There’s a change in the weather today and the rain that most of us hoped for is either on its way or falling already.
However, there’s nothing to be alarmed about in the forecast as it holds dry and sunny spells and some wind.

Looking back at my whiskey bottle and jam jar records I see that the prevailing conditions on February 3rd this year looked far more promising and warmer than they do this morning.
