Not a bad morning, but coming over very dull now at 4pm...sky like steel wool and the temperature is dropping, I've just put the gas fire on minimum setting...it can't decide if it wants to be off or on but I expect it will get going soon.
Washing didn't quite dry and needed 10 minutes in the tumble dryer.
Caught up with the housework today...boring, but someone has to do it. Leaves me free for other things tomorrow.

just right here today, Sunny but with a cool breeze, struggled a bit last week when we went from 13 degrees to 25 degrees in twenty four hours...that's extreme even for Britain!

Could be a bit better than that during the week as the wind has swung into the SW. Mind you, glass is heading south as well! 28.8" this morning. Rain coming?

Glass fallen a bit more, today looks as though we could have proper rain, yesterday was sprinkles, plenty of cloud but it never really got going.

Nippy this morning.
Some bursts of watery sunshine, but a chill in the breeze and several showers.
One of those strange days when it was nice to venture out the front as there was no wind, but not so nice out the back because it was a bit breezy out there.
Went out in the car and needed the demister, wipers and heater, but driving along wearing the sunglasses.

One of our country towns, Ballarat, had 8C yesterday as their top, today Orange had only 4C and snow.  Adelaide is averaging 14/15C during the day and 4/6C during the night.  While waiting for my morning bus I get to see some beautiful skyscapes.  We don't wear the same winter clothes/jackets etc as you do in England,  but just about everyone is wearing a scarf and gloves at the moment.

Much better day - sunshine and a breeze keeping the clouds away. (Has anyone else noticed what a boring load of topics are on site at the moment?)

Moh, nothing bores me except bad behaviour! The weather isn't boring at the moment, glass is up and down like a yo-yo and we have beautiful skies and clods with accasional showers. Wonderful for the wildlife, gardens and the tress but if I have one gripe it's the unseasonably low temperatures. Heating is on as I speak. Mind you, it's good weather for walking and one or two days have been very clear. Saw the Langdales from Letcliffe yesterday, 35 miles away as the crow flies. Glass going up again, 29.2".

MOH - I've always thought this was the least interesting topic, and so I usually avoid it.  However today the Government have declared a drought  for our area.  The BBC have sent Peter Allen of Radio 5 Live to Royston to cover the topic live.  He lives in our village which is nearby,  so he'll be home early tonight, and after looking out of the window - has a good chance of getting soaked as well.  There is showery rain at the moment from one end of Britain to the other, with a lot more to come over the weekend.  The boss of Anglia Water has just said on TV that all resevoirs are more than 90% full, and ground water supplies are in good nick.  He has guaranteed there will be no hosepipe ban for the region, this year. 

Crisis - what crisis!Smile

I heard the same report and thought what a sensible and clear explanation he gave for the dichotomy between declaring a drought and having adequate supplies of water. As for the topic being boring, we had a discussion about this some time ago and agreed that weather was a non controversial topic that interested many people and in years to come the posts could be a valuable record for climatologists as it doesn't deal in avareges but specific locations.

As for Barlick, today looks like yesterday! glass steady and we will have lovely cloudscapes, intermittent showers and a chilly breeze. Flaming June?

Sounds just like here in Adelaide Stanley. 
We are having a long weekend to celebrate the Queen's birthday.  Yaye ya-hoo
