Going outside

This morning at 8:04

We'd decided on a short walk today, but the Met Office forecast was poor. However I took the precaution of employing another technique for checking the weather called "going outside". It's not peer-reviewed, but sometimes worth a go. We finished our walk by about 2pm, when a bit of drizzly rain started.

Okay, so the rain arrived much later than forecast, not a big deal really. But here's a few little tips for the Met Office 

Maybe thirty year climate projections are a little beyond your capabilities.
Maybe it isn't the fact that you have a titchy little £30 million computer.
Maybe it's you.

AKH, you seem to view inclement weather askance, young man. I adore it but we don't get enough of it here - it's usually boringly sunny.

James - young man?

I don't really mind walking in rain because we are equipped for it, but when you wear glasses it can be a nuisance, although heavy rain is better than misty rain in that respect.
