Well the computer is all fixed and now running smoothly...don't get me wrong I'm no techie and certainly don't spend my time glued to the thing but I sure do miss it when it's not around!!
The weather this last week has been much more pleasant.
Temperatures on the warm side between 6 and 10 degrees in the day and 2 and 0 at night apart from last night when we did have a bit of a frost.
Not much rain really and much nicer winds at between 3 and 15 m.p.h. with gusts up to 30m.p.h. (and for the area in which I live that's like not having any winds!!)
Although the temperatures have been mild and we have been pretty much wind and rainless we haven't seen much sun. The days are slowly getting longer but so many of them have been heavily overcast i think I am really starting to have some serious sunlight deficiencies. I think this is probably taking it's toll on a lot of pepole as it does everyone this time of year.....I can handle the winter if only we get a few days where the sky is clear and i can feel the sunlight on my face.
The light disappeared over the horizon last night and twilight hit at 5 o'clock...won't be too long now before I am coming home from work in daylight!!
As for the wind damage...I was quite lucky and only lost six panes of greenhouse glass. I think one of them got broke by debris blowing about in the wind and then the others were broken from the wind getting inside and blowing some stuff about. Thankfully someone who dismantled a greenhouse had put the glass down near our allotment container so i didn't have to purchase any new glass as it was free to people who needed it. Overall our allotments fared pretty well in the winds thought one net tunnel looks pretty badly damaged structurally so I hope that repairs for that tenant are easy and not too expensive.
I'm sure there is more to tell but my mind has gone blank so I will leave it for another post!!
