I had to drive to Buxton today, about 30 mins away. I thought, in a fit of excitement, I might take the Fireblade but the weather looked changeable so I didn't. And boy am I glad. Started to rain as I went up the A6 then as I got to the top, it turned to snow! a few mins later and I'm driving past white settled snow fields.

It is May, isn't it?

Foooooooookinell. That is bonkers. I reckon you'd have got good odds with the bookies against that in May.

I'm going for a game of golf on Friday, and Coasteering on Sat, followed by clay pigeon shooting on Sunday. I wish I'd booked something that at least had some indoor options...

Digs.

Well that's the grim and ghastly North for you.

I sent my butler, Bantin, out to inspect the weather and he informed me that it is, as always, mild and the gentle breeze is scented with wild garlic and freshly baked bread.

From the skool of dodgey fact's if I recall correctly:-

It snowed in June 1976, and that year we had the longest hottest summer ever recorded Met Office: Great weather events: Summer hot and summer even hotter in 1976

Does this mean we will have a blinding summer? Hope so, but not holding me breff :shade: :ip::rain:

I remember the press had a field day going on about how London will become a dust bowl, and all sorts of crap like that. Then some Indian chappie did a rain dance, and it rained for about 3 years (well it felt like 3 years).

Global warming? a new ice age? load of £ollock's

How did he find the time, surely he was refereeing the Nelson Mandela versus Lady GaGa billiards tournament?

It's all the fault of this bloody Con/Lib government...
I think they should be called the CoLD coalition.

I remember in 1976 during my 4th year exams back in Marple (Manchester), June or July I think and a cricket match was snowed off at Buxton. Back then we were terrified that it presaged a new ice age but a week or two after that, there started the best British summer I can remember.
