It has been a while since I wrote about the weather in the UK. If you live here you can’t have missed the fact that we’ve had a very cold January, February, March and even early April looked quite chilly.
During normal winters we are used to seeing the odd week or two where the ambient temperatures drop down to 1 or below 0, and then things return to normal single digit temperatures. But this year almost every week has had a bite and indeed we’ve had snow on repeated occasions. The chill has been increased by cold and strong winds. And we’ve experienced the coldest March for something like 150 years.
Well I’ve certainly had a higher heat bill to pay and I’ve even started wearing gloves in winter which I very rarely do. On the plus side I’ve had very little Spring hay fever this year as the winter scared off the pollen.
The warmth is slowly coming now in April so it’s great to see some sun and feel the warmth now that it’s finally here. Happy Spring 2013!
