Excellent, this thread is here! Just checking in.

As usual, I am hoping for snow despite the fact it makes prosthetics impossible and the wheelchair a pain in the ass hehe
clap

Well done, Alex. Prepared to take one for the team!

Strangely mine was OK this morning at 06:00 but yesterday at 08:00 I had to full-on scrape the screen.

Last winter and summer were like a Daily Mail readers idea of what the past was like, bitter cold and snow, a 2 week spring and then wall to wall sunshine and high temps for months.
Indeed!

Exactly the same as me. Was a very odd day. Frost in the morning, and then had to use the Air Conditioning later on!

Meanwhile, on the south coast, muggins here was lulled into a false sense of security and went kayaking without suncream. Bit pink now...

I will gladly sacrifice my ability to be upright and at least some of my digits to frostbite if it means I can take pretty photos of Richmond Park in the snow.

Where we live average snowfall is 1.98m and we regularly spend months below minus 20C so British winters are laughable in comparison , however I'm hearing OP that you're in for one of the coldest on record , any truth in this ?

Adding myself to the thread. Summer ended about a week and a half ago and now the regular Colorado Autumn has succumbed to Winter with the utterly terrifying speed that it usually does. The natives here like to boast that Colorado has all four seasons (a bloody odd boast, methinks), but what they fail to mention is that two of them combined last less than a month.
30c last week, snow due tomorrow.

But the mice?

Yep - mice are coming from the fields. I laid some poison blocks on Friday, saw they’d been nibbled so put the traps out (after last year and the plague that ate among other things my 911!!)

Caught one yesterday morning

Looks like a relatively warm week this week, including over night.
