Dark and miserable

Today's weather here is a huge contrast to yesterday, when we had wall to wall sunshine and temperatures around 30C.

Now we have a thick mist over the island making it so dark we had to switch on the light to read the newspaper.

We went early into Douglas this morning, before the Saturday shoppers came out in force. A breakfast in the coffee shop then a whizz round Boots, Holland & Barrett, M&S then the TT souvenir shop to pick up everything on our list.  Back home in time for lunch and just missed the showers.

Next weekend the main road between here and Douglas will be closed for water main works so we wanted to get it all done before then.

Here is the current view from the breakwater webcam. Hope it perks up again soon as our summer has only lasted two days so far.

  1. This is the only very hot day we are set to get - we haven't seen the sun all week and then this morning it came out inforce. Tomorrow it is set to be ten degrees cooler.

  2. Very strange weather!
    We are having a very cool day to day. But Europe's heatwave is predicated to hit us next. God save us

  3. I would have preferred your weather to ours yesterday ! It was up to 34c here in Harpenden. It just wipes me out!

    1. I know. I am not used to the heat and my poor body can't cope with it.
