  1. We hit 32C on Friday. It went overcast way earlier than forecast though, about 2:30pm, and it was 24C by 5pm. It rained for most of the afternoon. What a joke! next weekend looks far sunnier.
  2. I have people from the far south, hayle & St. Ives on snapchat. They’ve had loads of good days this summer. They’re always on the beach or swimming 20C in cornwall with the sun fees like 30C here. Their sun is so strong.
  3. Jesus. This is the worst summer I can ever remember. What’s worse, we look forward to June and July for 10 months. Only for it to turn out like this. The UK has become an abysmal place to be in terms of weather the past few years. Unless you live in cornwall, they’ve had a good summer.
  4. So far, this is the worst summer I can ever remember. Fits in nicely with the rest of this write off of a year really. never been less tanned in July in my life.
  5. This is shaping up to be one of the worst summers I can ever remember. Yes, we had 3 hot days in June. But so what? It’s high summer. It’s windy and damp every day, it hasn’t stopped raining for weeks (other than the 3 day break) and even then, it rained on the third day. I feel like it’s really making up for the amazing spring. Starting to wonder if we will have a summer this year? Because let’s face it, August isn’t really summer, it doesn’t ever deliver and the days aren’t long enough.
  6. We absolutely smashed 30C here today! Lovely afternoon
  7. We had the worst rain I've ever seen last night. It flooded even the hardiest of roads. I was out doing deliveries and it made for very hard (fun) driving conditions. Frequent lightning, thunder overhead. Luckily I can adjust the stiffness of the steering on the car, so when the roads are bad, change mode and it makes it easier to control the car in difficult conditions. Loved it. If I can't have an actual summer this year (June is my favourite month of the year) then I guess thunderstorms are the next best thing. More forecast today but as always, they're very hit and miss aren't they.
  8. Drove to Bolton yesterday to pick some stuff up. Rained most of the way there, was quite lively and cool. Little one wanted to go the beach so we drove to Blackpool. It was scorching and sunny. Sat on the beach with a couple of coronas. Must say though I’m missing the proper sunshine that May offered. I’m wondering if we will see a proper return to summer this summer?
  9. Our wheelie bins have gone flying and the trees have been stripped of thousands of leaves. There’s debris everywhere, fallen branches, it’s horrible!
  10. What’s even stranger is that last nights precipitation looked juicy on the radar but produced nothing but a little bit of drizzle to the ground. Everywhere still bone dry, you’d think with an ex-tropical storm blitzing through, we would get some rain with it. Not like I’m complaining. Next week looks better. Sunshine and warmth
  11. Well, I did not expect strong winds like this today. Come downstairs to my greenhouse blown over and the garden trashed. Really unseasonably strong. Hope it doesn’t last too long.
  12. Hiya mate. Yep same here this morning. Temps were really plummeting last night, we fell below freezing for the first time in a while with a min temp of -1.3C which is astounding for this time of year in these parts. Not good for my plants. We are hovering around the 12C mark at the moment. The sun still being the saviour and it’s still warm enough for sunbathing due to the light winds. No cloud again. Shame it can’t continue for a few more days.
