    It's this time of year I like to check the level of insulation in houses as i pass by. Any house with frost still on the roof is good, any with defrosted patches bad. An easy check. Things are looking better now than when I started doing that.

    Sunny. A little bit of wind. Getting colder now. I think it is about 27 or 28 C now.
    Very pleasant, after some incredibly hot and stuffy months!

    I was driving to work this morning and all the farms and fields were covered with a white furry frost. Brown leaves were drifting down, and the sky was a fresh blue.
    And on the radio they were playing Beethoven's 'Moonlight Sonata'.

    'Ahhh,' I thought to myself. 'The world can't be all that bad after all.'

    That idea soon changed once I was at work...

    Bitter cold wind blew through early this afternoon, then the cloud came down and sat like a huge grey duvet over the top of us. It's warmed up, it's now +4˚C and it's raining.
    Typical British weather really.

    Never above freezing all day, went out around 9.30pm, and nearly landed on my posterior. Heavy rain on top of hard frost, not good.

    Got into the work carpark to go home last night and the puddles were all crunchy ice still. 3 or 4 degrees. This morning 4 degrees and frost free. Pretty clear weather too.

    Below zero, roads treacherous. Has there been a change in the composition of Vibram ? Got my old boots on today, and I'm sliding about like a drunk skater. Soles look identical to my more recent boots, but they don't misbehave in the same manner.

    There have always been better rubber for colder conditions i believe but there's some newer winterised rubber on the market these days but sole pattern helps too.

    It's warm here. 6.7˚C and I've got a washing out :)

    After all that crisp whiteness the world's looking awfully drab.

    sunny and about 30°C with a light breeze -- perfect for a beach walk after some gardening for a friend (welcome to the Caribbean :p)

    Grim, grey, damp. I enjoyed that high pressure crispy cold.

    It was very pretty, and it was bright, which is always a pleasure at this back end of the year. That said, I don't miss the nipping hands and ears.

    Its raining and rough like its going out of fashion here.

    Like as not this will continue until May, at least.

    Cornwall is sooo predictable.

    But the good news is, if by some mishap we have a clear day, it will be summery.

    Rug up. Real winter might start this weekend with 30 cm snow and -10C.
    At least the crap brushes off like sugar. I'm ready for it.
    House is warm, dry and full of food and drink.

    We're warm :) and dry. It's nearly 8pm and it's nearly +9˚C outside here. I've put the central heating off, the house is roasting.
