After very high (32)C temps last week we've had rain and fog over the weekend, spoiling the Air Show at Sunderland ( based at Seaburn Colin)
, and now torrential rain and thunder storms ...... yesterday, many thousands of lightning strikes across the country. British summer!!!
Oh my, you sure know how to give out the wrong ideas...
referring to giclée print made - I know you are joking, but just read an art scam in the news tonight around an American lady sued and scammer put in jail.
Yes, just saying to my daughter in law who is off to your side of the pond , you will have to take double luggage... stuff for hot and stuff for cold. I have lots of friends in UK and I was watching the news the other night where the bods in London were jumping into fountains, the Thames eeek
and other unhygienic places to seek relief.
It is almost incredible to see UK vary so much within a week. I so feel for everyone over there... our temps are often 40+ and stay like it, but there is a huge difference between dry heat ( ours) and humid like you have.
When its really hot here, most people who don't have air con can go spend a day in any shopping centre, public place, library etc in the cool.
I was a bit taken back when the news reader mentioned that London was not equipped with the necessities for cool.
That is so difficult for the aged and infirmed.. I wonder how they manage.
Cheers, (fingers crossed everyone for rain in south Africa and mid land NSW aus. ) not my area, but we should all care about each other just the same.
