Don’t know what the temp here was Thursday morning but I saw a Peacock
butterfly emerge from a shed and fly around the garden, we have some Winter
Honeysuckle and some Heather in bloom so it found some sustenance. A few
bees around as well ,and judging by the racket around the Pond the Frogs
are waking up and getting amorous as well.
Trouble is things wake up too early sometimes and then get caught when we
do get the Feb cold snap.
Another plus for today was we didn’t need to have the heating on till after
9pm and in truth we could have left it off completely .
In the middle of Summer in Wellington New Zealand it was also 17 degrees
yesterday with a light wind but it was from a cold direction, apparently. Oh
and the smoke from Aussieland has reached New Zealand as well today.

I was watching something on TV the other day that showed just how thin
our atmosphere is.
Whilst it may be 300 miles thick, apparently only the first 10 are
really usable and as a percentage of the diameter of the earth (~8000
miles), it's pretty small.
I think if we could see and smell vehicle exhausts like often did in
the old days ... or imagined it as the pee detector dye they suggested
was in swimming pools, many might think more about how often they
drive (or what they drive) or what they burn in the garden.
What goes round comes round?

There's a graphic somewhere on the web that has all the water on
earth gathered up onto a sphere an placed on the surface of the
planet. I think there is one for the atmosphere as well. It really
does show how tiny the volume is that can support any life. As for
humans we can only naturally live (as in find/grow enough food, fuel,
shelter) in the bottom mile and half (8,000') or so of the

Also wary of the end of Feb early March, that is always the coldest
time of year. The days are getting longer and the sun higher but the
overall energy balance is still negative.
