    It is, it's amazing :D

    I see the Evening Standard is reporting a September "blast of summer" coming soon in spite of the fact that it's being forecast nowhere at all. Typical clickbait article.

    Oh, and the Daily Express is predicting temperatures of 31C :cry:

    This has honestly been the worst summer I can remember for some time, in terms of hot sunny days. I might look up some statistics to make myself feel better that I'm not just imagining it. Last summer during COVID was obviously one of the better ones so it makes this one feel extra bad.

    EDIT: The Sun reckon the worst in 10 years. Yeah that'll do. Case closed.

    It's currently 18/19c here and overcast, it's absolutely perfect for being out walking it's really nice.

    Yeah same. Last year makes it feel all the more ****.
    Heating has come on a few times this month. If this is the new norm I'm emigrating. Because its absolutely garbage. Probably just a bad year. Here's hoping.

    Just feels a bit of a waste of time to live somewhere 2 or 3 weeks out of 52 is the weather you like.

    Delightful temperature, its been the perfect summer, garden needs a bit more rain though, been dry for a few weeks now.

    Seeing the next 14 day forecast makes me giddy with excitement, 17c to 20c all the way. Lots of good night sleeps, no hay-fever, no unbearable temps when pc is on, no need for fans and AC units in the house either so lower leccy bills.

    And summer 2021 closes out in a cool, grey whimper. Not unlike the rest of summer really outside of the couple of heatwave weeks.

    I'll definitely be getting a vitamin d test some time in the next few months. I've been borderline deficient before and that was during times where the UK had actual summer weather. And on that note, I wonder what these kinds of summers will do to aggravate covid?

    Up here in the North, prior to the last week and a half, there has been 6-8 weeks of pretty much unbroken sunshine, hardly any rain and not many days below 20c. That seems a good summer to me (for people that like that)?

    I did see upthread that map that showed a different picture for other parts of the country.

    I hope not. That sounds way too hot! We could really do with some rain, it's not rained for a prelonged period of time for ages.

    Hopefully it's the 2nd or even 3rd to last hurrah. Summer owes us this year and there's still plenty of time to do it in. :p

    I envy anyone who doesn’t have to wear a suit for their job! We just had newly refurbished rooms too, but of course they couldn’t stretch to air con :( (there’s no shortage of money to do it)
