Another silly statement from my local radio

The latest news and weather report.

The weather forecaster said:

"there is a medium risk of sunburn"

It has been raining here since very early this morning and is still raining now.

Perhaps they meant rainburn?

My local radio station weather forecaster often states that there is a risk of an odd shower. Occasional shower I've seen but perhaps they are expecting it to rain cats and dogs - hmm perhaps they are right after all!

What's with all this pedantry?

'Odd' can be used perfectly correctly to mean 'occasional'.

I have encountered sunburn when the weather has been overcast.Admittedly,it wasnt in the UK but if it can happen in spain then the same could be true here.

It certainly can happen here.

The reflected light from white overcast clouds can cause sunburn

A couple of years ago I spent three hours (on the patio) assembling one of those flat-packs which claim to need twenty minutes!!!

I was doing it on an overcast day and the sun never came out.

That evening my shoulders and upper back were most definitely cooked and I was lucky no to have sunstroke.

Next time,if my wife insists on buying something like that, she can do it herself!

I have to admit to being truly awful at putting flatpacks together: the diagrams never make any sense to me, and threre's often a screw missing (or is that just me? ;)

pavvi, it's either something missing or something left over when you think you're finished!
