Welcome to my strange alternative world of wargaming with toy soldiers: a game for boys from twelve years of age to one hundred and fifty and for that more intelligent sort of girl who likes boys' games and books (HG Wells, Little wars)
To be fair, I'd say that's a British summers day. I'm about 400 miles north of you and the weather's exactly the same here!
Its not been to bad in Brum today sunny with the odd shower quite warm. Yesterday was bloody awful all day
The rain actually woke me up this morning!!!
In North Carolina for the second week now we've had temperatures ranging from 95F to 103F, and the only rain has been part of severe thunderstorms. I would gladly trade you summers if we could keep our gentle winter. lol
Perhaps the best part of "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" is when Allan Quartermain is told to dress for "an English summer", and it is pouring cats and dogs when he arrives.
Dear VladdThat would put you in Inverness, or Aberdeen?J.
Aberdeen, Furry Boots town.
Dear VladdHaven't been that far north in years. Did a couple of summers collecting nematodes on Loch Ness.I drove once on a friday from Aberdeen to London in one trip stopping only to refuel (me and the car) and eat on the weay. Hit London on the friday night rush hour. Reached the car park at the BM to drop off the car and reversed into the car park pillar. Could have wept.
Dear BrummieUsual British stratified weather. That pic was taken in Hertforshire, not a million miles from you.J
Dear RayOh yes, by God it rained on the N. Kent coast.J
Dear ChrisWe generally have mild winters in southern England. This year the temp seems to have hardly alterred fron winter to summer. But yep, your summers are fierce.J
Dear ACDefinitelya good joke,J
Ah yes, how English.
Its not summer, its the rainy season.
