But am so happy to be heading to the sun tomorrow because this kind of weather truly depresses me. Wish I could take it as philosophically as Graces7. Maybe when I'm older, but not yet.
Thanks... I think! But I am so blessed to be as old as I am when so many I knew and loved are long gone and would love even a wet gale. So I just hunker down and wait it out... no alternative and give thanks to be alive,
No idea what the scene is out there but I can imagine

as unhappy as you re m garden though as south and southwesterly are the worst directions ..south comes roaring down the enclosed drive and smacks the garden right in the face as do the deluges..... all my precious patch is getting a battering and my peas just in flower ..... but it will pass and nothing we can do so knitting and pottering.. almost hail here now.. It is rather invigorating though,,,,

Have a wonderful sunny holiday.. Now that I would not enjoy!

Yesterday was utterly blissful but today out here is an abomination frankly

today's temperatures across Europe are probably a good indication of what it's going to be like over the next few weeks. I'd expect Scandinavia to warm up considerably over the next few weeks too.



Latest ensembles for Dublin showing hints at possibly an improving situation from about the 12th of June with warmer and dryer conditions.

Lads the wind. Great drying is about all can say as so far we have escaped any precip in Meath. Think there is some rain now.
Quietest June bank holiday in forever and not missing out with that weather.
There is a walk for Glendalough on the cards tomorrow. May wrap up.

Different experience here again in North county dublin. Started a bit wet but humid. Then pretty much sunny and warm but with with a breeze all day. Clouded over now but still warm.

No rain
