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

Sunny(ish) day in Marlow, so up the allotment to move a load of the free wood chippings to make the paths less mucky. Picked some sprouts, Savoy cabbage, leeks and a swede, so that's dinner half sorted! The River Thames in Marlow has gone over both banks and there is a fair bit of flooding - the river itself is an absolute maelstrom, and I guess the flooding will get worse in the next few days.
Hope most of you out there are not suffering too much, and hopefully things are improving in some of the worst affected areas.

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.

The Fens; Quelle suprise! It's raining. The garden is a sodden mess, but I know it can only get better.

31/12/2012 at 11:35

Wet, windy, dark.

Went out to take rain water reading this morning to find that the wind had blown over the pot with the rain gauge in!

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.

What's sun??

31/12/2012 at 16:10

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.

31/12/2012 at 16:20

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!

31/12/2012 at 16:28

That's all I have - liquid sunshine - did see some brieflt and watery yesyerday morning.

31/12/2012 at 18:53

Rain. Bah humbug.

31/12/2012 at 19:07

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.
