Temperature recorded as -23.5 with the windchill on top of Helvellyn today

That's two t-shirt weather for Geordies.

Coldest ever recorded by the Fell Top Assessors, just beating Saturday

Don't think they were able to get up there when the original Beast from the East came by as it was too dangerous

I thought you people got more rain than snow?

We don't have a thread for when it rains as

1. it would be about 3 million pages long

2. The country can usually cope with the rain (except for storm Desmond occasions)

We could have a thread called " Here comes the sun". But it would probably be less used than this one.

Heard a bloke in the shop earlier.
“ this beast from the east thing is like an angry woman coming back in the room and shouting “and another thing”.
A perfect description.

Not snow, but weather related.

The view from my balcony right now.

The air is full of sand from the Sahara. The tree centre-top is 200m away and the houses beyond it are 400m away.

At least it's warm at 27 or 28 celcius.

Awesome photo Tony!

Finally got the ice breaker in the back yard to break things open and finally get on the water!

Note This is the actual ice breaker in my bay but not my actual photo; stock shot.

Took a day-long round trip on the Umea-Vaasa ferry between Sweden and Finland the week before last. It was absolutely freezing - the coldest I've ever been (beating Workington vs Leeds in December '94) but we spent an amazing day crunching between the two countries.

Any problems with bears etc . Must be attracted to camp cooking .

Generally you use a bear bag (up a tree) or a bear barrel (protective box the bears can't get into).  And cook somewhere else.  

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!
