Raining pretty much since yesterday early evening in Roscommon and Leitrim anyway, long and regular showers and some heavier stuff.

Heavy drizzle here in South Tipp. Lovely to hear the water running into the water butts. The rivers still flowing too.

We've had 3.0mm here in Glasnevin in since this morning, 1mm of it in the last hour. The ground looks very wet. It's currently 18.4C.

No kids playing on bouncy castles.
No street drinkers.
No dogs endlessly barking.

For a misanthrope like myself, this is bliss.
Not often I learn a new word these days. This week's challenge will be to use it at least once in office banter.

The quiet is nice but there's something very pleasant about those warm summer evenings where it's 20 odd degrees at 8pm and you can open all the windows and listen to the goings on. Distinct seasons are nice for that reason because you get variety over the course of the year.

Slightly OT but was listening to Kilkenny v Limerick commentary in the car just now and only in Ireland would the conversation about the wet pitch making play difficult turn into a conversation about how the silage crop might be very good in September.
