Rain shower at the marina

Friday 18th October 2019, 3.00pm (day 2,976)

Shower at marina, 18/10/19

Yes, I would rather the box was not there. But one can’t have everything. Otherwise this rain/sun combination did catch my eye as I came home early from work — very early, but then again, it is Friday.

Taking shelter

Sunday 29th September 2019, 1.10pm (day 2,957)

High water, 29/9/19

More rain. The river is high, although I’ve seen it higher. Shelter seemed a sensible option this afternoon.

Rain on the beer tent

Friday 27th September 2019, 4.35pm (day 2,955)

Beer tent rain, 27/9/19

The weather over the last few days has been changeable to say the least, and another drenching on the way back to Victoria was avoided by taking shelter in this large tent that has taken up residency nearby. That it lived up to the promise of the sign was just a bonus. Well, it is the weekend.

Four days in a row in Manchester and as I’m there tomorrow as well for non-work reasons, this may well become only it’s second five-in-a-row stint on the blog.

That’s your summer over

Monday 23rd September 2019, 8.10pm (day 2,951)

Rain at Brighouse, 23/9/19

The weather, so glorious on Friday and Saturday, took a decisive turn for the worse tonight — one I fear will not be retrieved. And my first class of the 19-20 academic year is tomorrow. Definitively, the summer is over.

Day of endless gray

Monday 9th September 2019, 7.00pm (day 2,937)

Grey September day, 9/9/19

The blue skies of the last two days were definitively absent today. The view from the back of the house was the limit of my horizons. Had I not set the monochrome filter you wouldn’t really see a great deal more colour beyond a kind of dull green on the hillside. Happy Mondays.

Rain and shine

Saturday 31st August 2019, 3.45pm (day 2,928)

Rain at the game, 31/8/19

The weather has been some rain, some shine, alternating every half an hour or so, for some time now. I like the way this shot catches the drops and also that charismatic tree in the background.

The rain it raineth

Tuesday 30th July 2019, 6.15pm (day 2,896)

Raindrop, 30/7/19

Since I posted on Thursday and mentioned how hot and sunny it was, we have seemed never to be more than three hours away from the next storm. I sheltered from this evening’s one under the tarp that has been graciously stretched over the beer garden at the Fox and Goose; it is from this covering that this raindrop rather attractively descends.

Back in time

Saturday 27th July 2019, 2.20pm (day 2,893)

Palmerston Park, 27/7/19

The post title has a double meaning. ‘Back in time’ because Palmerston Park in Dumfries is a very old-school football ground, particularly at this, the Terregles Street end. The brickwork! The pylons! I doubt this scene would have looked a great deal different in the 1950s.

‘Back in time’ also because the weather is like February here…. no, come to think of it, February was nicer than this at times. This photo is taken in conditions of around 14ÂșC and teeming rain. The thought that over the last week, the UK might have experienced its hottest ever day, was laughable at this point.

A lenient storm

Thursday 11th July 2019, 4.25pm (day 2,877)

Whitworth Street rain, 11/7/19

Back to work, back to Manchester. Walking home through the city under threatening clouds, strongly suspecting that at any time I was going to get drenched.Here, on Whitworth Street, the rain had begun to fall. But the storm was lenient; just this one shower, then it passed on, to go drench some other part of the world.

Reasons to fly

Tuesday 4th June 2019, 5.10pm (day 2,840)

Wet airport, 4/6/19

Yes, I’m going away again. The North European Monsoon missed out 2018 but it has hit on time, and wetly, this year. I wasn’t the only one here today happy to be heading out somewhere away from it. (No endorsement of airline implied. Other budget providers are available.)
