Weather Report..................

It was a lovely bright, though chilly, start to the day in Herts.
So I've jumped in the Moho and moved west, where it's also bright, though chilly, this afternoon:

Can you guess where I'm overnighting?

Say hello to Stuart the Druid for me and stoke up that fire to keep warm,
Have a great mini meet.

Well spotted, Lee.
It's chilling down rapidly right now. Methinks that the weatherperson may have over estimated -2ยฐC as tonight's temperature.

Here by Stonehenge it's been a delight to watch the sun retire for the night:

It was so nice today that we went for a drive to Loch Venachar. We are lucky to live on the Beautiful Island!

Itโ€™s been a lovely sunny day here today but chilly and now itโ€™s a very clear sky and still chilly but very still here near Durham
 


Back at Stonehenge it was strange driving in with a nice warm van and seeing all the cars at Larkhill and the vans on the Drove covered in ice just taken Taya for a pee and the grass is crunchy.
 


We had a chilly night and had to drive up to Sao Bras.. ( auto correct loves this). 600 feet higher and two overcoats colder. Dry and sunny, 17 degrees, eventually, sheltered from a cutting NE breeze.. Cooling down now, heating goin on.

Time for coffee and brandy.
 


Itโ€™s been overcast but dry today, and relatively mild, so we set to and cleaned up the van. 1000 miles of accumlated dirt over Christmas and New Year removed and gleaming again. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
 


Managed a couple of hours, working diligently on the terrace in sunshine, serenaded by a Hoopoo .... noisy great sod !.
The almond blossom is breaking out.
As dusk fell, so did the thermometer. We're indoors, heating on, working just as diligently... finishing the Xmas cake... Yorkshire style, with a lump of strong crumbly cheese.
 


It was minus a lot last night on The Drove and I awoke to a hole in the cloud cover, an example of the local fauna admiring the view from aloft and a thick layer of frost covering the surrounding countryside:

....and fence posts:

Later the local drones went up to join the raptors admiring the view:

It looks as if there'll be cloud cover tonight, which means that there'll be no repeat of the amazing star display that I wondered at last night. This part of Wiltshire has little light pollution compared with Hertfordshire.

Itโ€™s 6 degrees and dry but overcast at present. Rain and wind forecast this evening.
 


It was a couple of degrees warmer on The Drove overnight, most likely due to the fact that Annie had her fire pit warming most of Wiltshire.
So no frost this morning and about 7 degC forecast under today's cloud.
The weather persons are obviously aware of Annie's presence here because they confidently expect temperatures to rise for the weekend.

Dry and overcast this morning but โ€œbalmyโ€ 10 degs!
