Oh no, I went with him.  I wasn't even all that surprised - it's why I waited for a nice steep hill, on the basis that he'd run out of puff before, or at least at the same rate as, I did.  And I had him back within a hundred yards.  But today my hands feel like they've been through a mangle.

They never said anything about this in "Wish For A Pony".

Leo sounds a bit stubborn but I get the desire to run free. You must be very spry, Jo.

It was hot here again today. The evenings are cooling down nicely though.

Raining.  Again ;-)

Ah well, there are worse things that could happen.

Cold and dark....

The temps will rise to the single digits next week

Chilly and blowy.  But not enough to bite my nose and redden my ears when I opened the door to bring the milk in half an hour ago.

Yesterday was quite mild in the morning.  I nipped out to put some cardboard in the bin without bothering to put my shirt on and didn't immediately cringe.

It's going to be a warm, rainy Christmas over my way.

Two degrees and cloudy forecast for Monday

Perfect weather for hot Toddy

Sunny and partly cloudy today with a high of two Celsius.. temps will drop to the low negatives Thursday.

This is November weather

We are in the firm grips of El Nino.


Talked to mum, they have no snow in Alberta,much of northern BC remains in a severe drought...

It's gotten cold here. Below freezing at night, and barely above during the day. I'm not a big fan of this winter thing.

Wet, wet, and more wet  Very grey.  It rained all night and seemed to have enjoyed it so much it's still raining, with every sign of carrying on for the rest of the day.  There's quite a wind kicking around too, just to make it a bit inhospitable.  Not particularly cold though.

My bundle of mail which is waiting for a trip to the postbox can wait a little longer.  None of it is 'time critical'.

Days like today I'm glad I'm no longer a postman.  Proper storms and snow or ice were sometimes a 'worthy challenge' to be defied and overcome, but days like today were just 'Yucky'.

Still wet and depressingly grey. Lights went back on at 3 AM.

This is the kind of weather when Leonard Cohen and a razor blade could be a dangerous combination for even normally cheerful folks.

Has it rained more than usual?

I'm only asking as much of western Canada remains in drought conditions.. we had a whopping 1 centimeter of snow fall overnight in Ottawa

Today is sunny for a change

Gyppo

Probably not much more than usual in terms of measured rainfall, but it's just so bloody relentless ;-)

I survived yesterday's blizzard. The Texas low dropped 20 plus centimeters of snow. The poor dog refused to out in the storm


Today is a very warm 5 degrees celsius...

According to the news the British Isles is having a lot of storms, but most of them seem to be avoiding my corner.  A few nights back we had some 60 mph winds, but here it was, mostly, just a few long sustained gusts racing through.  Because of the direction these were being funnelled along the nearby motorway  cutting.  Listening in the comfort of my bed it sounded like a very large and long lorry rumbling by.

I did get up at one point to see what was banging around in my back garden, just in case it was some troublemaker using a rough night to do a spot of thieving.  The outside light revealed my bins, miraculously undisturbed, a collection of empty flowerpots and plastic buckets romping around, plus a garden chair which had swapped sides and was lying apparently exhausted against the fence.

But the damned wind had found a small taped up hole in my motorcycle cover and decided to rip it open a bit more just for the hell of it.  Plastic with ultra-violet degradation gets rather brittle over a few years and more or less explodes when the wind starts to toy with it.

The replacement cover is a much better quality and should last a few years.

As it was raining as well I turned off the light and went back to bed.

In the morning I found that the wind and rain had blasted a whole lot of moss off the roof.

A few other folks in the village had lost fences, or had trees down.
