Weather.

It looks now that the rest August is a write-off, so that's the whole summer bar one weekend.
It's not funny anymore.

Agreed - even by our usual wet standards this is taking the proverbial.

We had 2 stunning days but it has rained without stop for the rest of the time - and not just light rain - torrential downpours. The rivers look like they normally do in December!!!

Sunny today though.........

Is it just me or does May seem to be the better month these days, or is that cos the others are so bad it just makes it look good ?

It was the same last year - May was stupidly hot - I joked "That was our summer" and it proved to be spot on!!!

Stop moaning. You live on an island with a maritime climate and that's why you get rained on. Get over it or bugger off.

The rainfall was DOUBLE what it should have been - the wettest since records began in 1766 - this is NOT normal..............

From one of our weather stations at work, the figures look like this (mm)....

YR MONTH TOTAL
----------------
08 1 13.2
08 2 12.2
08 3 56.4
08 4 55.9
08 5 34.5
08 6 44.7
08 7 70.4
08 8 17.5

Roll on autumn

You don't need a surf board for surfing, just come down to St Anns with your rib when there's a sensible wind from the south west - plenty of surfing opportunities and you don't even have to get wet if you get it right

-Alex

WTF would you know about 'maritime climate'?! Existing in Central Shitesville.

I suppose this weather is good for you, any sun would f**k the glue on your 'Japs-eye' and the dissolve the PVC.
