I am old enough to remember the summer of 76. It was amazing but I think this summer is beating it. And I am up north in Aberdeen! Have you caught yourself wishing it would rain??
Right now we have thunder and lightening. We had a pretty spectacular storm last night. But I am sitting in the lounge at Aberdeen airport hoping my flight isn't delayed!
It is only a record because it happens at an official weather station, your back garden may be higher but it does not count. There thats got rid of your five minutes of fame - Sorry.
Not that long ago interpid reporters from the BBC were broadcasting from towns and villages cut off from civilisation by snow. What nobody can tell me is how the BBC and its full production crew. Reporter(s)Cameramen, Sound Engineers, Wardrobe (Note how they wear the latest designer gear on camera) Make-up. Director of photography, Script Editor, Runner, Assistant Producer, Producer and all the rest
Some years ago when I worked in Keighley the TV outside broadcast in Blizzard conditions was spectacular, except it was from the middle of a roundabout on the bypass - Traffic was flying past in both directions but according to the reporter nothing could get in or out of Keighley due to the conditions. All it did was prove that you never let the truth get in the way of a good story.
Some days we get sun or rain or snow or all three - it is called weather and here in the UK we get a variety.
Not sure that everybody believed me ( OLYMPICS, Test matches,Wimbledon etc were on) but the combination of the heat and the illness made walking more than a couple of hundred yards a misery. Didn't get to standpipes fortunately altho' my future M-I-L was having to cope with buckets down in N.Devon:-D
