I would quite like a few weeks of frost please, the fields are extremely wet and muddy, it would be nice to have some hard ground to walk on!

As long as we don't get snow.  Very still and dull today with occasional drizzle.

Out earlyish in the morning as woke up and not raining , acheive outdoor tasks before the rain , but a +4deg C seems colder than of recent days, less wind.  Need to be up early tomorrow as off to Doncaster for the day.

Wendy, I know the problem! Makes everything hard work. I wish you a dry frost!

We had a slightly damp walk up to Letcliffe yesterday. Glass has fallen to 28.5" during the night, it's raining at the moment and perhaps we are in for another showeryy day. Wind moderate so that's not too bad. Days are definitely lengthening, still reasonable daylight at 16:00 yesterday despite cloud.

Cry  No rain in sight here. Today it reached 41.5C, our hottest New Years Day in 112yrs and tomorrow we have 40C .  One of our towns up north will have 46C (oh god!) 


All thru the fields and meadows gay  ....  Enjoy

Yes...it is 'the pits', Cazza.
The only good thing is that my Peaches are ripening rapidly. When it cools off later this evening, I must take the step-stool and a bowl out there and harvest what I can. I have a sneaking suspicion that my back neighbour has been harvesting from the rear of the tree (it is near the fence but doesn't intrude on his property)....but I really don't mind a bit. They are so luscious and tempting, he probably couldn't resist. And we can only eat so many....

So hot out there. Febby came back from his walk to buy the newspaper and looked like he was melting. (I pass on the walk when it is this hot).


get your people to phone my people and we will do lunch...MAZ Go to Top of Page

Short walks in rain yesterday. Got caught in a stinker of a hailstorm at dinnertime but well wrapped up, only had to change me trousers!

Clear sky and much colder this morning. Glass at 28.5" and they tell us we are in for a spell of wintry showers. Deep Joy!  I am concentrating on keeping warm, dry, well rested and hydrated while my Man Flu takes its course.....

Realised that my barometer was reading far roo low so I looked up the current pressure and adjusted it, it's years since I did it. It now reads 29" and as it has been falling all night this agrees quite well with Moh's glass. Of course, no domestic barometer is dead accurate, it's the movement that gives the clues.

Mine is reading 28.1 this morning Stanley, and agreed with yours at 28.5 yesterday. A wild and noisy night with the electricity supply cutting in & out constantly in the early hours. Loads of gadgets beeping & flashing and the security lights outside going on and off....I should have got up and thrown the main switch.

My reading is just below 29 now.  Extrememly windy and we have had sleet showers with the sleet going horizontal, anyone caught in it would have a sore face.
