The Weather eeerrrrrmmm!!!

May 11, 2016

Hold your hands up if you remember those heady days of your youth,at this time of year playing out till your mum/dad called you in for supper and bed???? how/why because it was not raining . Yes being a gardener I look foreword to have a bit of rain of a night (notice night) then work or bask in garden,even do a couple of jobs on the outside of the house , cutting a wood supply for the next winter during the sunny days . We have our grandkids visit us and being city kids the garden and local countryside is great to let their hair down,football,trampoline ,mini golf and the quad bike , even going to the sea side . BUT what is the difference this year ,well really it started last year as we had a great Easter 3weeks or so of SUNSHINE ,then rain most weeks the rest of the year. Well this year it hasn't changed except Easter was feckin awfull ,now into May we've had lots of winter weather ,you know snow ,hailstones fairly regular and of course RAIN,the only difference between October/November and May is the rain is warmer and no heavy winds . Now the educated ones are telling me it's our fault burning all these fossil fuels and too many cows farting , so being a good guy got a car that has very little harmful exhaust gasses try an recycle everything even got a bio septic tank ( expensive ) collect rain water in buts ( that's easy) ,about cows I'm not going to be a vegetarian and I like milk on my porridge and in my tea ,anyway got feed yourself haven't you. The powers that be have built wind farms all over the place and I see them in the sea off the coast of Wales from the ferry, the problem I see if it's down to MAN all this global warming is that we have 7billion or people on this planet and getting larger everyday ,and they have to have 21 centuries goodies ,like food,heating,cars,lighting etc etc oh and mobile phones ,they all need power to produce or work. Complicated you say ,eh ,I'm the guy without an "O"level to my name and I'm supposed to believe all this science gobble gook , then there other educated people who are saying its down the Earth doing its own thing,that I can understand after all I've seen "IceAge " the movie and dinasores didn't have a BMW or the like ,so the juries out on who I believe , that still doesn't explain why it's rained with such regularity over the last couple of years in Europe and other parts of the world (Australia) no rain for 4/5 years  yes a conundrum ...all I know is now when we leave home we have have a BROLLY close at hand . Yes I've booked Goa for Jan/Feb next year ,got to get the sun into these old bones .

Bob. By now you and I and loads more in UK have seen this happen more years than not, so we should accept this as normal, until the weather lords (whoever they are) decide we have now had our turn at being windswept, freezing cold, totally drenched and wrinkley skinned therefrom, but who else can they mistreat in our place?? The Germans would start WW3 if they took the task on, the froggies would retreat to their trog caves, while the other European hordes would dig a hole and lie in it. No change there then....

Now I think but then again I could be wrong "SUMMER" has arrived ,now I'm waiting an expert to tell me that the "big" yellow ball in the sky is producing too much Co2 or a monoxide of some description and we have to turn it off ......at least the Channel will be warm for Albanians !!!!!!!

Bob, methinks you need to get a better pair of wellies...... ones which come up to your hairline...., and no holes in the soles...  Just a thought, I always try to look after your welfare...
