    That it is actually bloody summer!! It's chucking it down here and a bit cold too. Is everyone getting this weather or just us in N.Ireland?

    [​IMG]

    And has anyone noticed how Global Warming is now called Climate Change! I wonder did they make a small whoopsie when choosing a name the first time? :think:

    I'm sorry but you are wrong. It is clearly winter. It has been raining since 0230 so is obviously winter. Derrrr!

    Yeah the weather's shocking here too. It was particularly grim yesterday, and everyone I spoke to said the same... South Wales - rain, London - rain, Manchester - rain, Bolton - rain, Ipswich - rain, Clacton - rain. Did anywhere get any sunshine at all yesterday?

    So we can have a barbeque for my birthday then? Awesome! :)

    Regards,

    Rob.

    Someone said yesterday that we had a month's average rainfall in twenty four hours, and evidently that had been officially confirmed. If this summer turns out to be a repeat of 2007 then I'm going to seriously start thinking about emigrating.

    P*ssed down *ALL* day yesterday here in devon *sigh*
    Kind of glad I decided not to bother with festivals this year. I love them when it's sunny, but in this kind of weather it's like being in a muddy refugee camp, albeit one with live music & expensive food/beer.

    The weather up north always fluctuates, a bit of everything in a single day. I miss the weather in Ipswich. It's a lot better than up here.

    Was very dark and cloudy here till just after lunch time today, then the sun made a brief appearance for a couple of hours, and now it's back to being cloudy and overcast.

    From tomorrow, I'm off work for 4 days so hopefully the rain will stay away.

    Just looked on Metcheck and it is indeed to be nice. I'm working on our Summer entertainment program, so that'll be me sprawled out on a deckchair enjoying the free music and "scenary" :eyebrows:

    It's actually quite nice here at the moment, though a bit breezy. Hopefully it will stay dry over the weekend till I get some gardening done.
