Nasty wet weather.
Outlying upland areas had snow overnight with cars appearing in our village with fondant roofs.
Although our local ambient temperature is above freezing, the persistent wetness makes it feel bone-chilling.

Given that April Fool's Day and Easter Sunday just happen to fall on the same day this year, one has thought of a wizard prank to play on the sproglettes.

An Easter egg hunt with no eggs 😀😀😀😀

Wassup?

Can anyone recommend an online 'news' site that doesn't run 'soap' news and doesn't play un-connected videos with even more un-connected videos autorunning - oh and doesn't object to an ad-blocker or want a paid subscription to read the articles?

When PPRuNe is slow (and remember I am excluded from R&N), and it is a nasty very wet day outdoors, I need entertainment.

If all else fails I might resort to YouTube.

I often watch YouTube for tv entertainment. Endless variety of music and some good old comedy and films, and few adverts, if any.

You Tube is great. Any old films you want and great music that you love.

Good morning all.
Happy Easter to all that celebrate.

Chilly here, +1C, and with a dampness that gets into your bones.
Forecast isn't too bad for today but tomorrow we appear to be set
for lots of rain. That could prove interesting as the River Trent is
already running quite high.

A quiet day planned and given the state of sogginess of the garden,
a fairly idle one at that.

Morning folks.

Dry at the moment.

Easter bunny has left a very nice chocolate egg for me.

Me canal society are doing their bank holiday boat trips so I may wander, as in drive, to the Duck to give hand after we've delivered the boys' Easter eggs.

One has eaten the ears off one's easter bunny. It is now completely deaf.

Tis a tad bit wet outside. One is planning to go to me canal today to help out with the boat trips. Should be fun!!

I take it that satellite scored a direct hit on the ocean

Thoroughly miserable weather. The long dog had to be forced outside for his early morning comfort break and is now on his bed sulking and damp. Bank holiday beer and cheese later.

A thoroughly miserable morning.
It is chucking it down and has been all night long.
Looks like it's set in for the rest of the day as well.

Looks like 4mastacker is going to be having some very soggy
boat trips on his canal day. All adds to the fun.

Some weak Sunshine has just turned up, here in Herts but preferable to the rain. A nearby field I normally take a stroll around is a quagmire!

A bit soggy here too, but the rain's stopped and there's nothing heading up the Haven, so it's dog-walking time. Seeing a cocker spaniel do that scamper-and-leap thing they do when they're happy never fails to bring a smile.

Mizzerabuble sleet - snow on the surrounding fields and cars coming in with a couple of inches of white stuff overall.
OAT just above 1 degC and the gritters are out - the volume of wetness at our level will simply wash the salt away.
Heavy precipitation forecast for the rest of day, increasing in severity between 3pm and 9pm.

Same here, except one has eaten the whole bunny. It is now completely no more.

Spring has finally arrived. Sunny and a tad warmer, finally.
