weather talk

london 9.38am 6C tuesday 2016 sunny

its always fun to watch the weather. they have been saying we will be getting a cold winter, and i was kind of looking forward to it, as it will be a nice change from the mild winters we have been getting. a white christmas will be rather nice , i think, for a change. 

it was supposed to come down to 1C this morning. the reason being it was a cloudless night and temperatures plunges when there are no clouds. even now it is a cloudless blue sky i see outside my window. but the sun is rising so the temperature is rising as i write. the lowest it got was 4C in the early hours of this morning. so the 1C never did happen. at least where i live. it was lowest 3.8C last night. but looking at the graph i found out that it dipped to 1.8C at about 8am this morning. 

 that is about right, as i can corroborate that it did not feel cold last night. usually when it is about 1C the furniture is cold to the touch. and that is the only sign that it is so cold.

fortunately it never has happened that the air that i breathe out gets  frosted when i am in the flat. if that happens it will be real cold.

well, it is 9.50am now and the temperature has rosed 0.5C allready. i took a look at the charts for last night and saw it came down to 1.8C at  8.13am this morning. how strange i was up at around that time and i did not feel it that cold. just goes to show that if u are inside a flat, even without the heating on, it retains its heat somehow and is never as cold as it is outside.

the inside thermometer, a crude affair distributed by the nhs says 15C – discomfort and risk of respiratory illness. oh, it has just moved up to 18C – comfortable house temperature. so that is allright then. haha. i am saved!!

its a really lovely morning, air feels so crisp and fresh.

the pattern when it was the lowest temperature this morning. did not stay down there that long before the sun shot it up rapidly. it says 99% humidity… i dont feel it though.

Added 10.33am 7.2C saw this article about dolmio pasta sauce. their sales dropped drastically when they issued a warning not to eat their product more than once a week. i dont remember reading of that warning. but it is rather unusual for a company to tell its customers to restrict their eating of their products. i wonder why they dont advertise they will reduce the suger and salt that would be better surely than telling them not to buy. everyone should know that these bottled sauces are full of suger and salt and fat. it used to puzzle me why people buy them and now i see the public have finally got wised to them and stopped buying them. i wonder if they will get wise to curry sauces in bottles … those too are full of suger and salt and fat. but maybe one should not discourage people after all if businesses dont make money the economy will tank. so perhaps ask them to buy them once a week. haha. though it is so easy to make your own curry using curry powder.

but simon buys these various curry sauces, they have fancy names dopiaza, jalfrezi, korma, etc so i suppose it appeals to him, as he knows all these names from buying them at the indian takeaways.
