Not directly weather related, but may have a  seasonal relevance.

Perhaps @Northernlights can comment.

This white stuff has been applied to the former barley field ( harvested 10 days ago or so) on several days over the past week. It blows into my garden.

Lime?

Don"t see much liquid lime being applied in my neck of the woods but know it exists and as this is a liquid tanker it must be assumed that it is liquid lime.Think it acts faster in the soil especially as the soil temperature falls so they will probably plant a crop in this field fairly soon

Got out of bed... Looked out of window... Got back into bed, might just stay here. 

I'm not even under main band of rain either, some of you look as if your beds might be floating by now.

Yep, if I wasn't on top of a hill I think I'd be floating down the Tweed by now!

Please please please Mother Nature bring a set-up like this in winter that's cold enough for all this rain to be snow.

THAT DOG LOOKS LIKE I FEEL.

The other one was even more drookit but he wouldn't pose like Clyde always does.

My old labrador simply wouldnt go outside if it was raining, even had to build him a shelter for him to do his business on a rain day.. snaw on the other hand he would be out all day.

Clyde will go walking in any weather at all but he can hold a pee for about 16 hours so refuses to go out before bedtime if it's even a drizzle. Fergus on the other hand will go outside any time any weather but he's a spaniel so he's insane. They're MrsC's dogs, I don't really like dogs (apart from Clyde lol).

LOL

I ventured outside (the door-step anyway) earlier this morning in the rain. There was a rabbit in the garden. However, even after pointing out to my spaniel, Jess, 'BUNNY' she sort of rolled her eyes and trotted back inside.:oldlaugh:

Disagree with Catch's opinion about spaniels. Jess is an exceptional companion, very sensitive and well-trained - mind you, it drained about 5 years of the owner's patience.

If ever we needed proof that long-term forecasts should be taken with a scoop of salt here are 2 long-term precip forecasts for October. One from the start of September and one recently released:

There will be some fairly chunky gusts across some parts of the north tomorrow, nothing too extreme but enough to demolish a few trees.

That was one very wet night and morning! Cleared through here just after midday.

Lovely rainbow earlier.

Wet and windy week ahead here - Autumn very much in full swing!

Have a good Sunday!

Just relaxing with a glass (or two) of wine after a very wet weekend. My wife has been researching her family tree and dragged me off to West Lothian yesterday to look around graveyards for her ancestors. Got absolutely soaked. She did find one great grandad's grave that she hadn't identified in West Calder who was run over by a train while working as station master there. Turned out he was one of six of her family who were killed by trains and the only one who actually worked on the railways. Another, just a few miles away in Mid Calder decided to take a short cut home from the pub along the rail track but forgot about the late night mail train. Oops. 

Overnighted but as it was still  pishing down this morning crossed to Dysart in Fife where her mum was brought up. Even wetter there so home it was. Took some pics but nothing of weather note.

I'm from Fort William lived here all my life and when someone from Fort William says that's heavy rain you know it would be counted as Biblical event elsewhere, absolutely stotting down big lumps !

Yeah, sun finally put in an appearance this afternoon ?, after a run of wet or at least grey conditions since the end of last week. It's probably not actually any warmer outside, but psychologically it 'feels' warmer cos your looking out at sun rather than miserable grey and rain.

Looks like a bit of a nasty shower appearing here on radar (skies have got pretty dark)

Cool, breezy, sodden underfoot but currently dry with a hint of sunshine. Perfect conditions for some lazy silhouette photography:
