A shock to the system

After some pleasant mild sunny days Friday came as a real shock to the system. Around 08:00 I recorded our strongest gust of wind since I started keeping records (23.0mph). There’s plenty of houses around sheltering my weather station and so I don’t get motorway speeds on my anemometer more your commute to work speeds. Not only was it windy, there was the shock of the temperature too. The maximum of 12.1°C was exactly equal to Thursday’s minimum!

Autumn is definitely here now as my winter onions arrived from Dobies today. Now I need to get a patch dug on the plot and get them planted.
