There has been a certain pattern to the weather over the last few days. You wake up to clear blue skies and sunshine. Then by midday it starts to cloud over and by nightfall it rains – well actually it pours down.
When it rains like that, for some inexplicable reason, the lights in the house start to flicker and you hold your breath waiting for a power cut. The last few nights the lights have flickered but the power has stayed on.
The good news is that although it is still cloudy this morning, the chances of heavy rain are a lot less and over the next few days we should see an improvement in the weather. The bad news is that it is getting chillier. From daytime temperatures of mid twenties we will see a drop of a few degrees whilst nighttime temperatures will plummet to around 10 degrees. If you haven't already done so, it is time to get the duvet out!
