Weather rant

Yes, you heard me!

Mother Nature! I want to shoot her! This weather is driving me, people, everybody nuts. It is raining and/or cloudy ALL the time!!

We have 1 hour of sun and 23 of rain. A day of sun and 1 week of rain!

3rd of June and it's 15 degrees outside, what the !!!!!!

In Quebec, woods are burning all around because it is too hot and dry! It's really bad there!!!

Rant over

Yes indeed - all the way until Sunday by the looks of things! (I'm out of here). Make the most of Saturday.

At least by sometime later this month it starts to be a bit more of a sunny summer if I remember right - and everything is surreally green after the weeks of moisture.

Re: I want to shoot that B****

What really annoys me is when I ring my family during the day and my Mum takes ages to answer the phone because ... she's sunbathing in the garden (as it's 24 degrees), and my partner is drinking iced frapuccinos to try and cool down.

What lovely sunny city do my family live in? London. This is not fair.

A couple of weeks after we moved here (it was mid-May) we had a hot spell and were cursing the apartment for not having a/c. Two weeks after that we realised it was not so necessary! The next year again it would have been nice - for about 10 days.

Re: I want to shoot that B****

I don't know what you are all going on about, i think the weather has been lovely. But then, I have been corrupted by the 40 years I spent living on a windswept, rainwashed rock on the far edge of Europe.

Tell me about it! I left Montreal 6 years ago because I could escape the shitty weather...

I miss Istanbul...

What do you mean in a few short weeks?

Normally she is complaining that she is on heat.

Re: I want to shoot that B****

After three absolutely awful summers in the UK, I was hoping for a bit of good weather. I've only been here for two months but the weather's worse than Liverpool! Hope it gets better soon

Re: I want to shoot that B****

I thought this was normal weather for this time of year. It don't remember it being much different last year, or the year before that, or the year before that even.

Summer IME tends to arrive at the end of July where we have a couple of weeks of stupidly uncomfortable scorching weather. If past experiences ring true this, and the entire summer will be brought to a close with a massive thunderstorm mid August, and we'll be back to rainy grey again.

At least we don't have droughts here
