Winter's Coming!

Post  countrynaturals on 12/1/2016, 3:22 pm

For the first time this year, I noticed snow on our neighboring mountain tops. I guess winter is on its way. geek

Did everyone see NOAA's "guidance" post today?

Of course, the degree of cold will vary from place to place, and over time.  Please prepare.

This weekend gone , on Sunday morning we went to near Hereford UK see my 76 year old rather ill brother .

There was snow on most of the Brecon Beacons & an arctic wind tearing across the tops blowing waves of snow powder off the leeward edges.  Lovely sight from within a nice warm car , but honestly , not one you ever ought to be out in , that sort of weather is deadly in the extreme .  No wonder the SAS  do some of their training there  .

In the shade it was barely minus 2 centigrade   .  Sunday night we got slapped with minus 9 centigrade ... nine miles away about 300 mtrs above sea level on the edge of the Brecons  it dropped to minus 11 & has stayed below freezing since .....  till yesterday .

Yesterday a slight thaw set in .. we found someone had installed an outside water point , forgot to insulate the pipe work  or write it down in the frost precautions ledger for the building for it to be turned off & drained down ..

 About 15.00 yesterday the thaw showed that the copper piping to the outlet has split some 3 inches along its length .. water gushing  out over the car park in a lovely rainbow making spray till someone found the stop tap & turned it off from inside the building .
