  1. This thread is called moans and ramps, isn't it? So what's the big deal? If you read the "Model output discussion" thread there are dozens of people who keep repeating for the millionth time how awesome it is to break heat records and who constantly root for hotter and hotter temperatures. Why is this behaviour allowed in an "official" thread and frowned upon in a thread called "moans" it's beyond me... Or only heat lovers are allowed to post?
  2. I don't think you should go this way, because you're going to lose big time. Has been proved that heatwaves cause globally more deaths and destruction (wildfires and so on) than cold and rainy periods. So stop trying to make everyone guilty just because they don't like having like you, constant sun and high temperatures for months please!
  3. I couldn't agree more. Amazing day today. Hopefully the rest of summer will be like this.
  4. I don't understand why my post got deleted. This thread is called "moans.." so can I at least say that I do not enjoy this kind of weather? Is this allowed or not? Or is it just for getting excited about the records? Because if not I don't even see the point of this thread and of the forum honestly
  5. Thank God! Extreme heat stay well away from our beautiful island!
  6. I don't know if any of those who constantly root for extreme hot weather have really experienced that...I am sure they have not. It's not just the number od "deaths" that matters, that's just a part of the story. For personal reasons I have lived for many years in a country where the weather, during summer, it's exactly what you "dream of" (high humidity, no rain for months, max temperatures constantly above 35°) and believe me it's a nightmare in terms of quality of life. You can't breathe properly, you sweat even if you don't move, there is nothing you can do (other than staying indoors or napping) during most of the day and you have a constant feeling of feeling tired and headachy. Not to mention the toll that a weather like that takes on the environment (everything is brown and dusty, wildfires, water shortages etc.) . It's really beyond me how you can root for that kind of weather when here in the UK we have the best summers of the Western world (and hence the most beautiful landscape). Really and with all due respect but you don't know what you are talking about.
  7. You should be happy since this is what you have been rooting for ever since the summer started...
  8. I can see that a lot of people are overreacting to the point of getting ridiculous We come from months and months of temperatures that were way above average and now after not even a week of temperatures slightly under average you are all complaining and moaning like it's the end of the world... If you like months and months of temperature constantly above 25° and little or no rain at all during the whole summer you are living clearly in the wrong country. I suggest you all move to some country in South Europe till you still can before Brexit kicks in
  9. The reason why people are very disappointed at this winter is because we have been promised Narnia and tons of snow with alle the "positive background signals" for months. First it should have been early December...then 'wait it's going to be mid-December'....then 'be patient and we will have a white Christmas'... then it was 'ok nothing has happened yet but mid January for sure!'...then 'well ok, but from the 26th of January on it will be memorable!'...now it's going to be 10th of February. Then it will be the end of February and soon the winter will be over. Let's be frank here, like it or not on a scale of 1 to 10 this winter has been a 0. And it looks like nothing is going to change anytime soon. Time to move on I suppose...
  10. Amsterdam...don't get me wrong, nice city but waaaaaaaaaaaaay too crowded and too many young punks drunk.
