    Same as your Cornelia, I find the cold and wet days a bit depressing. I just love getting out and about. It's not often it get's this cold or miserable though so we are lucky really.

    Well, erm,hate to tell you this ............. the price of snowshoes has gone up now as demand will be high soon.:cute:

     

     

     

     

    Which reminds me I must put the snow chains on the car.

     

     

    Perhaps when you arrive you can give me a lift to fit the ice breaking attachment onto the boat???

     

     

     

    Nah, seen a few flakes trying to fall years ago,that was it.:wink:

    Went out and bought an electric blanket today! Seriously thinking about gas ducted heating too as we have no heating apart from a few patches of underfloor on its last legs in the tiled areas - hall, kitchen/family room.

     

    PS - technically its still Autumn till 1st June - then Winter really begins !!!!! Last Winter I experienced was December 2010 so shouldn't grumble.:biggrin:

    I can cope with the cold but will it ever stop raining? I thought SA was the driest state in Australia!

    No wonder I got grumpy...my rose-tinted glasses fogged up!

     

     

     

    :biglaugh::biglaugh::biglaugh:

     

    At this time of year expect some major grumps and arguments breaking out as well - the weather brings it on.,

     

    Which reminds me - have to go and pick a fight with the mods after not handling a reported post..................

    I think July and August are the coldest! Winter seems to last a full 3 months here. We have just finished replacing some of the lead light windows with double glazed units.

    It's making a massive difference!

    Well the eldest and I have cricket today so it will be slip, slap, slop and slide - it was engrained into me as a kid and has never gone away.

     

    Would rather be having a few cold ones though :wink:

    It's a question of wearing layers really.

     

    Yesterday was fantastic,clear skies and lots of sunshine. Warm in the sun.

    BUT the start was very cold and as soon as the sun goes down - so does the temp.

     

    I wore a t shirt under a shirt for the day then a fleece on top later.

     

    12c here can be a lot colder than 12c in the UK, very difficult to explain but us "locals" know!
