Blood and Thunder

Tonight we were looking forward to either a red lunar eclipse or a spectacular electrical storm. We got neither; just a mass of dark clouds. But one thing we did see was a pileus swelling through the clouds though it had almost gone by the time we found a camera. This storm went over York, where it delivered some enormous hailstones.


Crowd of the Day: Unity Day

A lot of happy people listening to a noisy band.


Run of the Year

The 28 days from 18 June to 15 July gave us our best ever run on the solar panels (including our best ever single day), and we came very close to the mythical 300kWh.



The view from the bar of the Carriageworks where Admin2 watched It’s a Miracle and The Colin Atkins Story; the latter was highly amusing but the former was meh.
