Good to see some areas getting a bit of a top up today - while this was sort of on the radar (to pardon the pun, especially given the amount of false echoes I saw nearby to start with) it wasn't reall

Sunrise was just an angry blob in the distance this morning:

The breeze has blown stiffly all night here, it may just be me but it seems to have been relentlessly breezy for a while now.

I should zip it really as assuming the flight still goes ok on Friday I'll be waking up here on Tuesday morning 😍

Lovely up there. Nothing like Lake Louise for me today. Just a dull, damp and mild Dundee. 10.7C

edit. Last time I was at Lake Louise it was in June some years ago and the temp was 30C. Ice cream the order of the day. The day before we were in Kananskis at 5C and there were snow and hail showers though not lying as even there they have wet bulbs/baws in June.

Doesn't feel like it's actually stopped raining here for weeks. We picked up our new puppy on Friday and house training has not been fun. I think we've got to the point where he's pretending to pee so he can get back inside out of the rain. The lawn is a mud bath and the cats are sulking. 

@CatchMyDriftgood luck with the move

@101_Northactually seen more than me last year and that was a miserable rain to snow to rain with a quick snowman if i remember correctly. Best of luck CMD i also frequent Canada a lot and love it mainly for Tim Hortons which although in Scotland now it is not quite the same here, less good and way more expensive. 

Models hinting at seasonal weather it would be great for cold and dry to materialise and dry out the dog walking paths, the constant towelling down of the dogs after each walk is getting tedious 😞

Well, it looks like I've bought the farm. Not in the American slang kind of way, thankfully. I mean I've bought a actual agricultural arrangement of arable and animals, or at least a share in one. Saw it yesterday morning, offer in yesterday afternoon, accepted this morning. That's the way to do it. Additionally I now own part of a tractor, a mower, a baler, a Ford Capri (disassembled), three kit cars (disassembled), another land rover (disassembled), two highland coos, sixteen sheeps, twelve chickens, a goat, six ducks, a large workshop and some decent workshop machinery. Quite excited about that.

Temperature 6.2deg.C up from a minimum of 4.3deg.C at 05:54, humidity 97%, no wind, pressure 1011.5hPa rising, currently dry but 0.2mm of rain since midnight and 9.2mm in the last 24 hours, and cloud cover is 7/8.

Farmer MacCloud has a certain ring 🤣

It's a cracker here today, the early cloud has now cleared to perfect blue skies.

I binned the kitchen bins this morning, that's when you know it's getting serious 🤣

Hawsey my  granny belonged Pittenweem, she met my grandad when she worked as a herring lassie, he came from Lowestoft. They got married and settled in Fife and had 9 kids, the youngest was my dad 🙂

Lovely day here too, still and sunny and summery.

That must have been a tough job (the herring lassie and having 9 kids)!

I was thinking Old MacPuffy. Either will do.

In case you find yourself locked away in a packing crate later, I hope you enjoy a good journey tomorrow on the way to having a great time in Canada. All the best for the future.

Temperature is 5.3deg.C up from a minimum of 0.0deg.C at 05:15, humidity is 98%, wind is zero with a maximum gust of 1mph at 00:03, pressure is 1022.5hPa steady and there's been 0.2mm of rain since midnight.
