25th October - Today's News

Down to -1.4c this morning for my third frost of the month and probably cold enough to argue that any forthcoming warm spell is an 'Indian Summer' - not that any such looks likely with a fairly unsettled spell of weather for the foreseeable future. Hopefully that means more wins on the Walker's Rainfall Challenge - now up to £200 in winnings but should really have been more. It's not been raining in the right places!

Anyway, today just a quick catch-up on the main weekend stories:
