Today's wind is coming from the west. That means that it is damp but it is not cold. I do not need a woolly hat. That is fortunate because my hat has been taken by a cat. The cat won't go out, but the squirrel is still visiting us for seeds. I couldn't see St Agnes Beacon today. It's grey, hidden by rain or fog. The rain is coming from the west - we had to dash home. The farmer is not bothered by rain. He has a cab on his tractor to keep him dry. He is cutting the hedges with a big machine. It's easier nowadays than in the past. A machine is faster than men with cutting billhooks (but it is messier).
