How much more.

How much more.

Back it comes with a white bang again.Just getting over the call from it,a short time back,and now it has decided to pay another visit.

We are in for a very cold night so the roads will be like a skating ring in the morning.No plans written up for tomorrow until early in the morning,after i see the outcome of the weather.

Look's very much like it will be indoor garden work again.Have to wait and see what time brings.

Please don't send it down our way, John. Hopefully it won't be too much.

The bad weather will give us time to order our potatoes and other vegetable seeds and plan for sowing in the Spring. Mary

Lets hope it doesn't stay long this time

Hopefully not,Jacinta.Quite annoying it is.It is fine once in a while,but now to much snow had visited.All the gardeners have seen enough of it.

Johnplotman Johnplotman 07 January 2011 21:54:25

It will indeed,Mary.I have some earlies doing well for the last two weeks and hope to get them into the tunnel for an early start off.

Johnplotman Johnplotman 07 January 2011 21:59:51

Always will,Myrtle.Be it books,trays,seed pkts,and though indoors,it is all part of gardening.There will always be something to keep gardening flowing.

Johnplotman Johnplotman 07 January 2011 22:02:25

I think Cloncaw,about Monday night or maybe a day later,a touch of mildness is to return according to weather reports.We hope for the best.

Oh I hope not here in Wicklowwe have had enough of it. Hope it is not to bad for you John and you get your work done.

We had a lot of rain here today, but so far none of the white stuff, but if it freezes tonight it will be nasty. Mind you I got those things to put over your shoes so I could try them out.

Johnplotman Johnplotman 09 January 2011 14:26:54

The lawn and shrubs etc, are back to their usual colour today Clara,so was not to bad,thanks.

No rain called this way as yet,Fraoch.Hope all went well with your ice protector shoes.
