    Hi,

    You're most welcome Micky.

    Good question about the weather; I've stated before I have a constant companion in Blackie my big black cloud always kindly keeping the dust down; amazingly Blackie must have gone on holiday with Hail and Gale for the last two days; I was getting extremely worried about a water shortage after two days without rain but fortunately Blackie returned during last night; as I looked out of the kitchen window first thing this morning everything was soaking wet so all is back to normal; it's the usual black hole as I type but the sun is daring to push through and its not raining.

    I've been so fed up of traipsing about in the wet garden in my safety shoes I've now cut my Wellingtons down to boot height and am now wearing these; I've owned the wellies for many years but never liked them because they rubbed my skinny legs sore; wearing my safety shoes I used to leave a trail of mud across the patio; now I visit the hut in safety shoes but then change to the wellies so Blackie can carry on soaking me but no more mud trails to our rear door; cracked it at last. By the way Micky; I tend to ramble on but the members on here are a forgiving bunch. (y)

    WOW; the sun has just burst through I'd better get my welding helmet out?

    Kind regards, Colin.

    You're lucky to have Blackie back. I'm worry about my water butt supply now.

    Been a lovely day here down south Colin ..and again tomorrow .. I even cut the lawn .. I’m having a new fence and trellis fitted next Wednesday and I have plans to grow Clematis and climbing roses on it , but I won’t start that until April as anything planted at this time of the year will not grow as the ground is cooling down ..but it’s something to look forward to in April[/QUOTE]

    Hi,

    Today turned out fine after all here Micky after a wet start allowing me to dig up more roots in peace.

    Below is our latest forecast for the next five days; please see near bottom; West Yorkshire warning; this is because I live in West Yorkshire with my constant cloud and companion Blackie; I'm sure if Bron and I moved into the middle of a desert there would be a flood. We live very near The Pennines so as also seen below more persistent and heavy rain at times from midnight; looks like another wet start tomorrow. I'm looking forward to global warming but its so far been cancelled for Yorkshire.

    Good luck with your new fence & trellis for next Wednesday. Up here we can expect to still see snow in April.

    Kind regards, Colin.

    UK Overnight
    Very wet and windy in the northwest. Dry overnight elsewhere.

    Heavy rain and strong winds will move from northwest Scotland into southwest Scotland, Northern Ireland, north Wales and northwest England overnight. The rest of England will stay mostly dry and breezy, along with eastern parts of Wales and Scotland.

    Batton down the hatches Colin .. if it gets much worse up there let me know as I have an address of your local soup kitchen and they take Luncheon vouchers ☔️
