    Thanks for the heads up Keith, despite the micro climate we enjoy here in the N. East, I better nip out and get some cover on my melon patch in the back garden.

    I have to say that I have no faith in weather forecasts. All the technology that the Met Office has and they still get it wrong, badly wrong too on occasions. All these other weather apps on phones, computers etc, one of which predicted yesterday ' No precipitation expected within the next 120 minutes ' - I looked out of the window and it was ' hissing down ' and did so for the next half hour or so. No the best weather forecast is the No 1 Eyeball and my pine cone on its piece of string hanging from the garage - look out of the window and you will see what the weather is - pine cone open = no rain - pine cone closed = rain - pine cone partly open = showers - " simples "

    I do the same, Chris.
    We have six Pine cones, we got them from under a tree in San Diego , California four years ago and they work just as good over here,

    also I look at the leaves on my very large Sycamore tree, it is around 100 feet high.
    If the leaves are hanging as they should it is fair weather, but if the leaves turn upside down then unsettled weather or rain is forecast.
    Never fails.I also look at the clouds and wind direction.

    You pick up the cost of this and then pass it on to your customers, whilst at the same time going on as if nothing had changed.

    In Europe there have been over the years three carbon credit in effect, all traded on the stock exchange in the same manner as shares.
    In each case they began at one Euro, all ended up as duds with the value falling as low as one cent.
    So in effect it means nothing much at all just a conscience vote. Does anyone actually check those trees get planted?? Reminds me of the fake currency....bit coin. There but not there, all swings and mirrors and slight of hand.

    Think that this has more to do with the climate change thread rather than
    predictions of a possible bad winter this year in the UK.

    Reprimand noted. Though I would've thought harsh winters were associated with climate anyway.
