Free for All Friday No. 90

My region saw heavy thunderstorms and flooding today. Roads became impassible in minutes, and two people were struck by lightning. Of course, this extreme weather got me thinking about weather and Filos. Do you record the weather in your Filo? Do you find it helps you remember a certain day?

I usually only write down when it snows, especially when it's a significant number of inches. I also note any astronomical phenomena to look out for, like a meteor shower or comet. (Unfortunately, I'm a little too far south for the current aurora borealis.)

  1. In the North East right here with ya Nan, and yes I record the weather every day in my Filo, along with my mood (and I think often weather correlates with mood for me).

    Today, for example, said "cloudy, muggy, gross. Afternoon T-storms"

    I too record snow accumulation in winter. It is interesting to look back over the years and see which ones were "snow years" and which were relatively mild.

    When I lived in California I found I stopped recording the weather shortly after I moved there...because it was sunny & gorgeous just about every day!

    As a New Englander, I thought there wasn't much fun in that ; )

  2. I don't typically record the weather, though I'll keep that in mind the next time something really record-breaking happens. I do, however, record restaurants we go to and what we ordered. You wouldn't believe how many arguments we have over what we had where and when.

  3. I record the daily weather in my Moleskine Journal. I actually only started doing so because of the little symbols at the bottom of the page. If Filofax inserts had those, I'd probably record the weather in my Filo. Come to think of it: how insane is that?! LOL

  4. Another northeastener here.... Nan, re your comment I think I saw some of the Aurora Borealis yesterday morning around around 4:30 am as I sipped my coffee listening to the crickets.... As far as recording the weather, no I don't, but I think I might just start. We actually go on vacation two weeks from tomorrow to Kauai for a full week! It's high 80's-low 90's much like here. We booked the trip just two weeks ago so there is so much to do to prepare. As I am making seperate lists for me, boyfriend, 16 year son, my filo is getting a real workout. Now just wondering what to bring filo wise...maybe take a vacation from filo and just bring some note paper and use as a journal as the week format on one page leaves it too small to write anything substantial.

  5. I keep detailed notes on the weather,sky, temp. wind speed and direction, barometric pressure and precipitation totals. At the end of the month I record averages for all and totals. I do this because I have been involved in ranching my entire life, and weather conditions and general observation of nature in general is very important.

    I have a question on paper sizes used in the Filofax. It is my understanding that all the sizes may be cut with minimal waste from A4 sheets, you get 2 A5 sheets from 1 A4, 3 Personal from 1 A4.
    Anybody have any idea on what you can get for Pocket from an A4. A4 is undavailable here so I would have to order it. I want to make some of my own sheets, and I am trying to figure out how to do it without any or very minimal waste. Steve, I thought you might enlighten me on this.

    Thanks in advance for everyone's help and suggestions.

  7. @crofter: A4 should give you 4 Pocket sized pages! An A4 page measures 210 x 297 mm.

  8. I first started recording the weather about 6 weeks ago. For the last 4 weeks, its been the same words everyday.....Overcast dull and cool. And we are right in the middle of Summer here in England.
