  • No horizontal rain for me, but very wet. Never got the hurricane in my area yesterday and only had some wind and so far today, barely any wind. Just wet, can't wait for the sun to come out again.

    Decent day here with sunshine. Sunday is forecast to be a sunny day with no clouds, won't get the sunscreen out yet, though

    Not a million miles away.


    Very wet this morning but little wind.

  • Cleared up this afternoon but more rain forecast for tonight and tomorrow.


    River Arun at Wisborough Green has burst its banks:

    This river has a system of levees and flood pools to help take the strain.


    Several flood alerts in West Sussex.

  • I don't think the "levees and flood pools" were designed to cope with these amounts of rain, time for a rethink. We need to go back to the old system of fields with cleared ditches to take water away

    Yes it is! It's the other side of London. I could travel to you in almost the same time that it would take me to get to Slough. London is "quite" large.^^


    Lovely sunshine today.

  • White frost this morning, just above zero. Looks like it's time to fleece up the banana palms as the forecast is for several frosty nights this week. They're still green and putting out new leaves though a bit shredded from all the gales.

  • Same here. It will kill off the moss in the lawns which has had a field day with all the rain

  • Same for me. Cars covered in frost, but clear blue skies and the sun extremely bright. Great time at the moment for Star gazing too, actually managed to see a few dozen stars over the last few nights with the clear skies.

    Venus is very bright at the moment just after sunset. Fortunately the light pollution isn't too bad here and you can see the constellation of Orion most nights.
