    Where has the weather gone 🥲 I fair better in the heat than most so would have been good to run todays race in it.

    Later was meant to be a bbq with friends, think it probably end up a sit down meal

    Moaning all,

    Lovely day yesterday apart from the wind, defiantly my sort of weather.

    Good luck tlw. Today is much cooler and rain this afternoon is forecast so may have to shelter in the pub and watch the rugby, as no four letter word today.
    Let’s hope summer returns soooooon

    Meh cloudy grey less wind.

    Sun made an appearance yesterday at 9.56pm for 2 or 3 mins before slipping below the horizon.
    Which I find strange 'cos the Sun hasn't actually moved for a few billion years [sic*]...

    *Yes, I know we are probably in the Blue shift and the whole solar system is moving so, 'the sun hasn't moved in relation to us'.]

    Right, i'll send that off to SG for editing before final submission.

    Warm here but the sun just disappeared a few minutes ago. New blackout blinds are great, no waking up at stupid o'clock with loads of light coming in any more.

    Hounds have exhausted themselves chasing squirrels, pigeons and each other in the garden, so no need to walk them. Will crack on with a few jobs then maybe a bike ride later on.

    Muggy. Just back from dog walk. Will "ride" in fan assisted air conditioned room. Was boiled alive riding home in 30° yesterday into an annoying headwind. I'll go out on the real bike tomorrow when it's cooler.

    Just back from a bbq with other strange people who like sitting on barren mountain tops talking to strangers on radios.
    Obviously it rained for the BBQ and stopped shortly after.

    Did you sit some distance apart and still chat over radio?

    :smiley: No, but we would have been sat in cars hiding from the rain and doing that if there wasn't a gazebo to shelter under.
