Everyone here at Jammy Toast would like to wish all our friends and visitors a Very Merry Christmas. As you will notice we have our presents on display next to our logo and it is snowing while Christmas music plays – we are all very festive here at Jammy Toast. For those of you who are slightly annoyed by the Christmas music, if you look at the top right hand corner of the screen you will see a little fairy, click on that fairy to silence the music and bring peace and quiet back to Jammy Toast.
Jammy Toast has been warned to expect some of the harshest, snowiest winter weather in years. Experts are saying this winter is threatening to buck the trend of previous mild winters with the mercury set to plunge. They predict the cold will set in at the start of next month before thermometers plummeting through December and January. Forecasters say the conditions this winter are set to be “potent” and “memorable” – with snow likely as soon as November.
Here at Jammy Toast we are more or less ready for Christmas and, like the rest of the country, hoping for a white Christmas. However, statistically we are more likely in this country to have a white Easter than a white Christmas! December is the start of the UK snow window, and it takes just one snowflake to fall on London on the 25th December to get the bookmakers to pay out on bets. Yet wintry weather is actually more common between January and March. But how did we become so obsessed with snow at Christmas, and what are the chances of it actually happening?
Our Bears are all suffering a little bit at the moment since the latest Test Series started down in Australia. Quite a few of The Bears are fans of cricket and they have been staying up late to watch the match live on Sky Sports. Unfortunately, England have been having a tough time of it during the first Test which means many of the Bears are arguing and throwing cushions at the television. We would just like to apologies to our neighbours for the noises being made through the early hours.
Here at the Birkenhead Bear Sanctuary we recorded a temperature of -12°c when we went to bed last night. The really cold temperatures were recorded, according the experts, becase the country is covered by so much snow that all the white reflects the heat of the sun back out into space. Just in case anyone was under any illusion as to how much snow we have had over Britain, take a look at this photograph taken by a NASA satalite yesterday…
