    Amazing the difference a week here makes, even though it was 2″ snow on the road out the village on Thursday morning…

    It was shorts and t shirts weather a little further east.

    Very nearly double figures.

    Of course, the midge will be along soon enough

    Peru, apparently.

    Forecast here is showing the possibility of snow over 2300m next Saturday, which is the peak of the highest local mountains.

    There was a slightly chilly wind today in peebles. I put a fleece on. But then had to take it off when I started riding. So I might put the snowproxes on later.

    A bit nippy first thing this morning, can’t be long now…

    Last couple of days I’ve been putting a wool Pendleton shirt on over my teeshirt, so it’s definitely getting nippy!
    Really getting nippy in the Southern Hemisphere, mind:

    The Peruvian government has extended to nine more regions a state of emergency called to cope with unusually cold weather and heavy snowfall.

    At least two people have died and 33,000 others have been affected by the cold spell, local officials say.

    Tens of thousands of animals have frozen to death over the past week.

    President Ollanta Humala has travelled to Apurimac, one of the worst-hit areas, to oversee the distribution of emergency aid.

    The state of emergency would be in place for 20 days, an official statement said.

    The heaviest snow fall to hit Peru in a decade has killed tens of thousands of llamas, alpacas, cattle and sheep, and left farmers destitute.

    A man died when the roof of his hut caved in under the weight of the snow in southern Carabaya province but the circumstances of the second death were unclear.

    Three people were rescued on Saturday from the same region after their home was cut off by snow.

    Rescue workers said the three, two girls and an elderly woman, were suffering from frostbite and snow blindness.

    The cold front has also hit Peru’s south-eastern neighbour, Bolivia, and Paraguay, where a combined total of five people have died.

    I dread it getting properly cold in case it means you slipping a pendleton jacket over your pendleton shirt

    Skins under layer for me yesterday, first time since before Easter. Weather is certainly on the turn. We may get some warm days but the nights will be a tad nippy

    Those are ghastly! My shirt’s a western style in a blue-green check, very understated.
    Just had another look at those jackets, I’m just going to find the bottle of eye bleach…

    God dandruff? How very dare you. We all know The Lord uses H&S.

    Plus, it’s turned into pissy rain now.

    Still, my snow shovel and grit is now on standby to clear driveways of elderly neighbours; only productive thing I do all year!

    UK Outlook for Thursday 5 Dec 2013 to Saturday 14 Dec 2013:

    A band of rain will spread southwards during Thursday, giving snow over high ground in Scotland and northern England. Clearer, colder and windy conditions will follow from the northwest with showers, these falling as snow from northern England northwards. Showers may turn wintry in the south later on Thursday and during Friday but the south and southwest should see the driest weather. Temperatures are likely to be below normal and feel colder still in the wind. Little change is expected during the weekend, with unsettled and cold weather continuing, and snow for northern Britain in particular. Thereafter, milder conditions are likely to spread from the west across much of the UK, with some more settled weather over the south.

    Basically its going to get colder later in the week with some snow for scotland and N England. I think the strong N wind will be making it feel much colder. Get yer Merino pants and vests washed 😉

    What’s the point of merino if you go and wash them.
