Default What a coincidence!

On the day Brogdale was given the acclaim of being officially the warmest
spot in the UK at 38.5C I was due to give a talk no more than about a
kilometre away from the site. So I arrived early and it is indeed the home
of the National Fruit Collection and they kindly showed me over the now
famous Weather station. I managed to photograph it for Weather eye in quite
good weather conditions before rain began by 16.30hrs. In fact the
approaching front with cirrostratus giving a halo then thickening to
altostratus was text book and was perfect for my talk. At the Centre's
office as I chatted to the lady in charge of the station a large parcel was
delivered addressed from the Met Office- a new screen for them.
The site is quite good surrounded by fruit trees but they are not too
close.The current screen is in quite good decorative order and there was a
Campbell Stokes sunshine recorder. The anemometer was not the correct height
and its readings are not sent to the Met Office.The weather station though
seems to be undermined by rabbit holes and I have a vision one day of the
Screen disappearing out of sight. Anyway Brogdale made it a very enjoyable
visit and I shall be back there in a few weeks time with an apple from an
old tree in my garden that I want them to identify.
It is a short distance from Faversham and is clearly marked on OS maps.

no no Ian, not a coincidence, merely the Omniscience one expects from an
editor. After all weather forecasters with a couple of good forecasts under
their belt never confess to just guessing :-))
