    Too early?
    Feels like winter is coming

    Didn't much feel like the advent of winter today, the nor-wester was blowing and it was pretty warm. There are signs that autumn is starting to happen though.

    We had some pretty gnarly fog here in Dunedin - indicative that the sea is still plenty warm.

    Cold mornings and evenings, getting frosty, leaves changing . . .

    Based on no scientific data, I think it will be a very slow start to the ski season this year.

    It's been quite nice and mild really. Good diurnal temps which should help bring out the autumn colour which is starting to pop all over the place. We've had a few really cool mornings but I'm not quite ready for a frost yet, I've still got cherry tomatoes outside and lima beans and apple cucumbers and courgettes going and miraculously (given the rubbish start to summer) I'll even get a few aubergines this year, though they're in the tunnelhouse. Give me a couple of weeks and I'll be ready for a killing frost to come and close it all down.
