  1. Got back to Blighty on Saturday evening. Can't believe how yellow the grass is here. I remember 1995 but I don't recall anything like this.

    Best and Worst Summers?

    Best - 1995 Worst - 2012
  3. You can if you build a time machine. Czechoslovakia actually broke up in 1993.
  4. Good place to live. Lots of varied things to do (from social stuff to nature) and a good base from which to get to other places. Been to Brno a couple of times. Nice place, especially around the cathedral. Anyway, that was a good storm. It's gone from 32C at 4pm to 20C at 11pm. There was a 5C drop in one hour between 8 & 9pm. I'm hoping the outlook improves because it's currently below-average well into next week.
  5. Been living here for a year and a half now. April and May were very warm. Not so sure about June, but it's normally a warm month anyway. It's definitely been more humid this spring/early summer compared to last year, so there haven't really been many very high temperatures, but we've had a lot of thunderstorms. Speaking of which, there goes the first flash and bang of the evening. The front is nearing. Whereabouts in in non-Slovak Czechoslovakia are you moving to?
  6. Big cold front moving through this evening. Going from a high of 32C today to just 20C tomorrow, and not much warmer over the weekend. I hope it doesn't last too long, but at least I'll get to cool the flat down and there could be some fireworks later on. By the way, I'm coming to Britain in the middle of July so if you're pining for cold, wet weather just wait a few weeks.
  7. Looks like the Balaton Beast is still going. Over western Romania now.
  8. Good light show over Lake Balaton in Hungary: https://www.idokep.hu/webkamera/viharsarok Still quiet here.
  9. There's what looks like an MCS tracking just to my south. Clouded over here and gone dark but it looks like I'll just miss it.
  10. Yet another big thunderstorm here this afternoon/evening with flash flooding. The temperature plummeted from 28C to 17C. I've also managed to cool my room down from 28C to 22C by opening the doors and windows during the storm. That's at least the fifth humdinger so far this year, and it's only early June. I can't remember the last sunny day (and there have been too many to count) without a thunderstorm risk. Plenty of posters on a Slovak weather board are getting fed up now. One person is actually hoping for "western oceanic" rain for a change. Meanwhile east of here in Nitra...
  11. Probably early September 1995 in Liverpool. I normally sleep through thunderstorms but this was haunted house-level stuff. There was flash flooding the following morning.
  12. Summer's definitely gone up a gear in Bratislava this week. Bar one unsettled week and the odd day here and there the days have been summerlike since early April (March was very cold, so we've basically had no spring this year) but the nights were relatively cool. Now it feels more humid and the sticky nights have begun in earnest. Without this fan I bought I'd be screwed.

    Things that tick you off?

    Reminds me of an occasion a few months ago when the woman in front of me had a trolley-load of shopping and proceeded to spend a lifetime bagging them, meaning I had to wait to be served - PUT THEM BACK IN THE DAMN TROLLEY FIRST! Or just use the space to the side instead.

    Things that tick you off?

    Happened again today! Just one person in front of me, but it turned out he hadn't put all of his items on the conveyor belt and proceeded to empty half the shop on top of what was already there. The cashier even asked me to move my items back as much as possible to make room (I just about managed it). She then did the galavanting act with the very first item. Several moons later a receipt longer than the Bayeux Tapestry was finally issued and I got sorted out almost instantly. Had it been a busy time I'd probably still be waiting now.

    Forgot to mention the Hungarian Parliament on the Pest side. Looks grand both close up and from across the river.
