21st January - Today's New: Four Killed in Glen Coe Avalanche

Sadly, fine winter weather on the Hill can turn deadly.   Survivor pays emotional tribute to four young friends killed in Glen Coe avalanche tragdedy.   Fly now, free ....

 More snow yesterday though it was light in Evesham and for a time even turned to sleet, meaning only about another 1cm of accumulation.   It's expected that the big freeze will last at least 4 more days though at the moment it looks like Evesham is simply in for a cold, grey week with a slow thaw, but further snow does remain possible.

Meanwhile, Boris Johnson makes himself look a bit silly (and short of memory) saying it's snowing and it really feels like the start of a mini ice age.  Where was he in the late 70s and 80s I wonder?   What would he have thought in '47, '63, '79, '81, '86, '95 ....... ?   Because UK snow: it's not that unusual - it;s just winter

It's not just Britain experiencing normal winter weather though:

And evidence that a gamma-ray burst 'hit Earth in 8th century' - the the world still didn't end
