What's the weather like where you are? (2018)

Happy New year to all - hope it's a good growing year weather-wise wherever you are.
Sow your seeds, plant your plants, and plonk your potatoes in the soil.

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older.

Yes - Happy New Year!

I did think I might get to the plot today as when I opened the curtains it looked dry and bright. Yay!

By the time I came downstairs and put the kettle on the sky was dark and it started raining, big fat drops :(
Oh no! it means I'll probably have to tackle the ironing pile before it topples over  :ohmy:

Absolutely hammering it down, rain, hail, sleet.  Need to go up to the garage to get tonight's dinner out but not going out at the moment!  Weather warning in place for the Island and for once it's coming true.

It's dark and dismal, wet and miserable.  :wacko: The fields are filled with pools of water.  :unsure: At least the coming gales will help dry things out!  ???

I love cooking with wine, and sometimes I even add food!

Exactly the same here in the SE, the footpath was flooded earlier on, but it has eased up a bit now. I've had to have the lights on all day cos it's been that dark :(

Cold and wet here today.  :(

Ditto here.  I think we'll escape the worst of the gales, though
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

It's a little damp and breezy here - around 80mph gusts! Started the day by replacing a pane in the greenhouse door that spontaneously shattered. I assume the frame flexed and put pressure on the edge. Nearest glazier is 6 miles, and not cheap :(

Poor chickens - I've made them a sheltered spot in the secure run but the wind can just go through the mesh door. Went out this afternoon to give them some mixed corn and the browns ran to the door. A gust came and one of them took off and was frantically flapping.  Strangely the cats are hardly going outside...

Is this in the script for the next 'Back to the Future' film?  :lol:

(we all know you meant yesterday afternoon, really  :nowink: )
