      Something Wicked This Way Comes...   10/09/2019

      The Autumn Supporter Giveaway!       Welcome to the very first of the seasonal BCF supporter giveaways! This month also marks one year since I took on the forum, so I want to say an extra huge thank you to all of you for keeping this place going. I have a little bit more to say about that later but, for now, let's get to the giveaway!     The Autumn Giveaway winner will be getting two Penguin Little Black Classics, The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe and To Be Read At Dusk by Charles Dickens. Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week. Patreon supporters are entered automatically. If you aren't a patreon supporter but you'd like to join in with this giveaway, you can support here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum.   I really hope you're all going to like this introduction to the seasonal giveaways. It's been a lot of fun to put together. Other chocolate skulls may have been harmed during the selection process…

What's the weather like?

A beautiful day here today - bright, with a blue sky. Chilly though, a definite windchill factor.

After all the forecasts hardly any snow, had quite heavy rain/sleet for much of the early evening, then it stopped and this morning apart from some frosty windscreens there was only the merest sprinkle of snow in the garden.  Cold and bright again today.

Well it snowed a bit last night, had a couple of showers around 10.00 and then at 1.30 this morning so I thought everywhere would be covered, but alas it turned to rain and apart from a bit in the garden it was pretty much muddy slush.  Went out at lunchtime and it's sleeting and very windy, horrible:cold:

For the last week, the weather has been extremely windy. So much so, that we have had an orange alert and been advised to not go out if we don't have to. At least it's sunny!

Back to wind and rain today, horribly dull as well.  Yesterday was cold and bright which was much nicer.

We had nice weather yesterday too! It was cold but sunny. Today it's still cold, but it's windy and overcast. They predict rain this week, with a bit warmer temperatures.

It's sunny here too, and the temperature is quite pleasant for this time of year :).

Sunny here as well, last night was cold so there was quite a lot of frost this morning.  Not sure what it's like out at the moment, though it's meant to get into the teens later, although that's what they said last week and it's been quite cold!:cold:

It’s so warm here today I sat outside in a short sleeved tshirt this morning, quite weird for February, I suspect it won’t last! Nice to see so many spring flowers coming up though :)

Yes it looks as if it's quite warm, haven't been out yet but was warmer this morning than it was yesterday when we had a thick frost and it was really cold first thing.  I've got lots of daffs opening out in the garden and several crocuses.

 

Naturally it's meant to get colder and wetter by the weekend:(

Back to cold and rain now, not raining at the moment but did rain most of last night so very damp.

Thankfully Saturday turned out to be quite nice (as described on the March thread) but it rained for most of yesterday and the wind got up, especially around 2000-2200 when it was very windy, although thankfully no damage seems to have been done and it calmed down by bedtime.  Still quite windy today, but sunny at the moment.

We have code yellow today for the whole country, because of extreme wind speeds. It's rainy and overcast. I don't think we'll see much blue sky/ies today. The temperature though is not too bad, it's nice for this time of year actually.

It's colder today and very windy, had to really battle against it at lunchtime!  Hasn't rained though, thankfully.

 

Spoke too soon - now it's raining!:(

Feels very old outside today and it's due to rain later as well.

Hideous - wind and rain, meant to last for a couple of days at least.

Well after some truly atrocious weather yesterday -  I was still soaked when I got home, although it wasn't raining then, but I hadn't dried out from the lunchtime deluge - it's a bit drier today so far, bit windy but quite bright at the moment.

We had that crazy rain in the midlands too! Today was really windy here as well but at least it wasn't as wet.


(I like that the Never Ending Song Titles are about rain at the moment - very appropriate :giggle2:)
