We also got 10cm of snow yesterday! But the coldest so far in my garden is -7C. As long as the fjord is open it usually doesn't get colder here. But they have had -37C on the other side of the mountains!

Thank goodness for open water! -37C would not be record breaking for us at this time of year, but the lowest we will see this week is -6day/-15C night, with most days above freezing this week.. normal is -4day/-17C night.. so this is very warm for us...

Oops! So you got some of that cold weather after all! We will get a couple of colder days this week, but only closer to normal, nothing serious, then back warmer again.. Hope your cold weather, and elsewhere in Europe, does not last!

Hope so too, but they predict temperatures won't rise above freezing before next Saturday.

You guys really live in a freezer ;)
Normally we don't get temperatures that go as low as they are now in Belgium (and most certainly not in West-Flanders (where I live) since it's the province which is nearest to the sea)
But I'm not complaining, I can deal a lot better with cold temperatures than with high temperatures....it's just a shame for the plants

So we'll wait a little longer for the next set of spring bulbs.. unless some of our British friends are staying warmer...

No spring in sight here at the moment! Strong wind and snow today but rain tomorrow! And then more cold weather :( :(

I guess not, Cohan. Great-Britain has been hit by the snow too!

You are lucky! Seems the rest of Europe has a severe winter :(
However, the weather forecast says milder weather tomorrow here so I hope the snow melts quickly.
