I thought more would be posting in this thread as its well into autumn now. This week the midlands has its 1st cold night and there was some slight grass frost on the golf course in the morning and its still pitch dark at 6:30am when we ment to start work but have a cup of tea until its light at around 7am. In 2 weeks time it will be the end of british summer time and get an extra hour in bed.

Nick,

it looks like we are going to go from summer directly into winter as they have forecast the first snows for Tuesday and Wednesday of this coming week. Last week the temperatures were up to 30/32°C. Colours were very autumnal and fantastic though.

Woke up this morning to find that Frau Hölle (the local name for winter) is in a hurry and she arrived early - snow on my car and the forecast amended to having a complete cover of snow down to 500m by the end of Wednesday!

I tried to get my winter tyres fitted this morning instead of the end of the month - no chance. So I will be driving home slowly and carefully on Wednesday and hope that I make it in one piece!

Welcome to winter folks!  ::)

Been watching the autumn colour show from my upstairs windows. Kept me going post op for sure. The Virgin hot air balloon rises into the sky nearby and that's always a sign of spring or autumn. Just waiting for the Lake District hills in the distance to grow their white patches!

Today the clocks go back one hour and british summer time ends and the mornings and evenings are getting darker by the day.

The leaves are coming off the trees now on the golf course and have got alot of leaf collecting to do during the next couple of weeks.

Having had my first days of skiing last weekend - as far as I'm concerned Autumn is already over!

We are rapidly going into winter here although the colours fading out of autumn and into winter are fabulous!

Roll on more snow - skiing again the week after next!

It seems that the whole of the U.K., Europe and the Middle East having tremendous storms, floods and the gales have blown most of the autumn leaves onto the ground.....a good day to stop in and catch up on some reading or telly.......

We are very busy at work collecting leaves on the golf course and are dropping like snow at the moment and seems like an never ending job at the moment, we start work at 7am now as its dark up till then.

The ducks are complaining that they are going to drown, because we have had so much rain this week...............

It has been very wet the last 24 hours in the UK with rain all night that I had to close the golf course this morning as the golf course was waterlogged and not playable. Also very strong gale force winds up to 80mph in some parts of the UK along with flash floods.

Is it wet in Manchester John as its ideal conditions for ducks at the moment in Birmingham.

Don`t mention the weather in Manchester - it`s lashing down and the ducks are having a smashing time.

Those poor people who are homeless in Cumbria after all the floods they have had over the last couple of days and seems to be happening more often. They say its happens every 100 years or even said on the news every 1000 years but it happens more often then that and most be global warming contributing to the floods we have had in the UK during the last few years.

Was it wet in Manchester John when it was raining in Cumbria as we did not get that much rain in Birmingham while the north of the UK got drenched.
