    Photo on the left taken at 04:00 on January 7, 2018. Photo on the right, taken three days later, at 14:00 on January 10, 2018. Same location. Same thermometer.

    Eastern North Carolina weather. Don’t like it? Wait a minute, it’ll change.

    I've been outside in temps of -40 F (and a bit colder, but no one had a thermometer). I was also a diver on a couple of local VFDs; nothing has ever compared with the cold you feel under the ice in the dark.

    That's not the sort of weather one associates with England...

    Is it not? english weather is not famous for being the best anyways, but north to south it changes quite a lot. The south can be decently sunny and warm, so to say,...but the further north you go the more "game of Thrones/john snow" type of weather emerges!

    These up and down temperatures are crazy; when it goes from the teens up into the 50’s over night, you get heavy fog! A mariner’s worst nightmare. Friday we had zero visibility, rain and growler ice floes across the harbor. Nine hours of high-stress/zero-vis navigation through the always-busy NY harbor was one of my least favorite days as a captain :eek:

    @ButteMT61 Thanks Scott! I appreciate those words. That’s really what it’s all about: finding the right jacket to wear for whatever weather condition we happen to be in!:D
    My wife actually collected my boat pics and had them made into wall calendars; we printed a bunch and gave them out to friends. Very popular! Next year we’ll print more.

    Late last week we had three days of above-freezing temperatures which meant the gravel driveway thawed slightly and some dirt patches turned to mud... Everyone know where I'm going with this story, right?... On Friday when I returned from lunch with a friend I parked as normal. But the temperatures plummeted over the weekend and everything re-froze, including the mud on the driveway, which stuck hold of the front tires of my car. No amount of pushing or chipping away at it would free the car. I called my mechanic to ask if I got it pulled by a tow truck was there any danger of snapping a transaxle or something. His son said, why not run the car for a while and it might warm up the mud enough to free the car. I've got a Civic, which sits really low to the ground, so it made sense, and indeed it worked fine. So I'm mobile again! Otherwise I would have had to wait until this upcoming weekend when it's supposed to warm up again.

    15-20 cm of snow tonight, predicted. I'm not holding my breath waiting for it, but I'm sure we'll get something significant.

    No A-2s here in London... :confused: Maybe two if you can manage it. B-10 does well, but flight jackets aside for now.

    We have about 1-3" of snow here in Blighty and the whole country has ground to a halt!
    Nice weather for my Irvin though (even if it is fake!;))

    That's what my family over there said (they originated here in Canada). They said it's a lot of snow for people who've mostly seen snow only in a snow globe!

    We got around 8" overnight. It's a winter friggin' wonderland today!

    In Wales there has been 51cm of snow (in the Vale of Glamorgan, the southernmost district) and record low local daytime AND night-time temperatures in the industrial valleys (Tredegar -6C at night, -4.7C mid-day yesterday). And this is a generally mild part of Britain.
