Typical British Weather??

How mad has the weather been?? Since returning to Shropshire I had been really worried about what the weather was like this time last year and feared it would return again. At its worse the snow was around 9-10inches deep and caused all sorts of problems with transport and day to day life. As lovely as the snow is, this was REALLY deep stuff… the dog in these photo’s is not a small dog, it’s the snow that was really deep!

Early 2014 brought a mad amount of rain and lots of flooding. These photo’s taken by me, early in February and March show the same part of the River Severn under a significant amount of water!

Also in early March we saw rather high temperatures, surely this would be a sign that Spring was on the way… we certainly got our hopes up?? I even bought a BBQ!

Then low and behold, end of March seems to have been replaced with our usual mix of mad weather. For instance over the past 24 hours (22nd/23rd March) we have seen sunshine, warmth, rain, sleet, snow and hailstone!

Please someone tell me this is all coming to an end soon and we will get some nice warm weather again?!

    It’s been mad hasn’t it? I think it’s been a little scary because it’s made us all aware of how unpredictable Mother Nature is! I hope spring arrived soon (and stays) x
