    Up to about 6c, mostly cloudy with some brief shafts of sunshine.

    It’s been grey, cold and damp feeling all day today. The sun had a very brief (really brief - blink and you’d miss it) try at breaking through but didn’t manage to.

    That’s a lot of snow you have there, @CrankyYankee. I hope when it begins to melt you don’t get any flooding.

    I like Potteric Carr @JennyJ, though it’s a year or so since I was last there. OH and I also like to go to the RSPB Old Moor site. Glad you got your washing dry 😊.
  • Yesterday was wonderful. I took my dog to a tiny cove I hadn't visited for many years. The sky was blue, the sea was as clear as crystal and a lovely colour, and not many people were around. The tide had just started going out but my dog is paranoid about going near the water's edge, particularly when it is just on the turn. It seems to be the sound that upsets him. There is a very particular sound to the sea as it turns. As he was 6 years old when I took him on I wonder if he had a bad experience before he came to me. He was so stressed, and couldn't wait to go back to the car. Such a shame as it was quite hot and so peaceful, sitting on the rocks at the foot of the cliffs.

    Cool, breezy, bright spells and the odd shower. I've been out clearing dead stems from the Darmera and other plants in the bog garden. Looks much better already though it will need proper weeding later.
    Channel 4 subtitles last night forecast a 'dastardly wind' for tomorrow. I'm worried now what it might get up to! :D

    Windier than yesterday, cloudy to start with and looked like rain but that didn't happen. Instead we had sunshine for a few hours. Warmer, nearly 12c.

    Your cove sounds idyllic @Joyce Goldenlily, pity your little dog was too stressed to enjoy it.

    Luckily it's normally a very slow process, which is essential for replenishing groundwater and our wells.  Right now I'm just trying to get my outside critters prepared to endure temperatures well below zero F with windchills down to -39F Friday and Saturday.  :#

    That’s fortunate @CrankyYankee, as the last thing you’ll need is flooding. I feel for the poor souls in Auckland, NZ.  Those temps you expect for the weekend are very cold 🥶, and windchill always makes it feel far worse. Although we’ve not got temperatures anything like that near us, and in fact, it’s warmed up quite a bit to about 11 deg C today, the strong wind is making it feel much cooler.
  • It is a grey boring day.
    Yesterday was the same with intermittent showers, splashes of sunshine and a bitterly cold wind.

    Sunny intervals and a moderate breeze from the west temp 12c feels like 11c

    Mainly cloudy and breezy with one or two sunny bits. Chilly in the wind/shade.
