Autumnal weather??!!

Ok we have howling gales and pouring rain with about a temp of 16 deg!!

Don't tell me it's still lovely and sunny down south then?!!

My son has just spent 5 days on Raasay (a small island just off Skye - which is another small island just off Scotland!) He was on an adventure holiday and it looks like they probably got the worst week of weather this summer! Luckily they were in accommodation and not camping out as it looks like they have had worse gales than us over there. Nevermind he is home today!

You will be escaping it all soon Caroline? When do you head off to Corfu?

21oC, overcast with occasional showers down in Wales at the moment.

I love it, would you care to swap as I much prefer cold, wet, windy and freezing weather to horrible sunshine.

Ha ha

15oC today and the new combi boiler is doing a cracking job of maintaining 21oC indoors - new born baby and all that so needs must.

I have to admit to putting my heating on yesterday as well as a pair of socks!

Slightly milder today - at least the howling gales have stopped! All the plants on my patio are leaning in the same direction now!

Steady folks!! That last heat wave was the unusual thing for NE Scotland, what will you do when winter comes??? Like this year, it may last through April, ask any natives!
Karen, I hear they may build the first public space flight shuttle in your back yard, Sigma will definately be on point for the first pics.

Re: Autumnal weather??!!

Am I reading right????? You guys are needing your heat on?? Weren't we just having a weather conversation awhile ago? Didn't it just finally turn hot for you guys not that long ago or am I crazy?
Still hot here! The air conditioner is still running! Its only August! We spend last saturday at the lake swimming off the boat and on jet skis!!
Where is it you guys are again? I am always hearing jokes on tv about canadian weather, I think it should be your weather they are talking about with the cold!

Nicki - our summers are always very short and gradually coming at different times of the year. I think British weather is definately a lot less predictable than yours. You always seem to have nice hot summers and snow in the winter.

It has cooled down a lot down in London at the moment too. We are averaging 20 degrees at the moment but it is quite windy with lots of showers.

I am sure we will get a bit more sun before it is all fnally over - we are only mid August at the moment.

Karen we are off to Corfu in 12 days 21 hours and 34 minutes............... As you can see i am quite excited - I just really hope the airport situation has calmed down a bit by then. Should definately get some sun there - the last two times we went temperatures were averaging between 32 and 38 degrees!!!!

Re: Autumnal weather??!!

We spent 2 weeks in Benitses Corfu, some years ago, and it was great, especially the Winter Palace at the top of the hill. We also hired trial bikes and explored all over the island. The north was peace full and seren ic while the south was busy and very active(18-30). Benitses is in the middle, fantastic, would certainly go there again. Loved Kerkira town.

Re: Autumnal weather??!!

Sun is out again today - looks like that low has shifted at last! It's hard to work out what is normal these days Jill - I know our summers are never too glorious! Natalie's birthday is in July and I can remember going to the beach on her 3rd in fleeces and jumpers because it was so cold! This year of course it was bikinis and sun hats!

It never ceases to amaze me how changeable our weather can be up here! One week it's a heat wave and the next you have your heating on! Mind you, the heating only goes on because it feels so cold compared to the week before - if this was April we would have all the windows open and celebrating the gloriousness of Spring!

Have to admit though, would still rather have our unpredicatable summer with the downpours and gales than the heatwaves they get down south. Couldn't get over the "scorched earth" down there compared to our lush green fields and gardens!

Yes Jill - very exciting news! Hubby is already looking into working with them when he leaves the airforce - how cool would that be! I am sure Sigma will be making its presence known! All seems a bit science fiction at the moment, but we should know within the year whether or not Lossie is to be chosen!

Just in case any of you think Jill and I have gone mad - thought I had better provide some proof!!

Nicki you certainly do live the life dont you!! Hot tubs, parties, jet skis boats! You do realise you are going to have Caroline on your doorstep soon don't you!

I think I have lived it up if I spend the day on the beach with a picnic! Mind you I have to say - I wouldn't change it for the world!

Re: Autumnal weather??!!

Im praying that the weather picks up in Cumbria for the end of August or this will be another year of sitting freezing and damp in a tent at Silloth! Actually we are going to sit in a field in the middle of nowhere as the Solfest is on (music festival) so it is well worth it. The proclaimers are headlining this year so cant wait. After that its off to Crete, and hopefully finishing this years holidays at Budapest to do the Christmas markets.

Liz

Ps, to stingy to put the heating on so have a nice this wooly jumper on....just wish i could remember where i put my thermals!
