Any body else find it hot yesterday.

21% in Northants yesterday.

Now that was registered in my Brother in laws garden which can be a bit of a sun trap but noticed quite a few folk up town in short sleeves.

Just wondering if that is the start of the weather that we can expect this year.Plenty of Sunshine followed by another Hosepipe ban.

And we all know what happened after the last hosepipe ban.

When I saw the thread header I wondered what you meant by 21 percent in your brother in laws garden. I thought it referred to strong drink.lol.

Nice one Chronos the 2nd.

I was going to type degrees on to it but was not quite sure of the spelling.

Quickbeam's post confirmed that my spelling would have been correct.

I used to be quite good at spelling but that was a long time ago.

Yesterday +12.5C here in sunny Oxfordshire. Not shirt sleeves yet but it did make for very pleasant gardening.

Chronus I was equally puzzled, but a good thread title, as I just had to read more :)

Well yesterday I had to spend several minutes removing ice from my car -1deg and fog, warmed up slightly to 3deg but fog worsened. Today very cold damp and a little fog. East coast south of the Humber.

On the subject of fog; do the drivers that switch their 1 candlepower sidelights on in thick fog ever notice the others that do the same, and think to themselves, how really useless that level of illumination is?

Lovely day yesterday in God's Little Acre, though I have no idea what the temperature was. The morning was quite cool but the afternoon was shirt sleeve weather in the garden. I just sat looking at it with a nice cold beer in my hand. (Just in case it never happens again this year of course). You have to take advantage of the good weather when it occurs.

I was a little puzzled by the per-centage sign too in the title of this thread. I normally use "Alt and 0186" on the numbers keyboard. That gives me this º which I use for the degree sign. No doubt others have different methods of getting to it. I have a printout of the symbols I use most which saves me going through the "Insert-Symbol" method But my list is mostly German umlauts etc., for when I am writing to my friends in Germany. "Alt and 0128" gives me the one I use most which is the Euro sign. €.

Nothing worse than driving behind someone who has left their fog lights on when the fog has lifted.

A little spot of rain earlier on here now the sun is trying to pop out.

Yesterday traveling over the Lincolnshire Wolds I experienced both problems. In daylight the high intensity rear fogs are not a problem, but when traveling the narrow lanes of the Wolds the cars with just the sidelights or non at all, are a complete menace.

Still very cold, wet and foggy here. Heating on full blast and I'm still cold.

I've always thought that there are three categories of invisible daytime drivers:

  1. The "I can see ahead very well, what's the problem with you"

  2. The embarrassed to be seen with lights on if it's not dark.

  3. The complete dolt, that's completely oblivious to any change in driving conditions.

It's 25 C in my geranium seed propagator - 5 C outside my house - and I'm 'stuck in the middle' at a room temperature of 15 C.
