  1. Not the brightest of afternoons to take Finn to his first beach - Nith estuary at Carsethorn. Stopped raining around 13.30 though, so dry. Drive home through Moffat and over the Beef Tubs damp and then sunshine in glorious Upper Tweeddale
  2. Hola Just home from hols in Bilbao. 20-28°C and showery rain every day, but sunshine too. Perfect for me. Speaking of rain, has there been much while I've been away?!!

  5. Saw the radar, grabbed the puppy for a run and some ball throwing around the park and jumped back in the car - and then it started pouring doon. Made it.

      When I was living in Barrhill, I suffered badly from prickly heat rash along with midges bites.  The only thing thing that alleviate the  midge bites was Calamine lotion.

  13. Ticks are the Devil's work for sure. Awful. Cloud. Rain. Cloud. Quite warm. Meh
  14. Unexpected frontal rain now cloudy. (Did I mis-hear/not pay attention to the forecast?)
  15. Had two active developing storms pass eight miles west of me and that very intense one passing over Gala now miss me by eight miles to the east. Electricity went off briefly, but just near misses to report so far.
  16. Same here Ceitidh. The only moisture is the sweat dripping off my nose as I strim the bloody garden!
  17. Two consecutive large cells. CG lightning and biblical rain. Marvelous. Edinburgh not known for the electrical fun.
  18. Thunder in north Edinburgh - huge cell about to pass west of the city over the airport. Too foggy to see any lightning though. Dreich.
