<![CDATA[It didn't look like it was going to be that cold last night but in the end the wind died away and the temperature dropped to -5.2°C making it the coldest night since the 4th February 2012 and only the 2nd sub -5°C temperature I have recorded since the 26th December 2010.
And last night's temperature was not over snow (none here).
Still, the compensation was unbroken sunshine yesterday and with the sun reaching over 23°, it has a lot more oooomphh in it than just a week ago.
Counted 30 stars in the 'rectangle' of Orion last night.
Winter’s over :o)]]>
