A cold cold winter

Uploaded by: FormerAussie

Wednesday December 8, 2010

Levens valley, Cumbria, United Kingdom

Caption: Eleven in the morning and still -10 centigrade, and the edge of the UK Lake District looks thoroughly continental. Most winters it doesn't get this cold in January - but this is the second or third in a row.

Hmmm... interesting on Jeff Master's blog. Eyajoekollfjoeller or whatever the spelling of that thing is probably did have SOME to do though... I remember we had great sunsets and a rather chilly winter after Mount Saint Helens blew her top in 1980.

We had a hard spell last winter before Mount Unpronounceable went up - and bits of the UK had a colder than average winter the year before that as well. A blog or two back, Dr Masters highlighted some NOAA research suggesting the melting of the arctic sea ice might be involved.

I wonder if the volcanic eruption causes some of that...

Thank you both. Normally -18C or below (below zero fahrenheit) is rare in the UK - we've already registered that in several places for the first time this early in the winter, and record quantities of snow in places - the east coast gets a form of lake-effect off the North Sea and one-two feet has not been uncommon. In Edinburgh the army is clearing streets - this country is not built for this! Mild this weekend - then back to the freezer next week, they say.

What a beautiful but frigid looking scene. This winter is proving to be extremely cold for many people - worldwide. Welcome back after a long absence.
