It's -10.5 out there this morning.

And the snow is both cold enough and deep enough that driving is getting interesting. There would appear to have been only the lightest of gritting, judging by the cleanness of the snow undertyre.

This is so not the weather I've grown up used to in this part of the world. In most of the years since we moved here, there's been either only a light shower of snow, or no snow at all of a winter. This year, we've had the second big shower already, and last year was unusually snowy too.

It's -9 up here in Edinburgh. Send me another climate? This one's broken.

It does require a certain wilful disregard of what the whole global warming argument has been - more energy in the system means more extremes in both directions - to think that heavy snowfalls disprove it.

It's the Irish I'm worried about. It's not supposed to happen in the South.

(OMG WTF - Midge covered 'Goodbye to Love'? I really should have listened to this CD before.)

What, you mean you can’t do climatology by looking out the window?

Of course you can. At least, you can if you're one of those highly paid Mail columnists.
