Pouring with rain. You can clearly tell where the squall is on the radar (not that far away from hitting us either)

Just hit us now, with it varying between heavy driven rain and short bursts of torrential driven rain. The dog can wait until later to be walked.

Well that was quite the way to be woken up earlier 🤨😳 it was like a 5-10 min version of the rainfall from 11th August storms 🤣🤣 quite impressive temperature drop in just a few mins as shown by the graph from my weather station 6CBD74C7-70E4-4996-AF67-D502760CDFE1.thumb.png.29cb9693ce5943f2d0bfc1c64560f009.png

@BurntFishTrousers I think you will get some great shots of the storm next week as it nears UK (track still uncertain / remnants of hurricane Epsilon) wrf eu has it at 950hpa 47ED5A63-44C7-40D4-B560-CF932335F765.thumb.png.6089f3db2e64cc186656d43356acae88.png

Well, it must have been very windy last night as part of my anemometer blew away! You know, the important bit that measures the wind speed. I did find it and if all is calm tomorrow I'll try and put it together again. My friend who lives a short distance away and also has a weather station recorded a 60mph gust last night. Sun is now out, in between showers, and I really notice the wind chill today. Anyhoo, an afternoon of knitting and DVD's for me, and keeping the fire stoked up! 🔥

Saturday mornings would be a lost less uncomfortable if they didn't follow Friday nights. Someone organise a rearrangement. Also, was woken this morning with torrential rain battering off the skylight. That won't do either.

Temperature currently 9.9deg.C up from minimum of 6.2deg.C at midnight, humidity is 85%, wind has been between  2 and 18mph today, south to southeasterly, pressure is 990.7hPa, and there's been 11.8mm of rain since midnight with a maximum rate of 64.4mm/hr, which I think is what woke me up.

It has just stopped raining and I really do think it rained all night. Again. Wind has just dropped and sky trying very hard to clear, but I feel that no matter how hard it tries today, the clouds will always win. Bummer. Temp currently 7.4c and Oh Look! It's started raining again! Tomorrow looking a lot better so may get a walk in somewhere during the day. 

On a down note, whilst happily chomping on a fruit pastille yesterday I lost a filling. Not just a bit of it, the whole thing. I now have what I feel is a colossal  gap there and I now have to chew on one side only. Fortunately it doesn't affect my imbibing of red wine, which I am thankful for. May have to contact dentist to see if anything can be done but with the current situation I fear not. Ah well, might have to liquidise all solid grub soon. Imagine, steak pie and tatties and veg in a mushy mess. Boak.

Morning folks! Seems like ages since I was on here! Been moving house. Not far - about 300m 🤣 but looking forward to hopefully posting some snowy pics of the trampoline in a different garden 😂

Not a bad morning this morning after a usable day yesterday. Going to leave the house stuff this morning and head out for a walk and clear the head!

@mistyqueen I have a pal who had to have his jaw wired following an ice hockey injury. He lived on nothing but Guinness for a month. He says he can't remember how much pain he was in, which he sees as a good thing. Enjoy your red wine! Today I'll be heading up to visit my parents for a picnic lunch. Into the valley of deaf.... Wish me luck.

Temperature currently 8.9deg.C up from a minimum of 5.5deg.C at 00:53, humidity is 84%, wind around 4mph south to southeasterly with a max gust of 14mph, pressure is 985.6hPa rising, and there's been 1.0mm of rain since midnight and in the last 24 hours. The sun is out and cloud cover is 5/8.

101 north I might be moving too. Viewing the hoose tomorrow. Much further down, more sun/less snaw. I don't know how to find the altitude - it's the village of Ancrum just north of Jedburgh.

Misty you can buy temporary fillings stuff in boots and DIY it if you get desperate.

A bit of sunshine first thing but as ever the Permagloom™ returned - the blue skies taunting you towards the east....

Thermometer read a max of 9c, but it sure did not feel anything like that in the strong SSW wind.

A brief chink in the cloud cover at dusk allowed the sun to highlight some interesting cloud features towards the east...

Yep, you can tell it was a boring weather day!
