Someone I work with is half way through a two week holiday. The first week was a cruise in the Caribbean , this week is in Florida. I hope he and his family are ok.

I think your version of the Met Office probably worried they'd be picketed by the Christian fundies for promoting witchcraft.

Today is unseasonably warm... not November-y at all. Upper 70's. Sunny. Light southwesterly breezes. Just right for a nap after lunch. Shame I was at work at the time. :lol:

Oysters are sad - seems to be shaping up to be a bad disease year. :( :( for them, interesting for me. I was really bummed the week I was on the sampling boat - I took out a jar of cocktail sauce, figuring I could augment my lunch with a few on the half-shell, and they shucked out so poorly I was not tempted to eat a single one. :( :(

Tooting my own horn a bit - yesterday I was tasked with doing a Mayer's hematoxylin and eosin stain on 75 slides of oyster tissues, our standard stain. The new histology lab manager asked me if I needed her to give me the protocol sheet. Poor dear, I've stained over 6000 oyster slides plus a slew from other species with MHE over the course of 16 years - I can do an MHE from memory in my sleep with my hands tied behind me blindfolded hanging from my ankles while singing America The Beautiful. :lol:

I think that it's stopped peeing down. But the weather has already taken its toll where I work as a Croydon tram has overturned in a flooded tunnel. :shock:

No snow in Copenhagen, but quite a lot as soon as you cross the bridge to Sweden. Cold and windy on both sides.

Not 'my spot', strictly or even loosely speaking, but there's been a white rainbow spotted in the Scottish Highlands . . .

"Waily, waily waily!! The Gentry are a'comin'!" :shock:

Windy. Really really windy. There has been a great dumping of leaves in my yard. And cold. Threatening to freeze overnight. Time to crawl under the covers with the electric mattress pad...
