10 to 8 this morning 27c.
1/4 past 11 36c
need rain

snow sounds good to me laugh.gif


10 past 3 it was 38c and now AT 5.30 when I park the car at the warehouse it is 33c.

I like your winter temp Bilbo I could live there.
The problem here in winter is it can drop to 10c because Joburg sits at 1750 meters just under 6000 feet and when it snows on the high mountains the cold wind really drives the temp down

i dont know where albunol is but i have had several winter hols in marbella and loved it...i always think its funny when the locals have coats on and we are in shirtsleeves

vice versa for me,I go to Glasgow in Summer,and I can`t leave off my polo necks and jackets and the locals are in sleeveless. I know I look out of place

Taurus I can assure its not been too warm this year.
I went to Perth WA 2010 and ended up buying heavy shirts and heavy jacket.It was the coldest ever
and politicians were saying some residents had to choose between heating and food.
Sounds familiar.

I´ve heard from quite a few folk who have been over at the west coast and have enjoyed great weather.

did the big yin really say there were only two seasons in scotland winter and july? thats not my recolection when i was a boy...i can remember getting sunburnt more than once but i can also remember going to school in a balaclava! freezing fingers and snow!

In the early 50s can't recall the exact date, there was a heat wave in Scotland, Glesga included! that melted the "tor" between the cobbles and we dug it oot played wi it an'came hame wi oor claes ruind. Never happened again.
