It rained during the British summer. Quite a lot, in fact.
Other news just in:
Sky 'colour of spectrum between yellow and green'
Nose on face 'plain'
Anyway, this is another excuse for the textbook 'there was weather' story from the Mail, which we've seen popping up every now and then to fill a bit of space.
All you need to know about the weather is that no-one - not even the Met Office - can accurately predict what will happen beyond the next five days. So what does the Mail say?
With summer making such a soggy retreat, at least a crisp, gold-tinged autumn is just around the corner.
After the gale-force winds, that is. And yet another dousing of torrential rain.
It seems August's weather washout is to be outdone by a September of squalls.
Poetry, David Derbyshire; sheer poetry my love. Good that you're a more accurate forecaster of weather than the Government body set up to forecast the weather (and guess who's paying Mr McStalin!?!?!?!?!)
Anyway, let's get to the comments, because you know what we're going to find here. There can't be climate change; it's been RAINING!!!111eleven1111
Notice the green gang have been quiet for some time now.
Still waiting for these arid, dry, Sahara summers and wondering why the average temperature is still not going up.
I'm sure they'll be out on the next hot day to announce that the world is about to end because of our polluting lawn mowers.
Never mind, at least the roof turbines we'll have to have soon will be turning well.

Tee hee John, yes that's you told the world's scientific community where to get off. Oh, but just as an aside, this story on the BBC about horrendous ice retreats in Canada might shed new light on the subject. Though I'm sure that's just leftie green fascist scaremongering...
