Does Ms Sorbet know you've neglected to capitalise her name? ;-)

The sky is a uniformly dull grey, but it's surprisingly light and bright underneath this.  Strange effect.

Temp?  Not cold.

Temperature around 33 degrees Celsius (91 Fahrenheit).Of course seeing that it is the holy month of Ramadan no eating or drinking in public during the day.

There's a bright burny thing in the sky.

What does it want from me?

It wants you to go outside and sacrifice your skin on an altar of burning and living flesh.

Apart from that its demands are generally quite reasonable.  Just welcome it each morning, even if it's hiding behind clouds, and lower a flag for it in the evenings.

Cooling down now, time to take a walk to the yacht club (eight in the evening) and down a few cold ones

Left Chester on my bike in sunshine. 20 miles into hilly Wales and the showers refreshed me all the way home.

A few low fluffy clouds about but other than that, nice sunny winters day again.

This can't last.

It's been a delightful medley of opposing weather types here the last few days.

Today was sunny but before that was a few days of the very best rain. It was the sweeping kind of rain, the one that soaks you to the skin in a second, but in a rather unobtrusive manner. Coating everything in moisture, the cobwebs were sparkling, the sea had that incredible rippling quality due to the persistent drizzle.

Night before last I was standing outside enjoying the fresh rain filled air when it decided to pelt it down mercilessly. Utterly incredible, it was the type of rain that makes you believe in monsters and magic, deafening on the rooftops, stinging on the skin. Between the squinting and the shielding of my eyes, I could see the sheets of rain driving into the sea, devastating the sand in pretty craters. Obviously, I got drenched, but it was worth it.

Today was hot and sunny, the sea all calm and apologetic for it's raging before. I sat on the slip after getting some milk and just watched the calm. There were a few fish jumping eagerly up out of the water, then flopping clumsily back in, and I couldn't help but name some of them.

I can't imagine anyone ever being bored by the weather, it's so magical.

I've always pictured drizzles of cotton candy around you, Frogg. :P maybe gummybear hail.

Today felt like autumn snuck in for a peek.
