More snow

Yet more snow. This lot only just settled; moderately thick, but turned to slush later in the day. In particular, the puddle of dirty roadside slush I feel into was cold and wet. But along the footpath it was still beautiful:

This is to prove to Jules that the UK isn't all bad.

CSR is less enchanting, but even so the symmetry is appealing.

As to ENSO... hmm. Don't get your hopes up.

Exciting news just in - its cold in Cambridgeshire. All over the UK I expect, but I haven't checked. indeed I haven't checked out all of Cambridgeshire, let alone Cambridge, but never mind I'll trust the reports. I tried putting my foot onto the snow and I can confirm: yes, it is cold. Not much…
and yet more photo spam: Last week it was cold. It was warmer at the weekend. But this week it is cold again. Though as RC points out, its not going to be the coldest winter for a millenium. We went rowing tonight. Oddly enough we were the only crew out. We had to stop past the Elizabeth way…
Cold, isn't it? And quite dark too (is that the [[Equation of time]]?). But I'm rather enjoying this snow - it is clear and crisp, so far. I've only fallen off once. [Update: Looks cold but lovely from above [http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/in_depth/8447023.stm ]. Mind you, it is warm elsewhere]…
We're having a cold snap. About -2 oC, and very still. Possible snow later. Punt touts are still out though. Ducks don't care. I've never known what this means. Refs * Flickr

The trees are blooming in Seattle. Cherry trees started last week. Plum trees in front of the house are starting blooming today (23-Feb-2010) Warm, sunny days are not common in winter here, to say the least, but this winter we have had plenty of them.

Obviously, snow followed by a quick melt at this time of year is clearly a sign that global warming is a hoax!

[It has been rather snowy here, but there hasn't been much "snow => no GW". Possibly because of the rather public Canadian Olympics lack of snow stuff -W]

How inconsiderate of those two cars on the left to have parked facing in the wrong direction.

Wasn't sure what that meant. Hopes of withering or hopes of record temps based on continuing El Nino.

Now new data on SOI and MEI are out, it doesn't look like El Nino is withering rapidly.

Ah. Then it is a shame my comment got caught in your spam filter. I was saying that while temps might be falling in SD terms it might not be falling rapidly. A kelvin wave helping out and ocean atmosphere coupling finally getting going in the right location.

That might have looked quite sensible and a little ahead of the recent data though I wasn't predicting such a significant rise in SD terms as occured. Shame I put too many links in it.

I am much less sure what happens now but I am betting against rapid transition to La Nina.
