The weather in Nottingham over the last week or so has been a bit crap. Not crap as in “bad weather” but crap as in “inadequate”. The country is supposedly in the grip of some terrible winter cold snap, and yet we seem to have missed it here. It’s not been especially cold, it has snowed but failed miserably to settle and it’s just been a generally crap winter storm.
We had a period of about four or five days last week where the snow seemed to be falling for a good few hours, left a miserable layer of white on parked cars and precious little else, then melted within ten minutes of the sun coming up. For winter weather, this is just a plain crap effort by mother nature.
Having said all that I can’t say that I’m looking forward to walking home from work this evening. The wind is fair rattling these ancient windows and it doesn’t sound very nice out there. It sounds mad enough that I’ll be chuckling to myself regarding some of the poor buggers that I work with that are going to be subjected to it while watching Nottingham Forrest lose to Spurs at the City Ground later tonight. Hope you’re all wearing vests guys!
