I’d just like to let you know that the weather here has been pretty rubbishy for what seems like ages. Down here we’re not getting the floods they have oop north, just lots of rain, and indeed yesterday some hail too.
This has a vaguely serious side. Clearly, one summer (or lack thereof) doesn’t make for a trend; but its one answer to those who say “global warming; oh good Blackpool will be like the french riviera”. It might just get warmer; but more likely weather patterns will shift; and who knows it could shift to excess summer rain.
