Incredible here during the night and early morning.   Sun's coming out now. A very sudden change.   :thumbsup:

We were riding bikes around Derwent and Ladybower reservoirs recently. They have a long way to go to being full - even after all this rain.

A family whatsapp chat this morning revealed that Brother David (mid-Essex) recorded 192.4mm for October, making it the wettest month for at least 60 years, by more than 30mm. Brother Chris, near Shrewsbury, recorded less than half that. My total, only 15 miles from David, was 160.4mm.

Forecast was "cloudy", so it's pissing down heavens hard today. Well, it might wash the varmers' leavings off the road...
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

65mph on the other side of the country, and higher expected this afternoon. Wondering if I should replace the string I fixed the gutter with last might with a bracket instead. Or wait until tomorrow.

Given the gutter is only 7 foot up, it's probably OK. But I think tomorrow sounds more sensible...

A mixed bag coming up in Leafy Bucks. 50mph winds overnight, mild tomorrow, then 3 nights of (probable) frost, as the forecast is for temps of 2-3C overnight.

Breezy and wet all weekend on the North Downs. The hill is a sheet of leaf chutney with fresh leaf fall on top. I wait for the inevitable vehicular crunch. For some reason, the council street cleaning lorry skipped us the other day.

“Aha” I thought, “at least the mighty rushing rain and canine/feline wind will deter people from going to Mr Sainsbury’s House of Toothy Comestibles, so there will be no queueueueue!”  Natch it is now sunny.  Must recharge my Kindle in antici… … …pation of a long wait.

21°C at 2 pm.  Hell, it was 17° at 7 am; I'd have thought "they" would have managed more than 4 measly degrees by now. Peux mieux faire.

21°C at 2 pm in November in what is still Northern Europe even if it's south of that watery sleeve, is quite impressive.

Yesterday, according to the app on my phone, it was 4C here in Bristol and 10C in Warsaw. It's mad enough that Warsaw should be warmer and doubly mad that it should be 10 degrees in December; it should be around zero and snowing.

Similarly my stepson and his wife had a pleasant cycle in the sunshine in Berlin today, whereas I struggled round 20 miles of near-freezing fog-shrouded Buckinghamshire with painfully cold fingers and toes.  :-\

Aaaand it’s still foggy, that’s 3 solid days so far. And despite the Met Office forecast for it to lift by now, nope, not a sign of it. Plus a new warning in force from 4pm to 11am tomorrow. Hmmm. It’ll take a breeze getting up to shift it.

Ice warning bonged on the motor-car for the first time this winter, claiming 1.5 degrees.

You have things which go bong? I rather imagined you in a dustcoat, goggles and leather hat.

Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

It has been hooching down all day & the forecast says it will carry on overnight. Parts of Liverpool near little rivers such as the Alt are on flood alert.  My friends roof is leaking as well. Time to order that “build your own Ark” kit.
