Rod Liddle in The Spectator is right in saying, “What’s strange about this weather? Nothing at all“.
Many of us will remember winters where we had snow in March, and at Easter too. One particularly vivid one for me was an Easter Hockey Festival in Scarborough, where the volume of snow was such that we were forced to play on the beach. I also think that central heating has sapped our ability to handle the cold weather, and that includes me.
Here are two pictures taken today. One showing a squirrel munching his way through a whole camellia flower, which I haven’t seen before, and another of the freezing water from a roadside puddle in Chobham.
