    It’s starting to get cold and dark in the evenings here in the South.

    Working on the shed requires heat and light:

    Looks good.
    It’s getting cool enough here some evenings to use lamps/ lanterns indoors.

    I see you have enough work in the dark winter days.
    How cold is it where you live?

    Regards Reinhard

    It’s not very cold by Northern European standards.

    This time of year the average minimum will be around 6C, but (in normal, past years) with regular frosts. As winter progresses the minimum monthly average will drop to 2C in July.

    I love the weather this time of year, but where I live if pretty good for weather all year, really.


    Cheers

    Tony

    Edit: Mild frost this morning. Just before sunrise it was 0.6C, with a perceived temperature of -2.4C.

    A car is pulled onto a lake each spring, a few miles from here. People draw lots on the day when it will break through the ice. Though winter is basically over, the car was still in no danger today,,,

    We had an 8” snowfall just a few days ago... Winter remains long, north of Lake Superior...

    Good fettling weather here on the Darling Downs Queensland. The nights, lately, are down to 14 and the days around 24 degC. Soon it will get colder, but I likes the cold, I can always get warm.
    Cheers
