  1. I was bored at home in Haywards heath with the kids and mrs watching crap on TV, to hot to do anything, so taken a drive down to bexhill, got on a cliff edge and watching a storm our a sea flashing away. Where would be a good spot to go from here? I've never tried chasing a storm before so not sure of where is good round here
  2. Temperature is currently 3.6c in Hayward heath, had some rain so far...
  3. I would be cold set at 16c, my family like it warm. We have a smart thermostat with smart radiator valves fitted in every room, each room can be set at different temperatures via an App on my mobile. and an individual radiator can trigger the boiler to turn on independently. bedrooms are 20c till bed time then 17c during the night. downstairs is 21c at times when people are home, 17c during the night, but back to 21c by 6am That's what its set to 365 days a year, never turned off. That's in a 3 bed-semi, built in 1935, 10 x rads, cavity wall insulation, 8" loft insulation, double glazing and doors. Just checked my EDF app and in last 12 months we used £512 in gas, £42.66 per month, £1.40 per day and thats with 100% gas cooker and the hot water, seems pretty cheap compared with running cars etc
  4. Packing all the Christmas lights outside away today, and I noticed daffodils have pushed through the soil already, no flowers yet but won't be long if this mild weather was to continue. But it's 1st January, so I expect we will get some cold spells soon, even more likely now there has been a SSW event...
  5. No rain here what so ever in haywards heath West Sussex. It's funny how I would like it to now, I don't remember ever thinking that in a summer before. The crazy thing is I can't see any rain in my area for at least 2 weeks yet, got to be a hose pipe ban coming to southeast soon surely? I'm nearly ready for one with my new water butt set up, I got 3 x 1000 litre tanks free from work that were being got rid of as rubbish, I've plumbed them in to the garage and workshop roof, just need rain from a storm to fill the buggers up lol, or I will be filling with a hose night before the ban comes in.
  6. about 8 weeks since any rain here, if you ignore the 6 minutes of rain we had last week that evaporated within 15 minutes. Current temperature in my garden is 28.1c, and still climbing quite fast, probably going to be above 30c yet again, be time to get in my pool after lunch
  7. Lovely day here again in West Sussex, currently 25.3c in the garden and still slowly going up. Could do with some rain really as has been couple of months now I think since we last had any, I'm not looking forward to my water bill as I've been watering my back garden lawn every few days which is 120 foot long so takes a fair bit of water, plus I recently got a above ground pool for the kids to play in, it holds 10,000 litres of water and took 11 hours to fill up with the hose on flat out over night.
  8. Absolutely insane rain in last 10 minutes in haywards heath West Sussex
  9. Lovely day here in haywards heath West Sussex, not a cloud in the sky. Currently 25.7c
  10. Just had a 5 minute shower here in haywards heath West Sussex, been a lovely hot sunny day today with a high temperature of 25.6c Currently 21.4c and has a stormy feeling
  11. amazing the difference in temps within a small area, by 9am this morning it was 15c and sunny most of the day. high of 19.3c, currently its 16.8c Hoping for a storm tonight or over next few days, but I don't get my hopes up as haywards heath often misses out with them going to the sides (i think due to the south downs)
  12. I'm probably a bit crue for thinking this but I want a thunder storm more than i normally do tonight, my teeenage daughter has 2 of her mates staying over, and they are camping in the garden it a tent lol Does look like there is some in the channel about an hour away from here in west Sussex
  13. In my garden in haywards Heath it reached 28.0c at 1:54pm today Currently 24.5c Absolutely amazing weather for April, typical it would be right after the 2 week school holidays

    I expect the USA will strike tonight, with help from UK and France. The UK has RAF planes near by which I think will be used. I don't think Putin will have the balls to shoot down any planes or Ships/Subs from the west, as that would then mean a major attack back from the west, can't see what he would gain from that?
