    Weather has improved a bit and we have actually seen the sun for an hour or two, the ground however is still very wet and things aren't growing as they should.

    Glad to see your weather is starting to improve, BigBilly but it is a shame about your garden. Hopefully, things will turn around & normal growth will return. Our wetter-than-usual summer affected some of our potted plants.

    Beautiful in Missouri all this week. We had a hot spell last week and when the nicer temps arrive everyone is really thankful.

    My word, not another hailstorm, BigBilly. That does look awful. Do hope there wasn't too much damage done to your wonderful veggie garden.

    Wow BBilly! What's with the hail for 2012? We had our share around here this spring too. Really strange!

    Did your plants show signs of damage?

    When the hail hit my neighborhood was in March and only a few crops had been planted. The coffee cans saved the plants. If hail came now my garden would be hurt badly. I hope mother nature spares us from anymore.

    We are in need of rain but no need of storms and hail! It was windy the other day and really did havoc on some of the taller plants. They seem to bounce back ok.

    Do hope everyone's weather has settled down. As for us, we were lulled into a false sense of security with the wonderful few weeks of summer-like, glorious weather with clear skies & warm temps. It all came to an end when the weather cooled down the other day with a cool southerly wind blowing followed by thunderstorms Monday night & rain yesterday, Tuesday. Winter had arrived & it is still raining. The ground is absolutely sodden & cannot hold any more water. As it is mostly sand-based ground around here, the fact that the rain water isn't draining away as quickly as it usually does, shows just how much water has fallen. The aquifer, which lies under the town, must be full. :O

    Most of the plants survived the hail ok, but the weather for several weeks has been really strange changing from very hot to cold rain and wind. Have had two days of gales and very heavy rain with every water container full.

    Good grief, BigBilly, was I seeing correct?? Was that 47°C??? That temp would have cooked any plants that were in the greenhouse!! Do hope all was well with your plants.

    We have had a mishmash of weather lately, too, with winter arriving quickly after some really gorgeous summery weather. Too much rain as well. Our yard is a quagmire.

    Temp went to over 50 c Joy so you can see why we were starting to panic, the shade cloth helped and all the plants seem to have come through OK.

    That sure was a high temp, BigBilly. Just like outback Australia, which is the reason Aussies will only drink their beer icy-cold. :lol3: So glad your plants were able to cope with it ok.

    Weather here is terrible, rain ,wind and cold.
    Went up to London to watch the Beating of the Retreat at Horse Guards Parade on Thursday, got wet from the waist down , but it was well worth it.
    Relation coming from Australia on 20th so hope it gets better.

    That sure is wet, BigBilly, but glad you enjoyed the Beating of the Retreat. Don't worry about your weather, BB, most of Australia has had plenty of rain recently so a bit of English "Scotch mist" will remind them of Oz. :lol3:

    Is it that time of the year already for you, Glad? Summer has come early for you, eh??

    We seem to have a lull in all our rain as it has been lovely & sunny these past few of days & the forecast is for a week, at least, of more of the same. Hope so, as it is also warmer.

    We are having some lousy weather at the moment. Have just returned from staying in Brisbane, Qld for a couple of days. As it is 220kms north of us, it is usually slightly warmer than it is at here but this time it was the opposite with Brisbane being cooler than it is down here. A maximum of 16°C (61°F) versus our max of 18°C (65°F) :cold:

    Outside it is pouring down rain with a stiff wind blowing. This rain is covering a large area & there was rain, rain, rain for the whole 220km trip down from Brissie.

    but then quickly disappeared , hope it comes back again, felt so much better.

    :lol2: An unusual phenomenon occurred, eh, BigBilly??? Perhaps you should repeat, exactly, the events prior to this strange occurrence & it MAY, just possibly, reappear. :whistle:

    Our wintery weather has disappeared for today as there is a northerly wind blowing from the tropics. The temp at 1.30 pm was 27°C or 80.6°F, feels like 28.4°C or 84°F!!!!! I am still wearing a thick layer of winter clothing as the temp will drop, rapidly, when the sun starts to go down. Still won't be very cold though with a minimum of 15°C or 59°F. Rain was also forecast for today but there is no sign of this happening at the moment.

    Still very wet and cold here but forecast is for better next week, hope so cos the garden is really suffering now.
    Houses just below us got flooded last Saturday and Garden Fete cancelled.

      Current date/time is Sat 22 Jul 2017, 12:42 am
