Tewkesbury Weather - Statistically Speaking
John's August 2020 Refelections
The lock-down started on 24 March and, as I reflect on 2 September, we are in Day 194. THS has lost all meetings this half season and we shall not now meet in public until January 2021 at the earliest. In the Autumn, our meetings start on 17 September and will be “virtual by Zoom”. I managed to escape to France on the 2nd and, as Autumn begins, still feel very safe on our woodland campsite SW of Bordeaux, but we accept that we shall be quarantined on return once again in the garden! It has been extremely hot here – over 40oC - but highest temperatures are now down to early 30s. Living close to nature one is aware of the sun’s habits and it is clearly rising later and setting earlier. In the Oldbury, August seems to have been a little disappointing, with a lot of rain and wind. We anticipate having to tame a wild garden during our second lock down.
