Soggy Saturday

Storm Hannah is gently brushing past us and bringing with her some drafty and moist weather.



As usual, travel on and off the island is affected, meaning some disruption for travellers.  It is a pity for those wanting to get across to London for the marathon tomorrow as they have been training hard and it would be a pity for them to miss it.

The wet and windy weather started yesterday.  I was doing my volunteering shift in the Wildlife Trust gift shop and there were noticeably fewer visitors out and about.

Poor P had a fell race yesterday evening when winds were predicted to gust between 40 - 50 miles per hour.  When he arrived home at 8 p.m. he was quite literally soaked to the skin and shivering.  Luckily I had switched on the cental heating earlier as the temperature had dropped to less than 10C.  He stripped off his sodden kit there and then on the kitchen floor and went straight into the bathroom for a long, hot shower.  The things he does for fun!

  1. Your yard looks so beautiful! Cold, wet and windy here too, in New York State. We didn't get snow, but some towns around us did. Unfortunately I've washed and put away the big, warm, fluffy bathrobe I use in the winter to take the dogs out in back of the house. I bought it some years ago and I was always too warm when I wore it in the house, but it is perfect for the private dog pen. I'm resisting getting it out again, but I'm freezing going out in my short nightgown and hoodie sweatshirt in the evenings! Might have to give in!

    1. Ha! I am still wearing my big fluffy bathrobe. It doesn't get replaced until at least May :)

  2. We finally have great weather, so warm, but not too darn hot and now I see most of Europe is back in winter again. Wierd weather.
    Neice and nephew from London went to the beach yesterday but they did'nt manage to get all the way into the sea. It is still freezing. Love this time of the year
