    Tornado warnings in Middle Tennessee and much of the southeastern US -- in December! I've just come out of my safe place after hearing the nearby tornado siren (a rather terrifying sound) earlier this evening, but nothing severe came through my neighborhood.

    Weston: Glad to hear everything is OK in your area. I'm to the north in Sumner county with Mom for Christmas and all is OK here, however looks like there was some trouble to the southwest of Nashville.

    Sunny today on Christmas (as usual), but a bit colder than usual as well. High of 53 degrees F.

    The good thing is that we've been in severe drought here for 4 years and we've been getting a lot of rain this month, so just have to hope it continues this way.

    In central Lancashire it continues to rain, as it has done for the last two months. Many of you will have seen on news programmes the devastation caused by the recent floods in northern Lancashire and Cumbria to the north of us.

    I just went down to the cellar to get a bottle of wine and noticed that there is a substantial trickle of water out of the base of the cellar wall across the floor, I presume from the saturated subsoil. It would have to rise a foot or two to reach the cellar electrics, but watch this space.

    Walked the dogs today in a T-shirt !! 25th of december. Plants in the garden behave like its may.
    Climate-change is real and I'm afraid we've realy done something terribly wrong to mother earth. (And we are still doing it, myself not excluded)
    Nevertheless, a merry christmass to you all.

    The next door neighbour's back garden is a shallow lake today!
    There is a shallow stream running across our lawn which drains into the new lake.
    No wonder there is a large and growing pool in our cellar...

    14 deg. C here - no jacket required unless it rains. And one single rose still seems to be defiantly in full bloom down at mum's place - ridiculous!

    The extent of my gardening wisdom is to cut the clematis right down before the winter. It then sits dormant till the spring. What is the chopped down clematis doing now? - it's doubled in height through December and seems to be considering budding.

    Fingers crossed for you.

    All the best.

    Here in Norfolk, it's slightly damp. Although it rains a lot - 1 day in 3 - we get very little rain in total - typically below 3" a month, with a yearly average of about 27".
