Is anyone more optimistic than I am that we MIGHT have a decent summer this year?
LOL as they say!
I have no evidence to support this beyond it being a while since the last hot one, but I do think we're going to have a good 'un.
I'm no scientist but I don't think that's 'technically' evidence.
Where I live it rained 3 times that I remember between May and September last year and was scorching for most of it :)
Just wait till late August when with skin tanned like leather and a voice hoarse through dehydration you croak, "When will it ever rain again...?".
Well, that's my prediction. It's a good one for a day when the snow's still not thawed completely.
I miss snow and stuff but I really am not sure if I will ever cope with the terrible British climate in my dotage.
Message to spring: get sprung.
This all depends on where you live really doesn't it. We had no more than about 30 days without rain or stinking fog to some degree last year where I am in Cornwall if I counted correctly. This year we've so far had one sunny day and I think it's possibly the only day without any rain. Many of the rainy days have also been torrential and coupled with wind that sounds like it's gonna take the roof off oh and many days of flooding. Hot summer down here? No chance! Seriously considering leaving the westcountry because of the weather alone.
Further to this, in December 2011 and for a week either side there was not a single day where it didn't rain here. Six f***ing weeks. That was nice.

Guys, what happened to the thread on the recent parliamentary vote?
Also, in Sweden it's real chilly!
I've been pleasantly surprised at how the passing autumn and winter havn't been weeks of continual rain in Sheffield.
Quite pleased, as a mate moved to Sheffield in the summer and I hoped she'd have more a 'classic' autumn and winter, rather than the dreary warm and windy rainy ones we've had in the past.
Along with the warmth and rain there's been some snow and frost and sun and blue skies. I have been outside a lot though, means I actually get to experience the nice weather.

You're in Sweden and you're on UKC? You addict. (:-))
Moved here for 6 months for work, so loneliness lead me back here again.
It's getting better, though!
Ah, I see, oops. You'll make friends soon i'm sure. (:-))
Just seems to take a bit of putting one's self about IME.
At least for 'doing stuff' friends that is.
Yeah, I've met lots of ace people! And got some fun exciting stuff lined up. Thanks, though.
Just miss one tiny person a lot. Be r8 though!
Also, I'm on here for the Marriage business =-)
sorry to hear its all a bit grim over there still :)
But i for one am really hoping for a good summer as it will be my first back in the UK for 4 or 5 years....very happy to have missed last year's!
Last year was particularly poor though.
