    My doctor would disagree. He says that for my weight I should be 12' 6".

    Not sure which is worse. Freezing your off your man bits in the cold, or being so hot your eyeballs sweat.

    -28 to -36 and could go down to -53C

    The US will shiver this week in a once-in-a-generation deep freeze, forecasters warn.

    The most extreme arctic blasts, caused by a spinning pool of cold air known as the polar vortex, could bring temperatures as low as -53C (-64F).

    Weather officials in the state of Iowa have warned people to "avoid taking deep breaths, and to minimise talking" if they go outside.

    Threw a few tonne of salt down yesterday for the impending whiteout, not a flake to be seen this morning. Our Housekeeping department are going to love me.

    Here in Helsinki, on the southern coast of Finland, 55 cm snow and -1 deg C, so mild but last weekend the temperature was -22 deg C.

    Here in Helsinki 63 cm of snow and the temperature just climbed to 0 deg C. Yesterday was sunny and -7 - -8 deg C, so excellent day for some skiing, but now according to weather forecast +1 - +2 deg C up to Tuesday and all rain up to that water or sleet, so much slush in the near future. From Wednesday onwards subzero weather will return according to forecasts. IMG_3792a.jpg

    Today light rain and +1 deg C. Rain is poison to snow, so only appr. 45 cm snow left. The snow in the foreground is that which came down from the roof yesterday and during last night. When snow becomes wet it becomes heavier and gravity does the work.
    And while snow is beautiful and makes evenings, nights and mornings much lighter it also means much shovelling in order to keep the driveway passable. IMG_3795a.jpg IMG_3793a.jpg

    I noticed the `Telegraph` had revamped the old story which Jedburgh posted back in 2010 about why people in the North East of England refuse to wear suitable clothes in winter .Worthy of another look?

    At 50 degrees - Southerners turn on their heating. People in Newcastle plant out their gardens.

    At 40 - Southerners shiver uncontrollably. People in Newcastle continue to sunbathe.

    At 20 - Southerners wear coats, gloves and wool hats. People in Newcastle throw on a t-shirt and girls wear mini skirts.

    At Zero - Southern landlords turn up the heat. People in Newcastle have a last BBQ before it gets cold.

    At Minus 10 - Southerners cease to exist. People in Newcastle throw on a long sleeved shirt
    At Minus 80 - Polar bears wonder if it is all worth it. Boy Scouts in Newcastle begin wearing long trousers.

    At Minus 100 - Santa abandons North Pole. People in Newcastle put on socks.

    At Minus 173 - Alcohol freezes. People in Newcastle visit the off licence because the pubs shut.

    At Minus 297 - Microbial life starts to disappear. Cows on Northumberland farms complain of vets with cold hands.

    At Minus 460 - All atomic motion stops. People in Newcastle begin to stamp their feet and blow on their hands.

    At Minus 500 - Hell freezes over and Sunderland fans fear this could be the year Newcastle United win a trophy

    day was sunny temperature was rising, night was cold, -14 deg C, day -12 - -2½ deg C, very early tomorrow more snow sould arrive, now only appr. 30 cm remaining after several days of thaw and some rain, but after a couple hours it should turn into icy (subzero) rain, so by sunrise all streets, roads and pavements will probably be very, very slippery.
