Raining, raining, raining. Don't you know we're in a drought?

25/04/2012 at 11:48

I think no-one's told the clouds!

25/04/2012 at 12:42

Well - it's not as bad as was predicted (crossed fingers for tempting fate).  Showery rain rather than continuous downpour, and sun inbetween.  Quite mild, too - but far too wet underfoot to do anything useful in the garden.

I can't stand it any longer! Pulls hair out. Puts on gardening coat...wellies...zips up.

Teesside, so sorry to rub it in but the sun is shining though it does keep vanishing for a few minutes behind the cloud at 13:00 hours after being out all morning and not getting wet.
Now for an egg sandwich (I had the bacon one yesterday) and off to the library though I may just stop and buy some sun glasses .

Clearing here. garden is a bog but the skies are bluish

It is literally changing minute by minute from sunny to raining

25/04/2012 at 14:57

Who put kitty among the chuckies then, I should not have mentioned sun glasses.
Got into town as it really clouded over and a bitter cold east wind came straight up river from the north sea. The market stall holders dashed for their fur coats and I shot into the shops. It is now blowing strongly, feels like snow, "oh well" I saved the price of sunglasses then. Changed menu baking potato's gone in oven, salad will keep.

Blowing a gale again!! We're having yet another 'ciclogenesis explosiva' apparently - a deep weather front which causes winds of more than 120 km/h (75 mph) - the same one which is causing the torrential rain in the UK. The worst one we had was in 2009 when winds of 240 km/h (150 mph) were recorded on high ground. It lasted all through the night, during which time we had no electricity. I really thought the roof was going to blow off the house! I don't think we're in Kansas anymore Toto...

I think the English term for 'ciclogenesis explosiva'  is hurricane force winds. Scary stuff.

it's pouring in the Caterham area, thanks

In Cheshire my sunflowers are desperate to get planted out but they're taking a battering even in the vold frame.  I'm not so worried about the rain or even the wind but those sudden fierce hail storms are a killer!

25/04/2012 at 19:41

We had a lovely sunny day today

25/04/2012 at 21:09

warm morning, rather close but with a storm blowing in across the sierras, rain tomorrow but then warm again but only in the 70's-three record hot days in a row this past week

25/04/2012 at 21:53

Did I blink and miss summer?

26/04/2012 at 08:01

Still grey, still chilly, still windy and still showery. It's the repetitiveness of it all which is starting to do my head in!

26/04/2012 at 08:54
Have now got a cold. So hot water bottle filled, wood burning stove lit, box of hankies ready. Going to make a nest on the settee, and fester. Weather here the same old depressing blah.
26/04/2012 at 09:11

Hope you feel better soon figrat! Sometimes a good fester is the only solution!
