Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

Looking like we're in for bitterly cold weather next week with easterly winds, and maybe some snow too. Temps not getting above freezing according to the people at the met office. :surprised:

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

The Sun Newspaper recently said regarding the weather that we are to have a very cold Winter. There would be spells of snow and ice in December and lasting into January. These cold spells would begin in November. But these newspapers always embellish these stories about the coming bad weather. So, w...

Re: Winter 2016/17

Well we haven't had much in the way of Winter weather, just a few days of cold, but mostly this horrid grey, gloomy stuff over the last several days, and its been very mild for mid January. I think we could all do with some Winter sunshine. Maybe we will get some by this coming weekend - if the weat...

Re: Where Have You Just Been?

Have been to Cowling today on what was a sunny and fine afternoon. There were shower clouds in the distance, but they didn't drop any rain, or very little, on the journey home. Been up Grey Stones looking for ancient rock carvings !! :grin:

Re: Spring 2016

Its been a chilly old day today, not much like Spring. Damp and drizzely from early afternoon onwards, but a few dryer intervals in between. Maybe a bit better tomorrow, and getting a bit warmer Friday onwards. Not looking too good for Bank Holiday Monday, with cooler, breezy conditions and maybe so...

Re: Autumn 2015

Looks like we will be in for chillier days as colder weather over Russia continues to bite, but won't be that bad over here I don't think. However, colder nights with slight frost maybe in the offering next week, especially Tuesday night / Wednesday morning. But we can't complain because we have had...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Aha, yes what a great idea Stanley - once Buckingham Palace has been restored let the members of Parliament move into that, and then the Houses of Parliament could be fully restored, or maybe not. Her majesty can live at Balmoral - I don't think she would mind so much in the long run as she likes be...

Re: Summer 2015

I believe we are on-course for a short 'heatwave' from this Tuesday onwards, maybe lasting till Thursday. Weather forcasters are saying we can expect temperatures rising up to 28-29 Celsius 83f, but with increasing chance of thunderstorms by Wednesday. Myself, I don't like hot weather, but many peop...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

This is great reading from Stanley. Keep it coming. Yes, I agree everyone is entitled to an opinion. It's that 'freedom of speech' thingy again rearing its head - and why not for this is indeed a "Community Website" is it not? Well said Stanley :grin:

We don't do too badly with our power supply over here in Nelson and Colne, just one blackout in the Colne area in the last months. One or two little voltage reductions around teatime I notice, especially with this very cold weather. The lady in question called Angela lives at a farm near Barlick; sh...

Re: OBITUARIES

The Dowager Duchess of Devonshire has died aged 94. She was at Chatsworth I believe, and was she also at Bolton Abbey. I understand she was a ardent fan of Elvis Presley with a large collection of his records. And she was the last of the Mitford sisters.

Re: Autumn 2014

You might well be right about that Stanley. The weather forcaster on TV said "nothing unusual at the moment". Very damp and drizzely tonight, mist on the hills, but very muggy.
