Yes...had to pop out for some shopping earlier and took the Skoda as I tend to for shorter runs. Was "interesting" trying to keep it going in a straight line! Hadn't realised it was that windy.

Time to dump the tool box back in the boot!

Then the following year we had a three month heatwave.

As reported here below.

While looking for more info on the heatwave I found British Pathe had some video of that summer.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vP6hCx5_pYs" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


It shows a Dyane front at 5.41 and a GS rear at 5.50.

When the camera was turned around it appears the GS was following the Dyane.

Although to notice those, I had to look around the other front, and rears that the cameraman filmed.

Looking at the comments after viewing the footage they mention about the camera(man) and his wondering mind and wandering and eye and lens. It also has been identified as being filmed on the Kings Road in London.


So what weather have we got for this summer or the next, it seems to be all over the place like the camera above was, and there was a small heatwave here during April this year.

It was meant as a generic "your" as you are based here, and the image was from the web.

By poly-tunnel you mean a greenhouse sort of thing? New terminology for me.

I suspect your ground stays pretty warm there without any assistance.
