  1. Thats because Scandinavia has a much larger landmass and heats up quicker in spring and summer and cools more quickly in Autumn and winter...these changes in temps are not tempered by a huge body of water surrounding it like the UK..This is esp true of Sweden and Finland which are shielded by the mountains of Norway.

    one good thing is the club moved quickly to appoint a new manager..now need to sign some half decent players..Jack Butland between the sticks and Johnny Evans would be a solid start.
  7. sunny Edmonton has had a big jump to 14.9c which is nearly 3.5c above normal...another hot week in prospects with heat warnings now in affect until the weekend.
  8. i have full aircon in my house in Edmonton...couldn't live with out it..and actually its not that expensive to install here because we have forced air system in houses ...this is something you dont have in the UK
  9. i have had no spring this year...went straight from winter into summer...near record breaking heat all this week coming

    looks dull..im not looking forward to another yawn fest..aka..2010..2012..2014...2016..England must be the most boring team in word football...
  18. Sunny Edmonton has weirdly dropped to 11.8c..due to some strange cool/cold nights for example on the 12th we had a max of 25c and a minimum of -3c..apart from a blip midweek..temps staying in the mid to high 20s for the next week or so.
  19. weird spring here so far...first half was very cold and snowy..second half has been very warm and sunny so far...

    any good young British manager's out there?..i would love to see the like of Sean Dyche and Eddie Howe get a shot with a bigger club but it wont ever happen
  21. Edmonton averages 290 hours of sunshine in May which is nearly 9.5hrs/day
  22. 26c and sunny today with Humidity of 15%..sheer perfection..how often would you see that in the UK?
  23. there are similar articles that appeared in the late 1930s stating that there had been a rapid rise in the amount of ice melt in Greenland since the turn of the century and the whole system was in danger of a catastrophic collapse
