Times change

And how!  Last Friday I was walking across the Downs in shirtsleeves, the temperature 20+.  At Gravesend, about 45 miles away, the temperature reached 25.  Yesterday I dug out my winter coat, cap and gloves to walk the dog. with the temperature down to 6 or 7.  I put the winter duvet on the bed and was thankful I had done so.  This morning there was frost on the lawns, cars and shed roofs and the sky was a clear blue when I opened the curtains.
