Cardiff is actually 5th highest rainfall in UK - Swansea is 1st - not exactly a record to be proud of!!!

We also get the highest winds on a regular basis - the winds are mainly South Westerlies coming in off the open Atlantic - 3000 miles to build and they then get funnelled up between Ireland and Cornwall - Swansea is at the neck of the funnell.

West coast of Ireland also gets it bad but they don't have the funnel effect to make it worse. Scotland is also pretty bad but they get some shelter off Ireland.

What I can't quite work out is the winds at the moment are Northerlies - in theory Swansea is sheltered by the whole of the UK from the North but we have STILL got some of the highest winds!!! Just can't win!!!

It is so unfair - we also get less snow than most places but at least the Brecon Beacons are only 26 miles away - they usually get pretty wild!!!

All down to the bloody Gulf stream - apparently it could change direction in quite a short space of time - if it did we would be like Norway - hot summers and GREAT winters!!!

When you look at a globe it is suprising just how far North Britain is - even the South Coast is further North than Quebec and Newfoundland.

........and, apparently South Wales has replaced Essex as Chav Central. Which adds up as the Welsh Rugby team wouldn't look out of place in the English soccer premiership in terms of Tatts and bad hair.
