dark wet and haevy rain most of day. Total fed up
The rain has actually stopped here after chucking it down all night. Large puddles visible on compacted bits of a border- dont ever remember seeing that happen ever before in 29yrs here! J.
Its raining again, all this wet weather is starting to get to me, wouldn't mind spending an hour in the garden
It was quite a bit colder first thing this morning. Still quite windy so got some washing out to blow. WManchester.
Then it rained & the wind is increasing even more again. J.
heavy rain in co antrim mild ground very wet.
The Fens; Quelle suprise! It's raining. The garden is a sodden mess, but I know it can only get better.
Wet, windy, dark.
Don't know what has just happened sorry!
Wet, still dark & windy in WManchester today.
Not particularly cold, but because it's so dark we've popped the heating on for a bit. Roll on some sun which always helps cheer things up. J.
Just been doing some sums
Novenber my garden had 123.5mm of rain. Most of that fell in the 10 days from 20th to end of month
In Decenber there was 118mm again most of it fell in latter end of month ie from14th
Add them up and it was a hell of a lot
Now back to excell to try to do charts for next year - can't remember how though. Back to Office for Dummies
Stockton went out when it was cold and grey came back warm sunny and clear sky above. The wind had changed from north to west, the cloud had gone south over the hills and the sun was right in my face coming home so the sun visor was down.I was supposedly going to the shops for some fresh veg but could not even get on the car park so drove on, the next lot even worse so gave up and went to Daughters for a cuppa. Frozen veg tonight from my stock pile.
Tinkling N Y. I believe it is a yellow thingy in the sky; my grandparents told me about it many years ago; but I think it is just a myth.
The clouds have now mostly cleared and a beautiful blue sky appeared here (nr Leicester.) Unfortunately, the sun has just set! Oh well, a couple of glasses of "liquid sunshine" will no doubt brighten up the day, later!
That's all I have - liquid sunshine - did see some brieflt and watery yesyerday morning.
Rain. Bah humbug.
It's finally stopped raining tonight- last night there was very strong winds- so strong that some of my wall flowers were coming out of the ground this morning. Looking forward to some promised dry & sunny weather to start 2013
The Fens: just walked home for legal reasons, left my car 500 metres down the road, at a friends house, I can say it is not raining, but there are many puddles, some of which I avoided. Happy New Year to you all.
We've just left a neighbour & slid our way across the road, then decided that damaging the frozen front grass was better than breaking a leg by walking up the path!
"Happy and prosperous New Year To Everyone"
From Stockton on Tees which is sunny and bright with clear sky's and a touch of ground frost.
A Lazy day today after being woken by a phone call from California as they celebrated the New Year, a little too well methinks.
