UK weather
« on: 06.06. 2016 18:33 »
If you think we in the UK are always banging on about our horrible weather I can tell you that today is splendid with clear blue skies; it maxed here at 24º! I've been woodworking and have sawdust itching inside my teeshirt. When I've had a shower I'm going out on the Beeza to blow the cobwebs off!

I'm usually teasing you all about the great weather down here. It's been atrocious in my neck of the woods for the last few days. I had to drive the ute to the bike club meeting on Sunday.
Cheers

Yes it was beautiful evening down here in the Essex badlands. I took a late evening ride out into the lanes on my Nimbus. A gentle run through the descending dusk under a clear sky with just the con trails taking on a red tint as the sun disappeared westward. Pulled in to a wayside inn for a pint of foaming ale, lifted in salute to the poor buggers who had to head up the beaches on mainland europe some 72 years previously. All much appreciated.

and it's brilliant up here in the NE, busying myself laying flags around the bottom shed making it a bit easier to roll out the Flash.

BUT in true Brit style I'm going to complain about Thursday, someone said it's going to rain

Never tell people your troubles. Half of them are not interested and the other half are glad you're getting what's coming to you.

How weird can it be. This side of the pond we're having thunderstorms with heavy rainfall and local floods every day since last week...
Thursday and Friday should be dry though. Seems like the UK will be getting some then. Sorry...

Well today is the shortest day in the Southern hemisphere,
which means from now on the days are getting longer & more sunshine..   *wink2*

The opposite here of course! We've had wall to wall rain for weeks here. Today looks better so I'm planning to give my new rear sprocket a test drive.

 The afternoons have been getting longer since the 11th, but the mornings will still be getting shorter for another couple of weeks- work that one out  *conf*

 There was a bit of weather on Sunday floods in some places- like next door , fine since then, but cool, I be heading off soon 5.30am; still dark and down to 15º (11º predicted), might have to wear a coat and gloves again *eek*
