I went out shopping for my aunt this afternoon just after lunch time, got caught in the rain which was aided by a gale force wind, but no matter, her shopping is done, so I don't have to get up too early tomorrow morning.

I came back home, closed all the doors, including the storm doors, and have been relaxing reading, and surfing around the various forums I'm on.

Sitting in my wee office, which is right at the back of the house, feeling quite content (unusual for me) because I can hear the howling wind coming in off the sea, and blasting the house, the roof and the windows. There's something peaceful about weather like this when you are warm and cosy inside and its awful outside.

Neil is sitting in another room whilst I'm sitting here typing away, he is reading and listening to Classic FM, which I can also hear way back here and it's just a lovely feeling.

I think we should take time every once in a while, maybe even using this thread to find out what the weather is like where everyone is - that always interests me.

I was thinking that it's going to be a long winter, because we all know that from now on the weather up here will get worse, and may still be bad until March or April. I can remember in the 80s we had snow down here as late as April, I remember being stuck in a drift on my way to work, goodness I'll never forget that.

Depending of course, on where you live in Scotland, but certainly where I live which is right next to the sea in Ayr, for anyone who knows Ayr I live facing the Low Green and the shore, believe me when I say, if we get strong winds to gale force, we certainly feel it.

Anyway, if you agree, I thought it would be a nice we thread just out of interest.

It's been a change here this last week, gotten much cooler and there's been quite a bit of rain.
I feel as if it's happened too fast, we've no had any kind of transition and I've been frozen. Dark nights much earlier too.

Oh Catherine that's a funny reply. laugh.gif I love it.

I hate dark nights, don't know what it's like where you are in Toronto but, you know in winter here it's dark at 4 o'clock and if its a dull wet day, it can be lights on long before then.

Mind you, I always love to see snow, so long as I don't have to drive in it, but we don't get hardly any snow down here in the south west, especially in Ayr, Prestwick etc.

I always used to say, that it would be lovely if we could have a white Christmas always, there's just something lovely about that.

Will be checking my lotto numbers shortly - so hope to be a big winner - then again, don't we all LOL.

Catherine is right it has suddenly got colder here winter is fast approaching. Mind you today was really nice ,brisk and sunny here in Georgetown.The tree's are beautiful right now with all the fall colours. Mind you I think we can pack the shorts away for another year, what you think Catherine?Maybe an Indian summer still to come.......
Was listening to the weather channel and Calgary is expecting snow.I wonder how our friends out west are feeling about that.

The rain they promised us, from Wednesday, here in the south west of Germany still hasn't come. Maybe someone thinks Kris and I saw enough of that in Scotland.
I love the dark but a night like tonight is also ok ...
everything bathed in moonlight courtesy of a beautiful big full moon. But give me so dark that you see only a skyfull of stars. And here you can wait till as late as almost nine o'clock for the last bit of daylight to hand over to the night.
The rest of Germany is having its rain of course. Including Berlin.
Poor ol' Ross.

We have your rain here Tee! It's been raining here for the past few days and is cold as well. I don't like the long cold dark nights either and this is just the beginning of the long winter season. It seems Fall has completely been taken over this year and we've gone straight to winter. I hope not!!

Well folks, the snow has arrived!!!! Our ski hill, which is 5 minutes drive from the centre of town was covered this morning, thankfully it hasn't hit our roads yet but it is cold enough for it. A few days ago we were enjoying 20+ degrees and now suddenly this sad.gif I turned on the heat yesterday and today it's into the winter woollies. tongue.gif

Slighty autumnal, with the threat of more rain and gales looming large on a grey leaden horizon.

But all is well, thats normal for here in summer.

Rain is something you badly need in California right now I know. Before we had the rain here recently, it hadn't rained for a while, not the real good heavy stuff you need to keep all the new plants in the garden alive.

Loved your comment Rabbie - that's a good one.

Normal for here in the Summer LOL.

I woke up early this morning, so here I'm sitting in my wee office, I've got the window slightly open and there's a definite change in the air, a hint of winter.

Penny I do believe we are in for a hot summer.


Ah wonder if the weather over here in the west is going to ever get to spring condition's, after 29 rainy days in a row accompanied by icy winds, ... I personally cant wait for it to finally be spring, sure we need the rain, but a few usually normal spring days would be nice.

Carmella I understand what you mean, being inside and feeling content when its raining and blowing a gale outside, I live right next to the beach front too, nice to stand outside and watch the white peaks on the waves roll in, though when the weathers too bad good to be inside looking out.

Thats what I think anyway
