Minus thirteen degrrrrrrees

O.K. now I know that for some of you out there -13C ( 8.6F in old money) is a walk in the park, time to put the parka away. But here in the east of England that's cold and that's the temperature we woke up to on Saturday morning after the coldest night of the winter so far, and I don't even know what the RealFeel was.

After a hot & hearty breakfast we took Mortimer out by which time it had risen to a balmy -7. It was so cold that my hair froze, not just froze but was growing ice crystals. But it was beautiful.

So here's the morning in photographs.

And do you know - I still put my washing out!

Until next time



  1. I put my washing out too, in the very similar weather we're having in our part of France. And really, it's for the childish enjoyment of bringing it in, stiff as a board, to prop up against the clothes airer: or perhaps to use a rigid sock for a playful thwack at anyone foolish enough to be within range

  2. Sharon,
    While the snow and photos are beautiful to look at I am sure it is absolutely frigidly awful. Or at least that's how I feel. We are finally warming up a bit here in Montpellier today so I hope the same is happening for you up there.
    We Americans can learn a thing or two from you Brits and Irish as far as hanging out the washing! I certainly have. Not always happy about it but I have the line heavy with white shirts and jeans today.

  3. Hi Aidan

    I confess I do have a bit of a liking for snow - any excuse for a log fire & mulled wine! However the cold spell has been around for a while and I'm a bit nervous at the long term effects of comfort eating - it won't be long before spring and the big sweaters will have to go!

    Warm regards
