Rain ?

not a huge amount of rain, but it doesn't take much rain for the day to be fairly crap, yesterday was a classic example of that. No real signs of any properly settled and warm weather, we really could do with one last push of heat up from Spain before Autumn really takes hold in October.

Where’s Graces7. I think she’s an elderly lady on a west coast island, posts almost everyday. Haven’t seen her post in a few days, hope she’s ok.

for kindness. blessings and thanks. still here but not very well and caught up in the terrible Dorian situation. so have not been logging in often. heartbreaking.

we are caught up out here in daily gales and deluges. today's version is ramping up now. as in marine warnings. There have been few ferries or post this week, so snugged in with knitting and youtube in winter mode. waiting for the arrival of my turf order from my nearest neighbour. cupboards well stocked. a perfect place and way of life for an old person!

staying offline a while yet but all is as it needs to be here. stay safe and dry .

Miserable morning in Letterkenny, pouring rain and increasingly windy

Nice sunny morning in Glasnevin but a bit cool @ 11.8C. There was 0.4mm rain recorded from earlier this morning.

I found it cold this morning in Dublin. Already needing gloves on the bike. So 2 months this year without cold weather! FFS!

Although cold was beautifully sunny in Dublin on my way to work with little cloud but cloud starting to set in now. Are you in the west, or Mordor as it should be known at this stage?

It has been particularly bleak over the last couple of days with drying as poor as it would be in mid-December, despite the fairly constant breeze. everywhere is saturated. All summer it was humid and unpleasant feeling and now it is just a little cooler but still no less humid. Always tend to associate September with sunny weather with good drying and wildly alternating temps, but that doesn't seem to be happening this time around

Ground is boating here in the south west. We got over 200mm of rain in August.

Things are starting to fly out here; been out to investigate a loud crash. Poor cat nearly abandoned her skin...

Not seen the ocean - just across the back field - so wild and white ruffled for many a while. Northerly direction. High drama out there. Great breakers rolling in.

Managed a short walk earlier before it was as wild as this, berry picking, but would not even try to open the big gate now.

Some brightness but darkening again now.

We have the best internet server in the world; the dish is on the north, ocean facing wall, and never a flicker in all the gales. small local Westnet folk.I salute thee.

Stay safe west coast folk.

The sheer beauty of the west is a well kept secret; more to life here then the weather. Best part of Ireland in every way..
