    Sorry, I really should have mentioned it in one of my posts! I'm in Ramsbottom in Lancashire at the moment.

    Cheers, Jeff

    That's really quite hypnotic.

    Some rain would be welcome to wash this Sahara dust out of the air.
    MO says clear tonight but with all this clag it might as well not be.
    Want to get some more imaging data but not through this junk. Last night was "clear" but only the brightest stars were visible.

    In Milton Keynes, the sky has now changed to a familiar cloudy bright, with very little hint of the reddish tint I photographed earlier. (Actually, it was quite tricky to record - my best result was of my grassed driveway where the reddish tint (using Daylight Sun WB) showed well on normally "neutral" concrete.)

    44mph and gusts.

    OK, it's a bit breezy.

    Sunny and fluffy clouds until about 10" ago, just started to rain as I got in.

    Isn't that better than usual for Ynys Mon? Leastaways, it isn't pithing it down.

    I left work today (the dread Didcot) early feeling shite and spent half an hour at the bus stop trying to work out if the light was weird or if I had hepatitis - it was that sort of sickly yellow-orange, like looking through Donald Trump's skin. Eventually the sun showed as a brooding red disc, very dramatic.

    It's breezy here, which makes me wonder how bad it is in Ireland right now - hope my Dublin namesake is well anchored!

    Haha it wasn't on purpose hence the re edit. I didn't notice the "I" at first

    Phew, that made me look even more twisted than I actually am!

    Wind's only a nice breeze here now and has actually cleared some of the clag out of the air.
    Getting some oxygen data to add to the hydrogen and nitrogen I got yesterday.

    20:50 Prolonged powerful gusts... not a full-blown hoolie yet. The dug was loving it until the rain came on.

    In Belfast. There wasn't much in the way of rain. It was more like a mist. Pretty blowy but it seems to have died down now. Schools all closed today and for some reason, tomorrow.
