I’ve recently updated the solar monitoring app that I built. It started out as a monitoring app for the solar panels and can be seen on this website from the link at the top of the page. The app/plugin currently consists of a couple of pages: The Solar and Battery Overview – which shows the...

A Bugs Eye View

One nice thing about having the garden under control is the fact that whilst feeling ill with Covid I’ve at least been able to sit in the garden without an over-whelming urge to do some work on it. Everything is tidy and doing well so I’ve been able to just sit and chill. It’s not...

Talking of the...

Volcanic Perturbations from Tonga in Ynyslas

No doubt you have seen the various news reports of the massive volcano that erupted near Tonga over the weekend. The eruption was likely the biggest recorded anywhere on the planet in more than 30 years. Dramatic images from space captured the eruption in real time, as a huge plume of ash, gas and steam...

Rain at Last

Cycling, running, kayaking, swimming in crystal clear waters, a walk at RSPB Ynyshir, windsurfing, a Spicery meal and some rain at...

Wide Skies and Tall Clouds

There are some nice big Cumulonimbus clouds out there today. Blue skies in between the downpours and a brisk breeze, but quite mild for December. I picked a sunny interlude for a stroll down to the postbox and then back along the beach. The sunny interlude did mean that there were big clouds all around....

Another weekend in lockdown and things in Ynyslas were pretty much the same as they have been every weekend lately. The beach was looking lovely in the sunny spells. The torrential downpours were impressive in their own right. At one point on Sunday afternoon the Borth & Ynyslas Weather Station was reading a rain rate...
