  1. Gorgeous day out there today, the sun is still plenty strong enough to feel very warm out there, bit cooler in the shade but I'm back to wearing shorts out, won't be doing that after tomorrow though by the looks of it.
  2. Not a fan at all of this windy weather, in fact I hate it so I hope the settled spell arriving early next week is still on, haven't had find to browse the mod thread yet today to see.
  3. Ended up looking out the window just after 11 just to see if the moon was visible and yeah sods law it was.
  4. So the weather decides to really take the mick by giving numerous clear patches around here since around 9pm but it remained cloudy to the south east, god damn it!
  5. So bloody frustrating, we had clear blue skies yesterday evening, right now we have a cloud sheet with no breaks in sight. We're going to have the longest blood moon ever seen this century and the good damn cloud is going to ruin it by the looks of it, unless it becomes more broken in the next hour or so. Sometimes I really hate the weather!
  6. Sods law the long run of cloudless skies had to end today with a total lunar eclipse occurring tonight which by all accounts is going to look spectacular, if you get to see it that is!
  7. No doubt this post was tongue and cheek (enoji is a dead giveaway lol) but can't say I found it amusing, wasps are in serious decline already and if they disappear our ecosystem is in serious trouble, less insects to pollinate will impact food production etc among other impacts, it really wouldn't be a laughing matter if it ever happened for real!
  8. Boohoo, there's just a few months out of the year where real heat is possible and I'd rather not waste those months on cool or average temps, we have all of autumn, winter and spring for cool, cold or average temps. Rain is needed for farmers and wildlife though so I hope we see some of that rare commodity falling from the sky but I also hope we haven't seen the last of the heat this summer. Heat and widespread thunderstorms would be good.
  9. Weather looking prefect on Saturday for the Yeovilton air show, just hope it ain't quite as hot as the last time I went back in 2013 with temps in the mid 30s back then! Oh and they're putting up a big screen for the England match, bit odd going to an airshow and ending up watching a football match I must admit but it's not every day england reach this stage of a world cup though is it!
  10. Let me set you straight there, someone making a comment about struggling wildlife in this on going heatwave is NOT a pointless comment to make & quite frankly I'm bloody disgusted that you think it is! You are correct in that the weather is gonna do what the weather is gonna do and nobody should be made to feel guilty about whatever weather preference they have but I at least hope that every animal lover out there is doing what they can to help their local wildlife while this heat carries on, I know I certainly am, got plenty of food and more importantly, bathing & drinking water, for all the animals that keep visiting my garden.
  11. I love this hot weather except for the fact I have to get up and out on my 7 mile jog before sunrise as I went out much later today having only just got back and Jeez, that heat just sucks the energy right out of you!
  12. What awesome charts being pumped out for next week, bring on the heat, hoping for some cracking storms at some point too, all the storms that were about down here in the south a few weeks back all missed this location.
  13. Just boring old rain here and looking at the radar unless there's more development to the south east of here then the wait for a storm to finally hit this area continues.
  14. Disappointing in terms of storms over night, all the action passed either to the south west or north east of me, oh well, roll on the next chance.
  15. Can see flashes way off in the distance to my south east.
