Fiona (bookcoop) awful

message 3: by Beth (new)

Beth Knight (zazaknittycat) One of our local weathermen loves to use the term "filtered sunshine."

Lorena (LorenaLilian) today - blissfully rainy and grey, perfect for crawling in my reading sofa with hot cocoa, cheese and a great book.

message 6: by Lorena (new)

Lorena (LorenaLilian) LOL! I'm a cheese lover ... ;o) I love tea too, well herbal teas mostly, my favorites Manzanilla and Mint, and orange blossom.

Sandra (sanddune) orange blossom time

Yes, in old houses. I have a cut glass vase with a handle that is heavy as lead. Wintry mix is often used in Phila. weather forecasts - rain, changing to snow to sleeet and often back to snow. I like the Pittsburgh way of describing icy roads as slippy.

Sandra (sanddune)
A hard rain- raining cats and dogs

Richard, they used laudanum, too. Stay away from that kind of thing. Having the "Vapors" often used as an excuse for not appearing at undesired social gatherings is a better choice. Nothing ingested or inhaled. Ladies seemed to do well with it. Why not men if they choose?

Favorite Irish blessing - May the road rise to meet you, May the sun shine warm upon your face, And the rains fall soft upon your fields And until we meet again , May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

message 12: by Sandra (new)

Sandra (sanddune)
April Showers

message 13: by Fiona (new)

Fiona (bookcoop) p***ing it down.

grey, miserable, horrid, cats and dogs, chilly, spitting, murky, blowy, blustery, evil, blotchy, rough, foggy, misty, vile...

Why are we looking for words that describe weather by the way?

message 14: by Fiona (new)

Fiona (bookcoop) ha ha ha - funny one Richard - dry up!

message 15: by Sandra (last edited Mar 28, 2009 08:36AM) (new)

Sandra (sanddune) Because it was a new topic and I was pouring out my frustration with long winter while looking for spring.

message 16: by Fiona (new)

Fiona (bookcoop) It's sad to see pretty blossom being blown about in dreary weather. We had one lovely day of spring here and the birds were out and it was warm enough just to be out wearing a small jacket - not even a thick one.

And I went down to Titchfield abbey - an old ruin that nearly 1000 years old - lots of history - but it's just this old shell now - but it is beautiful. So quiet, free to go in not that many people. I would like to go there and read but now winter has returned I can't. :(

The last day of spring we had this huge dirty plume of smoke when the scrap yard caught fire which ruined a perfectly blue day.

What more words?

nice weather words:

sunny, bright, breezy, clear, gentle, calm, warm...

message 17: by Lorena (new)

Lorena (LorenaLilian) Ken, I'll look for Valerian next time I'm at the market. Do you know if they have an organic line to their teas?

message 18: by Beth (new)

Beth Knight (zazaknittycat) Emilee, it is very cold here today in IL. I even heard mention of SNOW. My husband and I are about to move our table and chairs off the patio and back into the garage. I knew we put them out too early. I wish spring could be spring around here.

Singing in the rain. Spring rain. Birds building nests.

message 20: by Sandra (new)

Sandra (sanddune) splatters?

message 21: by Petra Eggs (new)

Petra Eggs (PetraX) This is the first time I have been in the UK in spring for probably 20 years. I'd forgotten the beauty of daffodills and trees in pink and white blossom and the heady scent of hyacinths. Unfortunately I'm looking at all this in a garden outside of my mother's room in a hospice. Walking through the gardens though I keep thinking these are the skybluecold days, not the beginning but the ending of time.

message 22: by Sandra (new)

Sandra (sanddune)
Petra, so sorry.

Dan Porter (ChaoticBuffalo) Richard wrote: "you have a weatherman who speaks in early english?"

Nope. Lived in Oklahoma for 18 years. Very common term there in the spring and fall.

Sandra (sanddune) stifling.

message 40: by Sandra (last edited Jun 21, 2009 04:36PM) (new)

I wouldn't recommend saying it to a pretty young woman though. Hehe!

I will try to use as much brit slang I can think of. By the way - do you know the website ? (you do now) it's quite interesting.
