The big Spring Freeze

We are now nearing the end of March and with British summer time officially beginning on Sunday when the clocks go forward we are most definitely stuck in winter mode. However cold Cornwall is it is not as bad as up country. For those of you who didn't blink and miss it we did actually get a few flakes of the white stuff today.

So it was a very light flurry and it didn't settle but Cornwall had a tiny amount of snow non the less. I know we should be grateful of the slightly warmer weather but quite frankly unless there is going to be enough snow to give us snow days off work and let us build a snow man or go sledging in the Cornish fields then quite frankly it needs to be spring right now.

With Easter only a few days away and weather forecasters saying the cold snap could last another month when are we going to get spring weather?

We all know that the last few summers have been complete wash outs with 2012 being the wettest on record, fingers crossed if winter is lasting this long surely summer can only get better.

Here's fingers well and truly crossed for a hot summer this year in Cornwall.

Cornwall on flood alert

Yesterday being the first day of Spring and the Spring equinox we got off to such a great start, it was dry and bright all day a little chilly maybe but the skies were blue and winter finally seamed behind us. Then today the heavens have opened, all day it has rained non stop and the worst is yet to come according to the weather forecast. 

With flood warnings out for the evening for the whole area Cornwall is yet again bracing itself for the worst. Driving home this evening on the main trunk road through Cornwall the road was only just passable with deep brown muddy torrent rushing down off the fields and into the roads. 

Lets just hope over night it doesn't get too much worse and we wake up a little soggy but not to flooded anywhere. 

Be careful on the roads out there tonight everyone in Cornwall.

Really amazing cover - Can you guess what it is?

As a lot of my regular readers know i'm quite into my live music especially local music, supporting bands in the west country like Willie and the Bandits, The Jeremiahs, The Claze to name a few but after seeing the singer song writer Craig Hammond post this on You Tube I just had to share it.

Can you guess the song before the chorus?

Bloody Brilliant!!!
