Here's a "you can see for yourself" shot, from way on up in the skies, both day and night time viewing, live action with time sequential stuff
 ( from my regular viewing bookmarks).

Today is the calm before this night's storm. So I'm sucking it all in.

We've had two dry and mild days.  Days when I've sat here in shirtsleeves with the windows open, but tonight the sky is starless, thick with dark black rainclouds.  No sign of it falling yet, but there's a lot of it up there 
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

There's big wind brewing up, and forecast to reach speed of 50 kph across the Netherlands later today (thursday).

Here's the coastal forecast, shipping, for the UK  & north europe area.( often posting the more present situation rather than long range). Good  to know if catching a ferry, preparation brown-paper-bag can be planned in advance, as and when required.

absolutely beautiful the last few days and up to 29° today. To make the most of this the open air swimming pools are opening this morning instead of 2nd May as they usually do. As she who must be obeyed has a lot of french tests to mark over the weekend I will have a stroll up the hill with our lad Kilian and have a first outdoor dip in the pools that have a wonderful view over Vienna......

Rained steadily all last night, but dry now.  I'll swear the new leaves on our hedge have doubled overnight.  A week ago it was still only small buds, now there's a load of small leaves.

It was great last night, tucked up in bed with the window open, listening to the rain falling and occasionally gurgling down the drain pipe.  When it's 'straight down' rain I can have the windows open.  If the wind gets up and bashes it against the glass I wake up and close the windows.

We're enjoying the return of birds...painted buntings, blue buntings, finches of all colors, hummingbirds, etc.  They come up on the deck to drink from the bowls of water, take baths in the birdbath, eat all the food we set out and practice avoiding the cats.  This is the best time of year because the humidity starts crushing our lungs and make us long to be Snowbirds heading  for the coolness of Canada.
