Which or weather
Today was a Which or Weather Day.
I was pottering around this morning and decided to try the Interweb for a drop of a weather forecast. The Interweb decided it was having a day off. I could see it was there but I couldn’t connect. Would I see about getting it fixed? Would I leave it until later? Did it worry me? Did it, fuck!
We went for a bit of a drive. It was a real scorcher of a day, with ne’er a cloud in the sky and the temperatures reaching levels that would have Irish farmers writing to the papers [They always complain if it’s too hot, too cold, too wet or too dry. They just are professional complainers].
We stopped off in a couple of towns and ended up in a wee spot called Vihiers where the local cafe proprietress couldn’t do enough for us because we are Irish. I gather she ain’t too fond of the English. *cough*
We got back latish and the owner of the place here was wandering around. He has been trying to entice us to use the indoor heated pool, and each day he ratchets up the temperature by a couple of degrees until we agree to have a swim. Apparently it’s now at 30C. Heh! Why do I think of lobsters?
Just as he was leaving, I remembered the Interwebby thing and I mentioned it to him. I told him to reboot his Wifi. There may have been a glitch in the translation somewhere as he gave me a funny look. Leastwise he fixed the problem on his own initiative by rebooting the Wifi. Why do I bother?
And the weather tomorrow can basically be summed up in two words.
Did you ask the owner about the hidden underground bunker? Was it purpose built as a bar or was it something left over from WW2?
Well, you’ll be glad to hear that we too are basking in 15 degrees of liquid sunshine while you are away!!
“Cough” everyone has a soft spot for the Oirish, commonly known as quicksand. “Cough”, “Cough”. see your “Cough” and raise you one finger.
TT – It had the sort of feel of a shelter. It looked pretty old. I wasn’t going to mention I had found it, as that way he can’t blame me if all the booze goes missing.
Not Green – If yiz all behave, I’ll bring some sunshine back with me.
Patrick – Everyone loves the Irish. They have one massive redeeming feature in France – they ain’t British. I didn’t make up the rules. Take it up with Sarkozy or whatever his name is.
I’m on a ship in sailing the Atlantic ocean and just watched the sun set on the horizon…ahhhhh vacations are sweet indeed
interwebby slow on water…on a ship sailing on the Atlantic
Atlantic, France, fukkit, It was bloody lovely here (Ireland). Sunny, warm, just like a summer. I wonder will Sarkozy and his EU wankers impose some sort of tax for it on us.
After the shite summer we’ve had, it might be worth it if we could get more.
Well my outdoor unheated pool is registering 30C at the moment so eat your heart out!
…..but we’re getting a bit desperate for rain. Could you arrange to send some, I gather you’ve got more than you need?
Meltman, today the weather here is humid and bloody raining again, fukkit.
I would gladly trade some of the above for your Sunshine.
Can you organise the transport?
Between last Sunday and yesterday we had over 16 inches of rain. The river just crested at 9 feet over flood stage. It’s been a wonderful week. This comes after we had a hurricane run through here bringing rain and really wild winds that knocked power out out for most folks around here and just before that we had an earthquake. Well at least it’s not boring around here.
Climate change ?
Natural Weather Events?
Anyone that thinks nature can be brought under control and used for any purpose other that what is natural is nuts.
King Nut – Al Gore.
Enjoy the weekend weather it’s forecast to rain all week.
Cat – Just watch out for the icebergs. They can be a right bugger.
Slab – Make your mind up. First it’s “bloody lovely” and then it’s “humid and bloody raining”? There again, that is about par for the course for Ireland, I suppose.
Meltemian – Sorry I can’t help out with the rain. The most we have had in the last week was an hour of mizzle. [can’t make it’s mind up whether it’s a mist or a drizzle]
Brianf – A couple of hurricanes and an earthquake? Nice one. Life ain’t dull!! My highest ever single scrabble score was adding “thquake” after “ear” on a triple word bonus.
TT – The weather may change, but TT remains the same.
Patrick – When it comes to nature, we are as significant as the pimple on a wrinkle on a flea’s left ball.
