I live is South Wales, UK, what can I say? lol. It is well into autumn and the weather is very changeable. We can have relentless rain for days, sometimes weeks, and then the sun comes out, awesome :)
This time last week it was wet and miserable, for over a week, then on Wednesday, when my daughter got married, the sun shone and the weather was beautiful. The temperature reached just over 20 degrees, which is very unusual for this time of year.
When my daughter first announced her wedding date last year, we weren't sure if it would snow on that day. October is very early for snow here, but it has happened in the past. Each year is different, you never know what to expect and when.
In the UK we have 'day light saving time', which means that the clocks go forward an hour in the spring, and back an hour to GMT in the autumn. We've been used to long summer days, even if not the best weather, when it doesn't get dark till quite late at night. The clocks went back last night to GMT, now it get's dark early, which will be even earlier as the winter months draw in.
I'm not a fan of the dark, cold winter months, with short days and long nights. I like BST (British Summer Time), with it's long days and warmer weather. The only good thing about the winter, is that summer is coming lol.
