Heavy rain commenced just after midnight. The day dawns cloudy but with some bright intervals, which lengthen nicely through the morning. Showers do continue, and as the afternoon wears on, the temperature falls to a very meagre 3C. Hailshowers fall after nightfall. Mrs B goes into town during the morning, and in the meanwhile her nephew turns up. I go into town myself, to buy a new computermouse. I have worn out the old one. It was no longer tracking properly. Temperature had gone right down, making it feel cold. Sunset this afternoon was devoid of any colour. Watched Coast on BBC2, about Cornwall and the Scilly isles. Nice program.
