    It's been like that here for the past three days too Peter, Lots of rain overnight here & it's filled the greenhouse water butts to the brim. Real breezy today but there's plenty of sunshine through the clouds with a high of 18C today, Ireland has 60mph winds today & I reckon the strong breeze we have here is from that weather front.
    It's blown my Brussels sprout plant over :wow::D

    We've got a bit of drizzle forecast for the next 3 days but not much. However the weather bureau is touting a wetter than average winter. That would certainly be welcome!

    Top today is supposed to be 15C.

    The "breezy" day they forecast yesterday turned into really strong winds and sent garden furniture, wheelie bins flying & caused quite a bit of damage to some plants :mad:

    My broad bean, French bean plants were bent over in the winds & snapped along with some strawberry plants in terracotta pots that were sent flying.

    It's a mixed bag of cloud & sunny spells today with a high of 15C. The winds are forecast to pick up again this afternoon, I hope they're not as strong as yesterday.:frown:

    I had to do a double take of Raiyn's weather until I looked at Minnesota :thumb:

    Wall to wall grey skies with a high of 16C today. Still got the bleddy wind here, it's lashing my strawberry plants about & the strawberries are falling off them :mad: There's nowhere else I can put them out of the way of the snails & slugs.:frown:
    According to the forecast it's the wind is supposed to die down this evening.

    It's getting shopping day here too as the cupboards are looking a bit bare :shock: Yesterday was 'back of the freezer delights' :thumb: We were eating all the stuff that gets pushed to the back of the drawers yesterday. Kebab meat for heavens sake :rolleyes: We cant even remember who bought that rubbish!!!:dunno: It was disgusting even smothered in HP sauce :rofl:

    Yeah, still up here grabbing personal items, locating important papers, etc.
    I bought some of that from the "international" section at the grocery store. Good flavor, but I hate the steak sauce bottle. Impatient, I guess.

    Oh Crikey, a heatwave 15C here today!

    I bought and individually froze some snitzel like slices of beef the other day thinking easy lunchtime steak sangers but it’s a bit chewy! A minute on one, side 30 seconds the other and it’s juicy, but tough! Dunno if it’s worth introducing to a tenderiser but figure that’s probably already happened. Bella?? Here girl.

    I get very sick of sandwiches and anything I can chuck on a bit of toast cooked adds variety to life. It’s not like we have other food options out here!

    Beating us mate as we are expecting 17C and a bit of mist, however that should still mean a nice day.

    Another day with 17 top and currently about 6C.

    If it’s like yesterday then it will suit me fine. Good working weather!

    We’ve got a bit of a high pressure moving over but replaced by a cold front by Monday.

    Looking at 18C today but becoming unsettled.

    Went out to mow the front yard while I’m waiting on the landscaping brownies to arrive, and just as I was about to begin, the rains came. Damn the bad luck.:D
