COMPARED TO the East Coast of America where they have had up to 1m of snow recently, our tail-end of the same storm was wind and rain this week, and that's on top of some pretty wet weather so far this year.
A WET week and what a wet one it was - with seven consecutive days of recorded rainfall of 49mm in my part of the eastern Borders - although nothing, really, compared to the flooded areas of the Borders and Cumbria.
TEMPERATURES have have had a sudden drop from an almost balmy 17°C two weeks ago to zero and winter arrived with snow and sleet showers, between the rain. This has all added up to make November the second wettest month of the year to date and wetter than in any month of 2014.
IN MY part of the Borders, October had only 32mm, or 1.5 inches of rain, to give a total for the year to date of 440mm (17 inches) of rain, compared to 93mm in October last year and a total to date in 2014 of 538mm.
