East Boldre weather phenomenon

We've lived in East Boldre now for 15 years and I've often marvelled at what I call the East Boldre weather phenomenon. During periods of unsettled weather especially in spring and summer, I spot threatening cloud to the north west over Brockenhurst and around to the north towards Lyndhurst - in fact you can see that it's raining there. Yet here in East Boldre and to the south of us the sky remains bright! And so it is again today. In the past couple of hours I've just driven the 5 miles to Brockenhurst to do some errands. All the while it's been dry here, whilst in Brockenhurst it was, and indeed looks from here as if it still is, pouring with that steady, very wet making kind of rain! Moral of the story: look for your New Forest self catering accommodation here in East Boldre! Currently Bartley Barn is occupied by a couple with their dogs who've come sensibly equipped with coats and wellies - but they're happy that they can enjoy the sunshine on the private terrace of their accommodation! (They were also pleased that our 6 chickens all laid eggs yesterday and I was able to share our spoils for their breakfast!)
