7°C, brisk SE, building rain.
Marshside Beach only 1km from my new house. Between here and my place are some brackish lagoons administered by the RSPB.
What a bleak and melancholic day. This panorama shows the empty feel of the beach a few hundred metres from the sea defences.
Heavy snow all day. I’m fizzing for a ride but packing ought to be done.
I’m moving in a month and have a 4 bedroom house to pack by myself.
15°C, milky orange sun.
Is this you Ophelia? I can see a warm milky and oddly orange sun at 11am. Most odd.
2°C, light wind.
Snow in summer term? I always knew it was possible, we’ve had snow in April before. It once closed schools in April too. Today’s snow was only thin, but it’s there. However, it didn’t take tong to melt in the sunshine.
18°C, bright sun.
Holidays are precious, I hate to loose any of them. This one has started with a cold in my head. At least it could be over reasonably quickly. A term-time cold can often last more than two weeks.
14°C, cloudless sky and light wine.
A fine spring day. Large numbers of plants have burst into bloom this week. Warm weather has sped them on and I’ve seen the first bumble bees.
8°C, gales, gusts to 60mph, heavy rain.
Fourth named storm, Doris.

The news is full of storm news. Widespread destruction is expected and the news channels are very excited. They love it really
11°C, endless heavy rain, moderate SW wind.
Certain flooding near here today. This is the third day of heavy rain. Fortunately, the place I am staying in is on a hill.
That red patch is directly overhead. It’s the Met Office grading for ‘danger to life’. Not far from here is low lying flat land that is barely above sea level. Should be able to go out and explore at the end of this afternoon.
14°C, brisk SW and more rain to come.
Warm! Too warm to wear a winter coat. The garden is confused too.
This plant doesn’t seem to suffer from the morning coffee grounds, the pot doesn’t receive rainwater naturally.
6°C, and heavy rain to come.
End of term nears. As usual, we’re all exhausted at work. Mostly Year 11 kids who’ve had weeks of exams. The rest of us are battling with colds, on and off. Perhaps viruses are thriving in this yet weather.
Met office app.
Like a string of massive beads, the storms keep coming. One after another, carried by the dominant south westerly winds that have blown hard for over a month.
In the south, you can see fronts running nearly parallel to the wind direction. Those rain bearing fronts spill their load for long periods, days at a time sometimes.
Daytime temperatures have been good, up to 12°C. Nevertheless, lodger A is running her electric radiator again. She’ll have to chip in a supplement for the bill.
Notice the ancient temperature is 15 in my utility room. I don’t understand the need for additional heating in mild weather.
