Very Cold . . . well below zero
We have some snow laying around. Looking outside it doesn't look very cold, but if you go out, there is a definite nip in the air. The temperature must be well below zero, although I'm not sure what the exact temperature is. We have had a slight fall of what at first looked like rain, but must be the beginnings of a further fall of snow. I suspect that if we do get more snow it will settle as the ground is so cold. I can't believe we have the first sightings of daffodils and other spring plants beginning to appear above-grount, particularly in next door's garden and on the roundabout on Standing Way, crossing over towards Asda. I imagine that as soon as the snow comes again and covers the shoots it will prevent these plants shooting up, although a cover of snow might possibly protect them until it thaws and spring can start properly.
