Better weather

At last proper British summer weather. Nice breeze and warm today without the vile heat and dreaded humidity.

Usually, by now my local tv anchor would have given up asking the weather girl "any sign of summer yet?" Most years people would be talking about a faint hope of an Indian summer, reluctant to accept the annual disappointment of yet another summer cancelled in favour of horizon to horizon grey overcast and three months of incessant drizzle. For once we have had a summer, don't knock it.

I would like a return to the summers of my childhood, warm and balmy......a happy medium not the extremes we have just had but I doubt that will ever happen now as Global Warming takes hold and just dishes out the extremes of weather we have been having in recent years.

Those summers didn't really exist Phil, it's just selective memory kicking in. Every one remembers long hot summers and cold snowy winters from childhood but if you actually check the stats from your childhood years, the reality is quite different.

Where can I check the stats from 60 to 70 years ago,? I'm sure I'm not mistaken that those many years ago we did have proper seasons but now due to global warming that has all changed or perhaps Global Warming is a figment if our collective mind

I remember getting sunstroke sitting on the kirb outside our pre-fab digging hot molten tar on the road edge with a lolly stick.

If your location is still Myanmar, I'm not surprised.

I am delighted by this as I had to give up on painting both Decks with the Epifanes Multiforte and that was with an early start . Everything else is done however and all I need is a day or two of this welcome change which you describe

I too remember as a small child sitting on the kerb outside our house in the blazing sun. No lolly stick but I remember I was eating my easter egg which was all floppy and melting from the heat. So couldn't have been later in the year than April.

Been raining for most of the last 24 hours, over a inch in the rain gauge.  I blame my neighbour as he put the first coat of paint on his roof.

IT IS NOT GLOBAL WARMING. It's climate change. Global warming is when the CO2 level in the atmosphere increases to a point where global temperatures rise to....................oooooer..........I see your point.🙄
