  1. No that was Bing Crosby's daughter.
  2. Ken Kercheval, best known for playing Cliff Barnes in Dallas, has died aged 83.
  3. Frustrating because it happened just further east than my location. I wonder if a lot of the lightning was cloud to cloud and high based because I would have thought I have heard louder and more thunder than I did. Struggling to remember if I last heard loud thunder was that 13th of September 2016 storm. Definitely wasn't last year. May have been 2017
  4. A non event here. Very occasional distant thunder, the rain was nothing. It was literally enough to wet the ground. Last decent storm was 13th September 2016

      Looking forward to this, although we a bit disappointed with the last jedi. Think the best films of the new batch have actually been the standalone ones, rogue one and solo. 

  16. Our region has just had the second wettest March on record and it was all down to the first 17 days of the month.
  17. Previous posts make you think April has been a cold month in recent years, truth is that it hasn't, infact if there is any month that hasn't been so lacking in cold in the last 30 years, you would have to consider April as an example. Two record breakingly Aprils, numerous other mild to warm Aprils. Lets not kid ourselves that April has been a cold weather lovers godsend it has been the opposite. It is 2019, the April 1961-90 average came into existence on 1st May 1990 and yet in all those years, we still have yet to record an April CET that was at least 1.0C below the 1961-90 average.
