We have single figure daytime temps. It's raining, hailstoning and windy. Like February. Fkkn horrible. I despair!

Could be worse though - I could have a huge RIB depreciating under a tarp...

I was sat here (25 miles East of Mollers) in perfect calm, as I was reading the thread the wind went from force 1 to 7! (and no I'm not that slow a reader)
This Rainfall radar - Met Office
is what just happened

um make that gusting to force 8!
and how's that for a confused windmap!

Been in / on the water since first light doing some seine netting (scientific purposes).... had to head in for thermals, wooly bear etc after a few hours.... 3 degrees, wet and cold. Fire lit and whiskey in hand....starting to feel a bit more human!
