Well - not warm here - persisting down and quite cool, has been persisting since about 11ish this am.
Can you send some of your sunshine and warmth up here to the far far west of Caithness but still in Scotland, please?

and while i think about it, don't get lulled into a false sense of security, it's going to get flipping cold later this week so keep your winter woolies available for a while longer! (it's certainly is a possibility of snow up here too!).:eek:

our kitchen is like a freezer because of no heating in it and the cold weather, so we never kept the milk in the fridge this winter. and yesterday milk dated 23rd April went off! it was too hot hope it doesn't get too warm cos then you can't enjoy it (that's what me and the dogs think anyways):Razz

Its hotter than that at Borgie Glen. The smoke was so bad from that fire
last night, i had to take athsma medication (double dose), which i never do.
Today, i went west of borgie to breathe some fresh air for a few hours,
but alas, again back in the smoke.

Sadly, the fire setters are winning this year in north sutherland. Local councillors are thinking of changing the tourism approach towards calling
april and may the "highland arson months" and inviting arsonists from all over
the world to set fires willy nilly in every heather bank longer than 10 millimeters.

Firemen who don't breathe smoke and live far away agree that the fires should just be left to burn, as when there's no fuel left, they won't have to
work, and all the petrol saved in the fire engines will save carbon.

In other news, the Borgie forest commission is having to pay out millions in
lost carbon credits pre-sold, creating renewed interest in carbon credit
insurance.... what we used to call 'fire breaks' and intelligent fire planning.

If as appears from the al gore film, that temperatures will increase along
with longer dry and wet spells of increasing intensity, then the fires will
only get worse, year on year in to the future.. .and those temperatures
in the intense heat of the borgie forest fire are kicking 700 degrees C,
best keep that level of global warming out of the yard. ;)

Will you lot all stop boasting about the Scottish weather. Here in Southern California it didn't get above about 65F (~18C) all day, and there was a cold wind from the sea late in the afternoon. I had to go and put on a big sweater to weed the garden.
