At midnight we had a huge storm in Bath. I had to stay up for a bit to make sure the guins were OK. Thunder, sheet lightning (unusual for Bath) and rain, rain, rain.

And today it seems as hot as ever. Brrrrr, as Scarby would say.

I wish we'd had a storm here - it is so humid I can barely breathe.

Pigs are fine thankfully as they are indoors and I have lots of precautions in place. They have cottoned on to the fact that if it is very hot I give them extra veggies and now demand them even more. A shop usually lasts me a week but I only went on Thursday and can see I will have to go for more today!

no rain in Shropshire yet either :(, cant wait for it to cool down. I have had enough of it now. I know that makes me a spoilsport but being stuck in a stuffy, no air office thats like a sauna all day is not much fun.

I heard on the news this morning we are going to have a very hot August also.

I heard some thunder last night, and it clouded over, but it was nothing substantial. We had a little bit of warm rain too.

OH! LOL! Thanks for the clear up. We measure with Farenhiet, so I guess that's the difference. :D ;)

I looked it up on the internet. The most accurate way of converting centigrade to farenheight is

centigrade x 9 divide by 5 + 30

Or
you go to BBC weather and click on the button that says "view this in Farenheight" ;D

Yes I find the button thing easier too. Not so taxing on the old grey matter ;D
