Makes me feel better as I’ve just got absolutely drenched again on my daily walk.

Not sure how much more of this I can take before I’m off again.

Cold isn’t an issue but constant driving rain is.

Njoy 😎

Thanks pal, bit cooler here now about 60c, could do with another 10c shouldn’t complain given the weather in the UK, anyhow I’m back for the Burton game so I’ll experience it first hand. I Might me off again end of January if weather stays shite.

Plant hedges. They don't blow over.

Twatting builders built ours 9 ft tall as there was a nursery at the back but only used the same thickness of posts as the usual 6 ft ones. Along with crap drainage that only after a good few years when it's all settled we find ourselves with a swamp and left with a big expense.

Good call on hedges though, or maybe conifers?

No conifers!!!!

Unless you get well on top with them early on, then don't use conifers. If they get too big and you chop them, they will be brown and ugly in the middle.

Get yourself some bare rooted or cell grown plants- this is the perfect time of year for planting. Use a mix of indigenous species. Prune the top out too to encourage more side growth.

You can buy them at various heights already. Very cheap.

You can also buy "ready" hedging in sections and just transplant them. Quick but expensive.

Yeah I can't really blame anyone for fucking off in winter, the British climate in autumn/winter is abject and to be honest just going to get worse

It's just grim, I reckon it must have rained every day for at least a month now. It's absolutely chucking it down at the minute as well, properly chucking it down. Even the dogs are refusing to go out in it

Maybe a period of brightness to look forward to.

Two different weather apps saying from around Thursday/Friday we could be in for around 10 days of clear skies.

Temps around 5 in the day, and zero or a touch higher at night.

 

I hope you are right, crisp winters days are ace for a good walk and by Christ I need some of them now.
