It’s less than a couple of hours, since my emergence from the duvet lair, and already my weather watching activities have noted a variety of conditions which could quite happily fill a week, or even a month.
The bright blue sky, with a sparse sprinkling of sun-splashed white clouds, which greeted my arrival into the world of the awake, swiftly became over laden with a dark grey flotilla. The sun, and a hint of blue, continued to peep through the gathering clouds as a gentle rain shower entered stage left. Not many minutes later, brightness prevailed once more whilst the winds strength fluctuated between whisper and howl.
Things soon got to a stage when it seemed that all I need do was blink and, my re-awakened vision would be greeted by a whole new skyscape. The pristine cerulean sky had been instantly transformed into a slate grey backdrop to a few angry clouds. A lull in the gentle shower suddenly transmogrified into pelting rain; next moment a hint of blue, and the sun once more struggled past the cloud cover.
The squally wind makes its presence felt both audibly and visibly but, I lack the desire to appreciate it in a more tactile way; I remain snugly apparelled behind closed doors. Rain, sleet, and hailstones, have all played their part in the past fifteen minutes display.
It certainly beats watching paint dry!
