Haiku for the week

Blue sky and sunshine
Frozen marrow will not thaw
Still in Winter's vice

Temperatures last night supposedly stayed several degrees Centigrade above freezing, but I'm not convinced: it felt absolutely arse-freezing from shortly after sundown, and our breath was smoking before midnight. There was very high humidity after a day of rain, and it was that dampness - almost as bad as London - that drilled the chill into our bones.

The 5-day forecast is currently suggesting that we might get overnight frosts again on Sunday and Monday. What has happened to the weather this year??
