It's arrived late; wasn't it due at 5pm?

People were getting quite excited at the prospect when I left the office in Wimbledon at 4 to head back up north. Currently just out of Crewe where there are a few whisps blowing in the wind.

I'm not sure when it started - I went outdoors at about 6:30pm and it was gusting wet flakes about.

Mrs Calthrop says I can't sleep with the bedroom window open tonight. Certain indicator of the onset of snowy conditions.

Wonder where they are going to evacuate the good burghers of Jaywick to?

The Army has arrived in Mablethorpe to advise those living next to the sea wall.

Hot news slightly further north here in Aylesbury; motorists have been abandoning vehicles on the side of the road... not many but seen a few.

(They must be a bunch of soft sods... seen cyclists on the roads - conditions are fine!)

Must be quite a North Sea storm surge expected. I noticed the River Hull tidal barrier being lowered while I was gazing out of the office window this afternoon.

None in Western Sydney. Probably coz it's 41°C but you know how unreliable the Weather Bureau is. Probably snow later.

The problem there used to be in the Chilterns when we lived there (presume still the case) is the councils being very slow to grit so the hills become undriveable for smaller cars.  These then get abandoned/parked which means less chance for the cars that can make it.  Not such an issue in Aylesbury but was always a problem in Wycombe, Chesham, Amersham etc.

To be fair, I was driving down from Whipsnade Zoo but there was no snow actually on the road hence my bewilderment in people pulling off the road and abandoning the cars. 

I am also amazed at the complete lack of self help grit boxes around this area; I haven't seen one on the civi road system.

It was snowing down here yesterday evening, not much, barely enough to stick, and I was harassing my 8 year old to hurry up and feed the Rabbits that we have in the garden in the back, I went out to check on them just as the snow was getting bad, and I found one of them missing, she forgot to lock the cage door properly.

Gone. Plus we have a fox in the area.

She could have only gone into one garden next door, and there is no sign of her.

Friday the 13th I F***ing hate you

I hope you've got an emergency survival kit with you if you're taking your life in your hands driving in snow that deep.

Don't know about Beds/Herts but in Bucks they were usually empty.  Or some dull ****er nicked the grit on the first frost for their drive so there was none left when the real weather came.

Spare a thought for us Sydneysiders who just suffered through Sydney's hottest night on record - although records only go back to 1858 so there may have been worse.

Last night, the temperature in the city got to its lowest point at a sweaty 26.4 degrees Celsius at about 11:00pm, the Bureau of Meteorology [BOM] said.

Then it just got hotter, climbing to 31C by 1:00am.

 

At midnight, it was still around 36C in Penrith, and it took until 4:00am for the gauge to get below 30C.

They also recorded their highest minimum temperature of 28.6C in Penrith
