A bit warmer.

Smells like rain.

Feels like rain as well. Damp, but not entirely unpleasant. Although, it is the annoying kind of fine rain that is not quite strong enough to need to put the wipers on, but still strong enough that you can't not have them on.

The clouds have come down here in the Loop, so it's a bit like walking around inside one.

Intermittent wipers - one of the best inventions ever.

I was using intermittent, on the lowest setting, and it was still too frequent to the point that it started squeaking, so I just had to flick it on and off manually whenever I felt it was wet enough to warrant it.

Minor pain in the arse, but a pain nonetheless.

Don't know why, but I feel a Rowan Atkinson sketch coming on.

All I'd need is a cup of tea and some Pages from Ceefax while I wait for it to start and that'd be pretty cosy late-80s right there.

When I went to bed it was raining, and when I came out to walk to the train there was this coat of some sort of slippery white stuff everywhere.

Today here we are blessed with the Pest from the West.

Big wind, torrential rain, which is not that unusual, but backed with violent thunderstorms which is very strange for daylight hours and the time of year.

You may be getting the leading edge of whatever cold front just hit us last week, and if so we apologize

They're talking about more snow tonight, and possibly yet more on Sunday. I'm not so worried because it's supposed to be 55 by the middle of next week, but still.
