Overcast and humid.

All my herbs have died from too much water and the tomatoes didn't fruit.  ???

Still bloody raining ;-)

The birds on the feeder are carrying little umbrellas, and either we had a child in the garden last night or the visiting fox is wearing small Wellies.
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

Thanks to the sun's visit yesterday, the road workers and their noisy machines are back this morning. But if the weatherman's predictions are correct, the rain will be back shortly and the workers will be experiencing more 'rain days' off over the holidays.

I refuse to complain about the rain since we still have lakes that need filling.

Yesterday, it poured so hard that we all stayed inside all day in our pyjamas watching DVDs. Somehow I managed to be the one in the lounge watching age-appropriate movies with my five-year-old, while my miss nearly-three watched Blue's Clues etc on the portable DVD player, and my partner downloaded grown-up programmes on the laptop! Hmmm.

Today, however, was fine and sunny and reminiscent of the Summer we are supposed to be having. The duckpond out the back is still there, though.

I'm sick of rain! 2011 was soooo wet. Can I hope for better in 2012?

I heard there's a La Nina weather pattern hanging around somewhere, and that brings us more rain.

I don't actually mind the humidity, if it isn't actually raining or totally overcast. So long as it stays warm enough to wear my Summer clothes!

It's been the mildest winter I've ever been through here. Lots of gales and rain, one frost and one snow shower.

Grey and 'orrible.

When I woke up the sun was shining, the sky was blue, with just a few fluffy white clouds.  I lay there for a while, basking in the sun coming through the glass, like an old tomcat on a sunny shed roof.

But as soon as I got up the weather took a dramatic turn fopr the worse.  Maybe I should have stayed in bed.  Wonder if I could get a government grant to research this phenomenon?

3:10 pm and I've had to put the lights on in my room because it's so damned gloomy.
