Here Endeth the Sun

Since I arrived back in the UK 5 weeks ago there has been no rain on Lewis. For most of the time the days have been sunny from dawn until dusk. There have been a few exceptions but nothing too serious. As a result of the sun and the fact that for some days now we have had very strong winds the ground had become very dry indeed.

However I made the mistake on Monday and Tuesday of putting the sprinklers on because the plants were showing signs of distress. This so alarmed the weather gods that at about 2pm yesterday afternoon they turned on the heavenly taps and our 5+ week spell without rain ended with a vengeance.

There is something comforting about normality.
