1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 35 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

It is looking like a dicky couple of nights ahead for the Jessies down south.

I was particularly surprised that - here at least - it rained consistently from 20.00 to about 04.50 last night, when I could finally get some sleep though by morning there was little sign of the deluge.

Been raining here for the last couple of hours, and the same seems likely for Friday night.

BTW, this thread is still called "Batten down the Hatches 2019-2020" - isn't it time for that to be updated to "....2020-21"?:-rofl2

Another large downpour for most of this morning, just before the second cold snap.

We've had much worse snow than this a few times this winter, for which there was barely a murmur on weather forecasts :confused Must be snowing in the home counties..

Well - from what has been "going on" for the last 5 years or so, the view of most Brexiteers seemed to be that people in the UK & NI should not consider themselves be "Europeans"!:rolleyes:
