    Mine is rain followed by rain and on and on. Flooding already on the lower Islands and loss of power there too, but from the mainland somewhere.
    I'm just hoping our Stornoway power station is getting geared up and ready!
    Gales coming in later.

    Hope you are all keeping dry and warm!

    Blowing a hoolie, no snow or freezing rain despite yellow and amber warnings respectively. Not looking forward to going to work in the morning, as I suspect it will freeze overnight.

    Cold by our standards, but nothing that can't be tamed by increasing the electricity bill. Getting warmer now: 7-8 degrees tonight instead of 1-2 last night.

    York is cold, blowey and wet . No frost yet and !as t week the government sent us an extra £100 to keep warm. So all in all could be worse.

    or the appropriate clothes. Presently long sleeve roll neck top instead of vest, long sleeve shirt, and long sleeve pullover and that is just the top half.
    Gas powered heating is on at a sensible level. I do not anticipate wearing a hat when I go to bed.

    Rained all day until about 6pm, and a bit cooler, not made any changes to heating but the temperature in here has dropped by about a degree C.

    Cold to start, rain later but now warming up to a high of 6 or 7 by midnight.

    My oil-fired central heating/hot water boiler died yesterday (Friday) and the earliest engineer appointment I can get (from a firm I trust) is next Friday.
    Fortunately I had an electric shower installed after this happened a few years ago and we have an electric convector heater for the living room. It's been cold, wet and windy all day and my wife has been wearing four layers on her upper body.

    Tomorrow should be 2 degree warmer.

    My wife is not happy.

    Commiserations! I do hope that you can both keep sufficiently warm.

    My original 30 year old centralised gas boiler (i.e. sited in a very central part of my house and not wall hung on an external wall) failed a few years ago, and after considering the options, I moved to relying on a number of electric oil filled convector heaters. I'd been in the house over 30 years, and had accumulated masses of gear, so moving it so that new pipes could be installed wasn't an attractive option.
    There's no doubt that the house is not as warm as it used to be, and I do wear a warm cardigan quite often, so my global carbon emissions must be lower than before. Convector heaters do fail occasionally, but I now have redundancy in my heating system. I also have a gas hob, which doesn't rely on any form of electricity, so can always make a warm drink.
