Well March ended with a bit of a bang. We had some reasonable weather and Monday, the last day of March, was superb. The sun was bright, the sky blue and it was warm. In fact Porthmadog, which is about 15 miles from us was the warmest place in the UK hitting 19.8C
Then the bang. Around tea time the rain came down in buckets and we had thunder and lightening. It was all very dramatic. I’d forgotten I’d left the computer on and so, of course, the power flickered and off it went. Note to self – save more frequently. 2 hours work vanished to electron heaven.
Now I’ve heard rumours that we’re going to have a hot summer and the season has certainly started off well now but last time I predicted a hot summer it ended up as the wettest ever. So fingers crossed other peoples predictions are better than mine.
