The wettest month

October has surpassed itself, and all the preceding months.  With a total rainfall of 194mm, or more than 7½ inches in real money this has been a difficult month.  The ground is saturated, parts of the garden turn to muddy bog if you dare put a boot near them.

Allegedly, the long-term winter forecast is for a dry and cold period, more like 2009 and 2010 than last year.  We'll see . . .


  1. Seeing it converted into proper measurements really brought it home to me - that is a lot of rain!

    1. Sue, all you have to do is try to walk around here and keep dry feet - that will bring it home to you!!

      At the end of the year I plan to add another column and convert it all into real measurements, which will probably shock all of us :}


Thank you for leaving comments, I love receiving them; sometimes they are the only way I know I am not talking to myself . . . 😊
