Cold Front - November 16th, 2010

Living on a small plateau, a few hundred feet above the surrounding countryside, we often find ourselves on the boundary between two kinds of weather.

On 13th November a weather front spent the day waving to and fro above our heads...


On the south side of the building it was grey and miserable. Even the birds seem hacked-off.


On the other side, it was a different story. This is a cold front (I think), producing some spectacular skies as it tried to decide which way it was going...



... and a couple of days later, we're having a period of beautiful cold, crisp weather, while 4 miles south of us our local town is still covered in grey clag...


Sometime all you can do with the weather is laugh.

They say in Ireland that if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes.

I sometimes tell our visitors (especially after a week of the depressing grey stuff) that the good news is that in England you are never more than 5 miles from bright sunny weather. The bad news is that it's 5 miles straight up...
