How's the weather ?

  • UPDATE - The main upgrade is now finished. The site should now be functioning as normal, I will be making tweaks over the weekend, particularly to look of the site. If you notice something is broken or have any comments please let me know. Many thanks Matt (Lithril)

It's this time of year I like to check the level of insulation in houses as i pass by. Any house with frost still on the roof is good, any with defrosted patches bad. An easy check. Things are looking better now than when I started doing that.

I was driving to work this morning and all the farms and fields were covered with a white furry frost. Brown leaves were drifting down, and the sky was a fresh blue.
And on the radio they were playing Beethoven's 'Moonlight Sonata'.

'Ahhh,' I thought to myself. 'The world can't be all that bad after all.'

That idea soon changed once I was at work...

Bitter cold wind blew through early this afternoon, then the cloud came down and sat like a huge grey duvet over the top of us. It's warmed up, it's now +4˚C and it's raining.
Typical British weather really.

Never above freezing all day, went out around 9.30pm, and nearly landed on my posterior. Heavy rain on top of hard frost, not good.

Got into the work carpark to go home last night and the puddles were all crunchy ice still. 3 or 4 degrees. This morning 4 degrees and frost free. Pretty clear weather too.

Below zero, roads treacherous. Has there been a change in the composition of Vibram ? Got my old boots on today, and I'm sliding about like a drunk skater. Soles look identical to my more recent boots, but they don't misbehave in the same manner.

There have always been better rubber for colder conditions i believe but there's some newer winterised rubber on the market these days but sole pattern helps too.

Its raining and rough like its going out of fashion here.

Like as not this will continue until May, at least.

Cornwall is sooo predictable.

But the good news is, if by some mishap we have a clear day, it will be summery.

Rug up. Real winter might start this weekend with 30 cm snow and -10C.
At least the crap brushes off like sugar. I'm ready for it.
House is warm, dry and full of food and drink.

We're warm :) and dry. It's nearly 8pm and it's nearly +9˚C outside here. I've put the central heating off, the house is roasting.
