Spring forward



It's 2°C/36°F outside and feels colder with the wind chill. The seasonal average for Epsom is around 12°C/54°F. I don't think the temperature has been much above 5°C since Christmas but I may be wrong.

We put the clocks forward at the weekend; you know: spring forward (fall back). It doesn't feel much like spring here.

I scraped ice this morning here in Texas. Of course Saturday it is supposed to be 90 Fahrenheit.

Travis, that's even more extreme than in Epsom! I didn't think that was possible.

Just off to bike home in the face of bitter north easterly winds and gusts.

It'll be twenty metres of snow over London next, mark my words :o)

fairyhedgehog said...

Lexi, I was thinking about that. Ice Diaries is beginning to look eerily prophetic!

Debbie said...

I heard there's going to be a heat wave at the end of April. Maybe that was an April Fool joke that I fell for. Come on Spring!

fairyhedgehog said...

Debbie, I do hope it wasn't a joke! Looking at the weather forecast it looks like we're going to be getting warmer weather within the next week but I can't see any sign of the sun coming out.

Now I understand why Ol Man Winter refuses to budge!!

Computer Says No.

LOL!!! Take care

Kitty, if only we could reboot the weather! It's snowing today. Not much... but still, it's snowing and it's April. And Rufus is blaming us for the weather!

I'm back in Chicago and it's cold here, too. We're still wearing our winter coats every day.

fairyhedgehog said...

Stacy, I keep hoping for spring but I still needed my ski jacket, scarf, hat and mittens today. Oh, and two pairs of trousers!

Simon Kewin said...

Most amusing! This cold start to spring will mean we get a gloriously hot summer. Although I say this with no scientific justification whatsoever.

Old Kitty said...

Lovely fairyhedgehog!! Summer's here!! Hooorah! Have a great bank holiday! Take care

Kitty, at last we're seeing the sun! Hope your Bank Holiday is a good one.

I wish I could get rid of my facebook account, but sometimes it's the only way to find out anything...

I'm fine with cooler weather. Everyone wants to Gibbs-slap me :P

fairyhedgehog said...

That's just how I feel about Facebook.

I had to google Gibbs-slap!

We've finally got warmer weather (cool is one thing, freezing is another!) and we even had sunshine over Bank Holiday Weekend which is almost a first!

Old Kitty said...

It's Sunday and what's happened to the weather!?!? Where's the sun!?!??

Make it return!! :-)
ps. Hope you are well!

Take care

fairyhedgehog said...

Well, it is England!

I'm well, Kitty, hope you are too.

Old Kitty said...

I spoke too soon!! Now the sun is out and all is sunny and warm and full of hayfever (but this last bit I don't mind as I've been missing summer and am just glad it's returned!)! Hope you are ok! Take care

fairyhedgehog said...

Kitty, I'm just hoping this good weather lasts! It's so nice to see the sun!

Old Kitty said...

40 days of glorious summer!! I think St Swithins (sp!) day is going to be hot!!! Yay!! Take care

fairyhedgehog said...

Yes! We has a summer! It's 34C here (that's 93F for those who prefer that!)

Thanks for popping in, Kitty. It's nice to get visitors!
