It's bizarre in South London. The forecast says 18mph winds with 33 mph gusts, less than 5% chance of rain. A while ago there was a certain thickness of cloud over the sun so that the world looked orange/yellow. I was due to go out for some cardio-vascular exercise about now, but I look out of the window and the whole world is a deep orange/tobacco colour!
Same weird orange light here in Cambridge, so it was probably most of southern England.

Autumn leaves...

I went up into the attic and found a Stradivarius and a Rembrandt.
Unfortunately Stradivarius was a terrible painter and Rembrandt made lousy violins.

The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
And the day is dark and dreary.

My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the mouldering Past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
And the days are dark and dreary.

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.

I am singing the song Autumn Leaves in French-- Feuilles Mortes. The leaves are falling late here. The funny thing about Autumn Leaves is that it seems to have been written by an urban apartment dweller who has never cleaned leaves. "Dead leaves, picked up by the shovel full."

It’s wet-been raining all day, and warm- 50 degrees. I hear you about the leaves Dory. Our trees lost their leaves a couple of weeks ago. And, fortunately for me, the neighbor. Sucked them all up with a leaf blower that will suck them up into a bag. He wants them for compost. So, win-win😜

North London heavy snow and severe transport delays. I'm not sure how to make it to go to work.

Wet and windy, a little snow forecast for later - a very rare thing this near the south coast.

Some snow in London earlier this morning. All gone except for on the car roofs.

Yes, my parents live a mile in from the Solent, and the micro-climatic change is noticeable - I remember ca 1981 there were 4' deep snow drifts on Portsdown hill (just to the north of Portsmouth harbour), but no snow at all where my parents live.

Right now it's 10°C but today it was 15°C and sunny. Here the current view from the roof top of my hotel...do you know where I am?
