Not Happy Another Washout?

Is this summer (and i use that term lightly) going to be another washout like last years? Here we are, nearly in June, and the forcast...RAIN!!

Last year was a total loss, and this years is shaping up to be the same. I dont know about anyone else but i reckon this country has to rate amongst one of worst to live in, what with crippling taxation and unseasonal weather.

When are the good people of Blighty due a break?

Would be interesting to hear of other countries suffering too...might help me feel better!!!

I do remember a few hot days over the last bank holiday. As that is particularly rare in this country maybe i should have expected it to rain for several months afterwards to keep things in the balance.

Re: Another Washout?

It would be nice to get a dry weekend so that I can do some jobs on my car. I think there has been 2 since I got the car in february.

You can guarrantee that if you have anything planned with dry weather in mind, it will do the complete opposite. I am planning to do the wifes brakes this weekend. Damn sure i will get very wet doing it.

Re: Another Washout?

I'm pleased to see the rain. It hasn't rained here for at least a fortnight.
