It's been raining here ...YAY! Sweet sweet rain.



Last new years it was 33 degrees C at three in the morning, it was hot humid and rainy last night but not as bad as last year.

The bad weather has caused several New Years Eve celebrations to be cancelled...Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool. Seems London is OK at the moment...

I feel your pain Wendy, the wind has ripped off the whole off our fence, and that's several panels as well not just the one. And to make it even worse our neighbours don't seem to be interested in doing anything, and the wind still keeps blowing making any work that is done even harder!! :(

Hey...lucky you....not the weather, but the day off.



Wet and dreary here but mild (ish)....70 mph winds due at the end of the week.



At least the days are drawing out a little.

At least some of the hose pipe bans will be lifted for the summer :-6





A few years ago we had continuous winter rain and underwater 'springs' appeared that hadn't been seen for decades....it was weird.
