Tipping it down outside right now. Well maybe it will ease the water concerns next year. And maybe just maybe water bills will not rise

Price rises for utilities....

According to the News last night Electricity prices are set to rise by
an average of around 3% (depending on which area you live).
Water and Gas are to remain static for the beginning part of the year
(their choice of phrase,not mine).
Happy Days!:)

It's exactly the same here in Tavira, and we have plenty of wind too. Boxing day was beautiful but other than that it feels like it has been raining for weeks - it's a tad depressing!

Be ready for a really cold and wet winter, wet spring until mid May, a really hot June, They expect a mild July and August and normal September and October. Those are the predictions, in the farmer’s calendar, for 2010.

Poor old Blighty goes from bad to worse !
It seems you don't need to live in the north these days to experience a lot of snow.
Basingstoke snowed in !!!
My old home of Cambridge has had a fair old battering too !
Yep! I'm originally from Surrey,spoke to my dear old Mum yesterday & she told me she had about 7 or 8" of snow in the garden & even the postman was struggling to get around.Methinks we are better off over here!!:clap2:
