Well its pretty cold in my part of UK. I was slipping on ice this morning.The Hitch said:It's been a really weird year here in London weather wise, i think maybe the hottest year in history (summer wasn't that hot but every other season has been much hotter than usual) but I think today took the cake. 14 degrees in the middle of the night here in the suburbs in mid December.
I was literally laughing to myself walking through London (where due to urban heat effect it was probably even hotter) at midnight. Took off my jumper even. It felt like mid July. If I had Alzheimer's and didn't know what month it was and had to guess purely off the temperature being what it was at 23.00 I would have said late May.
I'm someone who really appreciates warmer weather and generally pays attention to temperature, but walking through London last few days, so calm, warm, no wind, no cold at all, has been some experience considering usually by mid October we've had our last 10 degree day and it's cold and miserable for the next 3 months. We had 22 degrees at the beginning of November Here we are 2 months later 1 week before the days start to get longer again (hooray) having higher temperatures on the shortest days of the year than we often have in June, especially at night.
Ain't nothing wrong with snow. Snow is better than 5 degrees and rain all day and no sunlight, which is what a winter in the northwest of Europe looks like when we get western wind all the time.ILovecycling said:

Apparently it snowed for about a minute here in Copenhagen earlier, it was so shocking that they actually mentioned it on the radio. Unfortunately, I blinked and missed itRedheadDane said:Darkly overcast, as if it was evening when it is in fact midday, and ****ing down!
I want snow dammit!!!
Sure Anything that makes me half to put on long pants and a jacket is too cold. Once I can get a cyclocross bike maybe I won't care so much about bad weather....bad winter weather and road bikes don't go together very well.RedheadDane said:What are you, some kind of Southern Hemispherian? That's summer-weather.
