    Eyes don't lie? Never heard of an optical illusion? Wasn't miles outside leg stump, it was one of those very close ones that was unfortunate for Stokes.

    Drought - Summer - 2018?

    March and April were wet overall as well.
  4. I have been time-lapsing for four years now and this must be the sunniest month I have timelapsed thus far.

      I can't remember many sunnier months...I wonder if it could end up in the top few sunniest months on record in the Manchester area if this continues?

      you two live in a good area for weather, sunniest May on record maybe there?

      Only 9 more hours of sun this month and it'll be the second sunniest month of the last 17 years here, behind only July 2006.

    When will we get a warm sunny month in 2018?

    Still think this?
  7. Infamous? That was a cracking month with thunderstorms too boot. 4th consecutive May that tended to the extreme.1989 was a beauty, 1990 was very good, 1991 is forgotten, it was very dull especially in the east but it was a remarkably dry month and 1992 was another beauty

    Did you know.

    Manchester is going to start looking like a mini Manhattan soon. Already two other skyscrapers are well under construction.

    Spring 2018 - Moans, Ramps, Chat etc

    It's been a very interesting spring and it feels as though it has swung towards the extremes at times. The cold, coldest Spring day on record by absolute measurement and the St Patrick's Day weekend was very cold, it was -1C at midday at Manchester Airport. Then there was the heat, 2nd hottest April in record by absolute measurement. There was a prolong period of sunlessness during early April, now a prolonged period of sunshine during May. For England and Wales, the 8th wettest March on record. Wettest March-April period for England and Wales since 1998. May is turning increasingly into a very dry month now.
  10. There was a slight frost again this morning.

    The decline in thunder days.

    It doesn't look like this May is going to nudge the May figures up.

    England squad for first Test Alastair Cook, Mark Stoneman, Dawid Malan, Joe Root (capt), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Dominic Bess. No Vince despite his double century.

    True, lack of alternatives and his experience has kept him in the team. However, Moeen has done nothing to justify his position, he had a terrible tour with just 5 wickets in 6 Tests from your frontline spinner?! Unfortunately Jack Leach has broken his thumb, so they may turn to Moeen. He had a poor tour with the bat as well, Moeen. Sri Lanka tour is in the autumn and even at this stage I wouldn't pick Moeen for that tour as the main spinner, his touring record is atrocious. Close to not picking him at all, anyway.
