    We don’t know the meaning of ‘hot’ or ‘cold’ weather in this country

    15C and pissing down, soggy cycle home, I’ll be thinking of you all with your horrible evil sunshine 🙄


    Got back from Cyprus at 4am this morning where its properly hot !!!
    was pleasantly surprised by the English weather when we landed, airport temp gauge was reading 18 degrees !


    Quite like it when it’s blazing hot or freakily cold it’s more of a challenge…

    We do however know the meaning of very changeable weather within a short space of time though. Couple of days ago it was wet, chilly and miserable. Now, it’s lovely and warm. Takes a bit of adjustment. Give it a few days of this, and we’ll all be better adjusted to it and it won’t feel quite as extreme.

    Just one weekend ago, I was lying in a tent somewhere in Herefordshire I think it was, fully clothed, in a sleeping bayg, feeling cold. Last night I slept naked without any covers. Big change in a small space of time.

    Having visited both Bangladesh and Norway, I understand we do tend to somewhat exaggerate the extremes of temperature we get in Britain, I agree.

    The main feature of our weather is unpredictability at any time of year.

    Even our changeability isn’t impressive compared to some places.

    Spearfish [South Dakota] holds the world record for the fastest temperature change. On January 22, 1943 at about 7:30 a.m. MST, the temperature in Spearfish was -20°C. The chinook wind picked up speed rapidly, and two minutes later the temperature was +7°C

    Can’t imagine that. You’d be walking along all wrapped up in puffer jackets and then ‘aargh christ I’m boiling!’ stripping off like a mad thing.

    Been pretty humid and muggy all day here.
    But it just broke big-style and now we’re:



    It hit 38ºC in Croydon earlier. Didn’t really feel like it though…….must’ve been the gentle breeze.
