the Valencia region is on Orange alert for snow

what we have falling out of the sky looks like snow, but it's too warm here on the coast for it to settle



anyone got the proper stuff?

OOOOOHHH thats rather a naughty little profile picture you have there Chica!!!!!!!

No snow as yet, its quite chilly here - well 14c, but it feels much colder. It was foggy this morning, but the sun is now trying to break thru. Snow/rain has been forecast for tomorrow and a possible overnight frost???

Hmm. It's definitely much warmer on the coast. Yesterday was hot and sunny and although it's cloudy at the moment it was sunny and warm when we took Our Little Azor out just now.
Tshirts today but with jeans, not shorts.
It gets chilly at night but I don't think it actually freezes.
Is it often foggy up in them thar hills? Sometimes when I look up at them the tops are obscured by cloud and I imagine you and the other inhabitants of Alhaurin wondering around in thick fog....:D

We've just been for a walk over the hills near our house and it was lovely. You can see further up the mountains the clouds wrapped around, but where we are it was lovely, hazy sun, not too hot or too cold! I think we're in for some bad weather tho

We've just been for a walk...it was warm and lovely, the company was very convivial, plenty of laughs. we discussed the weather and told a few jokes and generally took delight in just being with one and other. We touched and smiled and it was lovely. Then we left the bar and walked slowly home to a home made meat pie with sprouts in a cheese sauce.

Taking the P*** or IS P***d!!:D
Sorry Hombre, but we touched and smiled and went home to meat pie and sprouts :) was a bit too much!!

:focus:

Wooly jumper and vest day today, although the new patio doors and insulation are certainly doing their stuff and after 15 years of freezing every winter in our living room we are sometimes TOO WARM!! I'm not getting too excited cos the really cold months here are January and February but it looks like we spent our money wisely.
Supposed to snow at 400 m tomorrow and we are at 800 soooo see what happens, but it seems too cold to snow at the moment - the temperature seems to go up a little when it's going to snow. I may be skiing down the motorway to work! We've had snow on the mountains around for about 10 days/ two weeks now.
Have had to scrape ice off the car twice so far which is NOTHING compared to other years.
Happy snowy days :smow: to all!!

P.S. Xabiachicha's obviously going to be "hot" :flame: this Christmas :redface: !!

Yes. He's a naughty boy.;)
I felt bathed in a kind of warm New-Ageish glow until he mentioned sprouts and cheese sauce...:(
When Mrs H asked what I had prepared for Sunday lunch, I told her..."Empanada de terne de la casa con Bruxelles au gratin ". She replied "that'll be pie and sprouts then ". The woman has no class.

No, some things are best kept private...;)
Someone mentioned wind - it's currently wild,blowing a gale here (and there have been no sprouts in the house for ages).
I shudder to think what would happen if Our Little Azor got hold of sprouts.
One of the reasons for leaving the CR was the 'unpleasantness' (how delicate;)) caused by the poor quality meat he ate there.
He is a BIG boy.

Over the years I have heard many reasons for emigrating. Career improvement... cultural needs.. the need to travel and broaden one's mind.. the wish to experience life elsewhere on this majestic and beautiful planet of ours, which hangs by a slender thread in the solitude of space , rendering us, its puny inhabitants , feeble in the face of its pure , awesome magnitude.
But moving house because of a farting dog was not one of them. But....there's always a first.

Windy and quite chilly down here too but the wind isn't that strong and it's not that cold.
But definitely colder than we've yet experienced.
