To lower the tone, longer range weather forecasts are on a par with Brexit forecasts.  There is a possibility of very harsh conditions and a possibility of a mild period, but it is very likely just to be colder and dull with occasional snow and ice just like every other February. We will come out of it ok and the Summer will come!

I like your first comment, and the last; a bit like your lovely oak plantation early snowdrops and the last fiery golden rod I look for each year!

 

(but, no much the middle section 🙁)...'cos I rather like a lively late January and February with crisp clear days, wild spray winds and drifts of snow.

 

Next week or so isn't too "longer range" I hope?

I agree with you about the middle bit, but my wife more so being Scandinavian.  On the dull days she has to have a "SAD blue bright light" on when she is in her office.  You would have thought that Scandinavians would be genetically programmed to deal with it but they seem more susceptible.

When we went to Finland at the New Year the minus 20 Degrees C and the brightness of the snow was very invigorating in spite of the low sun.  It was much more bright than I expected and brighter than a dull February day in the UK!

I wandered lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o'er fields and crops

When all at once I saw a crowd

A host of shining white snowdrops

 

Apologies to Wordsworth 

 

I'm trying Chessa, really I am!

A'billowing of bright snowdrops

I think we can improve on the alliteration!

That floats on high o'er fields and crops

When all at once I saw a crowd

A sea of shining soft snowdrops

 

Try saying the last line out loud after a couple of beers!
