Hi,

A typical Yorkshire day; both Blackie and Gale are enjoying themselves; Blackie has put down the rain he's been saving for the last few weeks whilst his sister Gale is still trying to remove everything from the valley side; I wrapped up well and ventured part way up the mountain early this morning being surprised the bungalow roof was still in position; just two small branches to collect then back indoors after the soaking; I was only out a few minutes but horizontal rain has a good wetting factor. :)

No workshop for me today; I can't be bothered getting more soakings and being blown around; its also quite dark.

Kind regards, Colin.

Good heavens, we had snow! Fortunately it melted off the patio quickly when I let loose with a stream of invective that would set an ice cube on fire. It's cold, wet, and ugly. The cats are not happy, the hens don't much care (they are in their inside coop and have feathers for insulation) and I have to repent for language used when I saw a skiff of snow.
We should be planting peas and lettuce, not looking at nasty white stuff on the ground. At least it is melting now--we are up to 35 degrees. This is NOT the Texas we moved to.

Hi,

The usual black hole here.

I'll have a brew then go up the mountain to attack a few weeds and to tidy up. :)

Kind regards, Colin.

Hi,

Similar day for us too Logan; when I went out first thing this morning I thought the car to be just wet so as usual I started to clean the windows but found the windscreen to be frozen; it was 2C.

49686


I enjoy a good joke; please see above our weather forecast and note no rain? I've posted this just to watch what happens?

A little story; I do our supermarket shopping twice weekly Monday & Friday; last Friday whilst in Morrison's the checkout operator exchanged my five £1 coins for a £5 note; leaving the checkout I slipped the note into my trouser leg pocket; round at Aldi I was surprised to find the note had disappeared; this was annoying because I'd rather give something away than to lose it; I knew then I had dropped the note rather than it going into my pocket. This morning I was once again in Morrison's and I enquired at the customer service counter if a £5 note had been handed in last Friday; WOW it had; I asked if it was an honest customer and were their details recorded because I intended to exchange the £5 for a £10 note as a reward; no it was a member of staff and my offer of the reward was politely declined; when I visit again this Friday I'll ask the checkout operator if she knows who handed the note in and I'll buy a box of chocolates for the staff member. £5 is a lot of money to some people and I'm delighted to see such honesty; I'll also email Morrisons with a huge thank you. It was losing the money rather than its value which upset me; these new £5 notes are incredibly slippy to hold on to. Just a happy story to start a new week and a huge thank you to the person for being so honest. I've shopped at this Morrison's for the last 24 years since it first opened. :):):)

Kind regards, Colin.

Colin that's really good of that member of staff to hand it in.

Really nice day today, sunny and warm and the crocuses are coming out.

Hi,

Thanks Logan; I've emailed Morrisons with my thanks and have already received a reply to say my message is being passed on to the relevant staff member. :)

I've just come indoors after an hour washing the car and the weather has been wonderful; nice and warm in the bright sunshine and no sign of my two companions Blackie and Gale.

Kind regards, Colin.

Hi,

Yesterday in #3,590 above the forecast for one day later now today shows a low of 7C and an high of 10C so why were the car roofs covered in frost this morning? :LOL:

The forecasters though got the dates right. I wonder what the difference is between a forecast and a guess?

Kind regards, Colin.

Maybe a forecast is when they know what will happen and sometimes they'll say that they're guessing. Like on Sunday they'll do a 5 day forecast and say that they don't know what will happen for Friday. :)
