The weather

How could any blog by an englishman not include the weather? Well, up until now I have been trying to figure out how to ensure that I could quickly and easily record the weather, and perhaps explain a little bit more about my travels.

Using Cricket Moods (I was so excited by the name when I spotted it buried in the depths of a plugin list – I so hoped it has something to do with cricket!) and adapted with a set of weather icons I can now include an update about the weather at the end of each post.

So today I have been mostly painting, and if you had not already guessed it, procrastinating over painting by updating something here. It has been mostly overcast and raining all day, check out the icons at the end of the post…

  1. Can you really describe the weather anywhere on your travels in just 18 icons? You’d better not meet any Eskimo’s, do you know how many types of snow they recognise ;)

  2. UPDATE
    Igloo Igloo added as the first icon that might be required for snow – to cover the 100 plus Eskimo words. Also working on more icons for the 40+ English words that describe frozen water, including “berg”, “frost”, “glacier”, “hail”, “ice”, “slush”, “flurry”, and “sleet”…
