That's the most poetic thing I've ever heard anyone say about Croydon!! Can't say that I ever felt so well disposed to it when I had a Saturday job in the Whitgift Centre as a teenager - mind you I haven't been back there in more years than I care to admit to, so maybe it's improved . . . :wink:

Carole - really hoping you and hubby stay safe during hurricane Joachim! Can you tempt hubby from his hummock with a little something out of Nanny Ogg's Cookbook perhaps? You could throw in a little 'avec' . . . **waggles eyebrows suggestively** :wink: :lol:

It was bright and hazy and so I nicked the opening line to Oh, what a beautiful mornin'. Wouldn't have minded have Mr Jackman to sing it to me....

Gorgeously sunny again, and I have laundry on the line, and remembered to top up the bird feeders. :sunny:

The National Hurricane Center has updated the forecast showing Joaquin staying off the East Coast and arcing off to the northeast*. Pray Om that holds true, because right now Maryland is in the grip of a nasty northeaster and we've already had 6 inches of rain in 3 days, not counting today and it is still bucketing down. With 40 mph wind gusts, too. Might as well be a hurricane, or at least a tropical storm. North Carolina is really getting slammed. Don't need the real deal on top of this, nope, nope, nope. And the poor Bahamians! I think this is day 3 of a Cat 4 hurricane for them. :shock:

Yeep, a tree (and all I have are big ones) just came down in the back 40! The cat and I are seriously disturbed! :shock:

*hope it doesn't make it's way to the UK!

Did you get the hubby off the hummock?*

*I'm sure that's a euphemism somewhere . . . :lol:

Nope. And now that the forecast has changed, he's glued there even tighter - no reason to leave now, is there?

Weather here has finally turned nice. We had some rain but it cooled us off nicely.

I think that depends on the degree and scale of separation :)

It's supposed to be Spring.

After 3 weeks in the UK, where it was a tad chilly but fine, I returned home to Noah's deluge. 15 straight days of rain. :shock: Yesterday we had sunshine and seasonal temperatures (24 C) combined for the first time in weeks. I spent the day outside in shirtsleeves, soaking up the Vitamin D. At 4 pm a front rolled through with pelting rain and wind. Today we have sustained winds at 20-25 knots with gusts to 35. :shock: Trees are now in full leaf, so they are whipping around like crazy. It was 8 C when I got up this morning and we've probably hit the high for today at 13.

This is tiresome....

Are you sure you've left the UK? - that sounds like a normal spring over here :wink:
