Gloomy August

Our meterological Office has just announced that this August was the gloomiest August in records - hardly any sun. Hardly any outside fun at all this year. We did have a good day on on hols - we went to Brimham Rocks where the erosion has caused some wonderful shapes.

the last two weeks of august were also gloomy and overcast a lot. looks like fall to me. but then again we have had no major heat spells. that means less fire hazard. babe

We didn't have a summer. It's been spring and fall all year.

Sorry so gloomy, mm. August wasn't pleasant here either. When the sun was out, it was a heat index in the 100s with near 100% humidity. But then Fay came through, and it's been rainy on and off for more than 2 weeks, and the reports are mosqiuto counts are at 100% increase from the norm. And the water is still lying around. Our water tables were 3-4 feet short. But with Fay, they've climbed to 10-12 ft. above normal. That was one good thing.
But enough already!

I think we had one of the prettiest, coolest summers ever. I'm hoping that doesn't mean that we are in for a miserable winter again.
