I am afraid that I will be away in Cuba when this competition closes and am not back until 26th February. Could someone please do the honour of posting the poll and I will be forever in your debt  ;)

Rain, floods, clouds, wind, even had some sun (but not much)! Nearly had it all so far this year, just waiting for snow in Northants.
May the Force be with you.

If I do an entry for this, it will involve snow.   Like the 6 foot pile beside my driveway that runs along for 20 feet (6x20 = lots of snow).

Well I`m expecting su and temperatures from 25-32 c, maybe a bit of rain on my first day in Havana and there`ll be trouble if I don`t get it!
Doubt I`ll be able to get a picture for the comp though as there is seemingly no decent wifi on the island - expensive and slow. It better not snow on Thursday and stop my flight!

This is not the entry thread, I split this off the entry thread because everyone was replying to it, including myself by accident.

Thanks for that. Would it be better to delete the other chat thread now then as it seems we now have 2 chat threads and 1 entry thread? Well I know I set it up right - just got people chatting in the entry thread for some strange reason!

I expect some confusion now but have messaged Andrew to make sure he puts his entry in the entry thread. I`ll be away from tomorrow and would apologise for the confusion but it wasn`t down to me  :D

The weather must be getting to some of us.

Like Andrew, I too, took  a shot through the window. This is our lovely, South facing sun terrace.
With a bit of editing, to give it even more wet impact.



It's not an entry as I don't know how often, when and for how long I will have time to visit the site.

Jinky, have a great holiday!
