Wednesday, April 10, 2013

We have really got a thing about the weather. Take me, for example. When I got home from work this evening, I went to look at the weather forecast. I've been doing this twice a day for six months. This is what the Met Office said for Sunday:



For a moment, I genuinely did not take this in. I sort of thought the forecast for Sunday was part of the page border or something. Then I looked again. Then I went to look at the other weather forecast, the one on guardian.co.uk (always good to get a second opinion and this one's always better) and this is what that one said:



Then I hopped round the sitting-room (still got a sore foot) laughing like a maniac.

Now I'm just off to plan a wonderful walk for Stonecot and me. It will be short, because of my sore foot but we will be looking for spring flowers, fleecy little lambs, warm breezes and blue sky.

You can all look forward to photographs of the glories of the English countryside in spring.

Don't even THINK about mentioning how changeable the weather is this time of year.

    I don't know how to read Celsius, but I'm glad you're happy for the springtime weather. We're having a return to winter here in SE Texas today... and the more returns to winter we have, the happier we'll be when summer hits. (it's never wise to expect real Spring here.)

    I'm a weather watcher too. I think it runs in my family. Have copies of journals from my grandfather (a dairy farmer) and an uncle. They contain daily comments about the weather.

The weather is constantly changing where I currently live. Not so other places. I'm one of the few people who get tired of constant emoticon and blue skies... call me craaaazeee!

Looking forward to your pics!

    I'm looking forward to this blog. I'm afraid I may have to experience Spring vicariously through you because it doesn't look like it's coming here anytime soon.

    Enjoy the Spring weather. The weather here in Iowa is getting better too. I hope your foot gets better. My back feels better when I walk but I have tendonitis in my right ankle that bothers me when I walk. Whats wrong with your foot? Congratulations on your blog post award! emoticon emoticon

  After 29 years in Colorado(21 in a mountain ski town where it has been known to snow on July 4th), I generally just look out the window and go. Forget the forcasts.
