Gritting Leicester - Weatherwise Services have that covered The four seasons in the UK all have a distinctness, yet climate change can sometimes make the distinctions blurred: Winter is generally defined as the months of December, January and February. Spring is March, April and May. Summer June, July, August Autumn is September, October, November.  Gritting

Are you looking far and wide for gritting services near me? There may be something quite odd in us writing about winter, snow and ice when the UK is currently basking in a mid-July heatwave. You'd expect summer in July, we know, we know- although it's worth reminding people that we did have snow flurries

Spare a thought this summer for those in the 3 hottest places globally

Summer has allegedly arrived in the UK, a signal for the Weatherwise team to get some well-deserved rest and lap up the Vitamin D and rays until work begins again in late September (Oh What a Night?) Some like it hot? Except this summer, thus far, has been a bit pathetic to be honest and

When does summer 2021 actually start?

Because we've had a cold winter and a cooler spring, lots have been caught by surprise that temperatures during the day and at night remain so low. But. It's not unusual at this time of year though as people are lulled into a false sense of security about heat. Clocks go forward. Sunsets don't happen

Everything is blooming one month later in 2021

We don't know about you but we've noticed a change in weather over the past 12 months of lockdown - spring has arrived later this year. If you're the type who scrolls through Facebook memories or your Instagram feed, you will have noticed that tulips in your feed 12 months ago have not yet appeared?

Turn the heating up? We’re not in Yakutsk

You may be familiar at home with the battle of the thermostat? The game where one person wants the heating raising whilst the other complains that it's like a sauna in the living room? Spare a thought then for those who live in Siberia - officially the coldest place on earth. In 1933, a record

Got my first real six string … in the summer of 76

Yes we know. The title is inaccurate. Bryan Adams may take offence and rock up at our Loughborough snow clearance HQ and ask for a "chat". It's deliberate obviously as 1976 was the mercurial peak of hot weather in Britain - well the summer was. Some of our team remember it vividly -

Be prepared – this lesson must be shared

One of the most ingenious films of recent years is "Hoodwinked". If you've not seen it, you really should as it's clever and funny for both adults and children. It's based on the fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood, but has a quad narrative running and us, the viewers, don't really see the big

There’s no business like snow business

We sincerely hope you don't have one of those ear worms, where a song gets stuck in your head on loop for hours and days on end with our punny song title. There are some real correlations though between show business and snow business if you'll allow us to stretch the analogy. A theatrical performance
