Have I been reading too much Daily Mail ?
I think theirs a lot of romantacism about weather .. eeee the summer of 76 et al
I agree it does go in cycles , were just going through a bad one ATM. Actually the last good summer I had was '04 cos I had 3 weeks of stunning weather which happened to coincided with my usual sojourne to the West Highlands
So I remember that one well, but for sure it didnt have the consequences of 76
Infact .. the scaremongers were blabbing about a drought as early as May this year.. god knows what the'd be saying if they had to live through another 76
Despite the greater reporting of wild weather events, I dont think they are really any more unusual today, as to what they were years ago, its just that they get greater prominence due to our media
