Although we have a few days of early decent spring weather, the long term forecast for the UK for April and May is more unsettled, cooler and wetter than usual , hope it is not correct :yucky:

I loved our winter this year. Barely any snow, really warm (I don't think there was a single day with -C° degrees in Febraury) and at the end of Feb and start of March nearly approaching 20°C and sunny like noone business. Yeah, I love me some winter like that. I hate the cold and I hate driving to work on snowy and icey roads. I wish any winter could be like that.

Now it's a bit rainy here (and it's looking to be like that for the next week), but still with mild temps between 10 and 15°.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Don't care about the weather usually, but I'm really loving the spring season so far. Snow storms and still in the -20s if you include wind chill.

At work many people were making a joke like "At least it's not gonna snow in August" but now that's a definite possibility. There's a decent sized snow storm going on right now. If it was winter I wouldn't say it's that bad (maybe like 5 cm or something) but for the end of March that's 5 cm too much.

We're coming into summer now, so it's been quite hot the last few weeks. Most days it's only been high 20s, but we've had a few low/mid 30s days as well. It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have to leave the house. The other day it got to 33 or something and we were shooting in this tiny cramped room for some of it and then we had to shoot outside and I was dead. I went to the shop a few days ago to buy some linen pants because it's too hot to wear jeans anymore.

For days when it's in the 30s, there are these new pants with most of the legs cut off. Still have pockets and such, but they only come down to your mid-thigh or almost to the knee. Can't remember what these shortened pants are called, but they're right handy for extremely hot weather.

3/4 length? I can't wear 3/4 length clothes, I find them too uncomfortable :shrug: I needed pants mostly because of work. I can't wear shorts today because I have work straight after school, and I could just pack pants as well but my bag is pretty full.

It got to about 4-5 degrees the other night, I had to get my electric blanket back on my bed, with 2 heavy blankets, jumper, pants and 2 pairs of socks to survive. Still better than being hot though :P

a week ago it was around 100F/37C for about five days - now we're back in the 60s/(15-21C) - it's not unusual for June to be cool, but we usually don't have an intense heat interregnum
