Let's talk about the weather

This was supposed to be a post for Sunday, but you have to strike while the iron is hot with politics. Who would have thought a week ago that we would have a new Prime Minister.

Nice clouds. Such a cloud appearance means very cold air and it was.

Another afternoon when it was cold, wet, windy, some lightening and included hail. In the morning we cleared the decks of anything to do outdoors and hunkered down for the afternoon and evening.

  1. Those clouds are spectacular.
    Jealous of your rain. We had some predicted and not a drop fell.

    1. We had a bit with the hail a couple of weeks ago EC and a few mil last night, but otherwise, not much.

  2. Very, very rainy in our lovely London today. Summer's over, apparently. Love your clouds.

    Greetings from London.

  3. Let's not :(

    I hate winter. For Sunday brunch, we sat inside the coffee shop at first, then outside when the sun was beautiful, then inside again :(

    1. Hels, Sunday brunch and we were outside too, but unusually for me, in the sun, as the breeze was cool.

  4. We are promised a storm for Wednesday. I hope it brings plenty of rain, but not high winds or hail.

    1. Cro, it does seem terribly dry in France and many other areas too.

  5. Yesterday was the best day of the year for summertime fun. Our temperature was 88 degrees farenheit with soft puffy clouds that kept us from getting too hot.
    The pool water was perfect and we swam and bobbed around for nearly three hours! Savannah swims like a fish and Quinn is so close. By next summer he will be a good little fish.
    As the last days of summer wind down, I am so happy to be here with my grandchildren for the visit.
    Savannah ready 40 pages on her own last night out of the beginner reading book that I gave her. She will be a great little reader in no time.
    Another 80+ degree day today. Will watch the kids in the morning and then back home this afternoon.

    1. Maribeth, a bit warm for me, but great swimming weather. It's so important for children to read, and I am sure you know this already.

    1. Two weeks ago Fen, short burst of hail, and there was only two claps of thunder.

  9. Yup, nice cloud formations all right. But spring is almost there, is it not? Soon there will be scorching heat?

    1. Strayer, magnolias are in bloom and daffodils are up. Our own wattle is flowering, so it must be almost spring. While we have some very hot days over summer, it is rarely a heat wave of sustained endless hot days.
