Steam powered weather forecasts….

July 14th, 2021 | Covid 19

Weather is a Great British obsession, but to be honest, is also the obsession of everyone that works in the agricultural industry. No matter what the crop, the quantity and quality will be determined by the weather. Of course, there are many other factors that determine quality, but if the elements are not working in favour of the producer, then the job becomes doubly difficult.

So far in 2021, we have had sun, but without excessive temperatures – days have been pleasant and nights have been cool. One simple way that I can judge the early morning temperature is in my bathroom! When I have my daily shower with the window open, if the outside air temperature is warm (perhaps high teens °C) then my bathroom remains steam free, but obviously, when there is a chill in the air, I have steam – simple! I have discovered that this small indicator actually works very well, and also helps me decide if I need to wear a sweater or not.

So what about the masks (in today’s photo)? About a week or so ago the Spanish President announced that masks would no longer be compulsory when walking outside (until now this was compulsory, everywhere). A week or so later, I was quite surprised to see that probably about 98% of people are still wearing them – it is rare to see someone without. Of course, I can’t speak for the whole of Spain, but from what I have witnessed locally, the Spanish are remaining very circumspect.
