relaxing afterwards with a beer in the back garden and saw three buzzards thermalling overhead.

Some of the back lanes perhaps :E :E

19th Mar 2005, 23:29
Anyone fancy shovelling snow off my driveway? The dog and I have decided to stay inside until the grass turns green again...... ENUF snow ........

19th Mar 2005, 23:41

A lovely day here in Formby, about 11 miles north of Liverpool. A cracking sunset over the Irish Sea whilst I was having a run along the beach this evening. Went flying at 2000hrs for an hour and it was looking a little bit hazy, but otherwise not bad at all

20th Mar 2005, 00:05
If the dog is stuck to a tree, it's really, really cold :E

20th Mar 2005, 00:34
It's like a Hammer House of Horror film here at the moment. http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2/skins/Alabaster/images/Smilies/f_vampire.gif

With the mists rolling in, illuminated by the eerie lights of the tower, I'm off to the Church, it's the only safe place!! :eek: :ooh:

20th Mar 2005, 00:57
Sakhalin Island, off eastern Russia, warm Sunday melting the snow - well starting to melt it, it'll take more than a couple of warm days to get rid of it all.
And warm at home I believe, typical, usually is when I'm not there

20th Mar 2005, 00:59
Rhodie -VOETSOK MAN!! It is in the low 50's, overcast and raining a little in central Oregon. Flew for Astra Helicopters at Rand many years ago...one of the first to fly with Ollie on the Radio Hiveldt traffic watch in early/mid 70's.
Cheers and tip a Lion lager for me

Yep, it's snowing like buggery. Freeze yer nuts off. Wind strength like you wouldn't believe.

OK. I lie. It's now 32C on the verandah, not a cloud in the sky, but somewhat humid today. That's because it rained on Friday and was the first rain we have had since OCTOBER!

Even though it's only 1030 I might just have to go out on the verandah and have a beer.:}

Rocky - was going to fly the Cub outa Rand this morning, but a early (08h30 local) meeting at the sports bar to watch the F1 in Malaysia, with breakfast and a few bloody mary's put paid to that idea...

Ah well - tomorrow will be another hard (but sunny) day in Africa..! :cool:

At least two forest fires in Froggyland today, and we're still in winter according to the calendar.
