    It's been a warm, cloudy day today - but now the clouds are tinted by the smoke from a huge fire burning inland of Dunedin.

    It's dry, cold and misty here, with a pale blue sky - I could see around 200m along the local road a short time ago, before the mist obscured details.

    Not too bad here now the wind has gone to the SE. 17 - 30mph and 6 degC. I can live with it - and put the new sheet out to dry. I hate it having to wash new bedding. Enough with the old stuff.

    Sorry to hear this. I'm hearing the news about the fire. Sounds bad, with your recent drought too.

    Chucking it down again. Weather radar shows an edge to the rain heading this way.
    Normally I'd be doing my weekly shoping this morning, but I'm holding off till the afternoon. Got a batch of dough prooving in the airing cupboard, by the time the loaf is baked it should be dry enough to go out.
    Yes, I could brave the weather, but if I don't have to, then why?

    Gloriously sunny here, but colder than Maggie Thatcher's heart.

    I thought that you thought she didn't have one. :confused:

    Oh she had one alright. Stole it from the child of a miner when she realised her own had given out. Then did a special ceremony to get the devil to animate it for her.

    Bloody freezing down here!

    At 3am this morning I woke up needing the loo and when I got back into bed it was so cold I dragged out a couple of my quilts to go on top of what I already had on.

    Woke up again at 7, nice and warm stuck my head out from under the covers and thought "F**K THIS!" and went back under the covers until 9.30 and even then I made my coffee and toast and headed back to bed.

    Now I am someone who generally doesn't feel the cold that much. When I worked at Marys I was told "We had a consultants meeting and George walked in and said "It's so cold on my way here I saw Lesley having a fag and she had her coat on" and apparently the general reaction was "Now that;s what I call cold!"

    But today I have the heating on whereas I usually won't turn it on until much later in the day and I am sitting here fully dressed and thinking about just wearing my dressing gown on top!

    It was -3 here last night it rained ice pellets. This morning everything was covered in a layer of ice.
    The vehicle doors were frozen shut and I had to scrape the ice off of the windows.

    Oh my! That's cold!!
    3 degC here but what wind there is (c10mph) it is from the north. So it feels colder. Will yours warm up? Or is it with you to stay?

    As it should be for the time of year. I intend to harvest my Ashmead's Kernel in the next couple of days. They should ripen better in my garage than on the trees in my garden. I have eaten a few windfalls which had suffered damage and were unsuitable for storage. They are already pretty good but haven't quite got to that critical point of perfection beyond which they decay. The Automnal colour is there; the crispness and sharpness have been there for some time; the sweetness is there; but still lacking is the bouquet. I think that they are going to be early this year. Normally they are perfect for Christmas. This year an Advent fruit I think.

    It will get colder over the next few months -20 or lower in January and February.
