Today has a typical British style autumnal day feel about it, that is to say, grey, wet and with that delightfully drab and dreary feel, beautifully refreshing! It is a mild 78F/25C at the moment with an expected high of 82F/28C. The rest of the week is supposed to be wet as well but with highs between 86F/30C and 89F/32C.

Yesterday was a perfect day for breaking out a sweat in the yard until midday, as it was cooler and overcast, and then retiring to the sofa and monging out in front of the telly getting our first gridiron fix of the year while it lashed down outside. Today, will probably follow similar lines but I'll tinker in the single-wide that serves as my mancave, as it's already raining, and then mong out watching the pro's take their turn, including our new local boy, Tom Brady.

Ta, for asking, I might have sounded a trifle more panicked in my post this morning if I thought the weather might have impacted my NFL viewing plans.
We don't suffer flooding to that kind of extent. At this time of year I can't turn the truck around in the yard because my turning spot becomes a large puddle, this year it has been a tad larger, up to forty or fifty feet long as opposed to the twenty of the past two years, and there is a new puddle this year right behind where I park. We will need the standing water in the area to rise by about ten more inches before it crosses the lane and floods our land completely, we'd then need sustained rainfall for it to rise enough to flood the house, drainage here is pretty good despite being off the beaten track.

The rain today has been on more than it has been off but it hasn't been a continuous tropical style deluge.

Hey, there's plenty of guff out in the Atlantic and still rolling off the African coast to keep us all on our toes for the foreseeable future...

Forecast is subject to change, the smoke can make it hard to get an accurate weather forecast, hopefully Tuesday see's clear skies again.

I even put my feet into the warm gulf water in memory of my mum
What a lovely post that was to read. I bet your mum was smiling up there

Typical spring day, 27C max, 13 overnight. All good except I've just seen the first post-winter mozzie. Better hunt down the Aerogard

Not me but it's been responsible for another damp, dreary, humid day with lower temps down this way. Not good for anyone with it plodding along at two miles an hour picking up strength the longer it stays out at sea.

Less smoke, better air quality went from Hazardous to Very unhealthy, but hopefully continues to improve through the week, all dependent on winds of course. But could see the sun a bit today, and a bit of sky, so its not as dense as the previous 2 days.
