What happened to the temperature whilst we were away?Posted: January 16, 2016
When we got back to Southampton this morning, I had to scrape a thick layer of ice off our car’s windows and lights before I could drive home, and I had to have the heater set on full for the first fifteen minutes to ensure that our breath didn’t fog the inside of the windows as we drove along.
The air temperature had risen from 1°C at 9.00am in Southampton to 3°C at midday in our part of London … but it has now dropped again, and the frost is already forming on our car.
We had left our central heating on its minimum setting whilst we were away, but even so our house was very cold when we got home, and the heating has been turned up to its highest setting since midday. Some six hours on, and the house is finally beginning to feel reasonably comfortable, but as I suspect that as this is the beginning of a cold spell, it is doubtful that it will be turned down much over the next few days.
By the way, it was a very enjoyable cruise, and I shall be writing a detailed blog about what we did and saw at some time over the next few days.
