I know that this topic might lead to global warming as today has been very strange weather-wise. Started off by being bright and sunny in the morning, changed to heavy cloud and rain in the afternoon. By late afternoon we had hailstones. Now we're having thunder and lightning. Never known (or I can't remember) such variations in a single day.
Richard.Sole and N47. , thank you for your strenuous efforts to reply (pertaining to the topic) and being able to supply links as well. Must have been particularly hard for you. Your efforts are appreciated.
Yes the season is definitely changing at the moment. Temperature down to a miserable 29 degrees today and a chill in the air as the local girls are now beginning to wear tops with long sleeves. Ah well you can't have everything.
I spent ages last night trying to explain to locals what hailstones were as many had never seen them before especially during a football match.
Can't wait to see a picture of HB inside his Glasgow pub wearing what I presume to be from its description an Andes hat.
