It may be an unusual way for you to welcome the new season, but it is in keeping with the crazy kind of year that we all have been having. Make a little snowman to celebrate. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Our seasons are far from predictable just like our weather in general, but after the mild weather we’ve had, it still came as a shock! Looking back I found I’d blogged about cold wintry conditions and snow on 25 Sept last year and you can never be sure it mightn’t sneak back again in Oct!

When there is a coating of ice on the roads I am really reluctant to leave home and drive. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yeah I hate ice and prefer staying at home rather than taking the risk. We had a heavy frost this morning and it was cold as – there would’ve been ice on the roads this morning for sure.

We are in a period of rainy weather, though the high temperatures are still getting up over 30 degrees C. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Exactly, we get the black ice too. Really freaky.
