Second warmest January since records began!

Despite that cold spell we had last week, the Met Office have announced today that this January's average temperature is 5.9oC - the second warmest January since UK-wide records began in 1914. According to the BBC website yellow roses have been blooming in Tyneside....

Thinking about it, it was rather odd that I had to chuck a daddy long-legs outside when I got home from school this evening... Not what you expect in January!

And while we're on the subject of global warming and climate change...
One of the four parcels I received today contained some impressive posters for the Ice Edge competition I mentioned a while back. The idea is that teams of 2-4 students come up with an interesting and original idea to save the planet... And if your idea's the best, you win a trip to the Arctic! HOW GREAT WOULD THAT BE?!

Check out the competition's website: http://www.iceedge.co.uk/docs/home.php and get your thinking caps on!! The competition's stiff - there are twice as many teams registered now as when I first posted about the competition... But if I know you lot, your ideas will be up there with the best of them!! Come and see me if you want to know any more...
