*Thursday 18th 45F, 7C, breezy, raining, heavy overcast. Went for an hour and half walk up to the woods. Did a loop through the fire breaks and back by another way. It started raining at half way so my outer clothes were wet. I stayed dry and warm though. It is unusually mild and could hit 10C/50F at midnight tonight when it will also be rather windy. I must make a note not to go out at 12.00! Norway is matching Denmark towards a record warm year. Europe is also expected to set a new warm record. It may be a new record globally but it will be next year before all the data is crunched. I still hope to get out on the trike before steady rain sets in.
