Live from Dorset

Last weekend I came across a rather nice blog, Dunstans Blog (who also runs 1976Design), via a link at the CSS Vault. Apart from an appealing clean layout, the site has an addictive feature – a ‘live weather image’ from his house in Dorset. This takes the form of a beautiful atmospheric illustration that gets updated, depending on type of the weather and time of day.

It adds real warmth to the site – its one of those ‘good ideas, well executed’ that I wish I’d thought of first (Then again, the view from my window ain’t quite as pretty). I can’t help looking every few hours to see if the weather is any better in Dorset than Oxfordshire.

(Sorry about the weather obsession – its an British thing).
