    In the West country, we have had weather - snow, sleet, rain, hail. And now it's sunny.
    Just waiting for the thunder storms to make the full set.

    Keep warm everyone.

    Slight snowfall overnight here in East Lancashire. The hills are covered. Clear bright blue sky overhead, and blo*dy cold.
    Yesterday we had a lot of biting wind and the chill factor was horrible.

    I am looking at Pendle Hill right now through my window! We live right in its shadow. No witches today, just a lot of snow!

    Thunder snow, @helensaramay! Nothing spectacular in this bit of the West Country, no snow, bits of hail, some rain, now sun. Am on lamp-post watch for later but we seem to miss it every time. Sounds fab in Scarborough @mo53 and East Lancs @Bluetit1802, if you like that kind of weather. Sheepskin liberty bodices essential though!

    But it is very cold and slight blue sky

    Lol. Childhood memories - mum shouting up the stairs "don't forget to put your liberty bodice on under your vest" Whatever happened to them!

    Wonderful! Two members who know what I'm talking about! It is a family saying when the cold gets a bit Arctic, and I remember seeing my grandmother's rather impressive bodice hanging on the line. I wonder if it's a Northern thing as my grandparents were from Lancashire?

    As children all my girlfriends and female classmates had to wear them. I believe they were a form of corset without the bones. I seem to remember mine had some sort of rubber inserts, and they were tight. No suspenders though. My mum never wore one, but my nana always wore a corset. I remember strapping her into one once.

    Brrr! I had enough snow to last me the winter last week (hills above Whitby), but now we are home, hopefully the odds will be much lower.

    Hope all of you who get the snow are snug and safe and won't have to dig yourselves out like we did!

    My aunt bought me one when I was a nipper, from the village shop in Buckinghamshire. She and my mother had had to wear them when they were little Kentish maids, so not just a Northern thing. I hated the one I was given, once was enough.
