Delivering Tomorrow's Weather Today

This is not, as you might think, the Met Office's new mission statement (hat-tip - Janey & Peter) but the happy circumstances I find obtaining in Aberdeenshire. What were supposed to be the torrential rains of today happened yesterday - leaving today bright and dry and perfectly conditioned for the Cairngorms, the mountains of my youthful summers, where I will be spending the next few days. So it's farewell the Tarkovskian experience of walking rain-puddled farm lanes with black dogs in attendance while the barley of August dances across the horizon: the rest of the week will be spent up in the floating islands of sub-Arctic tundra between Aviemore and Braemar. Which means no blogging for a while - you'll have to imagine me striding down the Lairig Ghru. Full report in due course.

I envy you. We here in North Carolina are entering what's sardonically known here as Prime Time: the peak of the hurricane season. Nothing but a TD on the scope right now, but it's still August ....
