Herman - I've been in the UK for a couple of weeks now and the weather has been just great
To say that summer has come early is an understatement - we have had "wall to wall" sunshine and blue blue skies - there is an extreme shortage of water and the UK has a "hosepipe" ban - no cleaning your car or watering the garden with that long green thing with a yellow end. Old folks have been suffering from heat exhaustion and the "ice cream vans" have been doing a roaring trade. The tar on the road surfaces has been melting and air conditioning units have been working overtime.
Hope the weather stay like it is today for when the Queen goes down the Thames in her open topped barge in June - she deserves a good time, poor thing.
She came to Salisbury on Tuesday and the roads were blocked all day - just great.
Sun just coming out here, 1:30pm (southern California). Been a little rainy, cold and miserable for the better part of the week, but it looks like the sun is coming out just in time for my Thursday afternoon round of golf!!!
