Jan 1, Kanagawa: Coldest day of winter so far. It was -1 at 6AM. Today will be very clear and calm with a high of 7. The sun and low wind make a huge difference.

Jan 1, NR: The rain is now officially giving me the shits - but there's at least another week of wet weather to come - in fact it's meant to ramp up. Been trying for 5 days to get a load of washing dry. The sun comes out - you put it out - then rush off to do some other things - then a squall comes through and catches you out. 2021 must be close to record cool and record wet. Although we haven't had a torrential downpour, if you looked at most days with some rain, we'd have to be close to record territory. Apart from September, when i watered the veggie garden a few times, i've not had to water at all in over a year!

Jan 3, Kanagawa: It was 3C at 5AM and the high today will be 4C... with rain. Coldest day of the winter so far.

Jan 16, NR: Crazy storm struck last night around 1.30am - totally unforecast. It was like being inside a sci-fi film - the amount of lightning was nuts - sometimes you see storms on the horizon and the lightning is almost constantly pulsing - it was like that but i was in it - thought i was about to be transported through a worm-hole at any second. The other thing was the duration. Normally those intense storms are wham-bam affairs but this seemed to go on all night. Thunder is still rumbling away but not so close and rain has stopped. Cut house grass for 5th time about a week ago - it really needed it. Needs it again already. Before last night's storm we've had a few dry days - high 20's to low 30's - warm nights - was still 24C outside when i went to bed. There was supposed to be a week of dry weather but that didn't pan out.

Jan 18, NR: A couple of hot humid days after the weird night storm - no repeat - no rain. Weed-whacked the orange trees - should have done it earlier - they were overgrown - trees have fruit but don't look as healthy as last year. Will add some ferilizer today. Got stung by two wasps - which was the third sting in the last month or so. Recent one was coz they'd built a nest in the mower shed but i didn't notice it so went too close - two 'guards' went for me - one in the chest, the other on the finger. It's a sharp burning sensation - stings for a few minutes - then it's ok - though can still feel the chest one a few days later. Of course nothing compared to tiger-head hornet. Remember after tiger-head sting someone said i'd be immune from catching a cold for two years - wonder if it works with Covid?

Jan 21, Kanagawa: The last few days have been cold, with lows in the low single digits and highs barely hitting 10, but it feels colder than that. Perhaps it's the wind. Today has us at 16-20 kt sustained with gusts at 30.

Jan 22, NR: Fucking rain - this is getting ridiculous. We've gone from the driest hottest year on record to - i'm guessing - certainly hoping - the wettest year on record. I saw some wet years in Syi Jhih but nothing worse than this.
