Drab Doesn't Describe It

Saturday was dull, very dull, it hardly got light all day. We didn't even get a bit of a let up with any brighter spells as the sky gave the appearance that it was about to tip it down with rain at any minute. Strangely enough we had very little rain. It drizzled all morning with a few heavier burst in the afternoon but the whole lot only came to 1.0mm by the end of the day.
As you can see from Saturday’s sunshine charts it hardly managed to add any yellow onto the chart at all. I should be able to report that it was the dullest October day I’ve recorded in the four years my weather station has been recording data but I can't at the moment.
The forecast for the next few days doesn't look like very good gardening weather so I might investigate how I can work out the sunniest and dullest days we've had for each month. I reckon that Saturday will almost certainly turn out to be one of our dullest October days in the last four years.


  1. Oh it was SO wet here today. Raining from about 10.30 until after tea. Not much opportunity to get outside and do anything.

  2. Hi CJ
    We haven't had all that much rain here but it doesn't seem to have dried up for days now. Once it starts to dry up we get more showers. Forecast is more rain until Thursday. Gardening on hold.

  3. I am so glad I sorted alot of the outside jobs a couple of weekends ago. The trouble is I can't get out to plant anything for the winter. Hopefully this weekend will give some respite.
