For what its worth, a neighbour of mine, (who misses nothing) told me to-day (Mon 25th) that she heard a blight warning given out yesterday, Maybe she"s a bit deaf and heard BRIGHT MORNING, I usually rely on the forum for early warnings but, what the hell, I sprayed, to be sure, to be sure.

See I predicted this on an earlier post once the word blight gets mentioned the place lights up I want to be first, so go ahead spray away for the next couple of days, Weather conditions are ideal for blight over the coming week, between Occasional showers, Regular showers, Intermittant showers and stray showers, light showers heavier showers occasional very heavy downpours etc etc and Hurricane Debbie or what ever letter were on at the moment is on its way although well only get the tail end, which will be folowed by heavy outbreaks of rain, Possible thunder, flash flood warning issue,,,, etc etc, Shorter nights clear skys frost, meteprites planet realingment, solar sunbursts and finally more blight.................
