  1. Yes more notable the darker evenings now, first pre 9pm sunsets here, and with cloudy skies this evening it’s already pretty gloomy. Another 4 weeks and will be pre 8pm sunset! Autumn is certainly not far away!
  2. I keep on making an excuse to go out in my work van, with the A/C being recharged a couple of weeks ago……..bliss, need to think up some more excuses lol
  3. Too hot for my liking, still roasting now and that is with all windows open and 2 fans on the go.it wouldn’t be so bad if I had air conditioning and a swimming pool in the garden! Let’s hope it cools down a bit later in the week!
  4. Autumn is the best season in my opinion, plenty going on, beautiful colours on the trees, cooler evenings and mornings, blackberries, chestnuts!, Halloween!, bonfire night. The list is endless. One of my favourite poems by John Keats Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; Conspiring with him how to load and bless With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run; To bend with apples the moss'd cottage-trees, And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core; To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells With a sweet kernel; to set budding more, And still more, later flowers for the bees, Until they think warm days will never cease, For summer has o'er-brimm'd their clammy cells. Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store? Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find Thee sitting careless on a granary floor, Thy hair soft-lifted by the winnowing wind; Or on a half-reap'd furrow sound asleep, Drows'd with the fume of poppies, while thy hook Spares the next swath and all its twined flowers: And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep Steady thy laden head across a brook; Or by a cyder-press, with patient look, Thou watchest the last oozings hours by hours. Where are the songs of spring? Ay, Where are they? Think not of them, thou hast thy music too,— While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day, And touch the stubble-plains with rosy hue; Then in a wailful choir the small gnats mourn Among the river sallows, borne aloft Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies; And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn; Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft The red-breast whistles from a garden-croft; And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.
  5. Whoop, whoop longest day tomorrow! Hallelujah we are about to turn the corner!
  6. Not moaning about it being hot or uncomfortable just the fact I don’t like the long evenings, I suffer from depression and have to take medication, and I find myself more down through the longer days. I know it’s strange, but it is form of reverse SAD. so roll on September!
  7. 4 weeks and we will begin to see the nights draw in again, really can’t wait, these light evenings are horrible! Roll on September/October when it will be dark by 5-6!
  8. Well after going out for supplies earlier with the worry of being snowed in....tonight we are in the Midst of the great blizzard of the Isle of Wight....this will go down in history and definitely one for the record books... Honestly if you look close enough it is snowing very heavily....I am really worried about getting snowed in tonight....
  9. I had better go out for supplies due to drifting snow........ incredible snow here on the Isle of Wight..... we must be due an Red warning soon!
  10. Well I am an optimist and I hope that we have some snow even if it is a slight dusting. Although the realist in me knows that we need a few things to fall in our favour to get a proper taste of winter. come on everyone let’s all be nice to each other....it’s only the weather after all, if we don’t get snow then it will be a shame. There are far worse things going on in the world at the moment and I have a dear friend fighting for their lives with COVID so to be honest be thankful we are healthy and if we get a bit of snow it will be a bonus, this puts everything into perspective.
  11. I think we may well be surprised, we may not have masses at the weekend but think our chances of some battleground snow into next week will be our best shot and potentially significant as well.
  12. As expected just rain on the IOW and now lovely winter sunshine!, Fantastic that some finally had some snow and it puts a big smile on my face looking at all your pictures and videos so please keep them coming.
  13. Looks like we will miss out on the Isle of Wight, but hope the rest of you get lucky! Fingers crossed February will deliver even more widespread for us Southerners! Enjoy the chase everyone!
  14. Think us on the South Coast will just have rain, although excitement is building for early January. I am convinced we will have some snow by winters end!
