We just had the Red Arrows going overhead. Presumably on their way to Lowestoft, judging by their course.
On the other hand, their schedule also notes 'Private Military Event', and I note from other news that the RAF is celebrating 40 years of the Harrier at RAF Wittering.
(Looks at course again.)
OK, they were probably on the run in for a flypast there, with Lowestoft following afterwards.

I'm a member of the ACM - the Association for Computing Machinery. Among other benefits, every month, I receive a nicely printed magazine containing relevant articles.
I just received an email inviting me to read the latest issue online. So I clicked the link, and went to the website, expecting to see a bunch of PDFs or the like.

We've just had a short sudden intense cloudburst, through which some patches of blue sky could still be seen. It's now passed, and some birds are now flying across the town in the distance.
