My daily random ramblings
I didn't know Neil Young worked for the Met Office? May was the driest in 150 years in Ireland. It made up for it since. It's raining here today.
Not that Neil Young!!It's tipping it down here this morning.
He won't have a very good Harvest
Ah but he had a Heart Of Gold whilst Out On The Weekend.
Well at least you didn't have to water the garden!
We are thinking of turning it into a rice paddy.
Like Northsider, I thought we were in for a great summer. All the flowers and vegetables were romping away and I thought we were going to get tomatoes in July for once. They still haven't ripened.
We are growing our tomatoes in pots inside the greenhouse. They have started to ripen this week so they must have had some sun anyway.
I came to the conclusion a couple of years ago that they are no quicker in the greenhouse than they are outside against a warm wall where you don't have to water them as much.
I don't think we have a warm wall.
Northsider and Dick Dunham got there before me with regard to Neil Young. I saw him a few years back at The Echo Arena in Liverpool but he wasn't doing a rain dance.
Well, somebody must have as it hasn't stopped all summer.
Yep, the west of Scotland is the same. Totally pouring down today and by the looks of it its on for the day and most of tomorrow too! It's very depressing and will be a long winter if we don't get some let up for a while :( x
We seem to share your weather systems - we can see the Mull of Galloway from here!
It took me a while to find the answer but, in fact, we had below average rainfall here in July. That surprised me. I bet it was a lot windier than average though.
Still not much like summer is it?
Just think how green and lush everything will look .... must always find the positives .... I’m a glass half full, positively brimming over kind a gal ! Sorry to tell you this but we are in for a heatwave this week ! XXXX
It is certainly lush here. Positively squelching xxx
Is that a wave coming over the fence in that picture, or does your rain really arrive in skipfuls at a time?
Sometimes it feels that way!
So sorry you are getting all the rain, hardly any here in the Eastern bit of England and another hot few days ahead too
It has been a real northwest/southeast divide so far this summer and not much change to come yet.
Yes, it has rained here too. Garden needed it so am quite happy.
I think we have had a little too much of it this past month. It would be good to see some sun.
Commiserating with you - can't say we don't need the rain but it can be a bit much at times and one does so long for a bit of sun!
Especially when this seems to have dragged on for so long
So sorry you're summer has been bleak. Never mind, you'll soon be in Guernsey. Hang on, I'll soon be in the IoM too 😱. Please start dancing to the Sun Gods!Hugs, x.
I don't think they are listening!
Hey, you took all our rain!! Give it back. Not fair!!
Here ... you have it all... no, I insist!!!!
If it makes you feel any better, we got 153mm of rain from 11 pm Monday night until 10 am Tuesday morning. Courtesy of the tropical storm in the US. The fact that earlier Monday afternoon, before the storm hit, we already had 50 mm of rain made it a bit of a disaster. Drying out a bit today, but another 25mm of rain due tomorrow. Sigh. Weather is a bit of a hazard these days--no matter where you live. Hope Guernsey has fair weather when you visit.
Sorry to hear about your storms.I am really hoping that Guernsey stays dry and warm, at least for the next few weeks.I am growing webbed feet!
