Another vile week has passed devoid of anything remotely desirable or interesting. Another week of poisonous soul destroying rubbish.

Even the first frosts of the season couldn't yield decent crisp days. Monday degenerated into more hellishly wet horror after a couple of fine hours and Wednesday we didn't even get the couple of hours. Dark gloomy 7C grot by sunrise. This was very noticeable last winter that most of the frosts were so transitory there was no sign by dawn 👎

Yesterday was the first dry day in 11 days but inexplicably the wind continued from a rancid southerly direction when the isobars showed westerlies. Forget snow which most Novembers don't have, and have never had, even here I want to see the wind dominating from the west like it should not the revolting SE quarter.

Utterly repulsive again today. Windy, dull damp and already 10C when I woke up. Drizzle started now 🙄Expecting another complete write-off day as there has been every weekend of this repulsive dead loss month.

Was truly incensed to see this piece of utter nonsense on the BBC website that could only have been written by the odious Metroplitan Elite who exist without even a nodding acquaintance with the real world.

I can assure these obnoxious people that we have not seen anything like a second spring in NE Scotland. We have endured a horrible dead, colourless, bleak, soggy, boggy washout November typical of an autumn month somewhere like Belmullet.

This is the picture that sums up this horror November:

I have never experienced a November with less colour than this. What leaves were remaining fell off green due to the rancid stupidly mild final third of October and I have seen ZERO sign of any spring growth just conditions that are not conducive to any sort of life whatsoever.

P.S. Glad to see, following the forum upgrade, a new emoji to go perfectly with the SE wind 🤮Can see me using that a lot this winter if there isn't a massive switch-around from this grotesque parody of an Irish west coast autumn that we have suffered.

Another poor day with cloud and on-and-off rain throughout. This has been a pretty rank November, here.

It's coming up for midnight and we're less than a week away from the start of the meteorological winter and yet, the temperature here in Edinburgh is still a ridiculously mild (for this time of the year anyway) 12°C which wouldn't be worse than average, even in the middle of summer!!😡

Absolutely pathetic!!😡


The north of Edinburgh, usually always missing out on snow events which occur not just within the rest of Scotland or the UK, but also within the rest of Edinburgh.

Should be grateful for those mild night at times to save on heating costs?  No heating was turn on yesterday due to mild nights helped.

I'm not really looking forward to the upcoming colder weather, but I'll take it for something drier. There's been almost 200mm of rain here this month... and to think three months ago we were talking about a severe drought.

UK technically is not a drought ridden country like you see in Africa nations that get drought for years, high temperatures all year around and full sunshine.  So any time if get very dry months here be at it as by winter it will recover very easily unlike in Africa due to our wet latttude zone.

I don't think that many people think of the UK as a "drought ridden country" as such, even although 1976 was quite exceptional and we have come close to it many times since. Also compare the population per square mile in most African countries to England and Wales, also most parts of Africa is pretty much a desert with a tropical zone in the middle while the UK is a heavily populated country with a maritime-type climate but can still experience water shortages after a sustained period of dry weather.
