Beware the Ides of March: autumn is coming

Happy Ides of March, everyone! (Well, it is here.)

And it's cold too, a whole 10 degrees less than it was last weekend. I hope the summer comes back now the big three-day storm seems to have passed (leaving branches everywhere and all my outdoor pot plants on their sides) because I'm going on holiday tomorrow. Actually, I don't mind if it's not hot, as long as it's dry.

Daylight saving goes off this weekend. I always mourn this as the death knell of summer and herald of the winter of discontent and colds. However they're talking about either extending it to give us a decent serving of longer evenings, or making it permanent, in effect moving the time zone forward an hour because of the energy savings (as the UK did during WW2). I'd be happy with either.

Oh and spunky PC guy brought my work 'puter back yesterday, yay! :-D
