Sea Air

2nd December10, Newton Links, 2pm

We made it to the beach and it was sunny overhead if a bit threatening out to sea (again). There has been thunder in amongst the snow showers and some of the clouds look very thundery. Apparently, in the summer, humid air gets heated by the warm ground and shoots up high into the sky where it forms thunder clouds that are full of energy and electricity is generated giving lightning. This winter, there is very cold air crossing the North sea and gaining humidity. It's so cold that the sea is relatively warm and the same thing has happened as in the summer. I would know nothing if it wasn't for Radio 4!

Daisy could smell something on the breeze from the direction of the sea. There was, to my feeble senses, nothing to smell and nothing to see. Perhaps there was distant thunder...
